    Eryn, very well written! I’ve been guilty myself of making “food judgements” on others. Thanks for this reminder to think before speaking (a good practice in any matter). 🙂

    Thanks for these wise words Eryn!! I was actually just thinking about this concept the other day – how easy it is to become legalistic about food – and anything really! That darn legalism just won’t leave us alone! It’s not just a churchy/religiousy disease. I really resonate with your insightful distinction between healthy eating being a responsibility and not a competition. So once again, THANK YOU for your fabulous blog! I’m a huge fan. Your writing helps keep my pursuit of healthy meal planning for our unique household fresh and encouraged.

    PS) Your new site looks great!

      Ruth, thank you so much for your comment and encouragement! 🙂 It means a lot to me to hear how the Lord is using my writing and the blog. It keeps me going. Thanks!

    Well written Eryn 🙂 This is such a huge issue and there are a lot of people who hurt others without realizing it, and unfortunately those who do it on purpose. Its crazy how fast people feel attacked over food and its sad that it has gotten this way.
    It is a personal family decision and one you can only decide on after a long journey that leads your family to a specific place in the “food world”

      Thanks Becky 🙂 Last year when I interviewed you for the Into a whole Food Kitchen series, you really set a great example for me. I admire your humility in the food world, and the simple joy you take in feeding your family well!
