Organic Family

I have been recently thinking of many ways I can ensure my kids health and I think that a big way is to eat organically. I know that on our budget it is very expensive to do this so we have tried to figure out ways to eat organically for less money. And that way seems to be by doing it all ourselves. We have planted an organic garden this year and I am very excited to feed my kids fresh organic vegetables. We also raise our own when it comes to beef, pork and poultry. I think this is very important. Even when it comes to milk. I recently heard that girls are beginning puberty earlier due to the hormones they are giving cows to inhance there milk supply. I never really thought about all the chemicals they ingest in our food and milk to make money. And can you imagine what they are doing for our bodies.
I have also tried to eliminate things with a long shelf life, I mean anything that you buy that has a experation date of more than a year from now cannot be filled with anything good for you. I try to bake snacks from scratch and I even make my own jams, jellies, and freeze all my own veggies. My husband and I make our own maple syrup each year with the kids and they love the time we share boiling sap. We have recently taken an interest in becoming bee keepers. My husband really wants to get into that and honey and bees for that matter are such a great source of natural healing.There are so many ways, as a stay at home mother, that we can all try and better our health and our childrens health.
Recently I have been curious how to make my own soaps, lotions and cleaners. If anyone has any recipes for those things please let me know and leave me a link to your blog so I can check them out.
I hope that I can continue to find ways to improve my families health and if any one has any questions please feel free to ask them. Im more than willing to help anyone lead a healthier life.
