Preparing …

This is the beginning of a journey. Right now we start getting ready. A lot needs to be prepared to travel smoothly. Our journey will start with Ash Wednesday and end with Easter. Some would call it a fast. I think it is something bigger than that. We are going to only eat pure foods. I wrote up the rules under The Fast. The reasons why we do it are complex and simple at the same time (Check out Why We Do It). It’s spring time. Our bodies and minds should be clear and fresh.

However, before we can see what experiences are waiting for us, a lot of practical things need to be prepared. Cutting out everything processed isn’t easy. We are used to a lot of convenient helpers when we cook. And even though we tend to think that we already eat pretty healthy, we have to face the truth that there are a lot of things we use on a daily basis that are really not pure and not healthy.

Here are a few things we really like. We are going to spend the next couple of weeks to a) make them ourselves or b) find alternatives.

  • Mustard
  • Broth (boxed or in cubes)
  • Hot chocolate
  • Crackers
  • Pasta
  • Soy sauce
  • Barbecue sauce
  • Flavored coffee (decaf)
  • Granola

 And probably about 155 other things we can’t even think about now…

I invite you to be part of this journey. The preparations start now. We start traveling on February 22.

    Nothing better than the smell of homemade chicken stock from the bones of an organic chicken left to steep for hours and hours. Hope you share recipes that you enjoy for these products.
