Best laid plans
I planned on doing a run today at least at the gym on the treadmill but I still feel too sick and congested. I'm sure fellow gym goers will appreciate me keeping my germs to myself so I stayed home and tried to rest. I did feel well enough this afternoon to cook though. I'm still doing great on my food.

Oatmeal with bananas, strawberries, cinnamon, walnuts and almond milk

I made Polenta Lasagna
Polenta, tomato sauce, garlic, onions, mushrooms, kale, spinach with tofu riccota
steamed broccoli

air popped popcorn, apple

Still hanging in (my cold that is) (me to I guess) I seem to be having a terrible time with the congestion. I'm hoping it's on its way out. I searched the term "sick" on the forums and it seems I'm not the only one. It appears some are pushing through but it is frustrating.
This is going to be my last rest day and tomorrow I'm going to do strength. I have a lot of other things to do plus school so hopefully it will all go well.

Food still delish!
Oatmeal with bananas, strawberries, cinnamon, walnuts, flax meal and almond milk
Polenta lasagna from yesterday even better today: Polenta, tomato sauce, garlic, onions, mushrooms, kale, spinach with tofu riccota
steamed broccoli
Whole grain ABJ sandwich
clementine, apple, few nuts

Ok here we go tomorrow all will be well and power day!!!!

You eat ridiculously well. Its like a garden for each meal. I am inspired. I'm working at less frozen imitation meats and more whole foods.

Thanks Dylan!
When I first went vegan I did have a lot more frozen imitation meats. Then I started experimenting more and trying recipies I found online and in some books I had then it became a lot easier and fun!
Bon appetite!!!

This evening I had the opportunity to see the movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead" presented by Veg Michigan at the Landmark Main Theater in Royal Oak. It was very informative and inspiring. The movie was followed by a juicing demo and free samples were given out. Another interesting thing about the movie; The theater was packed! On a bitter cold evening in Michigan, people came out to learn how to change their lives and get healthy!

Small ripples can create waves!!

Green smoothie - clementine, apple, brown rice protein, ginger root, strawberries, blueberries, spinach, kale, mint leaves
Brown rice bowl with frozen Italian style veggies, ABJ sandwich on sprouted grain bread, edamame
Soba noodles with spices and spinach

Hope everyone had a great day!
