Idea for Next Challenge....

I had an idea for the next challenge..... but I want you working ladies opinions on it! It would take a lot of planning and effort but might be worth it.....

Two Weeks Eating NOTHING but Homemade Food

This came into my head because its sooooo easy to grab frozen foods or go by a fast food place and its never good for you. I think it would be a huge challenge to make all your food for 2 weeks. And I say 2 weeks because we want to make these things habits right??? And I'm not saying we should never eat out BUT if we force ourselves to find time to cook healthy things or prepare things in advance maybe we'll find its not as hard as we thought and do it more often??

Also I would add to the challenge that each week (so 2 times total) you will need to make something you've never made before..... a healthy something. And then you can post the recipe you used on the blog and say if it was easy or hard to do and if you liked it. Then we can steal each others recipes for cooking in the future!!

Disclaimer: I know events come up in our lives where friends or invite us out for dinner... don't be rude and go ahead and go with them. But eat light and healthy and DO NOT bring home leftovers. The biggest thing is not planning to eat out on your own.....

So what do you guys think? When would be a good time to start it for you guys?

I think this next Challenge sounds great. I would say lets begin after Labor Day weekend. It would give everyone time to write out a menu and make a grocery list.
Labor Day is Sept. 6th, so lets begin the 8th - Wed.
How does that sound to everyone?
Love ya, mom
