Veg Bad Challenge of 2017



About five years ago, I did our first Veg Bad challenge on the blog. I really helped my family increase the number of veggies we eat on a regular basis. What's the deal with the strange name? Well, it just so happened to coincide with Wallace and Gromit's The Curse of the Wererabbit, in which Wallace tried to pump the thought "Veg Bad" into the minds of rabbits so that they would stop eating the local gardens. I loved the idea of veg bad so much, the challenge was born! So for the next 90 days, I am taking the Veg Bad Challenge, if you'd like to go along with me, here are the original guidelines!

  Who out there is willing to join me in The Veg Bad Challenge?  Here are the guidelines:

1. Commit to increasing the amount of vegetables that you are currently eating over the next 90 days. (Hey if you aren't eating any, then one will be an increase, right?)

2. Invite your family to join in with you because it's more fun with company and you won't be able to torture yourself with an infinite amount of beet salad and other unusual dishes while your family gets away with calling french fries and ketchup a veg.

3.  Once a week, post a veg recipe that you've made that your family enjoyed.  Vegetables need to be the main ingredient, so no tofu or bean recipes, please.  Though I must say vegetables covered in other things like cheese is totally acceptable.  Feel free to share the dishes that you served along side the successful veg dish.

4.  If you are met with heartache over every veg dish you serve in a week, post the one that was met with the most complaining and warn the rest of us never to serve it.

 You will be able to follow along on my Facebook page and share your recipes there on a weekly post! I can't wait to see what veg you add to your meals!

Oh and before I forget the best part, everyone who takes the challenge will be entered to win a copy of

    1. The first time we did this, we were not eating very many vegetables at all. I'm hoping this time will up the intake again. :)

The Bottom of the Pool by Andy Andrews

Y'all know that I'm a big Andy Andrews fan, so I was very excited to read his latest, The Bottom of the Pool. The best way that I can describe this book is like sitting down with your friend and they remind you how it is. It's not like Andy is hawking some secret voodoo send me $5 and you'll get $5000 in the mail next week black magic. He's sharing the truth. And the truth is that if you're dealing with an obstacle in your life, there's a big possibility that you're thinking about it all wrong.

This relatively quick read is jam-packed full of good stuff. There are interesting stories about historical figures but the main story that runs throughout the book is one of a childhood friend. Andy's friend did something extraordinary one summer afternoon that illustrates how we can break out of cycles hold us back from achieving what we are created to do. Without telling you exactly what Andy has to share in this book, it might feel like it's some mag…

Saturday Rant: Dominoes

I always find it interesting how life can be very much so like dominoes sometimes. Let's see, my husband went out of town this last fall. I volunteered to preach for him while he was gone. I told a friend about the online copy of the sermon. She forwarded it to a few folks, next thing you know, I'm doing a short testimony at my weekly Bible study. What I'm really wondering it "What next?"

You see, when I got done preaching, and my husband came back into town, we talked about how people reacted to the sermon. Then we talked some more when I was asked to share again. And the question was, maybe I'm supposed to be open to talking more often.

To be honest, I haven't done a lot of talking in groups since I had a really bad experience a few years ago. I was always opinionated, in fact I still am. I have lots of opinions about most everything from how warm my house should be to which way the car should take me from point a to b. But I found myself in a group of …

The Minimalist Home by Joshua Becker

I've been following Joshua Becker's blog for a few years and have read all the things and even put them into action. I was excited to be able to read his room-by-room guide for minimizing your home.

The Minimalist Home systematically goes through every space in your home, including the garage and yard, and talks about how to minimize them. Becker has put thought into which spaces should happen first for the biggest impact and encouragement. Because even though it's wonderful to have a minimalist garage, it may not be the best place to start and get the whole house done.

Our home has been trending towards minimalist in nature for a while now. And I'm happy to share with you that this little book helped us take a few more steps in the minimal direction. I loved all the checklists for the different areas. As well as the facts about living space and stuff consumption sprinkled throughout.  The Notes section is full of great resources for further reading as well.
