October is Unprocessed Foods Month

Blogger Andrew Wilder writes,

“Unprocessed food is any food that could be made by a person with reasonable skill in a home kitchen with whole-food ingredients. I call it ‘The Kitchen Test.’ If you pick up something with a label (if it doesn’t have a label, it’s probably unprocessed), and find an ingredient you’d never use in your kitchen and couldn’t possibly make yourself from the whole form, it’s processed.”

For one month, take this challenge. Adventist Vegetarian Diabetics recommends:

  • Make a list of what you eat that you would consider “processed foods.”
  • Determine which ones you could live without forever and remove them from your house (trash or donate, whatever works for you). And don’t buy them again.
  • Determine which foods you would like to have an alternative for and find acceptable alternatives for your personal dietary approach to managing diabetes.
