As part of my own personal whole food journey, I find that one of the hardest thing to replace are convenience items like pre-made sauces (any hot sauce addicts out there?). It’s gotten waaayyyy better, but in the beginning it was so challenging in fact, (at least that’s how I felt) that it almost made the whole food thing a bust. If something is too hard or too time consuming or too much of a pain in the butt, we often quit.
Ok, maybe it’s only me, but I actually don’t super like to be challenged. Ok, that’s not entirely true. When I’m rested, not stressed out, have lots of time, challenges..bring ’em. But after I’ve had a long day at work, I’m tired, we have a million and one obligations…not so much.
