Learn my 5 tips for having healthy meals every night without meal planning. Making 3 meals a day does not have to be complicated. In fact, it is super simple! I've noticed that when people want to start cooking from scratch, they think they need elaborate meal plans with dry erase boards neatly filled in with three meals a day.
Baked blueberry pecan oatmeal for breakfast, Asian pesto curry for lunch and almond crusted parmesan tilapia for dinner...
(I just made those titles up, by the way, but they really do all sound fabulous.)
Just do a quick Pinterest search for "Paleo Recipes" and prepare to be overwhelmed.
I love a good crispy coconut chicken with squash and parmesan fritters as much as the next person, but maybe for a Saturday night special dinner, or a night when I have a little extra time to spend in the kitchen...
Which is pretty much never.
I am a mom of six small kids!
If you think you need to make Paleo safe coconut tortillas for every meal, that plan isn't something sustainable . No wonder people limit their healthy eating attempts to 30 days.
Eating real food can feel so overwhelming when we hold ourselves to these standards!
What ever happened to good old fashioned meat, vegetables and herbs?
Back when my grandma was a mother of young children, I imagine she cooked a whole chicken, baked potatoes and maybe served it all with a biscuit and canned jam.
No fancy recipes. Just real food.

The GAPS diet played an instrumental role in reversing Laura's son Sam's dairy intolerance and gut related symptoms associated with it. Listen in as she shares her story with the GAPS diet, and I share our experience as well. It truly is amazing what our bodies can do when given the right foods to heal.
This is the GAPS book we referenced: https://www.amazon.com/Psychology-Syndrome-D-D-D-H-D-Schizophrenia/dp/0954852028/ref=sr_1_2?crid=10NWM7KWIW3RA&keywords=gaps+diet+natasha+campbellmcbride&qid=1579558618&sprefix=gaps+natas%2Caps%2C176&sr=8-2

Cast iron has been my skillet of choice for many years now. There are only two things that get better with age in the kitchen. One is cast iron and the other is homemade sourdough starter!
WHY CAST IRON IS BETTER THAN NONSTICK
Reason #1, of course, is it doesn’t have all the bad stuff. Nonstick pans are coated with a carcinogenic chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid. Not only does it leech into the food when cooked at high temperatures, but also produces toxic fumes in the air. Not to be overly dramatic, but you need to get that stuff out of your house ASAP.
Although the health concerns with nonstick was what drew me to using cast iron in the first place, the ease and beauty with which they cook kept me coming back for more. A perfectly fried egg, potatoes so crispy you can hear the crunch, a carmelized sear on a roast to seal in all those delicious juices…I mean, if you aren’t cooking with cast iron is it even cooking? Give me that 20 pound skillet that gets better with use every. single. time. If I go on vacation, and the condo has a flimsy nonstick and a plastic spatula, I cook like I have one hand. Totally handicap.
Cast iron’s where its at, my friends.

Sometimes in this world of Instagram, Youtube and HGTV it might seem like everyone else is pulling off massive renovation projects in just a few months' time. Endless budgets (or unrealistic more likely) and several contractors make it all happen. The renovation story of our last farmhouse might be a little more relatable. We bought it for a super cheap price, lived with the ugly (other than a little paint) for several years until we paid it off. After that we used a modest budget to slowly finish the project. Our cheap little fixer upper was eventually featured in Do it Yourself Magazine and Flea Market Style!

In this first episode of the Simple Farmhouse Life podcast, I'm talking about things you don't know about me and my family. As a full-time content creator, people make a lot of assumptions about us based on a very limited glimpse into our lives. It is time to set the record straight on a lot of these!
