Finished Sprouts

Finished Sprouts

 

 

Food – We all love it.  We are always trying to eat healthier.  I struggle, being lacto-vegetarian.  I have way too much dairy in my diet.  Then there is wheat.  Recently I went twenty-one days without wheat.  Perhaps that wasn’t long enough.  I saw no change in the way I felt.  For the last three days I haven’t eaten dinner.  When I skip dinner I DO see a change.  It’s like a mini fast for me.  Yesterday while doing yoga and walking I felt so much lighter.  I have been trying to make meals I think my husband will really appreciate.  I practice with lunch, since that is my main meal.  Then I repeat at dinner, and sometimes change it around a little or add to it.  I have begun sprouting again.  I love sprouts, on salads, on sandwiches, but not really for juicing.

Some of the latest food entrees:

Veggie Burger with Sweet Potato Fries

On this non-gmo veggie burger is cilantro, salsa, and avocado.

I use tempeh when making ruebens.  I added dandelion greens to the hummus.  For the evening meal I added fries for my husband.

    Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
    Healthy eating is vitally important for overall health. These are some very good meal suggestions from “athursdayschild.” Thank you.

    It is a challenge and one wants to do what is right by body and environment and not “feed” into the hunger of others elsewhere in the world. I am gluten-free, wheat-free, soy-free vegan. Not the easiest diet to manage outside of home. At home I do a lot of green shakes. FYI: When I went off of wheat-and-gluten, I had a 16% increase in lung function. Amazed one and all including the docs. Anecdotal none-the-less. :-(

    I stopped eating grains back in January…I added half a packet of pearled barley to my soup last week and have been eating that soup all week and can’t believe the digestive trouble I am having at the moment! When you eat grains you need a whole LOT more water in your diet…I am having to drink a lot more and that is playing havoc with working outdoors at the moment and having to rush inside often ;). I agree with you about the evening meal, I figure you could have some miso soup or something light a bit earlier (say 4pm?) if you are starting to get hungry. I have noticed that starchy things are starting to creep back into my own diet so am going to have to start eating lunch myself … lovely looking “food” by the way! Your husband is very lucky :)
