Struggling to Eat Healthy with a Busy Schedule

I started the week doing a decent job recording my meals via a photo.  Then.... it all fell apart.  Got too busy with getting the show ready for tech.  As tech neared I found it harder and harder to get meals, let alone, take a picture.  All I can say is, I did my best… Continue reading Struggling to Eat Healthy with a Busy Schedule

Powered by Plant for One More Week

The hardest thing about trying to follow Dr. Joel Fuhrman's Eat to Live lifestyle is feeding my family.  No one really wants to eat the amount of plants I eat, nor do they save out the things I would usually eat for my food.  I can't seem to find a balance of foods I will… Continue reading Powered by Plant for One More Week

Wrapping up September with Plant Power

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… Continue reading Wrapping up September with Plant Power

Veggies and more veggies

It's been a good week for veggie eating. Monday I had a dentist appointment and my face was numb for half the day.  Jamba Juice to the rescue!  I had a Greens with added ginger smoothie.  When my face woke up I had a veggie dog... plain.  Dinner was a cabbage from the garden with… Continue reading Veggies and more veggies

Food on the Road

It is harder than you think to get a normal veggie meals when you are not in your own house.  I spent the week visiting my daughter.  She did her best to provide meals that had veggie options.  It just wasn't my normal menu.  And I didn't get normal pictures either... so this is the… Continue reading Food on the Road

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?

On Tuesday I ate the leftovers of the marinara sauce full of shredded zucchini from my garden and… Continue reading
