eye opener

As most of you know, I've tried my very hardest to feed Atley and Avery the very best food I can. As a result, they are wonderful eaters, and each night as they are eating what I call "mush" - a mixture of avocado, goats protein powder, flax seed, vitamin C Powder, and probiotic - I am so grateful for what I've learned.
Just tonight I happened upon a blog and was once again reminded of the food/obesity epedemic occurring in America. If you have time to read this blog, please do! If not, please at least watch Video #4. What a great reminder to eat the foods the Lord provided for us, even if they are poorly advertised and highly overpriced. He ended his post with this verse: "Whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God" - 1 Corinthians 10:31

*Here is the blog http://thebleeckerblog.blogspot.com/
*You'll have to scan down to the March 12th posting - its the 3rd one down
*It's long - but worth every minute of reading....REALLY! We all need our eyes opened to the marketing schemes and streams of lies on the food labels.

Happy Reading and learning!

Hey Shelly...I love that you are so cautious with feeding your girls. Brody is only 4 months but as he is getting older and I know that food is going to be introduced at some point, do you have any other advice? I want to make my own food as well, what food grinder do you like? Take care!! Keep us posted on your pregnancy!

This is Kara Looney, I know you through Angie...and follow your blog about those sweet girls! I have been giving probiotics to my kids (Culturelle for kids) but haven't heard about the benefits of of the goats protein or the flax seed...but am really interested, where do you buy the stuff and how do you mix it for them? ANd do you know of any other probiotic brand for kids, Culturelle for kids is the only one I've found without all the sugar, but it's real hard to find and expensive too!

I would so appreciate any input Thanks! I love your blog :)
