I'll let you know about the homemade sprouted grain bread. I'm starting the sprouts today.

I'll be curious to hear how the sprouted bread comes out. I love sprouting seeds, but I also love my carbs!

I've been away since 2008 when cancer reared up for a second time. I'm working hard to improve my nutrition and also lose weight slowly. I have set a goal to eat whole, unprocessed food for at least 2 meals a day. To do that, I dehydrate food, try to ONLY visit the outer aisle at the grocery which pus me through the produce, dairy for yogurt, and almond breeze, and I'm getting ready to start my fall garden in 4, 4x4 square foot gardening boxes. I know what I want to plant, but I'm struggling with how much to plant. I don't care if I have too much. But I would like to quit needing the grocery story or produce market for the veggies I can grow. I am tired of paying food manufacturers to make me ill with all of their additives.

I'm using the book, Eat to Live for recipes for making my own things like salad dressings. I'd like to hear of other resources you all use for recipes for basic staples.

I'm also using The Laurel's Kitchen Bread Book to make my own bread at least once every 2 weeks. I want to learn more about sprouted grain bread. Seems interesting and lowers carbs. The seeds are on the counter waiting for me to be brave and try it.

I like that... great memories of my grandma's cooking and her vegetable garden. I am also thinking about portions - my grandma was very fit and when I think about how she ate, it is clear that I need to keep that in mind. Smaller plates of REAL good food :)

I'm totally with you. My husband uses artificial sweeteners since getting diagnosed with diabetes and I keep my mouth shut 'cause he's a big boy, but I wonder what those chemicals do to his body. I like Michael Pollan's rule about food being something your grandmother would have known how to use in the kitchen.

well...1st off congrats on your 10lbs loss! in three weeks...amazing!!
i agree with you 100%! although i'm not where i want to be with the processed food either, i'm getting there. looking into organic and whole foods isn't hard it's just there are a few things that i'm having trouble letting go of. ;) it's a journey worth taking though so i'm on board!
that's awesome you a have a garden! i want one myself someday. :) i do enjoy going to my local farmer's markets and shopping around. it's good food and great exercise to just walk around and visit all the stands. makes for a nice afternoon for me and my daughter.
well...good luck to you and happy eating REAL FOOD. :)

Hi all,

I've been on SparkPeople for three weeks, 10 pounds down. I'm a "real food" person also. We have a small garden, I cook. I can't say I've completely gotten rid of processed food, but I definitely eat less than I did a year ago, and less than most people eat.

I think the thing that makes me crazy about many dieters is that they'll eat lots of garbage just because it's fat free. They'll eat NON FOOD because it's fat free, or is lower in calorie. Some of the meat substitutes out there are just nastiness! And, honestly, I used to be there, too!

So, as I'm getting more confident in Spark People, and looking for the groups that will help me on my journey---I think "real food" is important, not just to our weight, but to our health overall!

"Be faithful to that which exists within yourself." Andre Gide
