Sally Davies' Happy Meal Art Project

The talk in our house tonight is surronding an article we read about Sally Davies' Happy Meal Art Project. We were utterly flabbergasted by her photographs, but not really surprised by them! We don't want to spoil all of the fun, so we'll just share the link. Make sure to read the comments at the bottom!


So, what are your thoughts on her project?

On a related note...I'm sure many of you have seen the pictures of the processed McDonald's Chicken Nuggets floating around Facebook, so we decided to post a link to that article here as well.


These are just two of the many reasons why we decided to shift to simple, clean eating!

Our First Blog

Hello! Welcome to our blog! Jason and I decided to start this page because so many people seem interested in the projects that we do. For a while now we have been using my Facebook account to share photos and comments about our adventures, and we are receiving a lot of support and feedback from our friends and family. We have wanted to take this journey to the next step for quite sometime, but we were not really sure of what that next step should be. After reading and borrowing from a variety of blogs over the last few months, we began to realize that our story has a niche here too! Our motto is "Simplify," and we try to apply that to everything we do. We constantly strive to simplify the food we eat, the way we live and our impact on the planet. Our dream is to eventually have a farm, which we have affectionately named "Almost Paradise," and to make a living off of our land. We hope that the little things we do now are moving us towards that dream, and that just maybe our ideas will help move you towards yours! Thanks for reading!
