I’m just beyond the halfway point of the Whole Foods 28-day challenge. I was worried about this past weekend and if I would be able to keep up with the diet. A Memorial Day Weekend with no meat, dairy, oil, or refined sugar sounded really difficult.
But it wasn’t hard, in fact it was fabulous. Went to see friends on Friday and was treated to a wheat berry salad with fresh figs and mushrooms. My friend Christina, who is doing the challenge with me, made soup with garlic, onions, beans, zuchinni, and tomatoes. It was amazing.
Even more amazing was the trouble friend and MomsLA contributor Debbie (Manhattan Beach Momma), of Fresh Brothers Pizza went to for the blogger party at Fresh Brother’s new location. She made a vegan pizza for Sarah Auerswald and I with half no cheese and half Daiya cheese (some people like the gluten-free, dairy-free cheese, but I’m not one of them). My half was really good.
And not only that, but Debbie made a gluten-free pizza for my husband. Fresh Brothers has the best gluten-free pizza I’ve tasted.
My kids were happy because although they don’t have dietary restrictions, they are really picky. They got to make cheese pizzas with no sauce.
And decorate their own very-special-cupcakes. These were not vegan and definitely not sugar-free, but they were nice to look at.
