I am excited to be a guest writer for October Unprocessed on my friend Andrew Wilder's healthy eating blog Eating Rules. This year over 10,000 people have pledged to eat unprocessed food for the month of October. To me going unprocessed means cooking with wholesome, real ingredients and buying premade food without chemicals. I usually skip any products in the market with unpronounceable words on the food labels. To help people "go unprocessed," Andrew's blog is filled with tips and recipes.
Today on Eating Rules I tell my story of going unprocessed and adding healthy food into my family's diet. I hope others will find inspiration and encouragement as I share my frustrations and triumphs. I also share my recipe for Farro with Spinach, Lemon, Basil, and Pinenuts. I have been experimenting with ingredients and wading through some cooking fails in order to come up with this tasty, healthy dish. I love this winning combination of Italian ingredients. The flavors and textures really complement one another. This dish can be served as a side dish or as a vegetarian or vegan main dish. So, click here to read my story and recipe on Eating Rules.
