Week three wasn't a great week for me. I found that some of the assignments this week were for things that we just don't eat.
Day 15: What's a SCOBY?
This was the first assignment of the week, I'll admit that I'm just totally afraid of trying Kombucha. I don't know that I ever will. I'm happy to just drink plain water all the time.
Day 16: Get Cultured (Veggies, that is)
Again, this isn't something that any of us like. I might try this more when our garden is producing again.
Day 17: Making Yogurt at Home
I have tried this. I wasn't able to try it again last week though because it wasn't in the budget. I am hoping to try again this week.
Day 18: Make Cheese at Home
I have made mozzarella cheese at home once with raw milk and it turned out awesome. I will have extra raw milk this week and I will be making cheese again. I'm also going to try my hand at making ricotta.
Day 19: Preparing Seeds and Nuts
We just don't eat any seeds or nuts at our home currently. They aren't really in the budget.
Day 20: Maximizing the Nutrient Value of Beans and Legumes
Again, we don't eat any of these items at our home. My husband and kids just don't like them. We are a meat and potatoes kind of family.
Day 21: Relax and Evaluate
I really am enjoying this series. I would love to eat a totally TF diet but there are things that we just don't enjoy and I'm not willing at this point to spend money on items that possibly won't be enjoyed. I am finding that it's okay to say no to certain items and we can still be eating TF and be healthy. I am learning how to prepare certain items which is nice but I wonder if any others feel the same way. I believe that if we're hitting the major items in our home....raw milk, grass fed butter, grass fed meats, fresh raw veggies/fruits, and no processed foods then we are doing pretty good. My big goals for the up coming week is to conquer homemade yogurt since we eat a lot of yogurt.
