Exceptions: I'm allowing olive and coconut oils for cooking, and salt. I can use up already purchased produce with a limited shelf-life (carrots, celery, mushrooms). And I'm permitting my homemade pasta sauce (majority homegrown), and the applesauce made with our own apples (homegrown except for cinnamon), should I want to use them. And homemade beef, lamb and chicken stock that are already in the freezer. I may also allow some naturally-fermented soy sauce if we really need it for flavouring, but we'll see. That's it!
Why this challenge? There's lots to eat in the garden, and I've been wanting to get to the stage where we live off the homestead as much as possible. Old habits die hard and all that - so need a kick start to eating off our little block. Plus it's time to get back on track with healthy eating in general.
I'm not sure how much I'll post about it, as time is very limited currently, but will check in from time to time. At the very least, I'll let you know how it went. :-)
