Days 8-12 Plant Eating Challenge

I have been so busy lately with work, I just haven’t had a chance to get in a post.

I am happy to say, that I have been successful with my challenge to date. I did have a wee bit of a dip made with yogurt on the weekend, but that’t it. Also, I have had bread (not whole grain) on a couple of occasions.

I am down 5.2 lbs since I committed 12 days ago. I continue with my exercise in the morning, although I did get off track for a few days.

My daughter is also doing well. It can be more difficult for her. She had eggs and tuna on the weekend while at a friend’s house and when visiting my sister.

Overall, we are both pleased with how things are going.

By the way…I cooked black beans in my slowcooker, while at work, today. I had been meaning to try that method. They worked out well. I had the setting on low.

When I got home, I threw them in  a pot with some left-over brown rice and chopped some cilantro. But, I needed something moist and flavourful. What did I have in the house, that was not highly processed and was plant-based?

So, I blended some chunks of cooked cauliflower with some homemade rice milk and some flavouring (garlice chili sauce and soya sauce). It was tasty. Next time, I should put some ginger in that sauce too.

No picture today, but eating plants is simple, as long as you have them on hand. Love the simplicity.

Wishing you a healthy journey.
