Ok got through my first week, of my new lifestyle changes. (now if I could only get up off my dead butt)
It's pretty hard to do. Trying to find protein, sucks. Especially being on a 1200 cal guideline. I am seeing the sodium, and the cholesterol go down YAYYYYY!!!!! But I am trading it for more carbs. Which isn't bad because I was just barely getting those in before, when I was still eating chicken. I now am higher with the carbs, and still within my nutritional guidelines.
I am looking into some vegetarian recipes. I do have a good catalog of books, I have collected over the years, and I am looking thru them for some nutritional advice, for a novice Vege. (did do it for 3 years, some time ago. But didn't realize how high in sodium, seaweed has in it.) So pulled away from it. But now I have new horizons. I don't want to be a part of the cruel treatment of our farm animals, so I opted to not partake in eating them. I don't think we should anyway. I know in my heart, God intended for us to eat fruits and vegetables. Jury is still out on that. Most all animals give, either in milk, eggs and or cheese, I think that is why they were put here, not to kill, and eat them, and some are just plain not edible! Like the Elephant or lion. I am beginning to think things like Mad Cow disease, is a flare, in the course of treatment, and the antibiotics and steroids being fed to them. I am gaining knowledge more and more, and of course I have my own assumptions, which are just that, assumptions.
