Our 7-Day Real Food Challenge START!

Today is the big day!  Today is the first day of Our 7-Day Real Food Challenge.  Check out this Amazing Pintrest Board from Lydia.

Mary's Kitchen

In preparation...Last night I grilled a large red sweet onion and a bit of eggplant.  The only "sauce" was olive oil and balsamic vinegar.  I also added a bit of pepper.  This will most likely go over quinoa.

For my husband, I cooked up 2 pounds of chicken in the slow cooker.  I used only organic spices: sea salt, pepper, garlic, cumin and smoked paprika.  No pre-made, broth...just water and large onion chunks.  He always say "Delicious."

This is how I started my day!
This morning we are off to the Farmer's Market. I'm looking forward to digging into a nice juicy watermelon!

At the moment we are 8 bloggers participating in this challenge:

Before I go...There is still time to enter the FREE Heirloom Seeds giveaway on our facebook page.  ENDS tonight!


  1. I found my way here for It's all connected blog. Wonderful idea. I try to use as much local and fresh food as possible. It will be interesting to follow along and see how you all progress.

  2. Sounds like you are off to a great day! I made a mistake this morning (I think it was just out of habit... I wasn't fully awake.) But the rest of the day I have planned out.
