I am so excited to tell you about my new Healthy Living on a Budget series! My goal with Faithful Provisions is to teach you how to save money and live generously. In the past 6 months, I have been feeling the Lord call me to saving money while trying to keep my family healthy and strong. The Bible tells us our bodies are a temple and we are to care for them properly so we can fully execute the Lord’s work in our lives. For my family, feeding them healthy, unprocessed, whole foods is one of the ways I can do that.
Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own. ~ I Corinthians 6:19
I am going to make a disclaimer here: I am not a health expert. In addition, I am not going to totally change our lifestyle. All that to say, the content here on Faithful Provisions will not change but I will put a more deliberate emphasis on healthy living. My intent for the Healthy Living on a Budget series is to show you how we are slowly incorporating healthy lifestyle changes into our families routine. I’ll share with you where I started, and where I plan to go. I’ll share what we find, how we prepare it, and why we feel this is a healthier option.
All the things you have come to expect from Faithful Provisions will still be here: great deals and mouth-watering recipes! This new series will be an additional offering, in the hopes that if you are pursuing a more healthy lifestyle for yourself and your family, you will find the information you need here!
We will not be going fully organic, but I am moving towards a higher percentage of organic and natural products into our diet, as our budget allows. (And I find coupons for!)
The Healthy Living on a Budget series will include some of the following topics:
- Removing white wheat, processed, artificial flavors and colors out of our diet
- Using sugar alternatives
- How to optimize coupons while eating healthy
- *NEW* Price List for Organic and Natural Foods
- Using new appliances – Grain Mill, Food Dehydrator, Breadmachine, Pressure Cookers
