A shout-out to CCV for creating Vegan Thursdays! It’s a great way to ‘play’ or ‘flirt’ (as Alicia Silverstone may say) with the Vegan diet.
But since I am already Vegan, and trying day by day (though struggling quite a bit) to eliminate processed foods from my diet, Vegan Thursdays, meet “Pure” Fridays. Starting tomorrow, I am challenging myself to a whole day of unprocessed eats.
I also want to give a huge shout-out to Raw on $10 a Day (or Less!). It’s an absolutely fabulous blog that posts full-day menus with nutritional info, and the best part is, they are all completely raw and unprocessed as well as cheap. Reading through her menus, I realized how much processed junk I was still consuming, and I know I can do so much better.
Who’s with me?
Note: Because I live in a dorm it’s really hard for me to eat mostly unprocessed foods, so I am allowing myself to eat “just” foods (ie. “just raspberries” etc), dried/ roasted nori wraps, and lightly processed Artisana products (though I will try to eat minimal amounts of nut butters, and absolutely no Sunbutter – a truly dangerous and yummy treat).
Word of the day: aplomb
