Price was a dentist who travelled the world in the 1930′s and studied peoples diet and how this diet corresponded with their dental and overall health.

The more I learn on this real food journey the more I discover that I have to learn.

We started on real food over 3 years ago because it made sense from a stand point of eating foods as close to the way God designed them as possible. At that time, we didn’t get the [...]

Living “off the Land”

What kind of foods are naturally abundant where you live? Do you have access to foods from the sea? Maybe produce grows easily in your location? Could you ’live off the land’ and maintain (or develop) excellent health? Studying the native cultures that Dr. Weston A. Price visited, it is apparent that there was not [...]

I know there are several foods from my childhood that I still enjoy. Particularly I like lemon meringue pie. I have a very vivid memory of my dad making one of these pies [...]

Beauty Tips, Mosquitos and Grubs- All in one Post

I’ve been thinking about doing a post on natural beauty care. But to be honest it would be a super short post! My “beauty routine” is almost laughable. No fancy products or special treatments.

The Book that Started it All

My Well Loved Nourishing Traditions Book

Our real food journey started in January of 2009 with the book Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon Morell and Mary Enid. That book opened up an entirely new way of thinking as far as food and nutrition was concerned. Among other things Nourishing Traditions showed me that saturated [...]

Hi and Welcome! I'm so happy that you have found your way here. I hope that you will find useful information in your real food journey. Our real food journey has changed over the years to include a small two acre farm with a larger 20 acre farm in our future. I'm excited to share our busy, and sometimes crazy, adventures as we learn new things. We're also working hard to be completely debt free so you'll find information on finances and general frugality along with various family adventures plus the occasional 'odd' category depending on what's going on in our world. Thanks for joining along! ~ Millie
