    Really good advice, especially that part about “going on a diet.” Mindset is half the battle, I think.

    I need to be better about the dirty dozen when I shop. The link in your post has a printable guide to keep in your wallet, and I think I’ll do that.

    One thing that has helped me tremendously too is to make a meal plan and shopping list for each weeknight. It saves me from going “I don’t know what to make” and then taking the easy way out by making something processed.

      Meal plans and shopping lists are an excellent tool! I use them to keep us on budget and eating healthy, especially on those busy nights when I wouldn’t otherwise know what to fix. I also try to plan at least one or two meals that are “easy” meals for those nights I don’t feel like or have time for something larger.

    Love this!

    I am currently trying to go one week without eating processed foods (with a few exceptions…and I’m on day 2!).

    Your number one is the one I have to keep reminding myself over and over again. I have 30 years of bad eating habits behind me, and a tendency to want instant change – as well as getting thrown off by upsets.

    I’m doing it differently this time – taking one step at a time, choosing real foods as much as possible, and being motivated by the most important little person in the world (to me anyway! 🙂

    Thanks for the encouraging advice!

      You are so welcome, Kelly. It is so tough sometimes to feel like you are making a difference (taking it slowly) when we are constantly bombarded by messages about getting slim quick, etc. by the media.

      Good luck on your journey towards natural eating! I encourage you to get your little one started helping you out in the kitchen, too. It will give you both a chance to connect and create a nourishing, healthy relationship with food. Check out my blog (www.fingerpaintsuperheroes.blogspot.com) for a feature I do called “Kids in the Kitchen” for recipes and ideas.

    Excellent advice! I’ve really been trying to do all of these things.
