UnProcess Me Again!

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

Color Wheel Meals

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!
