21 Steps to a Nourishing Diet (A New Series )

221 steps to a nourishing diet

It’s a beautiful (and cold) new year, and I find my mind brewing new ideas and goals about getting ourselves back on track with eating the best, healthiest diet we can. I know a lot of you are doing the same thing as well, with many questioning how they can eat a healthy diet while balancing the rest of life. Eating a healthy, nourishing diet is one of the most common New Year’s resolutions people make, and also one of the most failed resolutions.

But it doesn’t have to be, and I would love for my blog to help make a healthy diet a practical, doable goal for more of my readers. So, in light of that goal, I’ve decided to take the next two months to sharing tips and recipes for getting on track with a nourishing diet as part of this series. I’m excited this year to have my contributing writers also involved in the series, allowing you to get more than one perspective on this important topic!

I am really excited about this series as it allows us to focus on not just the basics, but also the practical recipes and thoughts that make our eating habits realistic and delicious. It’s going to be a good two months. This series, as we will go more into soon, is based on a traditional diet using traditional ingredients. Like my blog as a whole, it is inspired by Sally Fallon’s book, Nourishing Traditions (affiliate links) and Dr. Price’s book, Nutrition and Physical Degeneration. To get more information quickly, get them from the library or buy them! They are life-changing books, for sure.

Since I am still mapping out next month’s posts for this series, I’d love to hear any suggestions or questions you’d like answered! Let me know in the comments below.

I love beautiful and simple food that is nourishing to the body and the soul. I wrote Fresh: Nourishing Salads for All Seasons and Ladled: Nourishing Soups for All Seasons as another outlet of sharing this love of mine. I also love sharing practical tips on how to make a real food diet work on a real life budget. Find me online elsewhere by clicking on the icons below!

    Hi Kimi,

    I just came by on your site and see you changed the theme and your logo! I Like the illustration of the pot especially, and Foodie is a nice and clean theme, I have been looking at it as well and might use it when my designer is ready with my logo design:-) How did you make the tabbed About/Latests Posts thing? I have seen a plugin for that in the sidebar, but this is different!
    About your question: I have a 15 baby steps series on my blog on a nourishing diet that I am about to translate into English, maybe you can use it as inspiration? But for now you’ll need Google-translate, I am afraid… Here is the link:

    Another question about your book Ladled, you once told me there might be an ebook version of it, will there be one soon? I’d love to read it, but shipping to the Netherlands is too pricy for me:-(

      Thanks so much for the comment! I think that the latests posts thing is a plugin – my husband put it on for me. Thanks so much for sharing your series with me. 🙂

      The ebook of Ladled is available on Amazon now!

    We’ve been on a Nourishing Traditions-style diet for almost a year and the most difficult part of the transition for me has been food budgeting. We always ate an organic whole foods diet, so it was not a total shock, but the cost of grass-fed meat and dairy has pushed our food budget beyond what I am comfortable with. I’ve incorporated a lot of the savings tips posted here and on other websites, but am still spending upwards of $900 per month for a family of three (and one of us is a baby!). So what I would be really interested in seeing is a sample food budget with approximate percentages/dollar values that go towards each major food group (e.g. meats, grains, produce). This would help me see where I can cut back or look for better deals. I apologize if you have already covered this in a previous post.

    I look forward to this new series!

        I would love to see all of the meals/recipes budgeted with each post, too. I have $400 to feed a family of 4 each month, so budgeting your recipes would help me decide which/when I could incorporate them.

        Also, in my family we have anaphylactic allergies to nuts and eggs and so I already have to adapt most of what I make from standard recipes. If there was a search function on your site to look for recipes that have options for nut-free, etc. that would be a huge benefit which would draw me to your URL more often. (See OhSheGlows for a great example do a website that has this option.)

    I have been following your site for some time now, and I really enjoy reading it. Thank you for all the work you put into it.
    A suggestion for part of this series could be how to prepare nourishing food while working full-time.
    Also, good ways to store fresh foods so they don’t go limp (ie if carrots are left in the open air in the fridge, they start wilting).
    Thank you once again for your input into my food life!
