Here I Go....Week #1. Adios Processed Foods

In addition to conquering 52 goals this year, I also have one overall goal to become a more healthy human. I plan to accomplish this by returning to consistent exercise and watching much more closely what I put into my body.  The latter leads me to tackling my first weekly goal of the year:  Eliminating all processed foods from the house.

Luckily, my kitchen is not stocked full of processed foods...but there are some sneaking around that need to get the boot.  While I hate throwing food away, I just don't want these types of foods in our house anymore.  I want my family to be nourished by whole foods.  

I think the hardest part of this task will be having the other members of my household (husband, daughter (4), and son (2) be on board and okay with this change in our diet.  Sorry kidlets, no more frozen chicken nuggets for lunch!  For myself, I am very excited about doing this and looking forward to our venture into the whole foods only world!

Stay tuned at the end of the week with a status report for week #1!


  1. Awesome first goal!! I think more and more people are joining this "real food revolution" which is awesome because there are more resources to make it a doable switch with little ones. I really like weelicious for little kid recipes with real food. She even has some alternatives to the processed chicken nugget. ;)

  2. Thanks! And thanks for the website recommendation, I will check it out. 100daysofrealfood has a recipe for nuggets as well but she fries them and I am not so sure I am keen on that....

  3. I second Cindy's recommendation for Weelicious. She has a lot of great kid friendly food ideas. Looking forward to reading your blog!

  4. Thanks! I just checked out Weelicious and her nugget recipe looks great-thanks again for recommending ladies!
