Well, it’s almost over! I thought I would share with you a little of how I eat. For the most part, I follow Dr. John McDougall’s Starch Solution, with a bit of the Esselstyn’s, Dr. Greger and Dr. Barnard tossed in for good measure.
Here are a few of my meals. Potato and cauliflower soup, the soup over steamed broccoli, saffron rice with Brussels sprouts, and steamed potatoes and broccoli with a vegan creamy Italian dressing.
I like to keep things simple. I love to cook, but with the health issues I have had, it’s hard for me to stand at the counter for long periods of time. It’s good to know I can whip up something quickly that is nourishing to my body and soul If I am still hungry, I can simply have a second helping. And of course, leftovers.
I have been able to regain the weight I needed (up from 98 pounds due to my allergy to animal products) and maintain a healthy weight for over 5 years of eating this way. And my numbers are excellent. As a type 1 diabetic, my a1c has never gone above 7.2. Which is great, for any who understand or care…lol!
As the new year approaches, I encourage you to seek for more healthy ways of caring for yourselves. Mine is just one method. Keep moving!
Somerimes you just have to have a huge bowl of hot,creamy soup! It’s 25° F here at the moment and I’m a little under the weather (no, not the bug that’s going around).
So hubby made this delicious soup. Just potatoes, cauliflower and onions, boiled until tender, and then blended with a block of tofu in our Vitamix. Seasoned simply with a touch of salt. Really hits the spot.
High in protein, low in fat, no oil, and delicious! What more can a girl ask for? And he washes the dishes, too! Sorry, ladies. He’s taken! Lol!
And finally, wishing all of you the merriest of Christmases!
I made the most incredible winter vegetable soup a couple of days ago. I added potatoes, carrots, celery and onion as well as turnips, parsnips and broccoli for something green. It took 12 cups of water! I seasoned it with no-chicken boullion cubes and herbes de provence. It was sooo good!
But then there were leftovers. I added great northern beans and had it for lunch the next day. But there were still leftovers. I put 2 quarts in the freezer and was still left with over a quart.
So I decided to add some millet and brown rice ramen noodles, tofu, and green beans to make it a hearty meal. I added tamari and another boullion cube for flavor. It was so good I went back for seconds! Together, hubby and I polished it off.
What a wonderful way to spend a cold and snowy winter day over a bowl (or two) of hot, comforting soup. And all vegan with no added fat! I love eating whole food plant based!
