I decided today that we are making the switch to organic milk. It is something that has been nagging at me for a while, and very suddenly today standing in front of the milk case while I was grocery shopping, I just knew that I could not buy hormone and antibiotic laden milk anymore. I just couldn't do it - even though a half-gallon cost as much as a whole gallon of regular milk, and even though my family consumes at least two gallons a week. I found this great website that has all kinds of information about the Bovine Growth Hormone used to increase milk production in dairy cows.
On the way home from the store, there was a super segment on the local Christian radio segment about moms cooking healthy foods for their children. The guest on the radio show has a website called Mom-a-licious and I spent some time checking it out earlier tonight. It was terrific. There is a cookbook by the same name. The website has recipes, and all sorts of resources and ideas for feeding your children well. One of the best resources offered is a segment on their website called "a fresh start", that details what to throw out of your pantry and what to add in. Very informative.
Happy Healthy Eating!
