October again!

It’s that time of year again!! The October Unprocessed Challenge officially begins today! I participated in it last year and it was the jump start I needed to get back into the habits I knew I should have kept. As a matter of fact, last year’s challenge changed a lot of things for me and I will credit it with my current quality of life… a quality of life I happen to love.

Last year, I found amazing recipes to replace foods that I had purchased in the store for years because I just hadn’t bothered to try. In preparation for the Unprocessed Challenge, I’ve put together a list of foods that you can make in your own kitchen from real ingredients. These recipes even pass the kitchen test that Andrew Wilder discussed way back in 2010, which you can find here.

I’m looking forward to what this October has to bring, both in experiences and recipes!
Did you take the Challenge? Is this a new experience, or are you a pro?
