    It's a good day to eat a meal outside! Such a nice little reprieve from all the rain this weekend.

    Loved having lunch outside in the sunshine -- that challenge is going to be a little tougher with the weather slated for the rest of the week.

      Good luck Melissa - I am pulling for you!  Your challenges are well picked - may I suggest Trader Joe's Evaporated Cane Sugar or Safeway's Organics cane sugar?  Agave nectar is also DELICIOUS in coffee, and it doesn't make your blood sugar spike :)

      Let me know if you find a meal-planning method that you like...that's one of my challenges too!
