Around four years ago, we decided to make changes in the way we eat. After purchasing a load of grains and beans, a hand mill, and some storage equipment, we went for it. Well, kinda went for it. To say the least, cooking from whole foods was intimidating. We had some experience with semi non-processed stuff, but what to do with the real thing. Today, we can definitely say that we’re glad we started. That first step has turned into a life style change that has led to year around gardening, daily use of raw and whole foods, and live stock. I heard it when I was younger, can’t remember where, but it’s been true for me: “you gotta start to finish” We are not finished, in fact, we adventure routinely into new uses of our food storage. However, it’s not intimidating any longer and now we are good at it.
