Cleaned House

So my husband is now on the same train as I am and we spent a better part of the day going through the cupboards and fridge to eliminate any and all foods with those bad for you chemicals in them.

The list of stuff we threw out was crazy but we should all feel better for it physically and also knowing that we are not putting into us 'things' that were never meant for human consumption.
I am sure we will still eat things here and there that are not the best but we took a giant step in the right direction today.

The cupboards and fridge look pretty bare right now until I get shopping and replenish them with healthy foods. I think it is going to take me a while to get use to buying the kinds of foods we plan on consuming. My shopping trips may be exciting for the next few weeks.

I began this adventure of eating 'raw' in January but have only been half hearted about it, now that my hubby is with me on this it will be easier.


  1. I've been cleaning too, thanks to you!!

    Explain eating raw, I see it often but don't really understand it too much, is it simply eating raw fruits and veggies?

  2. Good luck in your raw venture! Hope you like it and hope it works out.

  3. Sarah;
    For me eating raw is eating only fruit, vegetables(raw & cooked), nuts, seeds, whole grains with some meat and dairy here and there.

    We have eliminated processed foods with again a few exceptions.

    This wouldn't be classified in the Raw world as eating raw but for me I don't know what else to call it so thus the name. Basically trying to eat the foods that have been around since the beginning of time and not anything else.

    It makes me feel really healthy!

  4. It is definitely easier to have a partner on board. Best of luck to you both and great job on the cleaning. Have fun shopping!
