40 Days of Sunshine Challenge-solar foods

It’s valentines day and I’m about to begin the 40 days of sunshine journey.

I’m nervous and I’m excited. This is going to be a real challenge, a great way to disrupt patterns of living and eating, and a solid dose of learning. I’m pretty committed to this effort, despite the grim outlook of overcast weather. I really want to see if this is possible and what sacrifices and freedoms will come my way.

I’m lucky to be in good health and have all the support I could ever ask for. The GoSun community has weighed in with lots of advice and encouragement. I’m feeling strong and I have a loose plan for keeping my body fueled as I head out for a big road trip to kick off 40 Days of Sunshine.

As it is Valentines, my girlfriend is going to get a nice home cooked meal tonight, along with desert and drinks and then….. it’s on. 40 days, eating foods only cooked with the Sun. Will I succeed? Will I maintain my high pace and positive outlook? Stay tuned and enjoy your valentines.
