We have over 50 entrants to the challenge! I think this is a good number. It gives each of you a pretty good chance to win the vita-mix. I'll post more when I finish putting your info into an excel spreadsheet.
Saturday can be a challenge for me when I'm home more and doing more food prep. I think knowing I will post here makes me behave! So I did behave and here is what I ate:
brekky: some frozen fruit, mangos, cherries, blueberries, and some fresh local spinach. One reason I'm liking the frozen fruit is that I bought a bunch of fresh blueberries from Michigan (not too far from here) and froze them to make them last longer. They are really good! And I love mango but don't get good fresh mango here in Wisconsin. I ate a light breakfast because I had a yoga class.
Lunch: big ole' salad. It's a sign of Fall that we now get local spinach and lettuce again, both requiring cooler temperatures. I got a bunch so I just made a huge salad to split between lunch and dinner. All ingredients were local except the seeds and vinegar: cabbage, spinach, salad greens, cucumber, patty pan squash, yellow bell pepper, tomatoes, seed mixture. I also had corn on the cob. I ate a few grapes, carrots and sugar snap peas after yoga, sort of a finish to my brekky. Here's lunch.

I was surprised to see I lost 2 lbs this week. I didn't go hungry, just didn't overeat. My average caloric intake over the last 7 days was 1446. I gained about 6 lbs this summer from my deviations from healthy eating. I bet it was less than 10% of my total calories but they were very unhealthy foods, not at all what Dr. Fuhrman recommends for your 10% allocation of less healthy foods. It really is true that that stuff just goes right to fat on your body. I wouldn't mind converting that fat to muscle as my BMI is reasonably low (18.8). I had a good workout yesterday that should have helped.
