I came up with this great new idea today...
Maybe I could simply try eating only whole foods for a week?
Would that be harder? Finding and eating enough variety of whole foods and especially no processed foods at all might be hard.. maybe start just less processed foods?
But my diet has gotten progressively worse. I've eaten a lot of tortilla chips and ice cream lately and fast food. Lots of worst of the worst type stuff.
But enough rambling and complaining about my diet.
I guess what I would like to know are what are some examples of whole foods besides the common ones? And what are some good recipes?
Because all I can think of is like salads and peppers, tomatoes, carrots, etc., basically just the veggies & fruits they sell at the grocery store and that gets boring... are there any other foods I'm missing here? Or even just recipes to use said boring foods so they are not boring. Or perhaps I shouldn't be buying from the grocery store either?
But let's just work on healthier for now and I can find a farm stand later lol
I did manage to eat a salad today though and buy lots of kale, spinach, blueberries, and strawberries.
But I want more I guess.
Like for example, can you make your own pasta sauce? Obviously pasta is processed as are a lot of good grains so I guess it might not be possible to go 100% not processed? But I at least want a start.
Thanks in advance and sorry for the rather rambly and unsure nature of this.
But the basic premise is PLEASE HELP ME EAT HEALTHIER AND ALSO FIND WAYS TO MAKE HEALTHY TASTY AND NOT BORING.
