I try to do what I feel is best for me. I have chosen to be a vegetarian, not consume sugar, and eat fresh homegrown, homemade foods. But, school and work put restrictions on my efforts. So in order to survive, I found a way, a lifestyle, that would facilitate my wishes.

The first stop is the pantry where we store the goodies. We buy in bulk and do our own canning and freezing. These help cut food costs.
slide10
The garden is an invaluable food source. It provides fresh food in its most nutritious and tasty form.
slide11
Combining our muscle power and knowledge make it easier and more fun. The garden helps us get our serving of Vitamin D too.

All of us love to eat and fortunately, most of us love to cook. So, we have lots of homemade stuff.
slide13
Some of us get into the creative aspects, inventing new concoctions or trying old concoctions with new things.
slide14
Others prefer to study up a bit and plan things out. There are a wide variety of foods to play with too.
slide15

Grains and beans include: wheat, rye, masa, buckwheat, millet, cornmeal, kidney, garbanzo, pinto, navy, and soy beans, lentil, pea and peanut butter. The creative combinations are endless.

slide16

Walnuts, almonds, sesame and sunflower seeds are rich nutrient sources we like to include in our diet. Three tablespoons of sesame compare with one cup of milk on a calcium to kcal ratio. You have to remember to chew them well or grind them.

For wonderful flavors, herbs and spices we have in abundance. Whole seeds and fresh leaves.

But our major cry is for vegetables. Salad is a must, fresh greens, spinach, sprouts, carrots and whatever else the garden has to offer.
slide20

Ground sesame or nutritional yeast loaded with B vitamins and protein are great salad toppers. Dressings of garlic, spices, ground seeds and vegetables with oitl and vinegar are common.

slide21
Fresh picked vegetables lightly steamed make a great lunch. John, Eric and Lisa prefer to stir fry the veggies with tamari and sprouts.
slide24

Robbie likes to mix up a little granola for breakfasts and snacking. Inside are oats, wheat flakes, sesame and sunflower seeds, nuts, coconut, spices and homemade applesauce to sweeten it up.

slide25

Sprouts, yogurt and bread are big items. Since sprouts are seeds starting to grow, their nutritional content has increased considerably. Protein is even 2-4 grams per cup. Our favorites are alfalfa, mung, lentil and wheat.

slide27

Yogurt and bread go really fast around here. The bread is homemade with whole wheat flour. Sometimes we add rye, oats, wheat berries, nuts or seeds.

slide28
Adding soy flour would balance the amino acid ratio and leave a fuller protein. What we usually do though is complement in other ways.
slide29

Sandwiches made with lentil spread, soy butter, pea soup or cheese make fine combinations – stuffed with sprouts and sweet carrots of course.

slide31
We feast on the tortilla and bean combo with hot salsa and greens. Bob creates with garbanzo and bulgar.
slide32
We all have our favorites. Robbie would live on carrots and peanut butter if she could. John and tofu, Lissy and crackers. But,
