So I am on a 28 day healthy-clean-detoxing-plant-based challenge. The challenge is to eat whole, unprocessed foods, tons of plants, no refined sugars, only healthy fats (seeds, nuts & avos), and nutrient-dense food (eat the rainbow.) I think we’re going to be just fine.
BUT…Just to put things into perspective; there will always be something that comes up and makes you want to cave. Something tempting that shows up, gets in your face, and tries to make you buckle. No way around it.
Case in point….yesterday, the very first (full) day of the challenge my brother-in-law, who was visiting from Colorado, showed up at my front door at 8am with 2 dozen (what?!!!) boxes of Shipley’s doughnuts. What did I do? I stuck to my guns and made this in 10 minutes! Phew, passed the test. That was close.
