I know you want to feel better and get better. You want to feed your family well without breaking the bank or sacrificing all of your time. You want to know how to make a healthy lifestyle work without becoming a slave to it. I can’t wait to help you learn about the power of real food and natural living.
When I began my real food journey in 2004 I felt constantly overwhelmed, and back then there was very little information online to help. It’s a LOT more doable these days, and I’m here to make it even easier for you so there’s no need to stumble along like I did.
- Start with these Rookie Tips. Take them slowly if that’s your style, because any steps you take moving forward mean you’re on your way, OR go hog-wild like I did and your family won’t know what’s going to get tossed out next! 🙂
- In the beginning I'd often say, “I wish someone would just tell me what I’m supposed to buy at the store!” So the whole first chapter of my book is a “buy this-not that” guide, which you can get here for free.
- If you wonder what my favorites are, that’s all here.
- Looking for a specific topic or information on the site? Learn how to find things easily here.
How will you know when you’re getting there?
Slowly but surely you’ll learn to be your own advocate, your own primary physician, to take control of your and your family’s health. No more sheeple. You’ll be ready and prepared to dig in and research instead of blindly trusting what we hear from those in a white coat, kind as they may be. You’ll no longer want symptoms managed with drugs and all of their side effects, instead you’ll find natural solutions and expect to be healed. Hopefully you’ll look here for help and support, because that’s why I began the Kitchen Kop blog and why I continue: to help you!
You’ll read ingredient labels and look for more foods without labels. You'll eat butter proudly. You’ll pack your kids’ lunches and snacks because you won’t trust school food anymore. You’ll be thankful for the farmers who grow and raise food in traditional ways so our families are nourished, and chatting with them at the farmer’s market will be a highlight in your week. You’ll realize that organic is important but it's not everything. You’ll no longer just avoid junk food (or make much better versions of it), but you’ll start eating traditional superfoods too, and may even sneak some liver on your kids’ plate. You might still love coffee (I do!), but also could be found sipping homemade broth on a cold morning. If ever you feel overwhelmed in the process, here’s help if real food seems too expensive or too time consuming.
