First, A Little Housekeeping
1. It’s almost here! The October Unprocessed challenge starts in just a few days, and I’m pretty darn excited — more than 3,000 people have now taken the pledge! If you’ve been sitting on the sidelines, but haven’t actually signed the pledge form yet, please do so today. It really does make a difference.
2. We still have two big giveaways running–so if you haven’t entered yet, now’s the time! MightyNest has offered up a prize pack of more than $300-worth of awesome kitchen products, and Bob’s Red Mill has a prize pack of an electric pressure cooker, a variety of beans and grains, and a $100 gift-card to help stock your pantry. Click through and use the “entry widget” on each page to enter.
3. The October Unprocessed challenge is a lot more fun — and you’re more likely to be “successful” (however you define that) — when your friends and family join in. Go here to share the Challenge and encourage others to join us.
4. I’ll be publishing at least one guest post every day in October – so this is probably my last “housekeeping” post for a little while (though I do have one more trick up my sleeve for the end of September…). I encourage you to leave comments after the posts, ask questions, and help your fellow challengers out. We’re all in this together, so let’s keep supporting each other!
And now… Get the Guide!
I get lots of questions about specific foods, ways to prepare them, how to make the most of the challenge, and more. To help answer many of those questions, I worked with my friends and health coaches Stacy Spensley and Suzanne Elizondo, MS, RD, to create The Official Guide to October Unprocessed.
It’s a free PDF download that answers many of the most common questions about the challenge. But more than that, it’s got lots of great information on how to help you get the most from the challenge, ways to avoid common “speed bumps,” advice for specific dietary restrictions, and tons of other unprocessed goodness.
So download the free guide [299kb PDF], grab a mug of your favorite unprocessed beverage, and dig in!
