Almost Habit

If it only takes 21 days to make a habit,
then I should be well on my way.
Hubby and I are finishing our 27th day
of a more clean eating style.
Tomorrow we finish the plan and start again at day 1 with just a few tweaks to help some of the meals.

We did have 3 cheat meals.
We enjoyed a Gluten free pizza at Pizza Hut,
we enjoyed a birthday dinner from PF Changs,
we enjoyed a date at Zoe's Kitchen (not really a cheat - very healthy and on plan).

What have we learned ...
We definitely did not eat enough veggies before.
Something in our former diet prevented hubby from eating most raw fruit ...
he is eating apples, bananas, and oranges (the worst offenders before) almost every day.
Cutting sugar helps limit general aches and pains.
Clean eating takes a lot more prep.
Discipline is hard.
It is good to "eat ... for strength and not for drunkenness."

This week's menu:
Sunday:  Leftover Fried Rice
Monday: Black Bean and Butternut Squash Saute
Tuesday: Penne with Veggie Stir fry
Wednesday:  Salmon and Rice
Thursday: Penne and Broccoli
Friday: Spaghetti Squash and Beans
Saturday: Flat Bread Pizza
