a month of vegetables

Sunday, June 09, 2013

It was a month ago today I started a vegetarian diet. For a while I ate vegan, but here and there slipped. Funny thing, is I feel like I can do this diet. I dont have to cook, unless I want to, I shop every other day, so the goods are fresh, and I do not feel like I am on a "d i e t ". I have favorite standbys (kale and grapefruit for breakfast) about 5 days a week, and can often hit 1600 cals of veggies and fruits without a lot of difficulty and 40-60 grams of fiber.

1400 calories includes a bana and half avocado and I can see the difference in my nails and skin. I eat "off the menu" but the swings are smaller and I usually put the processed grains back on the store shelf. Without beef and salt, I dont crave soda, and the worst indiscretion may put me up to 1800 calories.

I keep a bar of dark chocolate in the house, and it lasts more than a week. Times have changed. I have changed. My weight loss is very slow, but steady judging by the change to the shape of my belly.

  I love my vegetarian life.
Black bean chili for dinner tonight. We joined a CSA this year and get our first veggies on Tuesday. WooHoo!

    I am so happy for you. Glad to hear you are doing so well on your vegetarian diet. I also find myself my body feels much better, when I ate lots of veggies and fruits. I am working on my vegetarian diet as well, but one day at a time.
