My dear friend, Suzy, introduced me last year to 'No Junk Food January.' Since I love randomly giving up things and making everything in my life a competition, I've decided to partake in this adventure.
What is junk food? That is an interesting question. Everyone has their own little definition and of course there is even a wikipedia article about it.
My rules so far are:
-no fried food
-no desserts, candy, ice cream or anything of the like
-no food with excessive amounts of cheese
-no muffins or scones from Caribou
Those are the big ones. Overall my goal is to bring my lunch to work a whole lot more and make a lot more food at my house. We'll see how this goes...
For my next competition, I thought about no processed food feb., but that might be a little to intense a little to quickly. I guess I need to see how this month goes before I dive into such a giant task.
