We've officially completed the 7 Day Real Food Challenge!
There were many times we were tempted to give up, but by supporting each other we hung in there. When I was too exhausted to cook because I worked ten or twelve hours, my sister stepped in and made dinner. When dinner was late and the dishes got left, my daughter did them next morning. When my sister worked late, I did the cooking and she prepped the night before.
Not only have we enjoyed eating healthier, but we learned that it is possible to eat at home, even when our schedules are hectic. And the kids learned about real food versus processed foods.
We also learned some new recipes that we will definitely be using again. I love that we got up and made breakfast instead of pointing the kids to the cereal and skipping breakfast myself. We ate fritatas three times this week, and each time was a little different! The nut and seed bars will be made frequently in this household from now on and the peanut butter truffles were divine. Thanks Holistic Mama for sponsoring this challenge!
