Week two of Lorna Jane and Sweat Pink’s “Move, Nourish, Believe Challenge” is already complete! I really can’t believe how quickly time has gone by.
During the first week, participants focused on “Move,” with a variety of physical challenges. This week our Nourish challenges were:
- Monday– Go Meatless. Try vegetarian or vegan meals.
- Tuesday– Take Your Lunch to Work Today. Choose a recipe from movenourishbelieve.com to inspire your packed lunch.
- Wednesday– Write it Down. Keep a food journal today.
- Thursday– Smoothie Day. Make a healthy smoothie.
- Friday– Go Raw Today. Choose a recipe from Movenourishbelieve.com and go raw.
Here’s my photo recap of the week:
Meatless Monday was actually really easy for me. I don’t eat a lot of meat, for both health and budget reasons. Don’t get me wrong, I think there’s plenty of nutritional benefits from lean meats and fish, but it’s easy for me to go overboard. We had quinoa burgers, potato/veggie stir fry, lentils, yogurt, and fruit.
As a Stay-At-Home-Mom, every day is a take your lunch to work day. Coincidentally, it was another meatless meal on Tuesday! We had mini veggie pizzas.
Wednesday I just filled out MyFitnessPal is usual. Again, that was part of my normal routine. Easy peasy!
On Thursday I made a delicious, healthy smoothie for Baby J and I as an after-dinner treat. I used plain Greek yogurt, honey, frozen berries, bananas, whole milk, and natural peanut butter. Packed full of nutrition and filling.
Friday wrapped up the week with raw foods. I had plenty of fresh carrots, celery, chick peas, arugula, almonds, peanuts, apples, and cucumbers to go around. Fiber’s always a good thing, right? ðŸ™‚

Have a happy weekend!
I like to make a couple of meatless meals every week too. We make smoothies almost everyday, but what you do that I don’t (and probably should) is keep a food journal. That is next on my healthy to do list.
Hi Kim, MyFitnessPal is super easy to use! I have it on my iPhone, iPad, and laptop. Lose It! is also a popular food diary app, but I haven’t spent much time figuring that one out.
Those veggie pizzas look good! I need to get myself back on track!
I think this is wonderful place for those of us struggling to keep on track to come together for fitness and health. thanks!
What great, healthy meals! ~ Kimberly
Wow–a meatless monday–now that would be a challenge in my house–but you’ve got some good ideas–thanks for sharing–will have to think about it
Looks like a great challenge. Wish I would have started it.
The Meatless Pizza Looks Delicious I’ll Have To try!!
That looks like a fun challenge, and awww to your sweetie w/a smoothie picture. I never thought to use Greek Yogurt in a smoothie, but of course that’s the perfect base!
Wow that is awesome and the foods are really pleasing to the eyes and for sure kids would really love it. ðŸ™‚
Hi Kenneth, yes, my son definitely loved eating everything!
I need to try more meatless meals. My husband loves meat, and it’s just become natural to include it in nearly every meal.
Hi Amanda, my hubby is the same way, but it helps when I point out the money we save by eating less meat.
