Time for change

Things are going to change around here….I’m heading in a new direction. Failsafe has kinda failed us. We’ve done our darndest and I’ve been feeling as though I’m banging my head against a wall….a very hard wall. It certainly hasn’t been a waste of time, I have learnt a lot…and I mean a LOT…..along the way and it has helped us to identify some major behavioural triggers for both the big guys and also make me incredibly aware of additives and their dangers. Yes, that’s a strong statement but it’s oh so true. Additives in our foods can be downright dangerous!! Toxic!! Stay well away!!!

So, we’ve changed the care plan for my very special boy, my second eldest, my most challenging and sensitive son. I’ve found a new paediatrician, one recommended to me by my gorgeous cousin who has lived the nightmare I am living, with her now 18 year old son, and has come out the other end alive….and so has he. I feel so much more at ease now. We have a doctor who cares. A doctor who is thorough and not dismissive. A doctor who genuinely has his patients’ best interests at heart instead of…and I hate to think this, let alone say it….his pocket.

While I understand that food can certainly contribute to behavioural issues associated with ADHD and autism spectrum disorders, I’ve resigned myself to the fact that I can’t control them completely with food and I’m fighting an uphill battle whilst wearing rollerskates with no brakes, skating through an oil slick. I’m picking my battles and jumping off this ride.

Now we’re concentrating on other therapies and introducing more variety into his diet….but he will remain gluten and dairy free with minimal glutamates and absolutely NO additives. I will be cooking more whole foods, relying on less processed ingredients and sugars, and I will continue to make most things from scratch, only now I’ll be able to source and use some pre packaged condiments just to make my chaotic life a little easier. There will be no more brain busting thinking sessions just to conjure up a flavoursome and interesting family meal or even just a simple snack. No more beige food!!!!

So you can look forward to photos with more colour, food with more flavour and variety, and information on quality additive free products that will make your kitchen adventures a little easier. I’ll even be looking at ways to create nutritious meals that are quick and easy but without the use of highly processed junk. Let’s get back to basics with whole foods!!! Did I mention that I was excited???
