Full Bars! Celia Wins.
As you can imagine, tabulating, preparing and posting our daily attempts to Eat in 3D takes far more time that the enterprise itself. Since I have shared with you how the program works and the detail with which we tracked our progress, I am going to move to a more simplified posting format. The majority of folks following this blog are simply interested in what works so, going forward, I’ll post examples of a single day for one of the three of us which hit the mark. Don’t worry, I’ll still divulge our failures and tips to avoid them but, fortunately, these are becoming increasingly rare.
Celia was the first of us to achieve what we call a “full bars” day – she met all of the daily requirements under the $10 cap – in fact, she did it under $7. Here’s what she had:
Whole Grain Crunch Cereal with Milk
Chicken Patty Sandwich and whole wheat
Celia’s tips for getting full bars:
1) Drink milk
2) Eat a vegetable at lunch
3) Two veggie for dinner doesn’t really seem like two if one is orange.
Congratulations, Celia! For the record, I was one glass of milk shy of matching Celia's full bars. It's on little girl - oh, it's on!
