Educate yourself to a healthier you!

healthy breakfast
VS
sasuage egg and cheese

As I am traveling on my healthy journey I am trying to educate myself on the why’s and how’s of nutrition..recently I have started to track different area’s of nutrition…not only calories..but carbs,fat,Protein, Sodium and sugar’s…
In doing this I have started to made some comparison’s to what my life was like before in the matters of what I ate daily…I am trying to not only get healthy , but to understand the how and why’s so I do not do it all over again. I think the more I can understand about food and what it does to our bodies..the more we are able to make educated decisions that will benefit our bodies.
Today is my first of what I am sure to be..many comparison’s… I must say I am shocked at the results…it’s no wonder I am fat…in my mind …I was thinking..that One sasuage egg and cheese biscuit..would be better for me than say…donuts from Dunkin doughnuts.. or some type of pastry…but in reality it was worse!

Here is my first Comparison’s….

Item Calories Carbs Fat Protein Sodium Sugar
Hardee’s Sausage, Egg & Cheese 630 37 45 18 1520 4
Glazed Donut 260 31 14 3 330 12
______________________________________________________________________________________
Healthy Meal
2 eggs 120 1 9 12 124 0
2 ww toast 140 13 1 3 125 2
peach fresh 33 8 0 1 0 8
______________________________________________________________________________________
TOTAL 293 22 10 16 249 10

I was shocked that I was eating 630 calories for breakfast! 31 carbs and 1520 of sodium! And this was every week Monday through Friday on my way to work! OMG! And if someone brought donuts..I would eat one or two of those! UGH!

I no longer go through the drive through window at fast food joints..nor do I eat in my car.. I plan my meals..down to the last morsel…some might think this is too rigid for them.. but let me ask you this.. How are you doing with eating on the run? Would you be reading this if it was working for you?? Maybe being rigid is a good thing…and it could help.. I know one day it will all be second nature for me to eat healthy.. but right now I need a plan..and figuring out the nutritional value of what is being put into my body…is my priority these days! I urge you to do the same.. educate yourself..knowledge can be a wonderful tool for you to win your battle with food..we can’t eliminate food completly..so I need to learn to live with it..the best way I can..so that I can have a healthy body..yes, I am just beginning to learn about nutrition…but each day I make my numbers in my food diary on MY FITNESS PAL..IT MAKES ME FEEL GOOD!
Give this a try…and get MYFITNESS PAL and start tracking your numbers…it will benefit you…and you will be on the right path to a healthier you! I wish you the best…

Addiction

Food-AddictI can’t imagine what its like to be a drug addict..to want a high so badly you will go through thousands of dollars just to get a high..I don’t like to take over the counter drugs unless necessary…let alone the hard stuff..when I had my knee operation..I didn’t like taking the pain medicine..because of the way it makes me feel..I would rather have the pain…how can you like how that makes you feel? And not knowing if the next high is going to kill you… or not..a chance I am not willing to take…why take something that isn’t going to let you remember what the heck you did the night before? I just can’t wrap my head around this…

I can’t imagine what it’s like to NEED a drink everyday… I have beer and wine in my frig that had been there over a year now..I know for some, that it would of been gone the next day….everyday they stop and grab that 12 pack on the way home…and finish it off..before bedtime…Don’t get me wrong.. I enjoy a nice glass of wine..but the rest of the bottle goes to waste…I may have a white Russian if I am out for dinner..but one is enough.. I’ve never been drunk…NEVER… Two glasses of wine and I know I don’t like how it make me feel.. I like having complete control…I don’t like how alcohol makes me feel.. I can’t understand why people can’t see that they can’t drive after have too much? If you fumble while getting the keys in the ignition.. don’t drive.. it’s a no brainer.. how do you like laying by the toilet and puking your guts out? Yet, You still enjoy doing it all over again..tomorrow.. Not me…lives and familes are ruined by alcohol…why do it?

