Yesterday I introduced to you our Two Weeks. Unprocessed. series, and today I want to share some of the items on my shopping list.
  • Pure maple syrup, made right here in Iowa
  • Nuts (almonds, pecans, walnuts)
  • Fruit (oranges, pineapple, berries)
  • Honey
  • Popcorn
  • Onions
  • Potatoes
  • Greens (kale, spinach, salad greens)
  • Beans (dry and canned, if there are no additional preservatives)
  • Frozen vegetables (peas, green beans, broccoli, spinach - no sauces, just plain)
  • Mushrooms
  • Dried fruit (cranberries, raisins)
  • Organic dairy products (milk, cream, plain yogurt, butter, cheese, etc.)
**I am purchasing dairy products, which are technically processed. I will also eat, on occasion, organic pasta that is minimally processed. Why? Because I don't have access to raw dairy, I don't have time to make my own pasta, and this is my challenge so I'll do what I want :) **
Anyway, on to the party:

Mostly Homemade Mondays is a series for people that are on a journey to better living, via healthier eating and a more natural lifestyle. We realize that there are different paths that we all take to get to that place, and this bloghop celebrates that. Whether you’re a seasoned raw foodist who has banned all things unnatural, or a rookie who is starting out by cutting out junk food, we’d love to hear from you! Link up with your favorite recipes, projects, crafts, or rants and raves.

    1. I am in the thick of Day 2, and already almost broke down and got a piece of Casey's pizza when I stopped for gas! Luckily I had an orange in my car and ate that instead.
