This month is national unprocessed month meaning that everyone should try to remove all processed foods from their diet. It is basically a call out for everyone to start looking at the labels of the food they eat.
To celebrate this month I spent my Sunday cooking with my cousin, sister and grandma so that we would have all homemade and natural foods. We made mariana sauce, two different types of pesto (one with pine nuts and one with walnuts), rye bread, french bread, swiss steak and carrot cake. Hopefully I can make it all last through October so that I have natural foods for dinner the entire month.
I have even found the most amazing on the go snack that is all natural and delicious! Have you heard of Justin’s Peanut Butter? I was introduced to them a few months ago and now keep them in my purse, car, brief case and desk for the times I just want a snack. Have you tried them? You can find them in most grocery stores in the peanut butter section.
Are you going to participate in #UnprocessedOctober ? If you can’t go full unprocessed, then at least start looking at what ingredients are in the food you’re buying. The key is to not eat things that have ingredients you can’t pronounce or don’t know what it is.
Here’s to eating healthy… until the wine comes out.
