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: How is the Six Ingredient Challenge going for you so far?

I'm not thrilled with our progress so far, but I'm not crushed, either. I was giving myself some room for forgiveness, especially since half my family is not on board. I have, however, avoided buying any grocery items with 6+ ingredients.
I tried to make Lasagna Roll Ups one night... I had accidentally bought noodles you don't have to precook... but you have to boil them to make them soft enough to roll. And then there was a commotion I had to tend to... for a good 20 minutes. The noodles all fused together in the pot. They were ruined. I couldn't use them at all. I grabbed some penne pasta I had and then noticed... the lasagna had 6 ingredients, the penne had 7.
I was already crushed about my mess of a dinner, I was fine letting the extra ingredient issue go. So... we're cruising along casually with the challenge.
Have you had any Six Ingredient Meal Mishaps?
Have you bought any 6+ ingredient items by mistake?
