|I still prefer the term "Whole Foods Plants Based Diet" over Vegan.|
You can be Vegan or Vegetarian and still have a crap diet
filled with processed foods.
Wow, day 30 is here! Like recovery, I've been taking this one day at a time, trying not to plan too far into the future as to not be discouraged, but my original goal was to try 30 days and assess how I feel. And you know what? I feel pretty damn good! Giving up meat was actually pretty easy. Giving up dairy was quite a bit more difficult, but I no longer crave that either. Giving up chocolate cake and oreo Blizzards might be the toughest. There will probably be a vegan chocolate cake recipe, like this, coming very soon.
What is probably the most difficult is giving up convenience, because eating a whole foods plant based diet is more work. It just is. But great things are not great because they are easy. You have to work for them.
I read that the average person only eats about eight different meals on average, varying it a bit here and there. That seems to be the case with me, before I changed my diet and now after. Back on Day 1, I made something I called "Mexican Toast." I hadn't revisted it since, so I thought I'd try it with a new twist.
|Mexican Toast with a New Twist|
- Two slices of Ezekial Bread
- 1 Avocado
- Lime juice
- 1/2 can of low sodium black beans
- Salsa of your choice
- Daiya chedder cheese
My next posts won't be coming with quite the ferocious tempo, but they'll still be coming. Until then, I leave you with this. It's a little different than the food pyramid that the meat and dairy industry has lobbied to teach our kids and culture as a whole.
|I like that there's some sunshine in this one too ;)|
