One Week Wholefoods Challenge – Feb 2012!

Roll up, roll up! It’s time for a bite sized challenge that will kick-start your wellbeing and have you equal parts zinging with energy and cruising with calm. Sound good? Then read on.

So here’s the deal:

♥ For one week from Monday 13th of February – Sunday 19th December I am going to be doing my darnedest to eat only wholefoods. This means no junk food like: chips, chocolate, burgers, icecream, candy, biscuits etc. I would like you to join me if you feel so inspired!

What can we have instead?

Instead we will feast like Kings, Queens & other noble folk on everything that is GOOD FOR US! 🙂 This means wholefoods and herbal teas, smoothies and lean sources of protein – I would encourage you to cut out as much meat as possible for this one week, if you eat it, otherwise try and get free range! You can get all your protein needs met from vegetable sources such as lentils, chickpeas, beans, avocados and, my favourite, quinoa!

How do I keep track?

Commenting on this post! I’ll be coming back and updating my diet day-by-day so you can check out what I’ve been eating, I’d love you to share your daily menus (and how you’re feeling) in the comments section below and ask any questions you need answered + check out what other healthy delights participants have been tucking into.
