Not long ago, I didn’t have a clue about the critical need to feed my family real food or how others made it look so easy. I didn't know how to find thetime, what to buy, how to afford it, how to cook it, or even how to get them to like it. With all the different “experts” making so many different claims, the whole thing seemed like it was just too much to figure out. For a long time I struggled, researched, de-conflicted the claims of the so-called “experts,” and wondered “How in the world do people make this look so easy?”
Today, I know how much real food matters. Now I know that it's worth the time to learn and make the necessary changes that result in a healthier, happier life.
Do you want kids who behave and learn well? Are you ready to finally feel good again and go off your medications? Do you want to avoid chronic diseases like cancer, obesity, and diabetes that have afflicted so many of our loved ones?
At the beginning of my real food journey, I wished someone had a simple, step-by-step class I could attend to help me get there more efficiently and with confidence. At the end of my real food journey, I developed the Real Food for Rookies online class so that other beginners would have it available as a vital resource.
You can do this! And you don't have to do it alone. Real Food for Rookies will get you and your family on the right track so you can be healthy again, or stay that way!
KELLY MOEGGENBORG lives near Grand Rapids, Michigan with her husband of 27 years and their 4 children.
Following a lifetime love affair with convenience foods, in 2004 she went through a “food transformation” after discovering the Weston A. Price Foundation. This motivated her to begin passionately researching how to eat and live better.
In late 2007 the ‘politically incorrect’ KELLY THE KITCHEN KOPwebsite was born and went live on January 1st, 2008.
Since then, Kelly’s mission has been to shine the light on the truth, and help others retain or regain their health with the knowledge she has gained from her own family’s transition to Real Food.
In addition to blogging, she teaches an online class called, ‘Real Food for Rookies’ and is a former Weston Price Foundation co-chapter leader. As if life wasn’t crazy enough, she also nowhomeschoolsthree of their children, with their oldest now graduated from college and on his own.
The source of greatest nourishment in her life is not food, but faith. A faithful Catholic Christian, Kelly is in love with the Lord and tries her best to follow Him day by day.
I have tried so many times to do a menu plan on my blog, but I always end up fixing something quick and easy, I like that this mom homeschools and knows what it is like to have a house full all day long, while trying to prepare dinner. This book definitely packs a punch at 173 pages. The author starts by describing what food is real and what is not. She then discusses organic foods. I never really thought about local versus organic. I always thought that they were similar. However that is not the case. I also found the quick reference really helpful for when I had questions. There are helpful resources, web links, measurements and conversions. I can not wait to try the recipes! The quotes were also fun to read. The junk food list in pictures was scary and I think that it should be posted everywhere! I am giving this book a 5/5. I was given a copy to review from The Book Club Network Inc, however all opinions are my own.
