Let’s let the pictures do the talking, shall we? They’re much more fun to look at than text, even if they are from my iphone!
1. Breakfast rocks.
(Oats soaked overnight in water and yogurt. Added in the morning: 1/2 banana, almonds, carob chips, apricot preserves, and cinnamon.)
Scrambled egg whites with NOOCH, onions, mushrooms + toast with strawberry preserves + yogurt, 1/2 banana, grapes, and a sprinkling each of vanilla protein powder, raw oatmeal, cinnamon, and stevia. Seems like a lot, right? That’s what you get to enjoy when you get the hang of portion control!
2.I’m good at making different meals with pretty much the same veggies.
Mix of tofu, quinoa, black beans, zucchini, red pepper, and onions served over salad.
Quinoa, onions, bell peppers, zucchini, broccoli, vegan hot dog, curry powder.
Scrambled egg white with bell peppers, banana peppers (banana peppers + eggs = foodgasm), black beans, onions. Stuff it all into a pita with spinach, quacamole, and salsa!
Shirataki noodles, vegan cheese, tomato sauce, onions, zucchini, basil. YUMM.
3. Salads, salad, salad…
Salads are even better with NOOCH, Annie Chun’s Seaweed Snacks, and Bragg’s Liquid Aminos!
Looking back over my meals, I realize that I eat a lot of things that my “old self” would consider to be very strange. Nooch, sriracha, shirataki, seaweed, Bragg’s, carob, quinoa? Does anybody have any questions?
By the way, stay tuned (and tell your friends about my blog) because I’ve got some big posts coming up in the next few days in the form of a six-part “Ode to the Gym.” I’m going to discuss things such as the pros and cons of joining, how to find the right gym, classes I love, and how to feel comfortable when you’re a new member. First part comes tomorrow morning!
Have a good night…I’m going for a swim!
