Happy last day of January! Since it’s the end of the month I thought I would just share with you my changes for the month. Some changes have been easy, some have been harder. It actually only took a few hours to clean out the pantry, although the emotional trauma is still with me. 🙂 So, drumroll please: in the healthy eating category I got rid of the bad oils, high fructose corn syrup, white refined sugar (see what I did with that here), and I’m working in kicking my Dr. Pepper habit. I have begun soaking my oatmeal and I installed a faucet mount water filter for drinking and cooking.
In other areas, I have begun recycling (I know, right?) and I am doing a ton of research on whole foods, traditional ways of food preparation, and healthier alternatives to household products. And I’ve been more consistent with my blogging! 🙂 My pantry purge also triggered a purging spree throughout my entire house. If I don’t love it and/or use it, it’s outa here. It’s been incredibly freeing to de-clutter. And I love having less to dust.
So there you have it. Some baby steps towards a better year and a better, healthier life. Over this next month I hope to find healthier versions of some of our favorite foods, especially some of those packaged mixes the I like. Switching to whole foods is a process and there’s grace for the journey.
Have you made some changes this month? What has been the most challenging for you?
