I didn't even think about it until after I ate a couple slices. I had big plans use my freshly concocted broth to make a delicious soup for dinner. Dinner, for us, is usually at 5:30 or 6. My husband called me at 3pm to tell me he'd be home in 20 minutes, and that he was not feeling well, and that he was bringing home pizza because he was famished and didn't want to wait until 5. "That's fine," I said, kinda planning to go ahead with my dinner plans anyway. Then, of course, my husband and children filled up on pizza, and expending my energy cooking for just me seemed silly. So I ate. My hesitancy to want to eat "Gourmet Pizza" had more to do with knowing how dissatisfying it would taste (my being spoiled with whole and organic foods now), and not needing any extra pounds in my third trimester. Only when I finished and started thinking about the rest of my evening did I even remember the unprocessed challenge. Let me just be honest - I'm not good at goal setting. I could blame my pregnancy brain, but I think it's just me.
Breakfast, lunch, and birthday brownies were all a success. Lunch consisted of our good broth with coconut milk, which my kids greedily gulped down and I think my mother even enjoyed.

In other news, my nuts finished dehydrating and there are plenty of brownies leftover, which should make for easy and unprocessed snacking for the next week.
