Today, we close our Unprocessed Kitchen series. Over the last two months, we’ve discussed cookware, bakeware, soups, salads, meats, beverages, baby formula, fermented foods, breads, sugars, the GAPS diet, reading the labels, and how to change to unprocessed foods. I think it’s important to remember that eating an unprocessed, organic diet doesn’t have to mean giving up the foods many of us grew up eating. While it’s very important to eat sweets and treats in moderation, I’m a firm believer that you can recreate your favorite processed foods using unprocessed ingredients. Here are a few of my favorites I’ve published over the years on this site:
Recently, I’ve missed Girl Scout Cookies. The little girl in her green vest, the excitement in her eyes when you place an order, and of course, your favorite little sweets arriving a few weeks later on your doorstep. A few years ago, we stopped ordering because of the unhealthy oils, GMOs, preservatives, etc. in the cookies. My favorite has always been the little shortbread cookie topped with chewy caramel, coconut and smooth chocolate. Now we can enjoy an iconic favorite with more wholesome ingredients.
