OUR FOOD & LIFE PHILOSOPHY
We believe in non-extremist balanced whole food eating & simple beautiful living.
In a world that is obsessed with labeling things “good” and “bad” we believe in raising a family that loves and prefers healthy foods over junk.
We want them to know how good it feels to dig in the dirt, play in the woods & sit around a table full of friends for hours eating food they labored over.
RECIPES YOU WILL FIND HERE
We don’t do fussy, we don’t do complicated—our goal is to share delicious meal ideas that anyone can make, from novice cooks to experienced foodies.
Our meals include all manners of unprocessed ingredients….
- dairy (primarily fermented in some manner)
- fermented foods
- sprouted and/or soaked grain products– mostly spelt or alternative grain products vs white flour or whole wheat
- all natural sweeteners like honey, maple syrup or fruits (dates/pineapple/applesauce etc)
- wine & beer
We do our best to eat the best quality of produce and meat that we can find and afford. We keep a garden and small urban homestead to help provide excellent food for our family and encourage others to do the same if they can.
You will occasionally find recipes here that contain:
- white sugar
- white flour
because this is our lifestyle and we strongly believe that the occasional splurge isn’t gonna kill you.
Our recipes are good for you but most importantly they taste good and make the people around you feel loved and nourished. Almost all of our recipes are made from staple ingredients that a well stocked pantry should contain.
Every recipe that is posted here is thoroughly tested and refined until it passes everyone in the families taste tests (kids included!).

THE STORY BEHIND OUR BLOG NAME.
When we met I (Dani) was an extremely picky eater. At a family dinner, after we had been dating for 2 weeks, Kevin stopped me after I had passed over the 3rd dish of the evening and insisted that I simply must have an adventure bite of the coleslaw. He’s a very straight forward guy and so told me quite matter a fact:
“You see we are dating… right? Well if we keep dating you I plan on marrying you, and if I marry you I plan on having kids with you, and I won’t have my kids be picky eaters. So you either need to start tasting things or we need to break up. “
As you’ve probably guessed I did take that adventure bite and many many subsequent ones.
The Adventure Bite means to push your fears aside and try something new. It doesn’t mean you have to like it. But you have to try it. Because really….how will you ever know what you might be missing until you do?
