In June 2009 I embarked on a journey for 30 days-my mission was to eat no processed foods. I was to live on fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, and organic green tea. I blogged about what I was eating and posted nutritional information for each day. During these 30 days I felt amazing, I lost some weight, and had oodles of energy. During this time I also began a journey to create a business which is now called
Last summer was amazing in terms of how I felt, but once September rolled around I fell out of my workout routine, started eating more processed foods, and I started drinking coffee like it was the only beverage out there! This was all before the holidays even rolled around!! LOL Well, needless to say I started feeling lousy again, gained back the weight I had lost (boo), and had zero energy.
When January 2010 rolled around I decided to embark on a green smoothie challenge for 30 days. I was drinking a green smoothie every day through the month of January. This was an amazing experience as well.
Now here we are almost February 2010 and a good friend of mine asked if I would eat ALL raw foods during the month of February with her. So another challenge is in store for me! As of Monday I will be blogging about this new challenge!! Here is the link if you would like to follow along and see what in the heck I am gonna be eating!
So, in order to get ready for these next few weeks I have been stocking up on lots of yummy, healthy food!! Let me show you what I have so far!
This is what is on my kitchen table……yes, my produce has overtaken our kitchen table! I was able to pick up 2 cases of mangos for $8 at Randazzo’s Fruit Market so most of these will be cut and frozen for smoothies. I also have 2 pineapples, 1 cantaloupe, grapefruits for juice, lots of oranges for juice, 4 bunches of bananas but these won’t last long in my house, a couple bags of organic apples that I scored at Trader Joe’s for $2.49 each, 2 pomegranates (probably the last of the season), lemons, limes, some grapes and cherries. WHEW! I also have 2 aloe plants…..I use these in my smoothies sometimes, well pieces of them anyways.
Now let’s take a look into my fridge!
So in my fridge I have:
Bottom shelf: 2 packages of strawberries, 1 large container of baby spinach, the other container is a spinach container but contains organic kale that I got from Kroger for $1.51!!!! I packed it all into last weeks spinach container to keep it fresher longer! Next to the spinach are coconut waters…I use these in my smoothies sometimes.
Top shelf: 1 bag of organic baby carrots, container of organic romaine leaves, 6 seedless cucumbers, 2 avocados (plus 1/2 way in the back), a large container of organic hempseeds, behind the hempseeds is a container of spring water, 2 containers of coconut milk (which is the milk my son drinks), a jar of chia seeds, some green powder to add into my smoothies, behind that is a container of almond milk (which my daughter drinks).
In one of my produce drawers I store nuts and seeds, and in the other one I have onions and garlic.
So, I am pretty well stocked for at least a week-maybe more-LOL!
We will see!!! I hope you follow me on UnProcessMe to see how things are going!
Wish me luck!
