Halfway Through HH28! Your Meal Ideas and Successes So Far

Posted by: Lindsay S. Nixon |

Well Herbies, we're a little over halfway through HH28! I hope you are enjoying the challenge so far and are learning a lot about your eating habits. I have LOVED seeing all of your posts and photos on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram (search for hashtag #HH28 for inspiration!). We also have more than a dozen bloggers participating and sharing their experiences. Today, we're sharing some of your excellent meal ideas and the benefits you've experienced so far!


HH28 participants have been getting creative in the kitchen, preparing simple and colorful delicious-looking meals (many with help from the meal plans or 3-Day Reboot and 10-Day Cleanse & Immersion!). As I always say, when good goes in, glow comes out. You have reported weight loss, improved skin, better sleep, feeling lighter and stronger, and making better choices about food
