Weighted down

Weighted down

I almost signed up for Nutrisystem yesterday. Luckily my mom called and I asked her what she thought before I push the button to purchase. She talked me out of it and she made extremely good sense as to why it was pointless. Purchasing pre-portioned, vacuum sealed, preservative induced foods against what I eat normally was extremely dumb.  I eat fresh foods. I make meals from scratch. I don’t eat anything that has been processed. I read labels all…

Lemon & Garlic Wild Rice Soup from Simplyquinoa.com

Lemon & Garlic Wild Rice Soup from Simplyquinoa.com

This is another great vegan soup recipe I found at https://www.simplyquinoa.com/lemon-garlic-wild-rice-soup/. Simply Quinoa is an amazing website created to empower others into a healthy lifestyle. I could spend hours there looking at recipes and articles. Check it out. https://www.simplyquinoa.com/ I changed the grain in this soup to a more healthy grain. I used wheat berry. This caused a lot of the liquid to be absorbed and because of that I only got a quart of the soup. I may try…

Becoming non-vegan

Becoming non-vegan

Everyone around me seemed to take a deep breath now that I’m not fully vegan anymore. On Thanksgiving I let a couple of things slide, but the only things I really added to my diet is fish, low-fat ground turkey and chicken. I pulled out all rice. I’m sticking to quinoa or bulgur or the lower calorie higher fiber grains as per weight watchers.  Other than that change, I’m still making my vegan recipes. I still try to keep the…

Jamie raw and uncut the sequel

Jamie raw and uncut the sequel

It’s still me. Hope everyone is having a beautiful day. I must say the first  day of my intention to lose weight had a caramel popcorn hiccup but we got through it, or finished that bag, but moving on. I got food shopping done so I’m ready to cook which you must do if you’re vegan. I stated to the universe my intention and now I ask the universe to have my back, guiding me to my goal. I said…

I am protesting the Veggie Burger

I am protesting the Veggie Burger

The only thing I miss, being a vegetarian, is a really good hamburger. Maybe we could throw on some cheese and bacon with that. Slap on a little ketchup. Some really burnt french fries.  I mean if you’re going to go there, might as well go there right. I really don’t miss meat. I’ve had no problem giving it up. I’ve been a vegetarian now since December 2, and except for an occasional dairy product (like 1\2 & 1\2 in my coffee), I…

Vegan thousand island dressing in my aerogarden salad

Vegan thousand island dressing in my aerogarden salad

I had a dream last night I ate a chicken sandwich. Of all the animal products I stopped eating, chicken is the least missed. I hate chicken. I’ve lived my whole life on a diet and chicken or fish were always the lowest calorie protein. Chicken was the least expensive. I’ve had enough of chicken. I even worked in chicken restaurants, Boston Market, and Ranch 1. I hate chicken. If I was going to eat something, let it be a…

Super Bowl Sunday Vegan recipes

Super Bowl Sunday Vegan recipes

I have yet to master eating out or going to someone else’s home since becoming vegan. When I say master I really should say try. I’ve dined out maybe 3 times in the last 2 months and my meal consisted of a salad and a vegetable side. I normally try to eat something first so I am not that hungry when I go. When I’ve gone to a friends house I don’t eat there at all. Tonight is Super Bowl…

Plant based diet week 3

Plant based diet week 3

I guess I can talk about my week review of my plant based diet eating. I told you my week in week two wasn’t the greatest week. I wasn’t exactly prepared. I ate a lot of meals from Veestro which were high in fat but it sticks to the plan. When I went away to my sisters for the holiday it actually was harder than I expected. Since we ate out two different nights, It was tough to be vegan….

My second week Vegan/plant-based

My second week Vegan/plant-based

First I’m happy to report I lost a pound. Second I still have no craving for meat. I’ve also been doing pretty good with my coffee. I haven’t really been missing my half and half with my coconut milk/almond milk blend. I use a brown sugar/truvia sugar blend in my coffee for a sweetener and it all flows nicely. I even throw in a cap of mirolax sometimes. I learned that Veestro who has those prepared plant based diet foods http://Www.veestro.com does…
