I feel like when I master one area of our "food overhaul" another thing comes up to capture my interest. It's been a very line upon line process, for me. Which is funny.
My newest obsession is wheat. Last year I bought a grain mill and...it sat. Untouched. I was scared of it. But this weekend we (and by we I mean Isaac, of course) got it put together and we ran our first "clean out the machine" round. I'm reading everything I can on grains (in general) and wheat (specifically) and soaking / sprouting. I'm trying to figure out what I should embrace and what I should let go. I know that grinding my own flour will be an easy no-brainer to implement, but anything more than that, I'm not sure.
It's difficult to weed through all the information that is out there. I very much want to fully and completely embrace the whole foods diet (and, truly, we're doing well!), for all of us, but every time I get one thing down, my brain finds several more areas I feel I should improve. We've completely switched to steel cut oats only. In the summer, I only shop the farmer's market. We eat granola. I make bread. I get overwhelmed and tired and have a bacon egg biscuit from Chik-fil-A. Sigh...
I wish I could just let myself off the hook, realize we're doing really well and leave it at that. And read. With clarity. That would really help.
