So, I think I'm doing this.
Taking the entire month of October to eat only non-processed foods.
All the details, ins and outs, and what-nots are on
But I'll sum it up with the definition of unprocessed:
Unprocessed food is any food that could be made by a person with reasonable skill in a home kitchen with whole-food ingredients.
In other words,
if you look at the ingredients list on a package of something,
and you can't pronounce half of it, much less even know where to buy
such things, you obviously couldn't possible duplicate that in
And that makes it processed, very.
But for example,
if you buy a good quality whole-grain pasta with only
a handful of recognizable ingredients,
then that's not considered processed.
Do you get it?
Eating unprocessed foods doesn't necessarily mean you make
everything single thing homemade,
it just means you are meticulously picky about what you put in your mouth.
No contorted, reconstituted junk!
This will be semi-easy for me because I am already very careful.
But I will tell you,
I have some very weak moments and often buy and prepare foods
that are terribly unhealthy, simply out of convenience.
(I actually used Velveeta twice this month.)
(Gross, I know.)
I'm going to give it my very best to plan meals in advance, and more carefully.
I will simplify our meals because I'm really not wanting to add more work to my load.
We'll be healthy and mighty by the end!
And we'll see what family members move out in protest.
Now, I want to know how many of YOU are willing to try this also?
(And keep in mind, you can set your own rules, of course. The gist of it
is to simply get on track to making healthier food choices!)
If you are on board, let me know!
