So I posted this recipe before but apparently it has somehow magically been lost in cyber space. I have no idea why. Technology is great when it works for us but frustrating when it works against. Just today on our Facebook page we unveiled our business logo.
We are so happy with it and are excited to get it out there!

Another CSA delivery day and another bin of awesome produce from Orchard Hill Farm. As we move forward with the summer we hope to provide a page on the blog with pictures of the various fruits, veggies and herbs so that you can more easily identify what it is you got in your bin.
This week we once again picked some extra fresh strawberries. It was fun to pick the berries and to see the farm. Last week Shaun and Tom went to the farm and did the picking but this week Michelle and I got to do all the work. I have been to the farm a few times before but had never seen all of it. It was amazing to see the fields and see all the plants growing. Here is Michelle working hard and picking berries.

I have always felt that diet was an important part of being healthy. Since high school I have played around with eating different ways or jumping on different “fad diets” to try and gain muscle mass while staying thin. Each diet lead different side effects and in turn lead to me moving to the next “healthy” diet. For years I had been having stomach issues and had seen many doctors and specialists about it. They never came up with anything so they labelled it as irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). I took meds three times a day to try and help control it. Some days it worked and others it didn’t.

If you asked us over 3 years ago if my family and I would be following a strict primal/grain free lifestyle, I would have said you were crazy. But that is exactly where we are today, Primal and Proud. My wife, Michelle, introduced me to a primal lifestyle only after having sat in on an Eat by Design seminar with Dr. Jamie & Joel Richards at The Café of Life. We had recently begun receiving chiropractic care at The Café of Life and wholeheartedly swear by preventative health care and the Life by Design Model. I admit I was a huge skeptic at first. One of my groomsman, now Dr. Michael Egan (Chiropractor), was always discussing with me the benefits of chiropractic care although he went to Australia to finish school and open practice before I got started with adjustments. It was a few years of procrastination before I considered actually pursuing chiropractic care. I am so grateful we did because it didn’t only help us achieve better health but it led us to where we are today—Healthy Connections.

The final day of our commitment to show you what we eat in a week! While it has been fun plating our food each meal it has been so stressful to make sure that everything looks amazing. We hope that you have enjoyed seeing what we eat and maybe it has inspired you to try new things.
Homemade grain free cereal with almond milk
We make this cereal usually about once a week. We love it and it’s handy to have on hand for quick snacks. Our toddler also loves it.

The funny thing about this week is this is the least organized for meals we have been in a long time. We decided to do this week for daily posts because Tom is on vacation so it would be easier. In theory this is true but it reality it hasn’t been. We’ll definitely do a series like this again in the future and even share the differences in our meals when Tom works and I’m at home.
