Next year, consider planting Scarlet Runner Beans. They grow like crazy, bloom in scarlet red which attracts hummingbirds in droves, and the beans, themselves, are mottled in shades of purple, black, and cream and taste AMAZING in a vegan crumb bake. Nummy! Ironically, the organic ones are often insanely expensive in stores to buy for cooking--strange considering how effortless they are to grow.

Breakfast:
1/2 cantaloupe
3 cups of orange juice (330 cal.) with a scoop of protein powder.

Lunch and breaks:
1/2 sour apple, (drop half no place to wash it off) 1 banana, 3 black plumbs, chewed 1 calcium pill and water.

Dinner:
1/2 eggplant barbecued light oil spray, beans Called wife during lunch and asked her to soak some beans for me, she must have add extra water much later in the soak because half of the beans were cooked and half weren't as you might see. Into the soup with the rest of them. Wife at store, so can't ask her, just my guess. Only 90 calories of Daiya cheese, over some catchup.

Image


OK, well I couldn't get through half the beans on the plate, so I set about rounding up some older veggies with the beans and soup it is.

Image

Down about 8 pounds from Sunday, still fit in my 38 waist paints, they don't make men size 37 in pants, :lol: only 36, 38, 40,... :evil:
So onwards and downwards!

Image

Well with some of the family leaving tomorrow, My daughter bought some soy choc. ice cream. I think her sister put her up to it. So I measured out 1 cup 260 calories. :zunge:

I finally live somewhere where I can buy Daiya so my first night here I rushed right out and bought some and came home and made a grilled cheese. It took me awhile to get used to it, but it's pretty good! The first pizza I made with it kind of creeped me out since it has been so long since I've had cheese, haha
