Can y’all believe it’s December? I’m doing a what I eat in a day blog.
I never feel like eating in the morning, so this was simple and light.
Lunch was leftovers from last night. It started out to be a sort of minestrone, but ended up being a macaroni casserole. It has macaroni, carrots, onions, celery, grape tomatoes and cabbage cooked in veggie broth and seasoned with garlic, onion and Italian seasoning. It turned out much tastier than I expected!
Dinner is potato soup full of veggies. Carrots, celery and onions, and broccoli. I used hemp milk in it and seasoned with onion and garlic powder. It smells delicious!
I almost didn’t post today. As I have said earlier, I’m going through some stuff.
But my diet is still good. I had a piece of Spanish tortilla for brunch. It’s just hashbrowns baked together with onions and an egg substitute. I use Just Egg, but you can use a chickpea egg as well. Season as you like, mix together in a casserole dish and bake at 375° F for 50 minutes or until a knife inserted comes clean. It’s so good!
This is my evening snack. Avocado toast. I haven’t had this for quite awhile. I forgot how tasty it is. I added grape tomatoes and everything seasoning on Dave’s Killer bread. Simple and yum!
Today’s brunch. I have been missing my potatoes and bok choy (can’t find any at the moment) so I improvised. I took diced peppers and onions, and sliced mushrooms, and fried them up with potatoes. I seasoned it simply with a touch of salt and a whole lot of pepper (I LOVE pepper!) and voila! It hit the spot.
Served it with a cup of orange spice herbal tea. Delicious! As usual, I could only eat half, so I have a ready made breakfast for tomorrow!
I really have to catch y’all up on what’s been going on in my life, but that’s for another post.
What have you been doing on your wellness journey?
Today’s dinner was a treat. Well-deserved after the last three weeks. I know I keep saying I’ll update you. Perhaps tomorrow.
This is a vegan calzone from Mellow Mushroom. You get to “build” your own. Mine has Follow Your Heart vegan cheese, spinach, mushrooms, calamata olives, artichoke hearts, green bell peppers, onions, roasted tomatoes and roasted red peppers. It comes with a side of marinara and it is beyond delicious!
You can see I was only able to eat a quarter of it. But that’s fine. Leftovers!
Can you believe there are only three months left in the year? Time is really going by fast!
Today is a health update. You see, a person can do everything right and still have problems. I had a small stroke sometime within the past week. I woke up with these issues, but thought it was related to the food allergy I had previously.
I am okay now, but I am still left with the damage that was done. Now I have to wait for my brain to rewire. Most of the problem I have now is balance. And my vision has been affected. They both seem to play off one another. Once again, it seems to have affected my right side. And my language has also been affected. I find myself saying things that I don’t say. For instance, I told my doctor I was gooder. I NEVER talk that way! But it came out anyway.
A funny sidenote was, when I went to my doctor, I had my shirt on backwards and didn’t even notice! And nobody told me! They didn’t notice either until I pointed it out. Guess that goes to show how observant people really are. Lol!
My point in all this is to say that sometimes things happen regardless of how many steps I take or how clean my diet is. This is number 5 for me and there is no reason for it. My blood sugar has been well under control despite the diabetes, and I have never had high cholesterol or high blood pressure. In fact, it has been so low at times it can barely be heard. I had one nurse tell me I was dead! Lol!
I guess I am an anomaly. But really, aren’t we all? At least I know what it is and what to expect. And I know that the best way to handle it is keep doing what I have been. Had I not chosen this way of life, this could have been far worse.
