The October Unprocessed Vault: Day 26

Here are all the posts from this day in October Unprocessed history.

School Lunch

As both a mom and a public school teacher, “Mrs. Q” became so dismayed at the disgusting school lunches that she had to do something to raise awareness and help bring about change. So, she decided to eat school lunch every day, just like the kids do, and share the meals and her experiences at Fed Up With Lunch: The School Lunch Project.

How to Make Yogurt

I tend to get a little pushy when it comes to making your own yogurt. Frankly, I think everyone should do it! If ever there was a homemade yogurt pusher, it’d be me.

How to Make a Simple Little Cheese

You don’t have to be a gourmet cook to make your own cheese!

Velvety Mock Hollandaise Sauce

This decadent gluten-free, egg-free, and low-sodium mock hollandaise sauce pairs well with grilled asparagus, steamed vegetables, grilled/broiled chicken, poached salmon, and eggs benedict.

Schools Selling Out: Free Gatorade for Students

I had a hard time keeping my trap shut when I heard that Gatorade reps would be on our high school campus handing out free samples to our students during G-week.

Green Pasta Supreme

This pasta has all the cheesy richness of alfredo with none of the cheesy cholesterol. I had to send myself to my room after two helpings or I would have eaten the whole thing!

Toasted Coconut Truffle Cups

The candy I give you today is a favorite of mine. It is a toasted coconut truffle shaped into a little cup. It is cute, bite-sized, and loaded with flavor!

A Healthier Halloween (and “Mashed Brains” Guacamole)

Ah yes, Halloween. So many ooey, gooey, sticky, sugary treats, enough to make your teeth rot, which may serve you well if you’re thinking of dressing up as a zombie. But if zombie teeth, weight gain and diabetes aren’t the result you want from this ghoulish holiday, check out some of my favorite ways to get the same "frightening" look and taste without the Frankenstein ingredients!

Math and Food: A Thought Experiment

Let’s say we fill a pint glass with water, or about 16 ounces. Now, foolishly enough, add 5 grams of butter to that glass. Delicious.

Healthier Holidays: Sage Cornbread Stuffing with Mushroom Gravy

Just because we know we should eat healthier over the holidays, doesn’t mean we need to sacrifice taste, our waistlines or our food “morals.” It is totally possible to enjoy all the flavors of the holidays without having to compromise.

A Petrifying Pecan Pumpkin Shake for Halloween

This Petrifying Pecan Pumpkin Shake is a treat we all can get behind. It’s easy to make, includes a vegetable, and is thick and rich while still being good for you. I love the flavors of pumpkin and pecan together and it’s a perfect autumn combination for a wholesome Halloween treat.

Breads and Unprocessed Living

read is perhaps the most “processed” item we can consume, but also one of the easiest things to do unprocessed. With a little imagination, or the included variations, you can get your bread fix and still eat unprocessed.

Maple Spiced Pumpkin Pie with 100% Whole Wheat Crust

Decadent and rich doesn’t necessarily have to mean processed and empty calories. Try this pumpkin pie–I doubt you’ll switch back to the Libby’s and condensed milk version.

If you haven’t taken the October Unprocessed pledge yet, please do!  And then encourage your friends to join in — it’s a lot more fun that way!
