Working hard to eat healthily all of the time.

I am about to celebrate my 4 year anniversary of no meat/animal product cooking. My goal everyday is to be a 100% dietary vegan.

I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, the least sunny spot in the US four months of the year.
I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am quite ill with several auto-immune diseases, a blood disorder and Mitochondrial Disease. This severely restricts my energy level. I can't do vigorous exercise anymore but I need to keep moving even ...

I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am quite ill with several auto-immune diseases, a blood disorder and Mitochondrial Disease. This severely restricts my energy level. I can't do vigorous exercise anymore but I need to keep moving even if it is at a snails pace.

I love to try new recipes and cook several times a week in bulk amounts so I don't have to cook as often. I eat very low fat and healthy whole foods: tons of veggies, legumes, whole grains and whole fruits. I do make desserts from time to time... some days when I feel particularly low... I eat dessert twice....LOL

Over the past 3 1/2 years I have re-learned how to cook and I love my new recipes. I eat well and am happy that my diet works for me.

Hi! I saw your suggestion to someone on the vegetarian team to not add oil to their diet and the fat would fall off...to eat the fat that naturally occurs in fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains. I know this is true and appreciate your testimony. I decided that as of today I am going back to being vegan after years of vegetarian with all the dairy and oil that has made me overweight. Thanks for helping me make the decision I was already leaning towards.

Aw, thank you!! I am definitely working on it. Today I am feeling a bit uninspired though. Perhaps a signal that I have been working too hard this month as I definitely am feeling a bit burned out.

I do not miss driving in the ice and snow, but I do miss the changing seasons. It does get hot down here, but it's always sunny! Maybe one day you make it down this way!

Thanks for all your comments on the vegan sparkteam!

I see you're from Cleveland! Totally awesome! I used to live in Hudson and went to college in Akron until my husband and I moved to Florida 3 years ago.
