But, let's just be honest. It's easy. And we don't like the way all that healthy stuff tastes. It takes too long to cook that way. It's too expensive to buy "healthy" food. I don't have the time to educate myself. What we don't know doesn't hurt us right? I'm learning that yeah, I don't know the whole of it. I don't know what every ingredient on the labels of my boxes and bags mean, but I do know that it's not good. So it's not that I'm not educated, it's that I'm ignoring it for the sake of convenience. And my final and somewhat futile argument is that my kids won't eat that stuff. I don't really know if this is true actually. But I do know that it's probably at least worth a try.
So, here's what I'm considering... (and my husband is just now finding out about this by reading this blog, sorry honey!) I think that I will gradually start cutting back on the number of processed foods we eat and by February or March will be able to go 100% clean for a month and see how it goes. I'm not positive exactly what this will look like, but I am starting to believe more and more that God never intended us to fill our bodies with junk. Poison. Quite literally in some cases. As I've mentioned before, this is the 1 body God has given me and I'm the steward of it. Constantly pumping it full of junk isn't the best stewardship of this body, that's for sure!
If you're interested in going "clean" too, let's talk! Making changes like this is better in a group. Support is key! Send me a message or leave a comment and we can work on a plan together!
