Love Yourself to a Healthy Lifestyle

Okay... the week has been a wild ride and I didn't get a picture of every meal.  But I have stayed within a plant powered lifestyle... I've just had more restaurant food then I would regularly want to consume.  It happens when I rarely come home.  With the show opening, I had so much to… Continue reading Love Yourself to a Healthy Lifestyle

I discovered over the past few weeks that I am lacking a variety of colors in my plant foods. As I look at the pictures of the foods I ate over the past couple of weeks, I am seeing a trend toward a bland pallet. I should changing things up in the coming weeks. However,… Continue reading E

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!

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

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

My End of Dieting

So... my fall last week broke the camera on my phone. I am now left with nothing to visually record my success and meals, at least for further notice. I can say that I have been good about eating salads for lunch and something veggie like for dinner. It was a busy week, so I… Continue reading My End of Dieting
