On Facebook I am hosting an event called Detox Friday. Last week we jumped right in and only ate fresh foods for one day, eliminating any processed foods. For some, this was the first detox they had ever done, but they got through it.
This week, I thought since it is the Fourth of July everyone would be barbequing, having fun and not really into giving up foods. So, we are doing a pantry detox!
There are a few things that all of us should be avoiding, but just don't know we should. So go through your pantry and look at the ingredients list. If the following ingredients are there, you should consider finding an alternative product.
So, if you have a product for instance ketchup. Most conventional ketchup contains HFCS. Next time you go shopping, look for a ketchup that does not contain HFCS, maybe cane sugar.
Since it is a holiday weekend, I didn't want to overwhelm you, so two items this week to look for. Then next week when you go food shopping look for similar items without these two ingredients in them. Next week we will look at a few other items to detox our pantry!
If you haven't already joined us, please join the event so you don't miss a single thing! Below is the link to the event.
Please let me know how you make out detoxing your pantry!
