#6IngredientChallenge: Easiest & Most Difficult Parts

Six Ingredient Challenge buttonJoin the Six Ingredient Challenge hosted by Hobo Mama and Anktangle!

We're on a six-week path to eat more whole foods, guided by one simple rule: Buy foods with six ingredients or fewer. And we're blogging about our journey on the way.

This week we're answering the question: What has been the easiest part of this challenge for you so far? The most difficult part?

You can see all the responses to this question today at this link-up post at Hobo Mama and Anktangle.

My answer:


So far the easiest part of the challenge—and this really surprised me!—has been cooking everything at home. As long as I have a meal plan outlined for the week, it's been pretty easy for me to plan everything slightly in advance and have it on the table at dinnertime. Next Monday, I'll be sharing a sample week meal plan, complete with recipes for things you might not know how to make already, so check back then!

The hardest part of the challenge for me so far has been being creative about snack foods. Sometimes I just want cheese and crackers and I don't always want to have to make gluten-free crackers myself. To help with the snack conundrum, I've been largely focusing on protein (peanut butter, hummus, beans, cheese, nuts, yogurt) and vegetables (sugar snap peas, carrots, celery) when I feel the need for a snack. It's been a workable solution, but I could still use more ideas for quick and satisfying snack foods.  

Do you have any tips or suggestions for me?




We hope you'll join us by blogging or journaling about the writing prompt each week. We'll introduce the prompt each Thursday and host a link-up for the answers the following week.
