Foods You Should Eat Everyday Challenge – Day 4

Well I’m baaaaaaaaaack! 

Sorry for the delay but as I previously mentioned I went down for the count with bronchitis as well as pink eye in BOTH eyes.  It’s not been just a barrel of laughs around here unfortunately. 

However, I’m on the mend!  Yippee!

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

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. 

As I mentioned on day 3, I was starting to get cravings for things like cheese.  In a way, I’m glad that I got sick because I got to take a break from the challenge!  Kind of sad I know.  I have definitely realized that if I’m going to eat healthier I have to make gradual changes… not try to change the world in 24 hours.
