MINIMALIST ONE-INGREDIENT GROCERIES

05.17.2017

for family of 10 I was raised on healthy food but in my late teens and early twenties, I fell off the healthy wagon and began eating the standard American diet. I bought the typical food products on my weekly trips to the grocery store: bread, jelly, cereal, cookies, muffins, granola bars, cake mixes, can goods, salad dressings and many many other processed food.

So the best way to process any homeschool post, is to take away from it what will benefit you and your family and leave the rest. After many years of research and many years of having my children work through the many different curricula, I have come to the conclusionRead More
