I saw encouragement to do this in another post, so I am going to write what I eat most days:
2 little frozen vegan waffles with Adam's peanut butter and molasses
rice or couscous, boiled/steamed broccoli, peas, maybe some pinto beans, maybe some fruit salad - we have raspb and strawb from the garden. Summer time is easier to start these diets huh?
Salad, more rice and beans or couscous. Usually a frozen Amy's vegan dinner.
Well, I haven't taken the time to cook yet. It's kind of lame, but I have put it on my to-do list for September when my BS degree is over.
I also drink a soy protein type drink sometimes, use soy-yogurt with granola and apple or pear cut up.
For some reason, I haven't been drinking alcohol or eating sugar at all since starting this diet, but I have carob chips and dates in the cupboard just in case.
I just worry if I should eat more protein, or less fat?
Do you guys just listen to your body in the transition phase? I find myself wanting to eat at least four times a day. Also, exercise is at a minimum until school is over. I know a lot about the way it should be, but if I try to do it all at once, I sabotage. I just wanted some feedback.
I really like this forum. I can't watch those videos though. I tried yesterday and I just cry and never forget them. My dad worked in a meat packing/slaughter house for a lot of my childhood and he would tell us about the animals as we ate them. I don't know if it made me more sensitive or more accepting. My mom turned us meat and sugar free once my dad quit. I wonder how he did it for all those years to support us. All I know now is I can't handle how much horrific pain we cause creatures. I feel helpless to stop it, but one thing at a time.
