They told me...
... if you don't eat meat or eggs you will be hungry
... your cravings will overcome your will power
... you don't have the strength to make these changes
Well, I'm here to tell them. Nice Try.
My hunger is actually more rational these days. I actually get full after eating a reasonable portion of food. The childhood mantra of " you must clean your plate" is long gone. I am actually eager to fill my days with fruits and vegetables -- new creations, new discoveries.
This morning, breakfast consisted of a smoothie made with two simple ingredients- watermelon and frozen strawberries. The best part of all? It kept me full longer than a breakfast of " hearty eggs" kept the rest of my family full.
Lunch today a simple barbecue'd eggplant salad followed by a snack of hummus and whole wheat bread.
I'm looking forward to a dinner of a multitude of barbecued vegetables ( pictures to come soon). But for now, these pictures are of a dinner from earlier this week. How can you feel like you are missing out when you have amazing roasted potatoes; barbecued asparagus, zucchini and broccoli; and a simple salad of tomatoes and cucumber tossed in a lemon dressing.
