This week, beginning on Monday, we are starting fresh with the same resolution for no desserts and also something new. Recently I've been inspired by a website about a family who made a resolution to eat Real Food. They've made it easy for others to join in the fun by breaking down the Real Food journey into mini-challenges, which I will be tackling along with Julie, a good friend of mine as well as family - she is married to Josh's cousin Brian!
The best things about these mini-pledges is that they are simple and relatively small steps. This is something that Josh really appreciates - I have a tendency to make wild and crazy resolutions in the wee hours of the morning, only to cast them aside at the first inconvenience (which makes him crazy, understandably). This one-step-at-a-time approach is much more his jam.
Week One of the Real Food Pledge:
Eat a minimum of two fruits / vegetables with each meal
I think this will be easiest for dinner and hardest for breakfast. For simplicity's sake I may revert to the great habit of having a smoothie for breakfast - straightforward and nutritious.
If anyone is interested in joining us in this challenge, please chime in!
