Hello all you beautiful people! I wanted to challenge you to make 2018 your healthiest year yet! My family and I have challenged ourselves to eating a whole-food-plant-based diet 353 days during 2018! This allows us a little "wiggle room" for holidays, birthdays, and other "special" occasions. We are focusing on eating whole grains, vegetables, fruit, raw nuts, beans, peas, and lentils. Instead of highly processed white sugar- we pledge to use "natural" sweeteners, in small amounts, when needed. Examples include: black strap molasses, dates and date sugar, honey, agave, and pure maple syrup.
In addition to eating healthier, we are using the "353" pledge to get moving too. We have decided to have family fitness goals for 2018. We will each do a sprint triathalon (the first "3" in 353 stands for "tri"), we will each do a 5K race (the "5" in 353 stands for 5K), and we will ride in a 30 mile bike ride (the last "3" in 353 stands for "30").
To share our journey, we will post monthly VLOGs on You-Tube and hope to share some of our everyday recipes with you as well.
We hope you join us in making a commitment to getting healthier in 2018!
