I completed the challenge. Wow! What a journey the last three weeks has been. I have really kicked my pasta/bread habit in a big way. If I eat either once a day that is a big deal for me. It has been by comfort food for several years now and I am happy to be done with it.
What I really loved from this challenge has been the workouts. They are really intense and pushed me to my limits many times over the last few weeks.

Adding these foods to your diet will strengthen both the immune system as well as the digestive system, our first defenses against illness.
Fermented foods are nutrient dense but most importantly they contain living probiotics. Our digestive system battles an onslaught of environmental pollutants daily. Probiotics help to rid the body of these pollutants and simultaneously repopulate our digestive system with beneficial bacteria to improve the absorption of vitamins and minerals into the body.
