The challenge officially starts tomorrow, we had a great little impromptu get together last night at a neighbors house where we shared a couple of challenge friendly meals and answered questions people had. It was a great group of people and they are excited about getting started.
A few last reminders as we head into the next 30 days
We are going to do one last push for comments. So far we have had none, although we know for certain more people are doing this challenge than any in the past. Don't feel bad, I follow about 6 blogs regularly and have left only 3 or 4 comments in my lifetime. I understand, but it really does make things more enjoyable when people are sharing recipe ideas, successes and challenges and it helps us direct our posts to individual needs. Here is a link on how to comment. If we don't get any traction with the comments we will not do check in posts, we will just sprinkle in posts throughout the week.
We will focus more on the what and the how, rather than the why, this challenge with "day in the life posts" where we will track what we do throughout the day and how we eat clean while doing it. We have a tailgate coming up on Monday, should be interesting. We hope this is helpful, but if you ever want to know the "why" let us know and we will be happy to explain.
Hope you are ready to go. Here is a link to a post about how we shop for the challenge. It has been updated to include our increasing dependence on farmers markets and better sources of meat.

Let us know if you have any last minute questions and we hope to hear from many of you in the comments.
