A Gut Healing meal

Technically yesterday was the first day of our challenge, but this will be my first meal post.

I didn't plan my groceries very well, and there's basically nothing left in our fridge. We get our Heliotrope veggie bin on Thursday, so we just had a few random things left from the last one.

For supper I thew together:
- Farm eggs with a neighbour's tomatoes, local garlic and rosemary; topped with leftover homemade salsa verde (Heliotrope tomatillos, cilantro, hot pepper)
- Leftover Lebanese cauliflower (cumin/garlic/lemon juice)
- Home pickled beets and onions
- Heliotrope 'lemon' cucumbers with flower salt

One of the challenge requirements is diversity by eating 30 different types of plant matter every week. Well this meal took care of 10 for the week!


Heal Your Gut Challenge 2014

We are doing another challenge at the gym. Read up on it here.

My dietary goals for this challenge are to cut out goat cheese and sweat treats. I don't think any of the other challenge requirements will give me grief.

Physically, I'd like to see gains in bodyweight movements. I've been focusing on gymnastics this Fall, and shedding a few pounds is a sure way to improve your pull ups and push ups!

I've measured myself up again and pulled my old numbers from way back in summer of '11 (just for "fun"!):
