Food Panic. PANIC! - Evolved Mommy

Food Panic. PANIC!

I haven’t blogged in a while because I have a post that I want so badly to write, but so far it has been stuck in my head. Since I’m totally intimidated by the amount of information on the subject and can’t seem to find a starting place I’m going to just write (hopefully, daily) and see if it works itself out.

Here’s the deal: My husband and I live on a very small grocery budget because we are paying off the last of our debt ($50,000 two years ago is now $4,000). We are also desperately trying to get out of this wretched town (okay, so maybe I use an unneccesarily strong word). So our budget for food is teeny tiny.

Here’s the problem: I’ve watched “Food, Inc” and I’ve listened to “In Defense of Food” (book on CD) in my car for days on end. Basically, I’m now a Michael Pollan disciple.

And…

I am COMPLETELY freaked out about food.

My husband is beside himself. We’re shopping at the local natural food co-op, which costs a GAJILLION dollars every time we walk through the doors. Okay, actually it’s been surprisingly less expensive than I thought it would be. Turns out I was spending a lot of money at Wal-Mart even though my grocery list (thank you e-mealz.com) was only $50.

That place has lots of shiny things. I’m easily distracted by and attracted to shiny.

Anyway, I’m still trying to digest everything I’ve seen, heard, read re: the fact that EVERYTHING I’VE BELIEVED ABOUT FOOD & DIET IS A LIE!

Help me Jesus.

To be continued…
