“Where do I start?” is perhaps the most common question people ask about transitioning to real foods and traditional foods. They're facing a mental hurdle — not only understanding the changes that must be made, but figuring out what to do first (and second and third).
Most people benefit from a big picture understanding, no matter what the topic is. Homesteading, keeping chickens, milking a cow, sourdough baking, lacto-fermentation, cooking traditional foods. Just knowing where you're headed gives important direction and understanding.
But let's not forget the importance of actually prioritizing what steps to take, and getting over the mental hurtle of seeing yourself doing it.
I know we've all been in this position: wanting to learn a new skill, but lacking the confidence and know-how to actually do it for the first time. It feels too hard, too unknown.
But when we see a video of it being done, or a friend shows us how, or a really good author makes all the steps simple and clear — suddenly we know we can do it. And then we do.
Why is this so? In my case, it is usually because I finally got my head around the whole process — the mental hurdle thing. But most importantly, I saw myself doing it. Then I did it.
Transitioning to Real Foods
Learning to cook and serve traditional, real foods is no different. It is a skill that must be learned.
But first we need to understand what we're doing and where we're going. This is the hardest part. The actual cooking is the easiest.
