That's easy, actually. I want to do this because I mostly already do. There are a handful of things we keep on hand that have more than 6 things in them, like soy sauce and salad dressings. Also we have a number of gluten free things on hand, because of Moira's wheat sensitivities.
I'm going to alter the challenge a little bit for us. The first one being that I'm not starting until today (the challenge started on the 1st), because the kids and I went on a road trip planned. The second thing is that I've been thinking about going through my Grandma's recipe collection for awhile, and updating the recipes. This seems like the perfect time to try that, so once a week, I'm going to rework a vintage recipe to use whole, simple ingredients. Lastly, because I mostly cook gluten free for Moira, there will be some things I continue to buy, like GF bread, that have more than 6 ingredients.
Anyway, I'm hoping it will be fun to play along!
We're on a six-week path to eat more whole foods, guided by one simple rule: Buy foods with six ingredients or fewer. And we're blogging about our journey on the way.
This week we're answering the question: Why do you want to participate in the Six Ingredient Challenge?
