  1. I couldn’t agree more—make small changes that will LAST, rather than making yourself crazy & trying to do everything all at once.

  2. I love this! I discovered Nourishing Traditions about year ago, which led to bloggers and it’s become a giant snowball since then. I am TOTALLY the monkey with ideas in a tornado. OOH OOH OOH! It’s nice to hear someone say it’s ok to take it slow instead of “switch to raw milk NOW or your family will surely die tomorrow!!!”

    1. Karen, the blogs are what really suck you in! Daily there are so many wonderful ideas shared that it makes us want to do everything now. Slowing down helps us take a breath and think about what things are doable with our lifestyle and observe new changes to see if they really fit. I have started doing things like hanging my clothes to dry on nice days and making all of our toiletries and cleaning products, but don’t even think of taking away the TV or Internet! Making the right choices makes it stick.

  3. That’s me! I want Little House on the Prairie with my modern conveniences. It’s a little hard to get my husband on board with changing all of our food, since it would take away his only real treats (extra butter microwave popcorn and store bought cookies).

    I have started changing our cleaning products, since that’s my department. He doesn’t really have any say in what I buy/use to clean the house as long as it works.

    1. Carolyn,

      By experience, I find that quietly making changes brings them on board faster than trying to convince them. 🙂

      You can make some amazing popcorn with real butter and unrefined salt. We don’t use a microwave any longer, but there are a ton of recipes for microwave popcorn using unpopped kernels and a paper lunch bag. No more need for the scary chemicals and unknown ingredients.

      Keep them on hand and let him know that you have the ingrdients for whenever he is willing to experiment. Maybe you can get some popcorn flavor recipes to try too.

      I love that you are making changes to make your family healthier!
