My husband fixed my phone camera yesterday, so I will have pictures of foods next week! I am so excited! However, I did not get pictures of foods I ate last week.
I am loving eating a plant powered diet. My garden is giving me beautiful berries and lettuce. The farmer’s bounty basket is giving me beautiful cherries, lettuce, zucchini and onions. I got some beautiful apricots at the road side fruit stand.
Every day I eat a large salad for lunch. Every day I eat veggies for dinner.
I am working on better health. Sadly, everyone measures better health by the size of your body. The stress on my joints tells me that the size of my body truly is a sign of my health. However, the size of my body is not changing. I am thinking it’s because my stress level is still too high. Still, I know that I feel better… I just wish I looked better.
I still love eating veggies. I know that eating fresh, raw, green veggies is my biggest weapon in losing weight and restoring my health. My goal is 1 pound of salad a day. I attempt to stuff myself with raw veggies before anything else. My next goal is to eat nearly a pound of cooked veggies a day… including onions and mushrooms. In the summer time I am too hot for soups, but soups are my favorite way to get these cooked veggies. I also like stir fries with veggies and tofu.
Now, most people I know feel like I am depriving myself. However, over the past year I have learned that I am not depriving. I am thriving!
To plant power!
