“Change is inevitable–except from a vending machine.”— Robert C. Gallagher
I hope you are not too cranky from your IF, or not eating any grains or pasta.
If so you may not like today’s challenge.
Plain and simple.
I need you to:
Give up all processed foods.
Many of these are ready to heat- ready to eat food products.
My mini-challenge to you is to avoid these foods.
I have quite a few definitions of processed foods.
1- anything that comes in a box or wrapper that remains in your pantry at room temperature and does not go bad for many months.
2- any food product with multiple ingredients, some or most of which sound like something you would use in chemistry lab,
3- anything with margarine, partially or fully hydrogenated anything, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial colors/flavors.
4- any artificial sweetener made in a lab. That means avoid sweet-n-low, nutrasweet, and Sucralose (Splenda)
5- no industrial processed oils or vegetable oils. That means no soybean, cottonseed, sunflower, safflower seed oils. The best oils/fats for cooking remain olive oil, butter, coconut oil and ghee.
5- don’t eat anything you could not eat if stranded on a deserted island.
I hope you accept this days mini-challenge throughout the entire 2015 IMW Spring Challenge.
