Phase 3

Baby Kombucha SCOBY I got from a FNB acquaintance, raised on herbal Hibiscus tea

Entering into Phase 3 in our last month of debt reduction, before starting to save for Winter becomes our top priority.

As I've learning more about the Weston A. Price/ Traditional Foods diet, I've been trying to start making changes to how we prepare the foods we already eat. I found a great resource on how to implement small changes, called Kitchen Stewardship that goes along with our homesteading goals.

For this phase of our homesteading journey, the focus will be on more self-sufficient and traditional foods. Without further ado:
  • Making homemade pizza from scratch with soaked whole wheat flour crust (Mr. Greenie is a fan of this idea.)
  • Making and learning how to make homemade cottage cheese to reduce our use of packaging and learn basic cheese making skills
  • Making lacto-fermented mustard from scratch (bulk seeds to add more probiotics)
  • Making kombucha to replace any occasional soda and add more probiotics
  • Make homemade kimchee from scratch for yet another tasty strain of probiotics
    Here's to baby stepping our way to healthier guts (and bodies), the zero-waste and plastic-free homesteading way!

    The last week or so has been both busy and yet not much to write about. The clover cover crop is still growing well. We've has enough rain that I haven't needed to water. The chickens seem happy are producing great orange-yolked eggs. This means that the birds are healthy and are producing pastured eggs which are very healthy for us.

    I've been earning inbox dollars rewards and was able to cash out last week, so there's an extra $27 dollars. Also able to order my Amazon gift card I earned from Swagbucks. Thanks be to internet searches, surveys,and watching videos.

    I've kept up my Diastasis Recti healing workout and I just completed Week 6 of 12.

    Read some interesting books on Fertility and Breastfeeding health. One was The Whole Life Fertility Plan and the other was Beautiful Babies by Kristen Michaelis. The first book has many suggestions that come automatically to me as I follow the precepts of my Mormon faith, and other suggestions that come naturally to me as I try to implement a plastic-free/ zero-waste lifestyle.

    The second book focuses more on the Weston A. Price traditional foods diet, which I don't currently follow. As we are trying to get out of debt, taking a break to save for Winter, and then living through the slower work weeks of Winter; I will be implementing dietary changes very slowly and only as our budget allows.
