Let me start by saying that I’m writing this post as much for myself as for you.
We probably eat healthier than the “average” American, but not by much, and I know we still have a long way to go in embracing a more natural, whole foods diet for our family.
Changing your diet is never easy, and for someone who doesn’t enjoy cooking (or cleaning up the disaster she leaves in her wake when she does cook) and isn’t really very good at it, it’s even harder.
That said, I’ve found that it’s actually pretty easy to begin eliminating questionable ingredients as long as I focus on one at a time.

This month’s Eat Well, Spend Less topic is food resolutions!
While many of my fellow bloggers will be sharing specific tips for various goals & resolutions — everything from involving kids in the kitchen to wasting less food — I thought I’d share something a little bit different:
What if I told you there was one key that held the secret to actually changing your diet for good?
It’s not really a secret formula or hiring a personal chef or choosing the “right” diet.
No, what I learned from our experiencing transitioning our youngest daughter to a gluten-, dairy-, soy-free diet was that the key to successfully making any diet change is to have a comprehensive list of food you can eat…that you actually want to eat.
