Get The Official Guide to October Unprocessed!

The Official Guide to October Unprocessed 2014

It’s almost here! The October Unprocessed challenge starts tomorrow, and I’m pretty darn excited!  More than 16,300 people (!) have now taken the pledge – if you’re still on the fence, I hope you’ll consider joining in!

I’ll be sharing at least one guest post every day in October – so this is my last “housekeeping” type post for a little while. That doesn’t mean the conversation ends, though – I encourage you to comment after the posts, ask questions, and help your fellow challengers out. We’re all in this together, so let’s keep supporting each other!

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been getting lots of questions about specific foods, ways to prepare, how to make the most of the challenge, and more. To help answer many of those questions, I’ve 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 [275kb PDF], grab a mug of your favorite unprocessed beverage, and dig in!

      Hi Elena! The winner was chosen this morning – I updated the giveaway post with a short announcement at the top. Thanks for joining in the fun — and please know that the only thing I don’t like about these giveaways is that I can’t give everyone a prize!

    Sad that you feel the need to define unprocessed for most people. Thank you for the offer but everything I eat is from scratch. I eat very little wheat. All vegetables are delivered from an organic farm. All meat is lean, low fat. I would eat organically fed meat but I am on social security below poverty level. I have no vehicle so fast food is out. All trips are on buses as I am disabled. Thank you for the ‘rules’ but I will pass on printing this out as paper and ink are not something as they are expensive.

    Hi, this is my first year participating and I have a few questions. Can you have cheese / soy sauce / vinegars?
