My Lenten venture this year is complicated. I have decided I will try to cut out processed foods during Lent and continue thereafter as a lifelong way of eating. Now, this being said, I know it won’t be possible 100% of the time, but I’m making a conscious effort to know exactly what I’m putting in my body. I’m using the blog 100 days of real food as my guide and I love how easy they make it seem.
Here are some helpful tips I repeat to myself daily (and more if you’re interested):
eat as many fruits and vegetables as I can
don’t buy anything with more than 5 ingredients listed on the can/jar
you can have as much junk food as you want, as long as you make it yourself
always choose brown rice
popcorn is a whole grain
no sugar, no white flour
I wanted to see which of my recipes qualify as “real food” I was pleasantly surprised to see how many met the classifications.
