We’re on a six-week path to eat more whole foods, guided by one simple rule: Buy foods with six ingredients or fewer. And we’re blogging about our journey on the way.
This week we’re answering the question: What are you learning about your body through this challenge? Your family’s rhythms and routines? Your feelings about food?

What have I learned about myself? I have gotten better about taking my vitamins, and I have noticed they make a big difference in my energy levels. Coincidence? Perhaps. I have also gotten better about eating snacks and breakfast regularly. These also really help my energy levels. Practically this means my house is a lot cleaner, and we are getting out of the house more because I know it won’t drain me and make me worthless for the rest of the day.
I have also gotten better at making more out of less ingredients which is a boon for our budget. Winning recipe this week made with what was on hand was this black bean and butternut squash enchilada skillet.
We also had a little fun this week with a fun recipe we made up for lunch: peanut butter pizza. Maybe I’ll share it on the blog at some point. 🙂
