The first few days of October Unprocessed were a little bumpy. I thought I had everything planned, but I soon found out otherwise.
Today is the beginning of October Unprocessed, a month where I will eat only unprocessed food. It’s easier than it sounds, even living in the United States, where the grocery shelves are filled with an endless array of processed food products. I hope you’ll join me, if not for the whole month, then maybe for a week or two.
Snacks and dining out were actually the hardest part of getting started with the October Unprocessed and non-GMO month challenge
Nearly halfway into October and I think I’m getting the hang of this.
Reading the ingredients labels is the most time-consuming part of this exercise, but even that doesn’t take long. Especially since “natural and artificial flavors” is almost always at the end of the list. If I find that, I know it’s not included this month.
My first weekend avoiding both processed food and genetically modified ingredients turned out to be a little more difficult than I anticipated. Avoiding one or the other wouldn’t have been so hard, but both at once proved challenging.
This month is October Unprocessed – a month where I pledge to eat nothing but unprocessed food.
