Today was one of those days that should have been good but wasn't. Nothing catastrophic, just the kind of day when you're being eaten alive by ants. I did meet one of my goals for this week though. (OK - I admit it, it was one of my goals for last week but it got carried over to this one.) I made veggie soup in the Vitamix. It was surprisingly good despite it's spectacular impersonation of green ooze. I had some at lunch along with a slice of spelt bread and peanut butter for protein.
It is part of my larger goal of eating more veggies ala Eat to Live (but my own more moderate version). I've had two people lately swear to me that my life will dramatically change, I will lose 60 pounds like magic and will never get sick again if I only do the Eat to Live diet. I obviously looked into it and think it is good enough to start to follow (even if I am doing it by baby steps) but I reject the more outlandish claims. For one thing, the person who told me that she will never be sick again because of following the diet has been in bed for a week with a horrible cold.
