Halfway Through the 30 Day REAL Food Challenge

So it's the morning of the start of week three; 14 days done of the 30 Day REAL Food Challenge.  So what does that mean?

Well, here's what I've discovered in the past couple of weeks:
  • I have never eaten so many greens in my entire life!
  • It's shocking how delicious and flavourful simple and clean meals can be.
  • I think I may have mastered the art of picking and eating an avocado.
  • No cheese, no coffee, no meat, no chips and I'm still alive!
  • Clean eating involves a little bit of prep-work, but is actually fairly easy.
  • My body runs better with better fuel.  i.e. real food
  • Resisting temptation is an on going struggle.
  • Sometimes a cheat day is exactly what you need to see you're on the right track. 
  • Retrain your taste buds...it's unbelievable!
  • Don't worry about what others think, just take care of you!
We are starting week 3 and that means a whole new round of recipes that I can't wait to try.  Out of all the 40+ recipes I've made over the past couple weeks, I think there were only 2 or 3 that I wasn't a big fan of.  The rest were amazing, fantastic vegan recipes that were surprisingly tasty and filling!

And now for the weigh-in...

Now this wasn't the only reason we decided to do this program, but both my husband and I definitely wanted to shed a few of those holiday pounds.  As of today, I am down 7 lbs and Mike is down 6 lbs!  Pretty amazing, even with our cheat day this past weekend!

Now bring on Week 3!