I enjoy sex.. but I can’t imagine being addicted to it and giving up my body to anyone that I meet….or being addicted to looking at it…people meet in the back alley and arrange sex…with a stranger and then go home to their partner..and do it again.. I’d be afraid some creep would kill me.. or that I would end up with a STD..or even AIDS..isn’t this degrading to you? How can you be addicted to this? How does it even begin?

And don’t get me started on cigarettes…I’ve kissed a man who smoked and it tasted awful! I have lived with a smoker and seen his yellow teeth and smelled the smoke on his clothing.. I hated it.. how can you want to stick a cig in your mouth and do all that harm to your lungs! We have all seen the pictures of the smokers lungs…black with tar like substance …and the cancer.. they spend millions of dollars on campaigns to keep young kids to stop..and yet.. its a multi dollar business… no matter what anyone says.. it’s not cool to smoke..not to mention the cost of a carton of those things! How do you like spending all of your hard earned money like that??? Up in smoke!
No I can’t understand how a person gets addicted to smoking.. drinking.. drugs..and sex…..those things don’t interest me…however….
I do under stand being addicted to food.. I understand how it make me feel better after a long day at work.. I understand that no matter how bad my day goes..that I can turn to the freezer and reach for the half gallon of ice cream… and eat myself happy…
I get great pleasure out of eating.. it comforts my soul.. it can make a bad day better.. a fight..tolerable..it can heal my broken heart.. and make me feel better inside..I use food like a druggie uses a needle.. it make me feel better.. and it’s not illegal.. No one cares if I stuff myself and weigh 300 pounds.. no one says a word…

In fact many family and friends of mine are are enablers … my hook up..my pimp…my dealer…see they make things to eat that I like and they even encourage me to eat me.. oh I am not blaming them.. I am just telling you they are enablers..and they don’t even know it..

If I was a alcoholic..would you ask me over to your house and offer me a drink? Or if I was a addicted to drugs..would you ask me over and have some on a silver platter for me?
If you saw me destroying myself with alcohol and drugs.. you would intervene? Why of course you would..
then why don’t you do that for me..? The food addict? Why not encourage me to seek help for my addiction???
Why not talk to me as my weight rises..and not ignore it?
Do you think I enjoy being fat? DO you think I just eat to much so I am getting fat? Do you even care?
It’s a disease that is not spoken about..after all you don’t want to hurt my feelings, right?

I have often said that I wish I wouldn’t have taken up the food addiction vise.. why? Cause I can get no help..if I was addicted to just about anything else..my insurance would pay for me to get help.. and certainly my family would seek that help for me.. out of sight out of mind..with alcohol..drugs.and tabacco…
but not with food addiction.. I still have to eat.. and to someone that LOVES food and is addicted to it.. there is no half ass way to do it.. all of nothing..yes , I eat all…everything.. and then afterwards I feel guilt..shame.. and despair.. which in turns makes me want to eat more to make me feel better..its a vicious circle..one that is difficult to break..but I am trying..
I started attending OA, Overeaters Anonymous …I attend the phone meetings.. it helps me be more aware..of what I am eating.. and allows me to be accountable..this helps me..my family still doesn’t get it.. nor my friends.. and I understand that. it’s really ok..I need to get through this..breakthrough my addiction myself..and with GOD.. at my side..
I hope that one day people who have a food addiction will have a place to get help..a outreach program..even a in house program to learn how to eat again.. I am going to beat this food addiction.. even if I feel that it is the hardest addiction on earth to kick.. after all I can drive down one block and find a fast food joint..just waiting to help me get my food fix! Hell they even have Dollar menu …that I can always afford something to fill my need…I get to walk the isle at Walmart and find just about any food that I want to get my fix..and if I am lucky..they are giving out samples… and being the kind person that I am.. sometimes they will give me seconds! Every second of every day food is on my mind.. every where I look..on TV on Bill boards..in Magazines.. I can find food porn.. and something new that could help me stay in this addiction!
But I want out… I have to get out.. I need to get out..I want out! So step by step. I will fight back.. I am stepping up and taking responsibility for my choices…I am eliminating many unhealthy things.. I started with Diet Coke.. I use to drink 6=8 a day.. I have been diet coke free for three weeks now.. and I feel better already.. my heartburn at night has stopped.. and I thirst for water now.. the colder the better! Now I have eliminated fast foods..I don’t go.. I can’t go.. I don’t have control..it’s not good for me.. so I am removing it from my life…period..next will be packaged food…all packaged foods..then white flour…baby steps..tomorrow is my first face to face OA meeting .. and I am scared shitless! But I am going… I am not sure what to expect…but I am looking forward to this very much.. the phone meetings are great..but this will be even better! wish me luck.. .and to those who are suffering with food addiction.. please reach out to someone.. a friend. pastor ..doctor…ask for help… and find OA ..go to the internet and find the phone numbers and conference call code to participate..it does help..
Cheers!

