    Oh Sandra, I hope Elizabeth is doing better soon. I hope her fever is gone soon.

    Great job on your weight loss. We do dairy free, well my husband and the kids, because they are allergic to milk. I don’t know if we could go meat free. We do eat meat free meals on occasion. I am glad to here your family is doing well with the change in your diet.

      Thank you, Shelly. Unfortunately, Elisabeth is still sick. :-( She has had a rough day and the fever hasn’t let up yet.

      Thank you for the encouragement on the weight loss! Going meat free is definitely something I wouldn’t recommend doing ‘cold-turkey.’ :-) We’ve gradually transitioned to mainly meat free meals except for about 3x per week. We are going to move this down to around 1x per month on this new diet. I’ll be sure to update on our progress.

    I love how your diet is changing for the better and it changes you and your whole family for the better! I definitely need to add some more vegetables in our diet. Maybe juicing would be a good way to do it. Do you have a favorite juice recipe?

    I so admire you guys for doing all the hard work and making all the sacrifices involved in such drastic diet changes. Way to have the long-range view of your family’s health! That’s inspiring.

    Hi Sandra! I came here via Paula over at the averagehousewife.com! I can’t imagine going meat and dairy free, though it is something I have thought about. I have a difficult time eating a lot of fruits and veggies. I was such a picky eater as a kid that I just never developed a taste for it. I lived off PB & J’s, chips, and Little Debbie snack cakes as a kid!

    I’m a new follower of your blog and hope to glean from your experience!

    P.s. – hope the baby’s feeling better by now!
