Well... it is time to focus and work harder at making good choices when it comes to food. I need healing food. So... that is what I am attempting to do. Monday - I had a green smoothie with apple, pear, spinach, cucumber, etc; a smoothie with strawberries, avocado, pea protein powder, and a banana;… Continue reading at it again… well at least i’m trying
Okay. Time to get serious about taking pictures of all my food intake... again. My last doctor visit proved that my weight hasn't changed in a year and my blood pressure is not improving. It is very discouraging. I guess I should expect it because I have not been hard core Dr Fuhrman diet style.… Continue reading Reality Check
Restarting my commitment today. You see... the production of Mamma Mia consumed my life. I was luck to get energy for something, sometime during the day. I didn't exactly go crazy. I just wasn't as mindful as I should have been, and had been in past year. I still was eating a plant based diet. … Continue reading Starting Again

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

However, struggle to be as strict with the "rules" of Eat to Live due to my lack of time. I struggle to find time to prep my foods and I struggle… Continue reading Pushing Forward
Ending My Summer, but Keeping Plant Power!
Okay... I really need to make more time for food. Today I had trouble finding the time to make and eat food. So much to do and so little time to do it! I am happy to report that I didn't cave and eat crappy food just because I was starving. Last week was a… Continue reading Ending My Summer, but Keeping 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
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?
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!
