Vacation Bible School is not for someone taking a Real Food Pledge. The menu was hotdogs (more ingredients than I want to read or pronounce), white buns (not whole wheat), cookies & brownies (sugar), potato chips (fried) and soft drinks (sugar). I drank bottled water and waited until I got home to have a couple of pieces of cold pizza left over from last night. Now, let me make this clear -- after this 10 days of Real Food, I do not plan to turn my nose up at food put before me when I am out in public. I think it is always good manners to enjoy the food and fellowship when you are with others. I do HOPE that after these initial 10 days I will be more conscientious of what I eat and purchase for my family. I am enjoying the low sugar aspect of this plan. When you can only eat honey or maple syrup, it really cuts out what sweets you eat. You either have to make it from scratch or do without. The same with some bread products. We'll see how the rest of my 6 days go.
My husband chose his spelt pizza for supper tonight so I fixed myself breakfast...my favorite food! I had grits with scrambled eggs on top and a little shredded white cheddar cheese. Breakfast bowls are so good and so much more nutritious if you make them yourself.
I'll leave you tonight with a shot of our cat, CC, hiding under the okra plants in our garden. Looking forward to the okra!
