Keeping it Healthy… almost?

Monday plant eating opened with some of the best black berries I have ever eaten. I got them at the farmer's market. I think they called them triple berries. Whatever they are called, they were so juicy and sweet. I ate 2 boxes. That led to my down fall of eating a few potato chips.… Continue reading Keeping it Healthy… almost?

Menu Monday

I am enjoying all the fresh fruits and veggies that are available.  Cherries are some of my favorites!  On Monday I enjoyed cherries and a veggie burrito.  Then, I enjoyed a great salad with a Mexican twist. On Tuesday I ate the leftovers of the marinara sauce full of shredded zucchini from my garden and… Continue reading

Bombed that Week!

OKay... my busy week got away from me.  I did not make the wisest choices.  I ate potato chips more than once and I ate some onion rings.  Here's the thing... my husband was gone on business all week and I didn't have time to shop or to prep.  On potato chip day, it was… Continue reading Bombed that Week!

Struggling to Keep the Plants Healthy Plant Food

Snap!  It is hard to keep up good eating habits when I am NEVER home!  As a result I end up grabbing things I know are not the most helpful.  But I do what I can and sadly, feel frustrated that I don't have time for better choices. Monday I ate a lasagna I made… Continue reading Struggling to Keep the Plants Healthy Plant Food

Veggie Life on the Run

It's been a good week of eating a plant based diet. The thing is, the garden, the farmer's market and the farmer's co-op makes it so easy! The only real complication is time... time to prepare and time to chew. It seriously takes more time to chew fresh, raw plants, then it does to chew… Continue reading Veggie Life on the Run

Back to Picture Journaling My Food.

I am so excited my husband was able to fix the camera on my iPhone.  Now I can take pictures of my food and truly report what it is I am consuming.  I haven't gotten on a scale, but the most exciting thing happened today.  I put on some shorts I haven't worn for a… Continue reading Back to Picture Journaling My Food.

Plant Power

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… Continue reading Plant Power

Lovin’ the Farmer’s Market

Okay... still no camera.  I can't record my meals.  However, I am still doing well enough.  Still eating salads.  Still eating fruits.  My favorites are the strawberries and raspberries from my own garden.  I've done better with reducing pastas and breads this week.  Dairy is still reasonable.  I only had a light Greek yogurt here… Continue reading Lovin’ the Farmer’s Market

This is Not a Diet

Sadly, there is still no camera to record my eating and to keep me in check.  On the up side, I have succeeded in continuing to eat a plant based diet.  I did have one exception this past week when I went to dinner with my good friend.  I ate Eggplant Parmesan.  It was the… Continue reading This is Not a Diet

Not the Wisest Choices

I am still unable to take a picture and record what I ate.  I have also found that a small lack in accountability has given me licence to "cheat."  For example, we went to the Tillamook cheese factory and bought my daughter squeaky cheese.  I love squeaky cheese.  I ate some.  I did pay for… Continue reading Not the Wisest Choices
