What extra's do you do for your family?? My big one includes what we eat. I make everything from scratch (as much as I can).
I make all of our meals from scratch, breakfast, lunch and dinner. I also won't buy any junk like potato chips, baked goods or candy. I make those all myself. We are pretty healthy but when it comes to the "bad" things I like to make them as clean as possible.. I know what the ingredients are and know how they are made.
I make my own cheese (no pre-packaged or pre-shredded). At the very least if I cant make it I buy high quality cheese that I know is good and I shred it myself. Pre-shredded cheese is coated with a chemical and to me that is disgusting. I also make our creamer homemade (no chemical filled coffee-mate in this house), homemade chocolate syrup, caramel, ice cream, extracts, bread, pizza dough, whipped cream, pasta, bbq sauce, salad dressing.
I love cooking and baking, I do it often (especialls pies and pastries). We also make a lot of paleo items like pancakes which are actually quite healthy.
We also use real butter (not the plastic stuff), real maple syrup and local honey. I buy organic for the items you should buy organic (the rest I buy conventional). I take a lot of pride in my cooking/baking and I feel like its how I contribute to our family and their health.
Obviously I am a SAHM and not everyone has time for this stuff. It can be time consuming but at the same time I feel like its very rewarding and I enjoy it.