Choosing a food plan just for you!

maxresdefault

I know I am probably get a lot of flack for my choice of food plan to follow..but your not me..no food plan is for each of us..if it was we would all be skinny! We have to figure out the road we want to take..count calories,low fat, low carb, paleo,weight watchers, tops, clean eating..no matter which one you choose..it has to be personalized for you..I’ve choosen low carb..because I can eat…there I said it.. I can eat real food..and not feel deprived. I love eggs..( ask me that in two months) I love meat.. oh I will miss bread and pasta..and sweets..but I wanted to cut out sugar..and white flour..I have experimented with cutting back on flour and do notice a big change in how I feel. Also I have done Atkins before.. I lose a considerable amount of weight. But had a false sense of security that I would never gain it back..and didn’t work on a Lifetime Maintenance plan. Big mistake on my part. And I have since understood the importance of maintenance in weight loss. No matter what plan you choose..you must always figure out and follow a maintenance plan of some kind. If not.. you will be where I am and doing it all over again!
I am all for convenience in the beginning weeks of following my food plan. .on days I work I just want to grab something quickly. And still stay on my program.. Atkins allows that! And tons of choices for me to choose from.
atkinsmeals

Atkins dinners are a big help for me.. And they taste great! I haven’t met one I didn’t like.. Right now they are a little costly..but I think they are worth it! Tonight I had the Atkins Italian-Style Pasta Bake.. YUMMY! I enjoyed every bite! I hope Atkins will continue to add to this line of products..my only word of caution is that you must limit the number of these you have a day. or It can slow down your weight loss. Atkins has a line of Protein bars.. Protein Drinks and even candies..
strawberryprotein
mmchchip</a They can help you through any sweet attack..and the protein drinks are to die for! Serve over a big glass of ice..and yummo!…The protein bars fit in my purse for food attacks and late meetings..stopping my hunger! And the best thing is that I stay on track! No trips to the vending machine or coffee shop! just remember to use in moderation!

I will be featuring my review’s on each new Atkins product that I try… nope I’m not a ATKINS paid spokesperson..but maybe one day I could be! Right now I will leave that to…….Sharon!

I’m Back!

balanced22Ok, Ok, I know it’s been awhile since I have posted on here.. but I am still alive and kicking! I started back to a “anormal” job..and now that I don’t have all of the free time in the world…blogging has taken a back seat..to life..
Since we last visited ..I have had my mom come and stay…and then we made a road trip to take her home to Ohio.. company came again to visit..did I mention My job….and little free time.. Now that summer is over and I am getting back into the swing of things..I have returned to the blogging world..

Don’t think for one minute that I forgot about my followers.. Every new dish I made I thought ..Oh dear..I should be sharing this!…and everytime I had a victory or a trying time.. I thought of you..! But with the lap top packed away..and limited time avaliable.. It fell through the crack of “LIFE”!

