both DP and i have noticed that when we cheat we feel quite ill, headaches, bowel issues etc. If DP comes home with a big headache i know he's bought something from the smoko van at work!! poor guy can't hide anything from me anymore!
Dr's seem highly un-educated on the effects of additives in food . Can you imagine all the people they could help if they just thought outside the square a little!
You know i haven't considered it but i haven't had any asthma issues since we've been on this diet...and i thought it was just cause i fell preggers with DS
my depression has vanished too!

I have 210 acres of bush and some pasture for sale.... We are very self sufficient, dont even have power or town water/sewage. LOL
I like Orgran and Deliciously Free
oh i wish mischief!
DP is in the airforce so we don't have alot of choice where we go...and there are no bases in tazzie. Other wise id consider it!
Also theres the cold issue...this is our first real winter (we're from north queensland and have just moved to SA this year) and im so not coping well with the cold! my idea of winter is 25 degrees! yes im a wuss
So do you guys mostly eat preservative free because of the health implications, or because you are allergic?
Honestly, i really didn't know or care what i ate when i was younger. I had the worst eating habits and was just generally unhealthy. I also had shocking depression.
When i fell pregnant with DS at 18 i started to eat a lot better (veggies and all ) and then when it came time to feed my son i looked into it more and just couldn't stomach the idea of feeding him rubbish. I looked into additives and preservatives and read the book "Nourishing Traditions" by Sally Fallon. It completely changed my life. Once you have the knowledge you can't go back
Im now that annoying person that mentions additive free living all the time! lol My mum is the director of a childcare centre and she says im now that little voice in her head that won't shut up!! she's changing the centres menu so that there are absolutely no additives
DS is quite a hyper child to begin with so i think he'd be CRAZY with additives. If he does eat foods he shouldn't (thanks mostly to MIL ) we do see a difference.
Love my whole foods and love doing whats best for my family.
FYI Dreambeliever its a little under $2000.
