DAY 1 of 30: MEAT & VEGGIES ONLY CHALLENGE

I have been challenged by my husband to commit to consuming meat and vegetables for the next 30 days, effective today 01|02|2020. With meat and vegetables I am able to add any condiments and/or toppings. For example: ketchup, mustard, mayo, lettuce, tomatoes (I hate tomatoes), and pickles. For beverages: water and tea (tea counts towards your water intake). Now, when I mention tea I am not referencing “sweet tea” or any tea beverages with artificial sweeteners.

Most importantly, this challenge involves me eliminating iced coffee. I am one of those avid iced coffee addicts and this 30 day challenge definitely will be a challenge for me as I eliminate coffee. Aside, from a caffeine headache which will probably occur with my sudden stop of caffeine, I am going to miss the social part of enjoying my iced coffee in the mornings.

During the next 30 days I hope to successfully transition from coffee to tea. There are so many different tea blends that have multiple health benefits (reduce bloating, curve cravings, cure upset stomach, relax).

I will keep each of you updated with my progress over the next 30 days and post pictures of my meals throughout the day.

Take a look at my lunch from today:
