For Keeps

I am on a mission. I am about to become a health nut, I think. I am just getting increasingly bothered by food! I love food, but the junk that is being offered to me and my family on a daily basis is mind boggling. Sometimes, I think I am ready to have my own farm complete with the chickens and the cows...make mine organic the old fashioned way! I know that is so not possible...but seriously, when I think about the stuff my family is putting into our lives via the food we eat, I admit it sort of scares me. I would dare say, that our health is in the balance. So, I am a novice here. I grew up eating relatively healthy. We had fresh garden foods and family dinners....however, it could have been better. I am looking for ideas on where to start, good books to read, cookbooks and recipes to try...the nitty gritty of what is the good and bad of eating for your health. I want to start growing a few things, and learning healthy ways to preserve my veggies. I have never canned, or gardened really...but I figure, surely I can do it with help from the blog world and wonderful world wide web! So, any suggestions?? I figure these bodies and all that are inside are for keeps, so I want to be a good keeper!
