For some reason, I feel compelled to start sharing what my kids eat. I get a lot of snarky comments due to how I feed my kids, but it’s something that I feel very strongly about. They rarely have sugar, I don’t buy juice, and they eat whole, organic foods. Sadly, they didn’t have the best start in life health-wise, and I am doing everything in my power to assure that it doesn’t follow them through their lives. But this looks like a normal breakfast that you would find on any American family’s table, right? They had scrambled eggs, Monterey jack cheese, sausage, sauerkraut and a glass of milk. The only difference is everything, except for the cheese and milk, is from our backyard. The eggs came our happy, pasture-raised, organic fed chickens. The sausage was raised on our pasture and fed organic grain, produce that we grew and kitchen scraps. I grew and fermented the cabbage, apples and fennel seed for the sauerkraut. The raw jack cheese and raw milk were purchased from a small local farm store that I visit weekly. My kids are rarely sick, but when they are, it lasts 1-2 days, tops. This food is not taboo or hard to make, the only difference is in how it was raised and sourced. My kids deserve the best quality food that I can provide. They love it too! It did take a bit of a transition to get them to eat some of the healthier foods over the last 2 years but now, they both gobble down the probiotic-filled sauerkraut before even touching anything else. I understand that not everybody can raise their own meat or produce, but there are tons of local farmers you can support, to provide your families with nutrient-dense food.
