***REAL Food Linky*** ends July 20th
By preparing for meals in advance there will be no last-minute call to the local pizza place to waste money on junk food. Also, by purchasing organic REAL food ingredients at the local "big-box" store I'll definitely save $$.
Last night when I mentioned Our 7-Day Real Food Challenge to my mom she said "Sounds daunting." Without proper recipes and preparation this challenge might seem daunting. For us is it simply getting back into the routine of eating simply. It might seem easier to order a pizza or drive-thru but not when it comes time to button up your pants or put on a bathing suit. Not to mention the damage to your health.

Zucchini, Eggplant, Bell Peppers, Mushrooms, Onions, Leeks, Kale, Broccoli, Ginger, Red Potatoes, Sweet Potatoes, LOTS of Watermelon, Lemons, Grapes, Strawberries, Broccoli Slaw, Eggs, Homemade Lentil Soup and Cooked Quinoa.
For my husband I also have roast chicken in the fridge and 1/2 roast turkey in the freezer. Both homemade using un-processed ingredients.
*I did not throw out the store-bought condiments* I don't need a riot on my hands in my own house...baby steps!!!
My husband also wanted to know if I'll make him cake. Seriously? I don't even make dessert on a regular basis and you want one now? He's been such a trooper lately that I might have to try my hand at something to surprise him.
We will definitely be sipping on more HomeGrown Basil Lemonade. I LOVE this recipe and make it regularly!!!
