My system needs an overhaul

My system needs an overhaul.  I always go back to vegan eating when I need a change.  Why  you ask?  Because it make me feel....awesome!  I feel lighter, not bloated, I feel full, not hungry, and I just feel good about myself.  I looked in the mirror the other day and I did not like what I saw....at all!  So, here goes to a full system reset.  I'll keep you posted!

This is my breakfast and lunch.


I found a recipe for Spanish style collard greens.  I did everything but cook them.  It was pretty good.  That's what I had for my dinner.  I added some nutritional yeast on the top.

I made a Marinated Kale Salad for lunch.  It's good but I could not remember the recipe that was shared with me so I improvised.  I used a little too much Tamari, but it's till good!  Lunch at my desk!   Bon Appetite!

So here we (I) go again....

This is for me mostly.  I have high cholesterol and high blood pressure and I just don't feel like I am doing the best that I can for my health.  Its for my family because I want to be around long enough to fulfill my dreams (singer/actress) and see my grand children, should my daughter ever have any.  So, here we go again.  Yesterday was a completely vegan day for me.  I did not drink all of the water that I should have, but I will definitely do that today.  I drank too much water before bed because I was up all night long going to the bathroom.  I drank about 5 cups before bedtime.  That was not smart.  I have a water tracker app on my phone, Water your Body.  It gets on my nerves, but it does the trick.  It says I should be drinking 91.1 oz of water a day based on my height and weight.  I weigh about 190 and I am 5'2.  Anyway, I put a picture of yesterdays lunch.  It was a French Lentil Steak Burger: Rawtopian Bliss Raw Vegan Diners Club.  It was absolutely delicious!!  I also had the Raw Vegan
Nori Rolls.  I did not take a picture of that, but they are soooo delicious!

Today for dinner I had some fried rice with my Tahini dressing and carrots dipped in the dressing.....it is absolutely delicious!!!  I have a new addiction!!  I will have to make this dressing again.....it's my new favorite.  I have had Goddess dressing from the store...and I must say I prefer my own to any other I've tried....but of course that's because I made it!  :)  My dinner was not completely raw, because I ate the rice....but I didn't eat too much of it.


We had late start today because of the cold temperatures, so I skipped breakfast.  I'm going right into a "brunch".  And I'm hungry...so I'm about to dive in!!!!

I should be eating more...lots more......my coworker brought me some veggies for lunch from a local restaurant and I assumed it would be more.....oh well!!!  It's now raw....but I think it'll be ok :)

Breakfast 1/6/14

My breakfast...

Starting again...again...and again

Today I weighed myself and I am 199lbs.....with my small 5'1 frame....that's unhealthy.  I went to the doctor, and on my notes it had a section for previous diagnosis.  Under that, it said obesity.  Obesity.  Wow.  I have this nagging back pain too.   Hate that.  I am doing this 21 day raw food challenge given by a young lady that I follow on YouTube named FullyRawKristina.  I love her energy and her spirit.  She is always very positive, and a little goofy, but I like that about her.  She runs a co-op in Texas, I believe, and she is passionate about raw foods and the health of all people, hence, her 21 day raw food challenge.  Her website is packed with great information about who she is, what she does and how she began her journey, and her fully raw meal plan.  And yes.....for free.  Not only is it FREE, but if you like and comment on all of her videos during the challenge, she will give you a free eBook.  Isn't that just awesomely amazing?  I mean, really...where they do that at??  I actually paid for a raw food program with Jinjee and Storm Talifero called The Garden Diet, but I did not get as much as what I feel I am getting from Kristina.  I am going to post what I do daily, as a way to keep me on track.  I always start and never finish, so this time I hope to finish with flying colors.  I will post pics of my meals daily as well.  I have to do something.  I feel like my body is on overload.  My body and spirit are tired, time for me to reboot myself!!  I included a picture of the Fully Raw challenge from Kristinas webpage.
