Happy Wednesday to all! I am in a good mood today…which is strange for hump day.
And as always, it’s What I Ate Wednesday! This month, thanks to Jenn of course, those who are a part of the party are challenged to focus on eating green and eating as many veggies as possible. This is great for me as I take part in the vegan challenge for Lent.
Oh ya..a little update on that. I have been feeling GREAT while eating this vegan diet. I have really been watching my intake and what is entering my body, and as a result, my body is loving me. I have energy and I feel strong, even though my poor hip isn’t letting me work out like I used to. This whole thing has also encouraged me to try foods that I normally don’t eat much of or that I had never tried before. Like the tofu we tried the other day. And hummus. I had tried it once before but I have really been loving it lately.
Enough talking about it, though. Here are some pics of what I’ve been eating this past week:
Rice pasta with hot sauce, corn, and peas
Toast with almond butter and strawberry jelly
Leftovers: baked sweet potato, brown rice with veggies, and of course, ketchup
Hummus and crackers
First time I tried this flavor…loved it as per usual
Green grapes in a green container!
I am hoping to make some pretty awesome meals from now on, though, due to the newest addition to my kitchen:
Don’t worry, it wasn’t $44.99. We saw it in an ad for Boscov’s, and I had Trav pick one up for me for $20.00. His brother brought it back to school with him (he goes to Ship, too!) and I just picked it up today.
Oh ya…it comes with a mini baby
Looks like someone approves already!
Ok, sorry this is the longest post ever. Happy WIAW! And check out Run to the Finish’s Vegan Challenge. This is another motivator for me to keep my Lenten promise. So many positives to this type of diet…and I am starting to feel and notice why so many people choose to live a vegan lifestyle.
Happy Wednesday! (I think I am so happy because the SUN IS SHINING AND IT’S 60 DEGREES!) Ok, enough. Bye.
