I continue down the path of incorporating life-enhancing, delicious, plant power foods into my diet. I continue to significantly cut back on animal products. However, struggle to be as strict with the “rules” of Eat to Live due to my lack of time. I struggle to find time to prep my foods and I struggle to find the time to eat all the yummy raw foods. It take a long time to chop and cook foods. It takes a long time to chew veggies.
Monday I had spaghetti made with the sauce I had made from fresh ingredients from my garden. That evening I made a fresh butternut squash soup. You can check out that recipe here.
On Tuesday I ate the last of my spaghetti with a little vegan cheese and a few crackers with peanut butter for lunch. I had a quick Morning Star veggie burger on bread for dinner.
On Wednesday I had a salad for lunch and a salad for dinner. I also ate a couple of my daughter’s bread sticks.
On Thursday I had hummus with veggies and Nanna. I came home late and was so tired, so for dinner I ate veggie tots and a few home made bread sticks.
Friday was a long day too. It happens when I am a sub and have rehearsal too. I had more veggies and hummus and a nut bar at lunch time. Since I didn’t get home until 8 pm, I only had the energy to eat a little. My husband had made me more veggie tots… so I ate them.
Saturday was a busy day. I worked in the morning on my set. I came home and ate a couple of veggie tots before dashing out to a wedding reception. The wedding reception had some yummy fruit and grilled veggies that I enjoyed.
On Sunday I made Ratatouille. I love this recipe. I especially love that the tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant all came from my garden. I didn’t make it look all fancy. I just chopped it all up and threw it into the Dutch oven. So it wasn’t all pretty, but it was tasty! You can view that recipe here.
I may not be the picture perfect Joel Fuhrman disciple, but I am making an effort and I am feeling so much better than I did 2 years ago. Perhaps when my current show is done I will work at being more diligent in my food prep and in following the “rules.”
