Day 1, Fall 2014 28 day Engine 2 challenge in Northeast PA!

Leave a comment

My friend and fellow blogger from A Year of Going Vegan suggested I repost my day in meals that I am sharing with my Engine 2 diet group in Northeast PA for each day during our 28 day challenge here on my blog.  So here is day one, a day late. Our challenge started yesterday after we met Sunday to share success stories of folks who have been eating this way already and share tips and ideas with new folks. Here goes!

Happy Day 1 of our Fall 28 day challenge! Hope you all had a great food day and a great all around time on this sunny day! We had our brunch and slide show today for our Appalachia Service project  group to show everyone our work from last summer and invite new youth and adults to join us in the summer of 2015. Thanks to my sister, Bonnie, and our leader, Sue, we were able to eat some great healthy foods and not feel left out from the celebration. Looking forward to hearing about how you are doing as this challenge progresses!

Breakfast: Oatmeal with blueberries, blackberries, cherries and strawberries and herbal tea

Brunch: Great plantstong waffle made by Bonnie with oats, flaxseed and other great ingredients. I need the recipe! We also had fresh fruit salad, and carrot muffins Bonnie made.

Snack: Not the best choice, a chocolate muffin from a Happy Herbivore recipe I made for the brunch, mistake was bringing leftovers home.

Supper: Salad with spinach, romaine, carrots, chia seeds, cucumbers, tomatoes, yellow bell pepper and a pizza with a whole wheat crust I made from a Happy herbivore recipe topped with hummus and tomato chutney with caramelized onions, recipe in the Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease cookbook.
