October: Unprocessed - A Gluten Free Food Challenge!

"Unprocessed food is any food that could be made by a person with reasonable skill in a home kitchen with readily available, whole-food ingredients." -- October Unprocessed website.

How often do you eat whole, real foods? Foods that don't come in a box, bag, can, or plastic wrapper?

If you read this blog, my guess is that you eat unprocessed whole foods on a somewhat regular basis. I like to cook after all.

I'm joining in with my blog friend Heidi, author of Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom  and FB friend Diane Bramos to challenge people to have at least one unprocessed meal a day.

I realize eating NO processed foods for an entire month could be slightly unrealistic. I'm not always great about making sure we have a homemade gluten free meal for dinner. I work full time, as does my husband. We have busy schedules... so this challenge is for me as well.

I'll be blogging about this process and the meals we make for the next 30 days.

I challenge you to join us.

One homemade meal a day with real ingredients for 30 days. Are you in? 

If you would like to join in with a guest post or a recipe to me try, please leave me a comment and let me know or send me an email
