There's something about the start of school that gives me "the new year mentality". It feels like a fresh start...a good time to go through and get rid of things, organize better, and whip life back into shape. Plus, being able to simplify in September can get you on the right track to unprocess your October.
October Unprocessed is a food challenge that involves getting back to the basics, cooking and eating like your grandparents did instead of reaching into a package each time you eat. Now in it's seventh year, the guidelines are fleshed out and there are a ton of resources to make your experience better. There's a pledge you can take to let people know you are committed and share with others.
Check it out. Talk about it with your family. See if this is a pledge you can take together!
