A Clean Start


A clean start is what I need for 2011! I have loved all the cooking, baking and holiday food recently. Loved it a little too much, unfortunately, I feel incredibly unhealthy!

 In October I took and loved the October Unprocessed challenge by Andrew from EatingRules which was for the month of October to eat no food that had been processed- harder than it sounds!

Well Andrew has come up with another challenge called “January rules” Which is to follow 3 very sensible, healthy rules
  1.  Eat only 100% whole grains
  2.  Dont eat high fructose corn syrup
  3.  Dont eat hydrogenated oils, trans fats or anything deep fried.

 I have been invited to not only participate but do a guest post on this subject in January ( Me guest post! Crazy, I know! )

I am looking forward to not only the challenge but to healthier cooking, eating and feeling healthier- there really is nothing like that feeling!
While looking for a healthy food picture I came across this picture, taken in a food market in Istanbul earlier this year. (Looks healthy to me!)

Wishing everyone who see this a very Happy New Year.

    I love the idea of eating healthier & I’m pretty good at it, to a point! I am a vegetarian but I tend to eat packaged food alot. :-/ It’s easier with having to take care of my MIL. I don’t eat anything fried & I try to eat whole grains. Now, for the high fructose corn syrup, I can’t seem to stay away from it. If I had time to cook my own food, I would do better at that. I love the fact that you are doing this & helping others eat right! Keep up the good work!! 🙂

    Thanks Celeste! I understand the vicious circle of wanting to eat healthily but finding packaged food more convenient- I used to do the same thing, it does take some organisation to cook your own food but you do get used to it. If we do another Unprocessed month you should try it out- its a real eye opener!
