This was the sunrise this morning and he pic did not really capture the riot of colour:
Sorry it is sideways, but that happens when I take pics with my phone, I will try get another one that is right way up!
I did it, no coffee for one whole day. Yes I had a headache, even from missing my 2 cups of coffee, but I had unsweetened chocolate/ or 90 % cocoa with a hand full of nuts in the evening after my AMAZING curry Soup dinner!
I found an amazing recipe for Thai Coconut curry soup, but I did not have lemon grass, or green curry paste, or green onions, or bean sprouts, or cilantro leaves......or lime leaves....and the list goes on. So I decided to make my own version of it with the spices and veggies ( and left over turkey that has been frozen) that I have on hand.
My husband ( who does not like Thai food) loved it!
Oh my goodness, Let me just say I was in heaven, it tasted SOOOO good and it was grain and sugar and wheat free. Delicious! I will post the recipe, but here is what it looked like!
Hang in there, the recipe is coming up soon. Easy to make it vegetarian, just replace the turkey and the chicken broth.
My husband commented last night how yummy the meals have been lately and I can attribute it to two things, 1. I got a food processor for Christmas and it chops veggies in a heart beat. Love it and...
2. This challenge. It has forced me to make healthier choices and I gotta have some real recipe's, not only real but ORIGINAL recipe's for my ladies on the challenge and my readers. So thanks for helping me get back to LOADS of veggies.
This morning I went grocery shopping at a store I do not usually go to and I got a few ASIAN and RUSSIAN foods there that I can't get elsewhere and a TON of COCONUT MILK, OIL and I am in heaven. Can't wait to use it in a new recipe or two.
How are you all doing on day 8 of your challenge?
Please also feel free to send me pics of your healthy choices to post.
I have quite a few deadlines this week so I am really strapped for time, so I apologise if I Don't visit your page after you post, I will get to it.
I have the car today and have to take kids to dentist appointments and pick up DH from work. So time is short....

I have a writer's meeting tomorrow that I need to prepare for AND I am doing the music on SUNDAY at Church so I have a slightly insane workload this week. Hey, Glad I am eating well, or I would NEVER get through it!
