So I am thinking about doing a 30 day challenge. What does the challenge consist of? This challenge is actually a little harder than my Pain B4 Gain Plan. Well here it goes….
- NO MEAT – For 30 DAYS (Yea, I know you might be thinking “is she crazy”)? Yea I might be, but If you don’t challenge yourself how will get further? I have done no meat for more than 30 days when I did the Daniel Fast and I felt GREAT!!
- Eat Beans for at least 5 days a week ( Lunch time)
- Continue to eat clean, whole grains, nuts, veggies, fruits, beans
- No cheat days….Sorry (No sweets, no fast foods…stay strong for 30 days)
The bean soup I will be making is a 3 Bean Chilli. Now I may change the beans a little during the weeks but this is the first bean soup I will be making. I will be eating the soup with some Basmati Brown Rice.
2 tbsp chili powder, or to taste1 tsp cumin
10 oz frozen onions
3 cups frozen broccoli, thawed and finely chopped
3 cloves garlic, chopped
Pinto beans (15 oz) can pinto beans, no-salt-added or low-sodium, rinsed and drained
black beans (15 oz) can black beans, no-salt-added or low-sodium, rinsed and drained
kidney beans (15 oz) can red beans, no-salt-added or low-sodium, rinsed and drained
1 (28 oz) can diced tomatoes, no-salt-added or low sodium
1 (4 oz) can chopped mild green chilies, drained
2 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels
Drink Apple Cider Vinegar 3 times a day before your meal.
Drink at least 64oz water a day
Exercise at least 30 mins 5 days a week
If you are feeling bloated at anytime you should drink Ginger Ice Tea
3 bags of ginger tea
1 cup fresh mint, chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
2 cups of water

This challenge is starting on June 10th 2013 and will end on July 10th 2013.
If you want to join the challenge go ahead. I will definitely check back in 30 days with photos and measurements of how this plan worked for me.
