I thought I’d dust off my keyboard and get back to blogging. After 2 birthday parties for my kiddos, 2 baby showers for my sis, another garage sale, my 10 year wedding anniversary, the birth of my Goddaughter, the start of t-ball and soccer season, countless illnesses to hit our household, in addition to balancing my growing baby bump…I was due for some R&R. I took a little hiatus from the blog and now I’m back!
This week I wanted to get some feedback to this video that came across my airwaves months ago. I’ve since revisited it, had conversations with friends and family about it and now I’d like your thoughts! I am in no way, a “food crusader” like the mom in this video but I do have a child with severe food allergies and asthma. Because of that, I am curious about how this has happened to my 3rd born when my 1st 2 children are perfectly healthy. There are so many theories today regarding the rise in food allergies, cancers and other illnesses that once were “rare.” This video isn’t food allergy or cancer specific. It’s mostly about bringing awareness to what my generation has been exposed to and how that is effecting our future generations and MOSTLY how these practices are still taking place. We are in NO way a fully organic, non-immunizing, grass fed household. What we are is a family that is learning more about what we consume and what we put into our children’s bodies. We are, as I have said, a PROUD single income family and we have a very strict budget. I have taken what I have learned and become very creative with how I use my grocery budget to put healthy food on the table as much as possible. I’ve decided to pick and choose those things that seem to be the most harmful to our bodies and found an alternative. I wonder though what your thoughts are about Robyn’s discussion in this video. It won’t take much of your time and it could truly change the life of somebody you love.
