I need a food reset.  Wanna join me?

 

I am a foodaholic.  I love EVERYTHING about it.  I love to eat it, cook it , grow it.  I love to learn about it, read and write about it.  I am especially obsessed with how it relates to our health.  If it's good for me- I'll give it a try.  But here's the thing...

 

I want it to taste good too!

 

What is the healthiest diet on the planet? I've studied quite a few of them and they all come back to one simple way of eating.  

Whole Foods.

You've probably heard this term dozens of times,  but what exactly is a Whole Food?

 

Whole Food

noun,  [hohl food]

1.  A food that is considered healthy because it is grown naturally, has not been processed, and contains no artificial ingredients

2.  A grocery store where a health foodie could spend their year's salary in under an hour.  Syn. whole paycheck

 

This got my wheels rolling to come up with a fun eating challenge.  Whole week of Whole Foods.  WWWF.  Disclaimer:  There will be no wrestling with fruits and veggies involved in this event. 

 

Sign up for the free program.    What you'll get the week of 10/16-10/23:

  • daily email including recipes 

  • tips to make the Whole Week of Whole Food easier and tastier

  • access to the WWWF facebook group where you can share recipes and commiserate with others.

  • Best of all, you'll feel better. 

 

Here's a list of other things you will not be putting into your body during WWWF.   These shouldn't be too tough to remember since most of them are automatically eliminated under the whole food category.

 

NOT IN MY BODY Guidelines (NIMB)

If you come across ingredients on this list, just say no.  Close thy mouth. 

1. processed foods, Anything out of a box.  

2. artificial colorings, flavorings and sweeteners
