Hi I just read Eat to Live. I recently decided to go vegan & had begun making the transition before reading the book. A few areas I still need to tweak. My biggest issue is eating that amount of food! Anyway, my question is how do you measure your veggies to make sure you get enough? Do I need to get a food scale? Right now I just use measuring cups.
Right now I have
a banana for breakfast,
2-3 cups of romaine lettuce with chopped veggies, 2 TBSP Salsa & 2 TBSP Hummus & 1-2 navel oranges or cuties for lunch
& grilled veggies with 2 TBSP hummus for supper - 1 portabella mushroom, 1 green bell pepper, 1 vidalia onion, 1 jalapeno pepper & 1 tomato seasoned eith Mrs Dash for supper - 2 cups watermelon for dessert.
I plan on adding 1 TBSP flaxseed to breakfast & I am not sure if the hummus counts as part of my bean serving... I was thinking of pureeing some beans in with the hummus to add to lunch & supper to get to my cup daily. Cant stand the texture of beans any other way. :-( Will wait to add avocadoes, nuts, & starches when I am at my goal weight. 100 lbs to go.
