I think this will be an adventure worth taking and maybe will take the “challenges” out of working real food into our daily life. Anyone want to join me in the challenge?
So for the next month I am going to just focus on the challenge above and let you all know how it goes. Let’s see if I can do this on a budget. I think I can……
