This past summer, I decided that 2019 would be a year of not eating processed food.  I decided to get a bread maker and practice over this half a year.

So far, it has gone quite well.  All meat comes from either the farmers market or butchers (it is sooo yummy), fruit and veg comes in a weekly organic box, and bits and bobs (olive oil, soy sauce etc.) I’m getting from the local health food shop.

I have not tried making bread yet.

Though the initial outlay for quality meat and vegetables is quite high, when you don’t eat out at all, it is actually cheaper – and you get to eat better quality food.

I am doing it slowly, and not replacing things until they’re finished – because I can’t afford it – but I’m excited.  It doesn’t feel like a chore at all.  Just like I’m having treats all the time.  Man, you should try these organic pears!

  1. I too started to eat organic in the past few months. It’s almost impossible to do it 100% everyday with there being 95% convienience junk food on the shelves where I live, and not nearly enough organic selection. I too recently found an organic farm that delievers every week which really helps but meat is a tricky one. I’m still searching for a good provider!
    Well done to you and keep at it, your health is your wealth!

    1. Agreed and I’m not sure I’ll ever make 100% either. Have you tried Riverford meat? They deliver. I much prefer the farmers market meat which is free range so I’m sticking with that.
