for awhile now i've been researching clean living. it's actually how i found sparkpeople almost a year ago. my biggest hurdle for this lifestyle is money. i don't have the funds to go completely organic and natural with every aspect of my life. but i do what i can. i've been trying out more natural cleaners and household products. i built a deck out of composite wood. i'm becoming a very dedicated recycler. now i'm going to venture further into clean eating. it's going to be slow, mostly cause of the cost, but i'm going to do what i can. i'm going to plan this month and watch the ads for sales on certain things so i know when something is actually a good deal. in june i plan to eat clean. not everything will be organic, but i'll try to get as much organic food as possible. i'm going to cut out all processed foods (well, that bad ones) and try to eat nothing from a box or frozen meal type things. even if they are organic. produce will become more fresh & available with farmers markets and availibilty at the store. i think the challenge will be more challenging and rewarding if i have to make everything i eat and can't fall back on an easy excuse of frozen pizza.
i think this will be a very good learning experience. i'm looking forward to this challenge and i'm very excited to see what the results will be.
does anyone have any advice, ideas, tips, recipes, etc to share?
