Ingredients: One pan cooking of - fresh sweet onion chopped, packaged sweet potato fries, 1/5 block tofu, sea salt, cumin, thyme, mrs. dash... anything else on hand that seemed like a good spice.
Result: Crazy flavorful tofu burger on whole grain flat bread with baby spinach, fresh tomato, and honey dijon dressing. YUM.
Food for work for the next day: (always plan ahead. If you fail to plan, you plan to fail).
Fruit 'Till Noon- peaches (I had 3 total). Lunch - My 'rockstar' salad of baby spinach, Garden Burger, frozen peas, frozen edamame, salad dressing (w/ out sugar), fresh tomato... yay summertime. Totally vegan.
Calorie Counter: No, I don't have an iPhone. I have an android phone and get most of the same apps. I use Calorie Counter on my phone (you can scan packaging), but really like The Daily Plate (thanks Lance Armstrong). All free. All easy. And yes, this was actually what I ate on monday not yesterday or today.I toast the veggie burger, throw it in a huge bowl with every thing else.
Result: Full, happy belly, feeling of total control. Envy of everyone at work who was like "wow what a beautifully bright salad."
Just try it. Just for me... ok really just for you. You know you want to. You know you are curious and scared and wonder what would happen if you actually ate healthier.
Would you feel better?
Would you look better?
Would you lose weight?
Would you have energy?
Would you have so much energy that working out seemed like a fun thing instead of a chore?
Would you be saving the planet? (factory farms are the #1 contributor to both air and water polution due to animal wastes)
YES! Yes to all.
The only thing stopping you is YOU. And you know this.
Ok I'm done, but you have just begun.
Consider yourself motivated.
