I'm a vegetarian who can't cook well. I'm trying to learn how to cook, eat a healthy diet, eat less chocolate and lose weight. I'm here to find cooking ideas. I have been following Eat to Live book by Joel Furhman.

I'm finding out that when I eat mostly fruits and veggies I lose weight (I've lost over 15 pounds) and when I start eating the junk the weight comes back (hey doesn't that makes sense). And here is the best part, I'm never hungry.

I exercise 40 minutes on my elliptical, and I have been doing P90X three times a week (finished P90X and will start again sometime). I also do some exercise DVDs, lift weights and other exercise. I always need ideas for other exercise ideas.

Losing weight by eating healthy foods. Learning to cook will help.

I have been following the Eat To Live plan.

Eating lots of fruits and veggies and some beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

My Program:
Exercise 20 minutes a day on the elliptical and 20-30 minutes with DVD cadio exercises. I also lift weights with exercise DVD's and other exercise.

Scifi and action adventure movies are my favorite movies to go see.
Reading books is very fun and exiciting. It's takes me away from it all. I like scifi, action adventure and fantasy books the best.

    Thank you for reading my blog! I am feeling better, thank you. Talking to friends and folks on here, there's a lot of illnesses going around of late. I'm glad it was just vertigo and a headache!!

    Thank you for reading my blog, "bummer." It only takes one day of missing the log in and poof!!! Your streak has vanished. It can be restarted. Sorry you lost your streak because of internet problems. I will work toward another streak even longer the next time!

    Have a great day!

    Thanks for your comment on my blog. Regarding the jicama, I made sure it wasn't a small one and left it whole. The "noodles" were not strong like the sweet potato and kohlrabi but did make noodles. I had to cut them since I was doing a salad so it was no problem. Took less time than cutting match sticks for the salad. I like jicama but it really needs to paired with fruit.
