We are twenty days into our 30 day, no sugar challenge, and let me tell you that it feels great to have stuck with the plan. There have been a few slips along the way like the three restaurant meals we had while out of town for the weekend, or the night hot chocolate was served at a skating party; but for the most part I can say we have followed the “rules.”
Here are the top 5 Reasons eating whole has been good for our family:
This is just the beginning for our family. I have been deeply touched by Jen Hatmaker’s book “7.” The book is described, as a “call toward Christ-like simplicity and generosity that transcends a social experiment to become a radically better existence.” Cutting back on treats and sugars this month has been a tipping point. It’s made us realize that cutting back is doable. It has clued me in to the fact that we have and consume too much and we’re prepared to make a shift! I keep telling the kids that this experiment is about to get RADICAL. We’ll see how radical they feel next month as they figure out what 7 article of clothes they want to wear for an entire month!!!
As Jen wrote the book, some of her friends took part in certain aspects of the experiment. We’d love to have company and accountability on this journey, and would welcome you and your family along for the ride! Be blessed my friends.
