That’s Forty five days. We are half way through the challenge.
I feel like I’m sold – like I could eat this way the rest of my life and learn something new about it everyday. But I’m trying not to cross the finish line early, not to jump to conclusions just yet. I’m only half way there. Will my opinion change by December 6th?
I’m still having fun discovering new things to cook and eat and developing new favorites. There are so many things I still want to try just based on the recipes I’ve read in the last six weeks. Tonight we had a fantastic vegan taco feast.
The foot is still messed up, but every day it’s different and I’m still steadfastly believing that it’s getting better.
The headstands are getting ever so imperceptibly more steady, but man it’s a slow process. The extra work is definitely changing my body though and that’s rewarding to see after such a short time.
Here’s what I ate today:
- Oatmeal with molasses & agave nectar, blueberries, pecans, flaxseed and hemp hearts
- Brown Rice and Black Bean Burrito, 1/2 orange bell pepper, apple, banana
- Appetizer: Hummus with heirloom carrots.
- Vegan Walnut Tacos
- Black Beans
- Green salad with Tahini dressing
- Glass of Cabernet
- Dark Chocolate
The tacos were a hit tonight. I think that’s three nights in a row. There is hope after all. My wife Annette really liked the filling and said she was glad that I didn’t buy a piece of chicken to make just for her. Jake liked it too. I was fairly unsure what either of them would think so I’m very happy that it worked out that well.
The Tahini dressing was a nice change of pace, but needs a little work before I put my stamp on it.
Another vegan day.
