new philosophy

Now that I have a toddler that eats and baby who's close to being a super nosher, I have changed the way I approach food. I am concerned about additives and ingredients that I can't pronounce, I don't want that going into my babies! I cringe at the thought of what that is doing to their wee insides.
So I've been making an effort to make everything from scratch. Everything.
It's daunting, yet rewarding.
I'm going to try to keep this updated with some of my more recent trials. I'll even include the flops!
I've been asked what my food philosophy is; I would say that it's whole food. Not the store, but the idea. I try to make things from scratch, with the purest, most healthy ingredients that I can. Oh and it has to be palatable to a toddler.
The cookbooks I love the most right now are:
Nourishing Traditions
Ani's Raw Food Essentials

I feel that my book choices show that I am all over the board in terms of style, raw, vegan, low carb and meat eater! But the general theme is to use whole ingredients.

So join me on my journey. If you know of somewhere to get more inspiration please let me know!
