My goal this fall and early winter, so far as meal planning goes, is to focus on the foods I have stored up from the summer; the chickens I have raised and all of the fruits and veggies I have grown and lovingly preserved. And, of course, the eggs I hope to continue to get from my layers. So, along with each week's meal plan I will include a list of what I had to buy that week.
Our basic food philosophy- eat foods in their most wholesome form. Eat a combination of cooked/raw/fermented foods. Include stocks and fermented foods daily, especially in fall and winter. Soak all grains and beans (exception- we do eat store bought whole wheat pasta, but I limit that to no more than once a week). Butter, eggs, bacon fat, and chicken fat are our friends:)
