Okay, I admit it. I’m excited! My first guest article, “Get Cultured, Invest in Stocks & Take a Long, Hot Soak: Next Steps in Getting Off the Food Grid“, appears at SimpleMom.net today. The post builds on a Maggie’s Nest article from a few months back called De-Centralize Your Food System. In that article I outlined the first three steps one can take toward becoming less dependent on our centralized food system of “Big Ag” businesses, food manufacturers (think about that phrase for a minute!) and supermarkets. Today’s article at SimpleMom.net takes you further down the rabbit hole of food independence, showing you three easy ways to make your food more nutritious while saving money at the grocery store. Nice, eh?
If this is your first time visiting Maggie’s Nest, welcome! You might enjoy reading some of my other food-related posts, including How to Make 3 Meals from 1 Chicken, Bone Broth 101, Traditional Fermentation 101, or How to Make Homemade Yogurt.
Recently I started my journey on the GAPS diet in order to heal my gut; I’ve since learned numerous 20th and 21st century ailments that have been successfully healed with this diet. If you’d like to know more, click to read What’s GAPS? and Why Now? or, 5 Ways to Make Intro Easier.
I talk about more than food here at Maggie’s Nest, so please feel free to browse around in the various categories. Travel articles are in the “Wandernest” category; posts about creative process abound in “Nurturing Creativity”, and more philosophical articles about family, home, living on purpose, and practicing self-care area also littered throughout the site.
I hope you enjoy your visit and come back often!
