Day One

I just couldn’t wait until tomorrow to start this challenge.  My body and mind were ready this morning. I started my day with persimmon…such a great fruit, but make sure it’s ripe or otherwise the tannins are so strong you’ll get a case of cottonmouth in one second!

For lunch I made miso soup. Is this supposed to be hard? LOL! Not yet it’s not.


Above: Freshly cut miso soup ingredients: firm tofu, green onions, shitake and oyster mushrooms, dehydrated seaweed. Yummmm….

Below: My lunch.


Below: Ingredients for making snacks – kale chips, sweet potato chips. Fresh kale leaves, onion powder, garlic powder, a splash of olive oil, pinch of chipotle pepper powder (for heat and smokiness), and Himalayan pink salt.  Lay down parchment paper on a baking sheet, preheat the oven to 300 degrees, bake for 25 minutes (until crisp and moisture free).


Below: The finished kale chips along with some sweet potato chips.  The sweet potato chips were cooked in the microwave for four minutes on a silicone rubber dehydrating mat.  And I re-purposed my cookie jar!

  1. So today’s my first day of the 90 day challenge. I really started yesterday however I did have one sliver of chicken so I guess my true start date is today. My vita mix is scheduled to show up today whoop whoop can’t wait to get started. Drinking lots of water I know with the support of you and since we did this agreement together will get through the 90 days. I’m glad that wine is made out of grapes, but I’m giving up alcohol Monday through Friday. Last night and made an amazing salad of fresh greens cucumber bell peppers all different colors tomatoes and a light vinaigrette. It was so delicious. And I was so full. The miso soup you made looked wonderful. I’ll be doing that this weekend. So here we go girl to a cleaner healthier life. So that we can spend more Time with her family and with each other. Years to a healthier lifestyle. Thanks Mike for the challenge.
