SNAP Challenge Day 3

Print Friendly

Not much new here for day 3. I was still feeling pretty lousy about the whole thing, especially since I needed ANOTHER gallon of milk today. The baby was quite ill this week and while she wasn’t eating much table food she was drinking a lot of bottles.

Physically I feel a little uh…how do I put this delicately? Stopped up. My digestive system has always been very responsive to the foods I eat, and I’m feeling the lack of fresh veggies for sure. I attempted to remedy that today.

I’m not listing beverages or ingredients anymore unless I have to buy them that day.
