As I was working on tonight’s supper a text message came through that sparked some though. From a classmate in Green Bay, he sent me the nutrition label from a loaf of “keto friendly” bread. Now I’m not much of one to follow diets or how any of that works so I’ve definitely taken time to listen to him as he has and is doing that work. I will say that I could read and I knew what the ingredients were without having to go on a quick google search but the amount of “to retain freshness” ingredients was slightly alarming. This, in my opinion, is the current problem. It isn’t the food, it’s the amount of processing that goes into some thing that used to be as simple as flour, yeast, water and a little sugar and oil.
What is the one thing that I have said is always the constant in our crazy, hectic life? Change. Here we are once again, shifting gears and pushing forward. Some of you, that follow a long on my Facebook page or read the last post already know that we were in the process of moving and now we are pretty much done with that. A few of our things are still at the other house but will be moved shortly. We didn't move far, actually just a mile away from our little house. We bought where we used to milk cows from Dan's parents. Was some upgrades space wise going from a three bedroom to a four, soon to be five bedroom house and having actual barns for the animals. Downfall is the remodeling projects are starting over again.
