Wow, Wasting Time... I think you may need a new username!
Thank you so much for your posts. They were exactly the sort of thing is was hoping to read.
My ds has intolerances and I've been off dairy, soy, eggs and nuts for nearly 4 months as we're breastfeeding. I go through so much rice milk, too! I'm also becoming really passionate about eating whole foods, but decidedly less passionate about how scarce they are (true whole foods, that is) and how much they cost! I'm all for supporting health food stores and organic grocers, but there has to be a happy medium; we can't finance the cost of shopping exclusively at a health food store. Yikes!
I'm especially excited at the idea of making own milk, milling own flour, making dips... Just generally stuff from scratch!
I love making big batches of vegetable stews with pulses and grains. Can you do bulk batches in the Thermomix?
Also, the husband is trying to steer me towards the thermo chef. My research tells me not to listen! Lol... It will probably be a purchase further down the track anyway.
Thanks again for all the in(spiration)fo!
