Today is the day!

The following list is a recommendation of food items to AVOID during the 30 Day Challenge and those which you should lean toward instead. The KEY WORD is RECOMMENDATIONS. That means foods to consciously think about when you are making your meal selection. It DOES NOT mean, never ever touch these foods again.

In fact, some of the recipes I will be adding them will have items from the DO NOT eat list. For those who want to avoid them ENTIRELY, use the list to the right as a substitute food item.

REMOVE from your diet!


  • Pasta
  • White Rice
  • Bread
  • Cereal


  • Milk
  • Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Butter


  • Boxed and Packaged food
  • Pre-manufactured food
  • Fast food
  • Frozen dinners

REPLACE with these!


  • Brown Rice
  • Quinoa
  • Amaranth
  • Brown Rice Pasta
  • Spaghetti Squash


  • Almond milk
  • Rice milk
  • Coconut milk
  • Nutritional yeast


  • Locally grown, seasonally available fruits and veggies
  • Free-range, grass-fed, hormone-free meats

These recipes ARE NOT my own. I have been surfing the internet for recipes that adhere to the 30 Days to Healthy Living guidelines. This one I discovered from a great blogger Two Peas and their Pod.

This recipe calls for feta cheese. For those who DO NOT want to sprinkle with feta cheese – you can opt for vegan feta.
