Keeper of the Home– Excellent variety of articles on natural living with a frugal, budget-friendly focus. Topics such as cleaning products, toxin-free home, body products, organizing, and grocery shopping.
Passionate Homemaking– The blog that got me started on natural living! Similar topics to Keeper of the Home.  My favourite thing about Passionate Homemaking is its focus on simplicity.
The Humbled Homemaker– Concise, balanced articles on homemaking and grace-filled living.
The Nourishing Gourmet– Delicious recipes and helpful research on food sourcing and preparation.

Nourishing Traditions, by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig. This hefty cookbook is a treasure box of real food recipes, research, and resources.  This is one you’d want to buy rather than borrow, since it’s a reference book.  Tends to be a bit extremist, but serves as a great guide and springboard for your own personal approach to real food.
Real Food: What to Eat and Why, by Nina Planck.  Narrates the author’s personal journey and research and covers all the bases of real food history and health profiles.  Very balanced and accessible.  I’d recommend checking it out from the library and reading it straight through, although it is worth owning.
