Melanie is a homestead, homeschool mama to five children and wife to the man of her dreams. She finds victory over chronic illness through healthy eating. Gardening and raising livestock is the means to feeding her family healthy on a budget. Baking is a lifelong passion that was shelved because of food allergies. Now she is discovering how to have her cake and eat it too – without tummy troubles.
Canning our own food has given us healthy food that we can use to quickly prepare allergy safe foods and stay on a tight budget.
Using the Back to Eden gardening methods I am able to keep up with a large garden despite having fibromyalgia. Growing much of our own food helps us stay on a tight grocery budget.
