In less than one week I will start the 10 Days of Real Food Pledge and I'm really excited! We've been on several mini-trips over the past month and eating clean has been challenging at times. My body is so ready for a little detox! If you haven't read about the pledge, you can read about it on 100 Days of Real Food. I plan on starting the pledge on August 12 (the day after my daughter's birthday which will surely be filled with NON-real foods!) and I'd LOVE for you to join me! I'm getting ready for the pledge by prepping some of my favorite foods like almond butter, whole wheat sandwich bread and whole wheat flour tortillas. I'm also stocking up on fruits and veggies and local dairy/meat from the farmer's market. Here is a picture of some local tomatoes and peppers as well as some whole wheat, homemade hamburger buns from my freezer - I adapted this recipe.
My menu plan for the 10 days on the pledge is:
Tuesday, August 12 - Pizza Stuffed Peppers
Wednesday, August 13 - Quiche & Salad
Thursday, August 14 - Baked Fish (hopefully from my husband's upcoming fishing trip!) & Carrot Fritters
Friday, August 15 - Cheeseburgers (using rolls from the freezer and local, grass-fed ground beef)
Saturday, August 16 - Whole Wheat Pizza (using this DIY Pizza Sauce recipe)
Sunday, August 17 - Eggplant Parmesan
Monday, August 18 - Salmon Salad
Tuesday, August 19 - Grilled Cheese (using homemade whole wheat bread) & Tomato Salad
Wednesday, August 20 - Baked Fish & Sauteed Kale
Thursday, August 21 - Mexican Quinoa with Poached Eggs
Will you take the pledge with me? I'd love to have some company along for the ride!!
