Real Food Challenge

Last night, I was surfing the world wide web and my browser landed on the blog 100 Days of Real Food . The blog is the story of one family's journey to remove overly processed food from their diet. As I read post after post from the author, Lisa, I felt myself nodding along with her points.

Part of Lisa's blog is a 10 Day Pledge. For 10 days, particpants pledge to follow the The Rules that Lisa created for her family.

As much as I hate to admit it, I have become quite dependant on convience foods - my pantry contains way too many items that are boxes/bags/packages with ingrident lists that are extremely long. I would like to move my family towards Lisa's way of eating. However, it is hard to change life long habits overnight. So I am going to take the 10 Day Pledge for myself. I hope that by doing so, I can motivate my husband to join me, and together we can embracing eating less processed food.

I will be posting about my success and failures with the 10 Day Pledge, and I encourage each of you to join me.


  1. I'm working really, really hard on eliminating processed food. It's a long road; I love some of the convenience foods. But I know they aren't good for me, and they are not going to help me lose the weight I want to lose at all!
