What’s April have in store for me? Well, first a family weekend for Easter with both my family and Trav’s family. I am super excited for that. I also have my last few weeks of class for the semester which most likely means that I will have lots of school work and finalizing work things. And hopefully I can work on healing my hip to make it all better in time for the half marathon!
But what I am most interested in seeing is how my eating habits change once Lent is over. I have grown to love veganism. I love the way that I feel and I love the energy I have seemed to have. I don’t really miss anything that was given up during Lent. It has also forced me to incorporate new things into my meals. I am not sure what will happen once Friday rolls around, but I am sure I will keep you up to date.
And I am sure I will continue eating yummy meals like this:
- Vegetable oil (enough to coat the pan)
- 1 cup cooked brown rice (I pulled out frozen and heated it up)
- Green pepper
- Any veggies on hand
- 1/4 tsp minced garlic
- Franks red hot sauce
- Vegan chicken (or protein of choice)
I heated up the chicken and thawed the rice before throwing it all into a lightly coated pan with enough hot sauce to lightly coat everything. It was perfect for my spicy food cravings that I happen to get about once every two weeks.
Off to sub I go! Now that coaching swimming has ended, I finally have time to substitute teach some more. Today I am heading back to where my teaching experience started, and I am subbing in the same emotional support classroom in which I did part of my undergraduate student teaching! Hope it all goes well!
Enjoy your Tuesday!
Any big plans for your April??
