Day 1

Well, day 1 is in the books.  It went pretty well considering we didn’t plan very well for our first week! No big grocery shopping trip, no meal plan. We had plans to do so, of course, but life got in the way 🙂

Here is the recap of what we had yesterday:

Breakfast – Cereal and coffee. I had coffee from home, Delph’s co-worker bought her’s (against the rules! Delph will have to do an extra morning at the end of the challenge, haha)

Lunch/Snacks – Ham and cheese wraps, carrot sticks, apples

Dinner – Grilled chicken with caramelized onions, and brussels sprouts

Dessert – Delph had a mini magnum chocolate bar

Today’s plan was more of the same, finding food from the fridge for most of the meals. I do have plans to make some yummy tomato soup for dinner tonight, and luckily already have the fixings for grilled cheese! Fall is definitely here 🙂

I’ll recap day 2 later tonight!

30 Day Challenge!

Hello! Welcome to our little corner of the internet! We will be chronicling our 30 day challenge to eat 100% homemade or home-prepared foods. In other words, 30 days with no take out or going out to eat. We really want to get back in the habit of eating at home and grocery shopping (and saving some money while we are at it!) 🙂 We know it won’t be easy, but we’re determined!

We got married in June and after 18 months of stressful wedding planning, we didn’t want to plan anything ever again! Needless to say, that included healthy meals at home. And while we aren’t specifically trying to eat super healthy, we know we always make better choices when we have fresh groceries in the house.

Here are the rules we have agreed on for the challenge (additions will be made if necessary):

  1. No eating out at restaurants
  2. No take out (includes salad bars, and fully prepared meals at the grocery store)
  3. No drinks out (includes coffee, alcohol)

Wish us luck!
