I've been obsessed with this blog lately:
http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/start-here/

Basically it's about a family who cut processed foods out of their diets for 100 days (and they have done several 100 day challenges including on a strict budget, etc). To be clear, it's not a diet blog.

I've always been very good at eating "real food." I shop at the famers market. I eat a lot of veggies. But I also have loads of crap in my house. Crackers from parties that end up in my mouth when I am rummaging through the pantry. Cookies that The Cute Boyfriend buys and then doesn't eat. Leftover naan. And then, with a new baby, it's really easy for me to just grab food (not fast food per se, but take out).

So I am going to take the ten day pledge starting June 1st.
http://www.100daysofrealfood.com/take-the-10-day-pledge/

The blog recommends you spend some time cleaning out your pantry, etc to prepare for the pledge. For me, the hardest part is planning. That's exactly what I am going to do.

If you're up for it, I hope you'll join! I'll be posting updates!

Thanks for the link. I may not do the pledge but I love sites like this - I'm just not patient enough to weed thru the tons of google results when I search for them. I'll be reading over this holiday weekend.

I am on their facebook site. Some good ideas! I am putting some of their ideas into my eating plan. Thanks.

I'm on day one and MAN, do I miss Coke Zero. It is only 10AM here but by this time, I would have had at least 32 ounces of it. SIGH.

On the good side, I have a fabulous lunch of Malai Sak planned (indian spinach) with a hard boiled egg. And I've already had some blueberries, grapefruit and yogurt.

My Cute Boyfriend is planning on making tomato sauce tonight for whole wheat pasta and a ton of veggies.
