Here’s the thing about eating a traditional food diet. It is time consuming. There is no way around it. When you source fresh ingredients, properly prepare your grains, actively ferment things in your kitchen, and cook three meals a day, you could go to bed accomplished. Add to that your job and/or your family and all the other chores that need to be done and it can be plum overwhelming.
That’s why I give myself grace. I am learning what I can handle without being a stress basket and I am finding a balance that works for my family.
For this reason I took a break over the summer from feeding my sourdough starter and baking bread. But now that fall is just around the corner and our schedule is calming down for the school year, I have finally started up a new starter.
Look how active he is after just two feedings! Hopefully you will start to see some yummy sourdough recipes from me soon.
There’s also an exciting Traditional Foods Bundle sale going on September 17th through the 21st. It’s a collection of 17 traditional food cook books for only $14.97. I can’t wait to buy one! I’m not usually a huge fan of e-books, but recipe books are nice because I can do a quick search for a recipe and then set my laptop in the kitchen with me as I cook. However, if you happen to try my lazy way of following recipes, don’t say that I didn’t warn you that a mason jar may fly out of your cabinets and completely dent your keyboard causing you to pull a muscle in your thumb because a blogger’s got to blog, even on a dented keyboard. Ahem.
Do you have a sourdough starter? Are you learning to give yourself grace during the busy seasons of your life? Do random objects fly out of your kitchen cabinets and destroy your electronics? I would love to hear from you!
