Happy hump day! I hope the week is treating you good.    I do not have any pictures to share except for a couple of cell phone pics,  but thought I would touch base.  I am on day eleven and have to admit I cheated. I haven’t consumed meat but did a pastry. I could not help myself. I love bake goods.   I also have had some criticism about my challenge from friends and family.  I was not surprised and I am not an expert, but I have taken numerous nutrition courses, I research a lot, and I am a nurse. I love the study of nutrition so much that I drive my friends and family nuts preaching about the benefits of a process free  diet. I assured them I was doing this as safely as possible to make sure I am meeting my dietary needs.     Before I started my challenge, I have lead a pretty healthy lifestyle and cook with whole foods and very little process.  I will be including the link to 100 days of Real Food.  That site sums up my belief on nutrition and cooking with whole and full fat foods.  I do not see myself practicing Veganism after my challenge but I will be cutting down on my meat consumption. I have found some fantastic recipes.  This week I have made Veggie Enchiladas, Lentil Sloppy Joes, smoothies, Lettuce Wraps, and tons of fruits and veggies. I eat lots of avocados and I love trail mix. I also have tried a few process foods like cashew ice cream and soy ice-cream sandwiches after all a girl needs a treat here and there.
