I am really excited to share with you some terrific news today! January is such an exciting time. Everything seems possible, doesn’t it? And……it’s coming quick! Wow….where did this year go?
I have had great success with our Real Food Challenges which I started in January 2013. Many of you committed to making healthier food choices for yourself and your family in 2013 and more joined in for the Real Food Experience 2014. I applaud you! I have received lots of great feedback about how the systematic change in eating is a great way to approach a diet overhaul. You have kept me motivated to keep up with a real food lifestyle for my family.
I would like to kick off 2015 with a similar, but new and improved approach. A complete diet overhaul is not easy, especially if you are eating mostly fast and processed food. I would like to help make it easier with lots of tips and advice. I’ve done the research and made the change to a real food lifestyle. Why reinvent the wheel? I bet even those of you who think you eat pretty healthy will benefit from cleaning up your diet even more. I have been surprised where I have found hidden artificial ingredients and sweeteners. I don’t mind sugar if I’m eating a cake, but darn it……….I don’t need sugar in my kidney beans. The good news is with my help, you won’t need to start from scratch. I can provide the advice and encouragement you need to be truly successful in changing to a real food lifestyle.
Benefits of eating real food:
Less diet related illness
Stronger immune system
And so much more………………….
What’s New This Year?
And to make things even more exciting this year I am adding even more bloggers to motivate you with great advice, meal plans (with recipes), and tips on keeping this busy real life of ours balanced. It is important to keep our family and our own health as the focus. Our families deserve healthy wives, mothers, sisters, grandmothers, don’t they? They sure do!
Juggling Real Food and Real Life will provide you with the systems you need to succeed, food education, and a new challenge each week. Nicky over at Little Family Adventure will make things easy by providing us with delicious meal plans and recipes related to the challenge each week. Gaye over at Calm.Healthy.Sexy. will keep us focused and motivated to make these changes. This is our Real Food Experience 2015 Super Team. And there is much more! Scarlett’s Excellent Adventures has also agreed to help us out and there will be other friends stopping in from time to time to visit with us and provide more fun and advice. Sounds awesome, right?
OK…….sounds good, so what else do I need to know about “The Real Food Experience 2015”?
I’ll start with what it is not. There is not anything special you need to buy. I’m not selling you a darn thing. I am simply interested in helping you to make a real food lifestyle change for you and your family. And…………hoping you pay it forward to another family.
We will start with 4 weeks of posts focused on 4 real food changes you can make.
Week 1: More Fruits and Vegetables
Week 2: Eat Whole Grains
Week 3: No Artificial Colors
Week 4: Natural Sweeteners
I am also putting together a special Facebook group for Juggling Real Food and Real Life’s Real Food Experience 2015 where you will have more personalized access to me and our Super Team. This will be a great place to ask questions. I know some of you are uncomfortable asking questions on social media and even on the blog, so I thought I would create a smaller and more intimate forum for us to have these conversations. No question is stupid and we will all be able to learn from and encourage each other.
This all starts January 5th and I am really excited to have you join me for The Real Food Experience 2015. If you would like to join me and my real food friends, please leave me a comment here on the blog. If you would like to join The Real Food Experience 2015 Facebook group, please let me know your Facebook email address.
