Challenge Week 1 Day 1

So, I did not get a chance to go grocery shopping for my challenge for two reasons. My fridge needed to be defrosted and I could not locate the Mesa Farmers Market. Here, in Arizona they have many little Farmers Markets that can be hard to locate. Saturday morning I will head out to the Phoenix Farmers Market for the first time. I'm still making out my list and will post it soon.

I had frozen fruit in my fridge I will be using for smoothies and shakes. For the next couple of days my meals will be made from whatever I have left in my fridge.
