People still look at me funny when I say I choose not to eat meat.; that I do eat an occasional egg and have even had a little yogurt or cheese here and there. However, as a whole, I just stay away from animal products… and I feel better. My skin, hair and nails look better. Although my back is a little sore from all the heavy work I’ve been doing, my joints and muscles are doing well with the work load I am throwing at them. I can even get off the floor now, something I couldn’t do in the past, when I need to work down low. I attribute this energy I feel, and all of my improved health to my plant powered lifestyle.
Last week was a busy week. I don’t know why I always report that because busy is a norm for me. It was busy enough that prepping food didn’t happen. As a result, I ate 2 prepared salads and some bread sticks on Monday.
On Tuesday I ate a salad with a hard boiled egg for lunch. I was home rather late and my husband was kind enough to make me one of my favorites, Cucumber Tofu, for dinner.
Wednesday I had a salad for lunch and leftover butternut squash soup and some home made green salsa and chips for dinner.
Thursday was such a busy day that I only found time to eat once. oops. It was tasty though. I ate left overs of the Ratatouille I had made the week before.
Friday I had a salad for lunch. My husband came to help me at the school in the evening and brought dinner with… a vegetarian enchilada and chips and salsa from one of our favorite restaurants ( a meal with a little cheese).
On Saturday I worked most of the day at school and helping Kimber get their stuff put away. I made a super yummy Roasted Garlic and Kale Spaghetti squash. I will have to share the recipe later when I have a little more time. I also made some spaghetti with the home made sauce I canned a couple of weeks ago.
On Sunday I had some 3 bean salad and a Vegan pizza for lunch. I made a veggie frittata for dinner.
So that was my meals for the week. I am doing my best to keep it plant based. Feeding all the carnivores in my life makes it harder to make meals that are all vegetarian or vegan. Who wants to make multiple meals for every meal? But I am making an effort and that should count for something.
