whatever happened to the clean eating challenge?

if you are asking yourself that question, i don’t blame you. I started out posting about it every day, and then missed a couple of days, and then stopped all together. but that doesn’t mean hope and i didn’t do it! here’s the proof:

buzzfeed’s clean eating challenge day 2

i know, i’m late in posting this. sorrrrrrry…


it honestly feels like forever since i’ve had chips or a margarita. or a delicious rum and coke. but… it’s only day 2, so that’s cool.

breakfast: overnight oats with blueberries and chia seeds


good not great. i don’t really love greek yogurt (it’s growing on me) and i really don’t like oatmeal… but all in all it wasn’t that bad.

snack: sliced tomatoes with feta and basil


yep. this again please. it was awesome.


lunch: kale, chickpea and fennel salad with orange vinaigrette


we had no fennel and we were out of kale, so i used spinach instead. and i kept the quinoa on the side. this was pretty good.

snack 2: two tangerines. you know what those look like. so i didn’t take a picture.

dinner: nappa cabbage wraps with chicken, tomatoes, mango and avocado


this was really great, but super hard to eat and really messy. the cabbage was surprisingly good, though.


overall thoughts: will this ever end? also, i’m getting pretty tired of cooking and doing the dishes.




but i’m still enjoying it. hope is being pretty great about it too, os that definitely makes it easier.
