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

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

Pushing Forward

I continue down the path of incorporating life-enhancing, delicious, plant power foods into my diet.  I continue to significantly cut back on animal products.  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

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

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
