In honor of a new year, The Clean Project has a new look AND a new feature!
Some of you aren’t seeing the new site yet, just go to clean-project.com without the “www”. There may be some hiccups as I switch hosts, so please let me know if you come across a broken link. Drop me a comment or email me at cleanprojectblog (at) gmail (dot) com and I’ll get it fixed.
When I was first starting my real food journey, I was hungriest for information. There was (and still is) so much information out there, that it can be hard to digest. For every thought, you’ll find the opposite opinion… Soy will give you cancer! You can’t live without soy! It can be very confusing and certainly overwhelming.
I have kind of closed my eyes and just thought if I ate mostly organic, mostly real foods, I would be okay, but I’m realizing there’s so much more to living a healthy life. There’s GMOs, hidden allergens, toxins everywhere in our foods in and our households. Its enough to make you scream if you try to take it all in at once.
I’m still on a quest to find out as much as I can about what’s healthiest and even more so, what’s unhealthy, to put in, on and around my body. I’m trying to achieve this by reading, researching and a dash of common sense. When there are so many dollars involved, it can be hard to determine who has a pure motive and who is trying to protect their funding.
I’m not an expert and I certainly don’t have all the answers, but I’m trying to do my best to digest it all. Throughout the two or so years that I’ve been on this journey, I’ve learned who my trusted sources are and I’ve also learned that no one person is likely right on everything. The food industry is ever changing and we’re learning new things everyday. Some things that may have been previously accepted to be safe may now be found to be unsafe (and vice versa) after further research and long term studies.
All this to say, I’m starting a new feature on the blog: the Friday Focus. Please understand these thoughts are just my findings and what I personally plan to do with the information. I’m always open to (calm) discussion if your opinion differs. I plan to do these posts on some Fridays to share my findings on this never ending journey. They could cover ingredients, terms or anything else I come across. If you have a topic you’ve been wondering about, let me know!
Tune in next week for the first official Friday Focus where I’ll cover something common in your household with a scary chemical name that’s actually not so scary, but why (and how) to make your own anyway.
What would you like to see covered in a Friday Focus?
