November Challenge

Ah, November is rolling around, and I’m getting bored.  Starting November 1st, I will be doing a new experiment, but I haven’t quite figured out what I should do yet.

I need your help!

So far I have come up with 4 diet challenges that I’m interested in trying for the entire month (and I’m open to other suggestions):

College diet (aka nothin’ but ramen): I don’t think this will improve my quality of life one bit, BUT it would be interesting to see exactly what the effects of eating something bare like ramen would have. I always do healthy, good for you challenges, at some point I need to do a “Eat nothing but pizza and popcorn” diet.

(Still easy, but one step up): Fresh bread with brushetta. Simple, yet delicious. Tomatoes, basil, (tiny bit of) onion, olive oil, salt and pepper. Usually you can even buy pre-cut/pre-made stuff from the grocery store.

Salad: Add a salad if you go with plain bread. Continue reading
