So we are onto Day 5 and I am really worried about the cost. We are spending so much money buying everything organic. The grass fed beef is killing us. We are going to buy a whole cow in March, but we won't be able to pick it up until March 22.
So far I feel like we are doing OK. I don't have any major positives to report. In fact my DH said that the zucchini dinner we made the other night made him gag. Ugh. The prep time for everything is a lot longer and my two year old has not eaten anything real yet. He had a handful of cashews yesterday and has eaten scrambled eggs a few times. Otherwise he just is cranky.
My four year old has willingly eaten fruit. She loves the hard boiled eggs and scrambled eggs, but getting her to branch out is also very difficult. I think that the two of them have eaten more bananas and eggs in the last week than they have in the last several months combined.
I find that most of my cravings are in my head more than a physiological response. That is a relief to me.
Also, very frustrated trying to find a way to purchase coconut milk and almond milk that won't break the bank. And organic berries. And we spent $10 on bell peppers yesterday (3 of them) because DH follows instructions to the letter and he read that we shouldn't use anything but organic bell peppers.
