Last week sometime I saw that Spark was going to be hosting a 30 day Vegan Challenge. Now it looks like it is going to be changed to a Meatless challenge. But not sure if it is going to be an official challenge as last I checked it wasn't posted in Challenge Central.
I just finished reading Eat To Live by Dr Joel Fuhrman.While I do think that he has several good points, I don't know that I buy into completely how bad he believes dairy and animal protein are for our bodies. There are several nteresting recipes in the book that I want to try out.
On my own, before I read this book and blog, I have already
been working to cut down on dairy, grains, and animal protein. I am lactose intolerant so I really should be dairy free, however, I just can't seem to give up cheese and sour cream. I don't eat much yogurt as I tend to get heartburn if I eat it several days in a row. Cheese doesn't seem to bother me as much as other foods, however, I am starting to wonder if part of my congestion after meals may be related to dairy and grains.
For March I think that I am going to work on adding more raw meals into my plan as well as reducing our meat intake.
Goals for March:
Continue with Meatless Mondays
Continue with at least 1 seafood meal per week for dinner
Continue with 1 new recipe per week goal
Eat at least 4 totally raw meals per week
Eat beans as part of a meal or as the main dish at least 4 times per week
Limit dairy consumption to 3 times per week (not quite sure how to track this... check if avoid dairy, check if eat dairy?)
Meet and exceed 300 fitness minutes again this month.
