Heal Your Pantry! Heal Your Life!

Heal your pantry, heal your life

Welcome to our very first cooking challenge.

We hope you are ready to heal your life as you heal your pantry! That is a big claim, but we are pretty sure you will see a change in how you approach your life this year if you commit to finishing the challenges we set you daily. It is not difficult. And we give you the weekend off in the middle to play catch up!

We officially start on February 10th but there are things you will need to do prior to that to be ready. Ten weekdays, a recipe or two per day to help your pantry be additive free! So sign up with a friend (for moral support) and get ready for some healthy changes!




We are excited to begin the challenge but there are a few things to do first!
