Hello

I’ve been crazy busy lately with work, the kiddos and my husband being home from Japan for a few days. Mostly doing well eating vegan, except today. My mother-in-law came to town and my husband requested pork chops. Well, I ate one, and that’s why I’m up at 330 am.  Advertisements

Why?

I do CrossFit. I’m pretty new at it, and still out of shape but I love it. So, I was at the box a few days ago and I asked if I would need a Vegan protein powder if I was trying to lose weigh but still gain muscle.  I seriously thought it was an…

Midnight snack, apple nachos 

This is a recipe that I found when I was eating Paleo that I’ve tweaked a little now that my eating has changed.  It is vegan, but still a bit of a cheat because it’s not a low calorie treat. But, it is delicious and feels more sinful than it actually is.  Easy Apple nachos…

Can we talk about poop?

That was actually a rhetorical question because I’m going to talk about poop regardless.  So, I thought eating vegan I would have lots of green, runny poop because there were days when I had a green smoothie and it made my poop green. And runny.   But, since being at least 95% vegan ( seafood…

Sushi Bowl Dreams

I’ve been quiet for a few days because I’ve been busy with work and the kids but I wanted to pop in really quick and tell you about the best food I’ve ever eaten.  I’m not sure if that’s entirely true but this was literally “scrape the bowl” good and I couldn’t wait to make…

Iodine Poisoning 

“We eat so much shrimp, I got iodine poisoning.” – Pimp C I went to the store to get some cherries and citrus. I got them, and then somehow I ended up with shrimp in my cart. And then, in my stomach.  I didn’t want to post it, but this is a place of honesty….

Burger success 

I set my expectations very low but I was pleasantly surprised.  I was in the hunt for a mushroom burger but not a portobello cap, one that had chopped mushrooms so it seemed as Meaty as possible and actually looked Like a beef burger. I had flax seeds to make the flax eggs but those…

The time has come

I knew this day would come.  I was so excited about eating vegan and amazed by how simple it was and surprised with how full I stayed. Like, how is it that I eat less food with less protein and get full faster? I thought vegan eating was a dream and couldn’t believe I hadn’t…

Really universe?!?

I’ve mentioned somewhere along the lines that I love steak and eggs. Ribeye and scrambled eggs is/was my favorite breakfast but so far the fresh fruit has been getting the job done.  So, I get to the commissary to finally get groceries and what greets me?  Seriously? I’m proud to say that I only got…

Little Changes, Big Rewards

Rushing out the house this morning to get Big A to his first day at STEM camp, we had to grab  him a sack lunch and snack so we didn’t have time for breakfast. Well, if I’m being honest, I haven’t had time to grab groceries since we got back in town but that’s a…

Taking this show on the road

Today is my first day back to work since our road trip vacation. I’ve been batch cooking to get ready for the work week (I work weekend so it’s kind of funky).  I’ve got one more day of the burrito bowl, some Pho rice noodle soup and I chopped some fruit and veggies.  So far,…

Mini Update

So far, this is pretty easy. I’m really surprised with how full I am even though I’m eating less food and probably less protein. I had a sweet potato for breakfast and wanted to add some butter (real butter is too expensive to throw away) but I went with coconut oil, cinnamon and sugar. Still…
