Whole Living Challenge: Week 2 Recap

I made it through another week of the Whole Living Challenge! 2 down, 1 to go!

I mentioned in this post that I was slightly more nervous for Week 2 because I would be eating foods that were outside my comfort zone. For example, I tried tuna, salmon, haddock, tilapia, and quinoa for the first time. My thoughts? I loved the tuna. So much that I plan to include it in my meal plan for Week 3. As for the others, I could take them or leave them. I was glad to have tried something new but I doubt I’ll be eating them on a regular basis.

You can see what I ate each day below. How did the other Whole Living Challengers do? I’ll be back soon with my plan for Week 3.
