Bad Blogging

So it took me so long to "finish" that "First Week" post that it has now been two weeks. I wanted to post every week, and I promise I have more stories to tell.

The First Week

It was a week of good food and very little sugar or processed foods. There were challenges. There were some really yummy meals. (Many of which were documented on the facebook page) Friday we had planned a night out with friends and knew we would be eating dinner out after seeing a movie. We decided to treat ourselves a little, but we did pretty well. 

My favorite thing I have eaten so far:

Greek Gods plain yogurt with honey and cinnamon added. Layered with fresh fruit (strawberries, blueberries, and nectarine) and amazing granola from the Farmer's Market. (Made by Robin Lane) I drizzled honey between the layers and on top too. So. Delicious.

Facebook Page

We have a facebook page to help us record our journey. Right now most of the traffic to this blog comes here from there, but just in case you come here from elsewhere, please do visit us there as well. :) Thanks for being interested. If you have any tips, recipes, or suggestions let us know. 

This is Brad's breakfast.

The Beginning

We, as a family, are trying something new. This is something that we have been heading toward, but after watching FED UP  (a 2014 documentary from Executive Producer Katie Couric about the addictive nature of our food) we decided that now is the time. We are giving up processed foods and extremely limiting our sugar intake. We are addicts. This is already hard. We are only on day one. 

We began this morning by walking to the farmer's market and grocery store. Wow, you can really skip a lot of the grocery store when you are giving up processed foods.

Day one is coming to a close and we are all kind of twitchy. The addiction is real folks.  Dinner was delicious though. :) - Jen
