It’s 2017, and most of us lead such a frenzied life that we only have time for the fast-paced. We should be more efficient than ever but are so busy packing more into our already-slammed schedules that we barely have time to pick up a pre-packaged, store-bought product that barely resembles food. There are healthier alternatives available, but they’re usually double or triple the cost of the conventional product!

We need to return to the simple, the whole, the pure. It will bring a deep satisfaction of a learned skill and self-sufficiency as well as a way to save money.
