Foods You Should Eat Everyday Challenge – Day 3

If you didn’t catch my initial post with the list of the foods you should eat every day you can click here

I mentioned yesterday that on Day 1 of this challenge my tummy wasn’t really agreeing with me very much.  That seems to have completely passed at this point and now I’m feeling pretty darn good!  I also mentioned yesterday that I had a friend coming over for dinner last night and I am happy to admit that she LOVED what I made for dinner.  Yippee!  I should confess, however, that I snuck in some additional items with dinner that weren’t on my original mean plan for the night.  I’m blaming that on entertaining a guest.  Lol. 

I’m still finding out that my original meal plan was just waaaay too much food.  As you’ll see below, there’s a lot that’s not getting eaten every day. 

I am starting to get cravings for things at this point – mostly cheese.  I love cheese.  Even though my dinners have cheese in them there’s no cheese in my lunches and I’m missing it. 

Below is my original meal plan.  I’ve scratched through some things so that I can show you what I didn’t eat on Wednesday.
