Week 2: Spring 2012 30-Day Real Food ChallengeApril 30, 2012
Welcome to week 2.
Start posting your comments HERE!
This week, you should be concerned with using NEW ingredients and making NEW dishes. You know that meat & veggies are your best options, but have you branched out? Are you still eating chicken and peppers/onions every night?
Have you tried brisket yet? kale? parsnips? brussels sprouts? endive? bok choy? swiss chard? ground lamb? Asian Five Spice Powder? beef liver? raw saurkraut? stone ground mustard? ribeye steak? pork shoulder? wild caught corvina? Fenugreek?
Spend some time on Paleo recipe blogs, talking with other members, and chatting here online/swapping recipes. You’d be surprised at what falls under the category of “meat, vegetables and spices”. I’ve seen real-food recipes that call for over 25 ingredients in one dish!
The goal during this week is to branch out and try to make an entire week’s worth of food that is not just healthy, but DELICIOUS.
Also, if you were substituting sugary snacks with fruit, now would be a good time to half the amount of fruit you are having. Use it as a ‘treat’ rather than a daily crutch to get you through.
1. What’s your favorite new ingredient to cook with? How do you prepare it?
2. Have you gone out to eat? What did you order?
3. Have people asked you about the challenge? Do they wonder why you’re eating differently? What do you tell them?This entry was posted in 30 Day Challenge. Bookmark the permalink. ← A (Delicious) Day in the Life of: Cathy Innes WOD: Tuesday, May 1st →
