Today, for Live Simply, The Podcast, I asked the Live Simply Community over on Instagram to answer the reader question from episode 9, “How do I get started with real food when my family loves real food?” In today’s episode, I’m going to share the responses.

The journey away from processed food to a real food lifestyle looks different for each family, some families went cold turkey with cutting all processed food, while others took it slowly. But everyone had the same goal: enjoying real food and getting away from a Standard Western Diet of overly-processed foods. For some families, allergies or dietary restrictions are at play, which has made the switch look different than other families who didn’t have the same allergy restrictions. I think this shows just how unique this real food journey is for each family.
Before I share the responses, which I’m going to try to do without messing up on everyone’s Instagram user profile–some profile names aren’t easy to pronounce–I want to remind you that you can learn more about what real food is and what it looks like by listening to episode 3. And you can hear my answer to this question by listening to episode 9.
I hope listening to the community’s response inspires you along your own real food journey.
My husband and I have committed to going paleo for the whole month of October. It’s a challenge for us but we’re looking forward to it! We already eat semi-healthy but we’re wanting to spend October being really conscious of what we’re eating in advance of the major holidays.
Awesome, Ashley. Thank you for sharing.
