Day 2: 30 Days of Unprocessed Food

Well, we survived day 1 and 2! I think this first week is going to be a piece of cake (no pun intended). Things will probably start to get difficult around week 3 or 4 when my mouth starts to water at the first thought of chocolate! We had whole wheat brownies last night, and I think they satisfied the craving pretty well. Hopefully it stays that way. My husband and I both agreed that we went to bed last night feeling comfortably full and not deprived. Remember, this 30 days is not a "diet". We are not cutting back our calories, we are simply avoiding all additives and processed foods. My daughter goes to preschool 3 days a week and I am so grateful that they are understanding of my desire for her to not have junk. When the other kids receive gummy bears as reinforcement, my daughter receives fruit leather. Although she is following the 30 day plan with us, she doesn't always eat what my husband and I eat. I will post below what she ate for lunch. I dread the day that she starts kindergarten and I have to let go a little more and accept the fact that she will eat junk once in a while. Maybe by that time, there will be a little more awareness in our elementary schools.  Ugh. I'll cross that bridge when I get there! Needless to say, the three of us are doing great so far. There have been no major obstacles yet.  I know that we will have obstacles in the future if we are invited to someones' house for dinner, etc. We will simply have to tell them our 30 day goal and plan accordingly. Here is what we are eating today:

Organic strawberries with honey whipped cream. Real Delicious!

Day 2:
Breakfast: (We swapped our breakfast with day 3.) Green eggs with Ezekiel toast and apple slices.
Lunch: Leftover tostadas with carrot sticks.
My Daughter's Lunch: 1/2 peanut butter and jelly on Ezekiel bread,  (jelly is sweetened with fruit juice), blackberries, carrot sticks, organic hotdog, whole wheat brownie.
Snack: Handful of raw almonds and apple slices.
Dinner: Grilled organic chicken drumsticks with quinoa and broccoli (asparagus was not fresh at store, so I substituted broccoli.)
Dessert: Strawberries with organic whipped cream sweetened with honey.

Delia, you are amazing!! I am so inspired and think this will be really fun to see your journey thru these next 30 days. I know I will learn a lot from you, and hopefully be able to make better choices for my health :)

Lisa, thank you for your sweet comment! I think I will also learn a lot over these 30 days. Having meals planned ahead of time has already made my life easier. It is nice to wake up in the morning and already have a plan for dinner. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment:)
