    Sounds good, except for one thing ~ ham is not real {fit for human consumption} food!

    Michelle – Could you elaborate?


    Stephanie @ Keeper of the Home Reply:

    I assume that she means because ham is not a kosher, or clean, food. Pork is a source of toxins, dangerous bacteria, etc. It can be “clean raised”, and many people will not touch conventional ham, but they do eat it if they can get it clean.

    Personally, we steer clear of pork in our family, because of the Biblical laws against eating it (though we do occasionally eat it when offered to us at someone’s home). We realize that we are no longer under the law, but we trust that God has a reason that he tells his people not to eat pigs. There have been many studies that do show dangers of eating pork.

    Anyways… love this series, Shannon! It’s nice to see the variations in how we all eat just a little bit differently, but the principles are the same. :)

    Stephanie – I kind of was thinking the same thing. Pork is a tricky thing for us. If I eat conventional pork I feel nauseous almost immediately.

    We have been buying small amounts of pastured pork in the form of bacon, lard, and the very rare roast or steak. It doesn’t make me feel ill like the conventional stuff does.

    We have talked about your points about unclean meats. I definitely think you have some valid points to ponder. Thanks for commenting!
