at it again… well at least i’m trying

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

Reality Check

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

Working to Keep My Head Above Water

My life is a bit out of control.  I am rarely home, and I am struggling to keep my plant-based diet a healthy plant-based diet.  All too often, it takes a lot of prep work (time), and eating time to make a plant-based diet a success. Not only that, most of the people living in… Continue reading Working to Keep My Head Above Water

Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

I am working on "wealth."  Health seems to be ever elusive.  I do know that it's all in my choices.  I was all set to eat more salads and then the Romaine lettuce scare took all the lettuce and pre-chopped salads out of the stores.  It makes it real hard to eat a salad a… Continue reading Healthy, Wealthy, and Wise… in Progress

Lacking in Progress

Don't I know it!  I was sick last week... a cold.  Said cold came with a fever and chills.  I really wasn't interest in making food, but I did.  It wasn't all the best choices, but hey, I tried. Monday I ate some of the left over black bean soup that is more like dip… Continue reading Lacking in Progress

Okay... it's been two weeks since I posted my food choices on my blog.  Last Monday I was  little busy driving home from my weekend away.  Thus, the blog was ignored on Monday. These were my choices a couple of Mondays ago.  I had a nice fruit shake and some crackers for lunch and a… Continue reading two weeks in one post

Starting Again

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

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


Cajun Vegan Sausage, Potatoes and Green Beans

Ingredients 3/4 c veggie broth 1 pkg vegan sausages 1 1/2 pound potatoes 1 1/2… Continue reading Cajun Vegan Sausage, Potatoes and Green Beans
