Last summer I did the 100 Days of Real Food challenge. This was a great challenge that sparked my interest into what I fed my body. I complete the challenge and felt amazing, I had lost weight, was no longer bloated, and just didn't have that run-down feeling I got from eating a lot of fast food.
Fast forward a year and I still try to cook clean and shop clean- but I admit I have slipped... a lot. We/I have become a person of convenience. This past school year was so hectic that I just didn't put in as much energy into our food, which in turn sapped my energy even more. Fast food and dining out became a weekly option.
Well, I am done with it. I have been reading more and more from Food Babe and 100 Days and other sources and am just done with all the crap that is put into our foods- that I am willingly serving to myself and my family. So, with my husband on board, we have decided to take the Whole 30 challenge. So this means for 30 days- no sugar, grains, legumes, alcohol, dairy, white potatoes, and MSG, or sulfites. So that is going to be a big change for both of us.
Good-bye Diet Coke. Good-bye margaritas. Good- bye yogurt. But hello to a healthy, completely cleaned out me!!
