Days 100 -102
102 days into this journey. I started off strong but I have to be honest, it can be tough sometimes. I never miss meat. I haven’t cooked meat for my family in many, many years. With 4 people to please at every meal, it is not always easy to make strict dietary change. Life happens and you get busy and until I replace old recipes with new ones, it is still a challenge (mostly with dairy)....

An easy and filling breakfast: toast, peanut butter, bananas, agave and almonds. (check out the picture on my blog). Strawberries and blueberries are great to add for antioxidants.
Wow, almost to 100 days!!! One of my favorite breakfasts is toast with peanut butter, bananas, agave and almonds (pictured below on blog). It just feels good to eat. I ordered a citrus juicer and can’t wait to start making fresh orange juice. I got it off of One Kings Lane, a great resource for lots of interior decorating things but they also have lots of kitchen stuff for great prices....

Look for new recipes on tumblr, always being posted. Check out my recipe page for some easy and good recipes. I don’t put them on my recipe page unless I try them myself and really like them.
Tried new recipe for Tuscan Bean and Kale Soup. It was really delicious especially after it sat for a bit and the flavors blended together. I’ll be making this a lot. On my recipe.

Change recipes that you love with vegan alternatives. There are many recipes you don’t have to give up to be vegan. Cold morning, soup for breakfast. Try new recipes, you may not like all of them, but that’s okay, that’s how you find the good ones.
It’s been so chilly that soup has just sounded good for breakfast. Been eating lots of cuties, love them. Trying new recipes, especially looking for things to make in my new blender. I need to find things that I can make ahead of time and reheat and are quick. Week days are busy and I want to make sure I’m feeding my family good healthy vegan meals. Working on changing old recipes by...
Day 94 Helpful Hints
Helpful hints for Day 94: Having trouble eating right, try a food log and see if that helps. Try my easy Guacamole recipe for a snack or with a meal. Love my Vitamix blender, highly recommend it.
Decided to start a food log to help see what is working and what isn’t. Writing down everything I eat in a day. I made guacamole yesterday which we love in my household. It’s so easy to make and very healthy. Also, I’m trying a new vegan tortilla soup recipe that I’m making in my Vitamix blender. Will let you know how it is.

Day 80 - 93
One of the reasons I started this blog was to concentrate on eating better for my body, living a healthier and more kind lifestyle, and being a good wife and mother. As you get older you see more and more of the people you love age and sometimes it’s just not pretty. If a person has not taken care of themselves, physically, emotionally and spiritually the end can be very sad and full of pain...

Very excited that I got a Vitamix blender for Christmas. My husband saw I was struggling and wanted to be supportive and knew how much I wanted this blender. I really enjoy my smoothies every morning but I had blown out my other blender making them. I knew I needed a more high powered blender and was thrilled to get it for Christmas. I made my first smoothie with it this morning and what a...
Day 72-79 I'm Back!!!
I’m not happy to have to post this but I want to be very honest about this journey of health. I love eating a vegan diet, although the change can be difficult at times. The hardest part for me is giving up dairy. Eating vegetarian is easy, but giving up dairy for me means learning a lot of new recipes to feed, not just myself, but my whole family. What I didn’t see tripping this...
Day 71: Taking A Break, But I'll Be Back!!!
Haven’t had a post since December 3rd, Day 54. Still on the vegan journey, but sometimes life gets crazy. Don’t give up on me. I’ll get back to it by the first of the year, if not sooner. Thanks to all my followers, who are hanging in there with me. I’m learning a lot through this blog, most importantly, that part of a journey is that sometimes there are forks in the road....
