I was totally unaware that I was eating faux food. That "packaged processed" was what I thought was normal. Ah the marketing hype that I believed. They just want my money... not what is good for me. So buying real food may cost a bit more but not so much, because it is balanced out by not buying junk food and soda.
We all have recipes that we fall back on so I plan to expand my collection of new
Jan 1st begins PCRM’s 21-Day Vegan Kickstart.
I just noticed that it will repeat the 1st of every month. Woo Hoo! Repetition is a good thing for me. After decades of faux foods, it will take practice to instill the healthier way to eat.
In March, I believe my local Whole Foods Market will be doing the 28 day Engine 2 challenge. (There may be stuff online.) I know that a E2 food line came out, so there are is a variety of E2 fat free hummus and other ready made health options available. I've been making Rip's big bowl on my own. I imagine he probably put out his cereal. Through this program I learned that I can find and make tasty healthy fare. A couple of my fav's are
Mac and Not Cheese (used to make my own so switching was easy)
and E2 French Toast
Did I like all the recipes... of course not, but I gave them a try (and vowed not to make them again)
Do I intend to be totally vegan permanently, probably not. But it is the way to learn new recipes and move toward a healthier eating.
This cheese lover thought that she could not go without dairy. Well I was so wrong. Making the commitment for the term of the program helped change my palate and made me realize I could live without dairy.
I'm looking forward to finding new GO TO recipes.
