It's funny how being intentional in our living usually begins with the foods we eat and the ways we get those foods into our bodies. I call this The Beginner's Guide to Modern Homesteading, because these next several blog posts are the exact ways we began homesteading ourselves around ten years ago.
We have fluctuated in how heartily we have pursued the homesteading lifestyle, but we always come back around to it. It makes us feel better . We feel better about the foods that are going into our bodies when we eat more sustainably because we know where our food comes from, and the way it was prepared, by us, and without a ton of preservatives and non-food additives. The closer we get to our food's source, the better our bodies feel.
Keep a lookout on the sidebar for the Beginner's Guide to Modern Homesteading page, where you can find all those posts categorized neatly and ready for you to access. Our hope is that you'll take this information and run with it! Take it, expand it, make it your own version of every recipe, do it your own way, find your own source, and share your homestead successes with us, both small and large. Did you can tomatoes for the first time? Did you make your own bread, or start raising chickens? Did you choose meat from a local farmer instead of a chain store? Did you make pizza instead of ordering out?! Share it all with us and we'll celebrate those successes with you. Homesteading starts because you begin to make decisions about your health and life according to what makes sense to you and what makes you feel better. Screw the FDA and their messed up pyramid. You're someone who doesn't want others telling you what to do, what to eat, and where to get it--It means you choose to take authority of your own life, starting with this bite.

Mainstream is overrated.
