Oh goodness what a WONDERFUL POST! I am in the 'process' of a very similar situation as a new mom to a current 7 month old. I can SEE the difference in my kid versus my nieces and nephews. AMEN - WONDERFUL POST!!

This is great but the fact that the baby doesn't cry is more likely a temperament result than the result of nutrition.

Ruth Almon said...

Temperment has something to do with it, but so does nutrition. If the baby has colick, is constipated, has diaper rash or other health-related problem, clearly he or she will cry more often. But I also see that proper nutrition keeps people on an even keel - not bouncing off the walls emotionally. Not only for babies, but for adults too.

Great post. I'm transitioning to more and more real foods right now myself, in large part because of being pregnant. But it is certainly a battle, especially as my husband is vegetarian and so creating meals for us both when he's home for dinner is a challenge. Anyway, always nice to read something like this for a little boost in inspiration. :)

Preach it sistah! Ha! I totally believe this. Now if I could only get pregnant!!! Working on it! :)

I found the going WAY EASIER when switching from SAD foods to whole foods in an effort to get frugal. When I discovered Paleo, it took frugality to a whole new level--boy, was I shortening the shopping list!

I now have more money to spend on quality foods, more free cupboard space, more refrigerator space since I started gardening and throwing out useless condiments, more counter space since I ditched the toaster and other "bread-related" items, and I have even saved energy costs by honing my meat purchases (in spite of going Paleo) to fit in the fridge freezer instead of plugging in the BIG freezer!

It's just like money--an attitude adjustment is all that's needed. Putting a priority on your health helps too.

Here's how I did things before I went Paleo: http://wenchwisdom.blogspot.com/2010/10/how-i-create-my-own-kitchen-convenience.html

Here's what I did after Paleo: http://wenchwisdom.blogspot.com/2011/03/how-i-create-my-own-cave-kitchen.html

You'll notice they're very similar, but one has no starchy foods in it--less for me to buy.

It's so great to be aware of the need to eat right while pregant or trying to conceive. Lucky future kids!

Eating good food on a budget is a real challenge, Wenchypoo. Often you just have to get used to the idea that a quality item will simply cost more. It used to bother me that olive oil costs four times more than soybean oil, but now I just think of soyean oil as poison. I don't care how cheap it is, I'm not putting it in my body!
