I workout and eat good pretty strictly and I'm always looking to improve in both nutrition and fitness and this will be a nice challenge and change of pace. I would say I am at about 85-90% vegan at this point I have been making the transition for about a year. I still eat organic eggs and occasionaly fish. Today is my scheduled off day for training sonothing to report with that today. back at it tomorrow

meals today

ezekial cereal with coconut milk. 1/2 banana, cinnamon
green juice smoothie

chia seed pudding with 2 tsp almond butter
green tea

vegan nachos and guacamole while watching some NFL football. my lions lost :psycho:

spaghetti squash with homemade vegan sausage from vegan muscle and fitness blog (check it out great ideas)
homemade tomato sauce, mushrooms, capers
large green salad with EFA vega oil blend and lemon juice

Hi Kelly!

Awesome job with consistency in exercise and journaling! Your homemade vegan sausage sounds yummy! And I love Vega products, too. I think of the Whole Food Health Optimizer as my nutritional insurance policy. :)

Keep up the great work!

All the best!
Karen

Karen, thanks. yeah I think consistency in anything is really the key. The Vegan sausage is super easy to make and very filling! Yes the vega products are definitely the best I have ever had, I wish I could afford everything all the time! I usually buy the bars pretty frequently and pre workout energizer but I can only afford a large tub of one of the powders every once in awhile, in between that I get another vegan brand that is good, just doesnt have as much of a full spectrum of things that vega does, but yeah the whole food optimizer is totally like a nutritional insurance policy.

Sometimes this happens like when I'm at my parents for sunday dinner and they kinda know my stance on nutrition but they only "halfway get it" sooo i always end up loading up on vegetable type things and kind of avoiding meat and cheese things but then it becomes obvious and I dont want to make it a big deal like im some inconvenience especially since they go through a lot of effort to have us over. thankfully i only deal with this once every 2 weeks.
