Foods You Should Eat Everyday Challenge – Day 7

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

YAY!  This challenge is over.  I mean, ahem… cough cough…

Ok, let’s be real.  The challenge wasn’t that bad.  And I feel good.  And my insides seem pretty happy (after the first 36 hours or so)

However, I kind of felt bored.  I got tired of eating the same things every day (with the exception of dinner).  I also missed my soup.  If you read my blog, you know that I have a small soup problem.  I love soup. 

So, I think that I will focus on trying to incorporate more of these foods into my daily diet, but I can definitely say that there’s no way that I could maintain this meal plan long term.  It would work great for someone who doesn’t need a lot of variety though. 

What do you think?  Could you follow this?

Also – do you find that it’s sooooo much harder to follow your diet on a weekend?  I certainly do. 

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.
