As I shared earlier this week, one of my homemaking struggles has been in consistently crafting a healthy kitchen. While there are some things to help make our healthy journey easier, like meal planning, sometimes it can still be hard and it’s so easy to compare ourselves to other homemakers and feel like a failure!

I think that crafting a healthy kitchen begins with a lot of little baby steps, that slowly over time, will transform your kitchen and your lifestyle. But dear sweet Homemakers, we can’t do it all! Sometimes, asking hubby to pick up a pizza on his way home from work is how we get through the day!

I try to make the majority of our food from scratch and try to avoid processed junk food full of additives, chemicals, and toxins. Fresh, organic fruits and vegetables are near the top of my “to-buy” list each week. But can I share something with you? Sometimes I’m just too tired to cook from scratch. Sometimes I just don’t know what to do with this asparagus for dinner again. 

Sometimes I get overwhelmed with trying to run a household, be a good mom, be a loving wife, and craft a healthy kitchen! And you know what? That’s okay! I don’t have to be super mom all the time! My good friend Jaimie from JaimieRamsey.com has shared this same struggle and how she has come to realize that food is not a moral issue.

  1. Hi, James! Satan tempts us to establish our own righteousness based on various criteria all of our lives. In our time now, eating choices are one of those things that some, women especially, place on the same level as spiritual things. Can you imagine what a spiritual victory and moving of the Spirit there would be if we all put as much effort into removing sin from our lives as we do in removing additives from our food? If we spent half the time we do on studying to eat healthy and feed our families that which will make their bodies strong on studying to become strong and healthy spiritually, and feeding on God’s Word? What will last for eternity? Shouldn’t that be of a much higher importance, evidenced in our words, and what we think about and how we spend our money and time? We have become much like the Pharisees, judging each other very harshly on matters that have nothing to do with obedience to God’s commands. I’m convicted that there is plenty of sin to confess and eradicate from my life, just obeying direct commands from His Word, without adding my own set of rules. I’m thankful for His grace and mercy and that He has already accomplished all on the cross and covered me with His righteousness. Thanks for this post. Very insightful.
