2013 Goals

I came across a blog that caught my interest called The Prairie Homestead, and as I was flipping through, I came across a post with her goals for 2012. I think this is a fabulous idea! And even though its already 4 months into 2013, I thought it would be a good idea to write up a list of my goals for this year.

  1. Cut out wheat/gluten from my diet (this one I’m currently working on and have pretty much already eliminated any wheat/gluten sources in the last month)
  2. Cut out any sources of refined sugar (this is definitely a work in progress, but I am doing a lot better and have greatly reduced any sources)
  3. Make my first attempt at making home-made bone broth
  4. Buy a deep freezer
  5. Order a half of grass-fed beef (in the process of putting in my order)
  6. *Maybe* attempt to render my own beef tallow, if I can get some of the beef fat included in my order (that idea also came from The Prairie Homestead as well as a post I came across today on Facebook)
  7. Improve my cooking skills 🙂
  8. *Maybe* plant a garden (but we have some work to do on setting up on appropriate space with a water source, as I am REALLY bad at remembering to water things by hand)

I think that is basically it for now, although I am sure there are more things that will get added or crossed out as time goes by. 🙂
