Have you heard about October Unprocessed? I signed up because I thought it would be a great way to clean up my act after a summer of whatever!

I pop this green pill (15 to be exact; half in the a.m. and half in the p.m.) every day to keep my immune system in top form. No colds for me.
I started today with Blue Corn Pinon Pancakes. They are delicious and of course totally unprocessed. You can find out what Andrew means by “unprocessed” when you check out the site. It’s pretty simple, but might be difficult if you rely on prepared foods a lot. However, totally worth giving it a try.
