I like reading your food journal because you eat mostly healthy, but include some treats too.

I kindof fell off the wagon lately & ate like crap for a few weeks, lots of processed carbs, but I'm making a comeback. I got a ton of fruits & veggies yesterday.

Do you buy your peirogies or make them? I've been having a hard time finding vegan ones.

Thanks Lisa! :D I don't think I could be very happy if my diet was only healthy stuff all the time, and I think I've found a pretty good compromise. I mean, if I manage to choke down 10-15 servings of f&v a day, why the heck shouldn't I be allowed to eat dessert? :D

I find when I fall off the healthy wagon I feel pretty crappy too. Good for you getting back on. ;)

I buy my pierogies. There are a few vegan kinds where I am, and these ones are not cheap but they're very delicious. They're also an excellent vehicle to force myself to eat more kale!

All your food sounds so yummy. Does it take a long time to prepare your meals? Personally I hate the kitchen, and am not very adventurous.
The devotion of thought to an honest achievement makes the achievement possible.

I've never actually eaten a real shrimp in my life, so I can't really compare. :) My dad says he likes the fake shrimp even better than the real shrimp. I like them on their own merits. I've tried another kind once that wasn't as good as these ones. I'm not really big on fake meats either but I like having a few of these on occasion.

Thank you. :) I spend more time in the kitchen than I'd care to, but I see it as an investment in my health and well-being. Last night's dinner took maybe 45 minutes to prepare. Breakfast and lunch don't take much time at all.

I cheat a bit and use prepared things sometimes. For example, I buy these little cans of curry paste for $1: http://www.maesribrand.com/Can.htm and they are very authentic. Mix it with some coconut milk and voila! I do spend a lot of time making smoothies, but they're good value for the time spent, nutrition-wise.

The real killer is dishes... we don't have a dish washer (I never have) so I feel like I spend half my spare time doing dishes. :x

The chef is never supposed to do the dishes!!! Thats a rule at my house, we take turns cooking & whoever doesn't cook has to clean up after.

Since I quit the seafood, the smell kindof grosses me out. I'm fine with faux chicken, turkey, or beef but I think it will be a while before I try fake seafood.

What kind of truffles are you enjoying so much? I need to get some!
