How much processed food does your family consume? If you’re like most Americans, probably more than you think!
Today I came across Eating Rules, a great blog about healthy food and lifestyle habits. Eating Rules is encouraging people to try and go the entire month of October without eating processed foods. As a mom and someone who tries to eat healthfully (but doesn’t always succeed), I love this challenge! G and I get a lot of fresh fruits and veggies, but we get a lot of junk too.
So, how do you know whether a food with multiple ingredients is unprocessed? Eating Rules defines an unprocessed food as “any food that could be made by a person with reasonable skill in a home kitchen with readily available, whole-food ingredients.” Of course, it goes without saying that anything in its whole-food form is also an unprocessed food.
Will you be taking the October Unprocessed food challenge?
