Real Food- Day 1

Day one of our eat real food challenge was a success! I actually remembered to take a picture of everything I ate. Woohoo!

Breakfast: Whole Wheat Waffles with Basil Fruit Salad
I found an awesome recipe for whole wheat waffles, but I can't seem to figure out where I put it once we were done! If I find It I'll post it because there were so good! They didn't even taste like whole wheat!
To make the topping we whipped three egg whites until they got to the consistency we wanted, then whipped in about 1tsp of maple syrup. My uncle makes it with sugar and calls it whip, so we decided to make whip flavored with maple syrup for a healthier option! I thought it was the perfect amount of sweetness, but Will still added more maple syrup to his waffle.

For the fruit salad we just cut up an orange, an apple and a banana and mixed in some fresh basil- it's an unbeatable combo! It's great with fresh strawberries too.

Snack: Orange Raspberry smoothie
1 C raspberries, 1/2 orange, 3/4C milk (approximately). Not too sweet, just perfect for me!

Lunch:Turkey sausage,white bean and kale soup (
Leftovers from the other night. The turkey sausage in this soup is homemade and so good! This is a favorite around here for sure.

This is my favorite kind of Larabar. They're so good, but not cheap! I've seen lots of recipes lately for homemade ones, I think I may have to try them out this week.

Dinner: Asian Lettuce Wraps

The picture is not appetizing, but these are amazing. Seriously. Best recipe I've tried in a long time, and it was really easy! How can you beat that?

Movie Snack:

Whirley pop! Does anyone else have one of these? It makes the best popcorn ever, you don't have to put anything besides salt on it. We usually use 1tbsp olive oil and 1/3 C popcorn kernels for the best taste.

We watched The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo last night, we both really liked it, but Will found it kind of hard to follow since he didn't read the book. Has anyone else watched the movie and not read the book?

Today for me is going to consist of taking Baxter for a walk and trying to clean out my purple room (our spare room that I decided to paint Easter egg purple.. who lets me make these decisions??) . Hope everyone has a great day!


  1. Did you just whip the egg whites by hand or with a mixer? I'm so going to try this! I really need to reduce my sugar intake.

    I need to eat more smoothies too.

    1. I used a mixer on med high, i think it took about 2 mins.

      I seem to go through smoothie phases, I'll eat them everyday for a while and then I forget about them. They're so yummy and easy though!!
