Official HH30Days Challenge Rules

Hometown Harvest 30-Day Real Food ChallengeWhen: May 1-May 30

What: Challenge participants will eat whole, natural, and local foods according to the below lists for 30 days. See for more information.

Who: Everyone! 

Why: Studies have shown that overly processed foods are bad for our health and the health of our planet. Eating a diet that is more natural and locally grown is good for the body, the local economy, and our planet!

"YES" Foods:

      • Whole foods that are more a product of nature than a product of industry
      • Lots of fruits and vegetables
      • Dairy products like milk, yogurt, eggs, and cheese
      • 100% whole-wheat and whole-grains (check the Understanding Grains post for more info: our Spring Mill sandwich breads fit the bill!)
      • Seafood (Wild caught is preferred...try our Alaskan Salmon!)
      • Only locally raised meats such as pork, beef, and chicken (preferably in moderation)
      • Beverages limited to water, milk, all natural juices, naturally sweetened coffee & tea, and, to help the adults keep their sanity, wine and beer!
      • Snacks like dried fruit, seeds, nuts and popcorn

"NO" Foods:

  • No refined grains such as white flour or white rice (items containing wheat must say WHOLE wheat…not just “wheat”)
  • No refined sweeteners such as sugar, any form of corn syrup, cane juice, or the artificial stuff like Splenda
  • Nothing out of a box, can, bag, bottle or package that has more than 5 whole-food ingredients listed on the label
  • No deep fried foods
  • No “fast foods”
  • Also check out 100 Days Recipes & Resources page for a more detailed list of meal options including links to recipes.
