So I hope I did not scare anyone with my interpretation of the real Slim Shady.
Last night I had plans of going to yoga, but then everyone bailed, and I didn’t really want to be coming home at 10pm by myself so I bailed too. I am sure I missed out, but I slept instead.
In more exciting news, my parents watched Food, Inc and have a new respect for the food industry! In the spirit of that, the new year and just for kicks, we are doing a 21 day vegan based diet. [not diet, but that is how you say eating habits and that is our new eating habit experiment.] I tried the whole vegetarian thing once before, I know, I know. But then I focused entirely too much on carbs and not enough on vegetables. Anyway, this is just for three weeks to see how it goes!
I started the morning with stove top oatmeal. Not usually a luxury I get to enjoy, as I am normally pushed for time and make microwave oatmeal which is not as delicious.
- almond butter
Oatmeal is always better with a nut butter…this was no exception. It was exceptional.
For lunch I did not skimp on the veggies. No sir, I did not!
Carbs for breakfast, veggies for lunch! I am already doing much better than my previous experience.
For my snack I had this apple:
As well as my almonds I did not finish the day before, and some craisins that I happened upon.
Apples are not enough for a snack…not for this girl!
I helped Mama D make the most fantastic dinner. By help, I mean I assisted in the rolling out of Tandoori Rotis and opened a can of black beans.
So basically I did nothing to help prepare this deliciousness.
Like this salad. Did not lift a finger toward it, but it was delicious nonetheless.
Seriously, so good. The apples and pears against the blander almonds and spinach made this mouthwatering. Completely.
I think I did help roll out my roti.
Given it’s misshapen appearance I have gathered that. It was still good. I love soft chewy breads.
Sweet potato! Natures candy…
This was the best meal I have had in a long time…probably because it was prepared with love, no?
And it was vegan. Vegan Thursday, what!?!?
