New Plan

It has been wonderful to work with a health & lifestyle coach and I'm enjoying so many aspects of this! With a new eating plan, I'm reducing my soy intake and lowering the carb-craziness I tend to fall into. Zone exercises, more sleep, and lots of water have been so beneficial that I am able to tackle the old problems of working too much, stressing, and worrying about everyone else! With new information on health, nutrition, and uncovering the not-so-obvious culprits to bad health, I'm so excited to keep on this track and learn more.

I'm making lots of foods myself now, like this 17 bean mix which is now simmering in my slow cooker and becoming soup!

Lots of fresh greens in my salads and homemade salad dressing are becoming addicting. Skipping the processed foods has been a good move too and is helping me cook more and sprout more! (Brocolli sprouts are currently on deck!)

The day before my health "attack plan" came into play, I did make a dessert though that I had to share! It's low-fat and awesome and is from one of my favorite blogs ever: Fat-Free Vegan Kitchen by Susan. (Follow the link for the recipe!)

Strawberry Short Cake (with added bananas:)

No more strawberry cake for me for now though... my new leopard bikini is waiting!
