Veggies and more veggies

It's been a good week for veggie eating.

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?

Warrior Wednesday

I am a Warrior not a Worrier

So many things going on in life that keep my mind spinning.  Worries.... Today I needed a good reminder...

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

Having Willpower

Something I have heard nearly all my life is that fat people don't have the willpower to loose weight.  Fat people would be skinny people if they exercised willpower.  Well... you are are wrong.  I have a great amount of willpower.  I work hard.  I will myself through days that most people couldn't even begin… Continue reading Having Willpower

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.

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
