Day 14th of the WF-NC Challenge and more...

Hello!  I hope you are doing well.  I am super-duper excited because I finally received the rest of my DVD order in the mail yesterday!
 I have heard great things about these 2 series; can't wait to start!

Yesterday (day 14):   OK, I don't know if it was the fact that it was a Friday or what but, I was having crazy cravings for, chocolates, wine, olives, cheese and nuts.  In other words; I was in the mood for a wine tasting tour or these could simply be signs that my TOM is coming.  

Now, there's nothing wrong with any of those things (in moderation), but some of them aren't Whole Foods-No Crap Challenge approved.  Whenever I get the: "I want to eat the entire kitchen and drink all the wine in the world" cravings, I go through old photos.  This serves as a reminder of how far I have come and all the work that I have put in.  Besides, I'm 2 weeks into this challenge so... Why give up now?  
Upon my photo browsing I came across this photo which was taken June 2011 on a camping trip to Valdez.
If you want to see my current photo update click here.  The photos did the trick!

OK!  On to what I ate on day 14 of the Whole Foods-No Crap Challenge.  
As a reminder, (because I don't always mention it) I always start my morning with my daily detox.  I have been doing this detox every morning for a year now and will continue with it for as long as I live.  I have been adding an ounce of organic pineapple juice to spice it up a bit since I am not drinking any caffeine and also for an additional carb boost since I do the detox prior to my morning workout.

My Instagramed meals:
Now, if you follow me on Instagram or twitter @ahealthyfitrme, you have already seen some of these above.  I love using Instagram for meal sharing/accountability.  It's also easier since I eat at my desk at work.  You should follow me, I'll follow back!  I love to see what other people eat and such...

Dinner: I came home to a delicious salad made by my hubby...
It was delish!  I went  back for seconds!  Joe has been raving about this salad for a week now.  He had it at a bowling alley (odd) when he was in California last week, and has been wanting to recreate it at home.  Now, I understand why he was so thrilled about it! LOL!  Click here for recipe!

I will be back tomorrow with more meal sharing!  
Question: How do you deal with food cravings?


  1. That salad looks fantastic!! Can't wait to know to recipe! :)

    I've found that I have to keep anything that would tempt me out of the house! Also, if I stay fueled with yummy healthy food throughout the day (i.e. not let myself go hungry) then cravings are usually kept at bay.

    Although sometimes you just have to give in (a little!) and enjoy! :)

    1. Thanks for stopping by Moe! I posted the recipe to the salad. Great tip! I agree, I tend to do the same. Have a great day!
