Day 1:

Today starts our adventures with raising rabbits, chickens, ducks, geese, turkey’s and guinea fowl. I used to raise rabbits for show but this sadly is a foray into organic home grown food. There are 7 of us and I am sick of paying oh my gosh prices for nutritionally crappy foods. We range in age from 57 to 10 years old and we all have our chores to do to make this work.

I can’t say we will be full paleo but we will at the very least be organic whole food. Many may wonder why we would do this but we run the gauntlet of health issues and behavioral issues. My mother (57) has high blood pressure, heart problems, degenerative bone disease, fibromyalgia and migraines. Me myself (35) I have fibromyalgia, degenerative bone diseas, migraines and a genetic issue involving my brain/neck (chiari malformation stage 1). My husband (31) migraines. My oldest daughter (16) has migraines and type 1 diabetes, ( she was diagnosed 6 years ago and is still uncontrolled). My other daughter (13) has no medical issues but some behavioral problems. My oldest boy (12) is the only one with no real issues. My youngest boy (11) has migraines, seizures, and behavioral issues . I am not saying all of this is because of junk in food but I am hoping that stopping refined sugars, gluten and all the fake food will help some.

I hope you will join us on our adventures this year to see what happens, and how our animals/gardens do!
