A few weeks ago on Facebook, I said, “I’m going to try this: http://www.eatingrules.com/october-unprocessed-2012/”
Then this weekend, I went through my cabinets to purge all the yucky, processed foods and make room for real food.
I wish I’d taken a picture, because that pile was massive and terrifying.
So now I am faced with the uncomfortable decision of 1) throwing away – i.e., wasting – a lot of food, which really bothers me; 2) pawning off all of this deeply unhealthy food to my unsuspecting friends; or 3) using October Unprocessed to wean myself away from processed foods, hopefully adopting an unprocessed lifestyle altogether eventually.
I think I’ll go with Option 3.
So far, today, I have had:
- Three cups of coffee – freshly ground – check!
- Pizza from the local pizzeria which prides itself on its whole ingredients, but I haven’t personally read the labels on everything that went into my pizza, so I’m going to count that as a half check.
- 20 oz. bottle of Cherry Coke. *looks at ingredient list* I don’t even know why I looked. There’s nothing unprocessed on that label. Not a single thing.
So I’m off to a solid “meh” start.
In other news, Kim and I finished Veronica Mars last night. Most unsatisfying ending to a show ever. But we also watched the Castle and Revenge premieres. Now I have to go watch all the other Revenge episodes that ever were, because that show was intense and awesome. Also, we had donuts, the leftovers of which are currently in my house…during October Unprocessed.
This is not good.
