going into the 3rd week of a lose 1 pound per week challenge.
have lost 3 pounds so far.
the good thing about a significant fruit/vege intake is that there seems to be less weight fluctuation.
had a good amount of both smked salmon and spinach pizzas last night with no great impact on the scales today.
cheers

It's something different from the norm, it offers me more variety. Its usually more colourful and more healthy (if you're not just scarfing down cinnamon rolls ;).

Call me Sandy. My goals are performing 50 regular push-ups in 1 minute, doing a 5 minute plank, being able to do a pull-up, run for 2 miles and and reaching 130 pounds.

Afterwards you can feel good about heathy eating ( certainly much healthier than 80 percent of Americans); you can feel at peace with not hurting anything or anyone to please your palate.

Usually, they are a lot quicker to make. Not a lot to cook, most of the time. Canned beans, drained and rinsed. Fresh veggies, cleaned and chopped. I eat yogurt, sour cream, shredded 2% cheese and eggs. Eggs are easy to cook, too.

We are very much a meat eating family. I would like to find some easy alternatives for myself that don't require a bunch of special ingredients. I'm very curious about trying to cook with tofu. I've had it before, just never cooked with it.

I use beans as a meat replacer all the time. I make veggie burgers with beans, and make a meat-less loaf with beans. I also eat tofu, tempeh, and TVP which are all made from soy beans.

I use beans as meat replacement all of the time. The "secret" for me is keeping the portion under 1/2 cup! emoticon

Is protein 4-bean a brand? Is it like 3 bean salad?

Vegetarian meals are great in the evening, they are so light - no heavy feeling after supper.

Also I know the meal is way less calories than traditional meat packed meals.

I don't feel as if there is a lead weight in my stomach after I eat a vegetarian meal! I also like the fact that herb and spice flavors are more distinct.