So what have I been up to??? Still eating Vegan style..and trying to come up with new ideas and new ways to fix my food..it’s fun.. and challenging at the same time..Eating at work is hard.. for me at least… People are always asking me what did you bring today.. another salad??? HAHAH!…I feel the pressure to fix gourmet meals for my lunch just to show them..that I am not just about salad.. and then I thought..so what if I am all about salad.. so what.. if I am enjoying it ..who cares… I still get the ” oh she is the one who doesn’t eat meat! LOL!.. ( I know there is a dirty hidden thought there, but I ignore them..)

This past weekend was a challenge for me.. My nieces and friends came to the house on the way to the beach for a week.. It’s become a yearly tradition.. One of my favorites.. it’s 24 hours of love ..talking.. and eating!! My son Michael is a accomplised “CHEF”….his specialty is…smoked meat.. yes I said it.. smoked meat.. My nieces request his Smoked briskett, and Carolina BBq every year..they love it.. and yes I do miss it..but I am ok with it..so Mike made the meat..and I made the baked beans…cooked all day in the slow cooker…even though I forgot to serve them at dinner..because we had so much food on the table.. but it was all good..cuz they take all the left overs to the beach! I baked potatoes…and maked rosemary and garlic corn on the cob…Mike made his famous Coleslaw…and dessert was ice cream with different toppings..

When they first arrived they were starving and the food wasn’t ready yet….so I set out a snack plate for them.. with my very own canned garlic pickles…spicy pickles…cannied jalapenos..peach slasa…figs…and assorted cheeses…and crackers…just because I am Vegan…doesn’t mean I still can’t provide them with the things I know they will love…it’s a balance..serving them my Vegan canned goods..and my home grown figs…was a trade off..

They loved the canned goods and I sent a good supply to the beach with them…now I need to restock..next weekend will be a canning weekend..

As I mentioned we had ice cream for dessert… Toppings were..chocolate fudge..caramel..and fresh peaches with a walnut and aguave syrup ..and fresh strawberries and blueberries..as well as tiny brownies..simple but good..

I will be sharing the canning recipes later..I think you will enjoy them..
Hope you have all been doing well.. and are able to find the balance in your life.. you need to enjoy it..!
Cheers!

My ever changing plan

Learning to life a healthy lifestyle can be a trying time. It’s not cut and dry at all.. It is a ever changing… learning as much as you can along the way.. and adapting to you. Plant based lifestyle is my goal.. however I learned quickly that it can be difficult to go from Bad eating habits of a lifetime to 100% change.

I am not beating myself over this.. I am living a healthy lifestyle..which is a 360 turn around for me.. I have given up all meat..and eggs..I still eat a tiny amount of cheese..and a tablespoon of oil for stir fry now and again. I don’t eat processed food in packages..But do eat canned beans and vegetables , if I do not have fresh or frozen. When I am at someone else’s home , I don’t balk at what they are serving.. I look around and figure out my best options. Sometimes I feel I am eating too much bread..so I am trying to monitor this . The last week I didn’t feel like I got enough fresh veggies.. so I have started to write down what I am eating.. and pushing for more and more veggies.. I do ok at night but during the day..can be difficult.

I think the take away from this is that you need to stop and think about what you are eating anytime you change your patterns.. When you do this, you need to monitor yourself and see if it’s working for you.. and if it’s not figure what adjustments you need to make. It’s really all about you.. and what works for your life.
Also as I try and educate myself on healthy eating, I find more ideals that I want to try..

We all need to drink more water..I think I get my fair share in.. daily, but have changed things up a little..by starting my day with TWO glasses of water to get me going! By noon I can ususally get in another two bottles..and another two before dinner…finishing with a big glass before bed…Water is so good for you..you just can’t drink enough! I don’t just figure I am getting enough in my diet.. I make sure I am!

As i said earlier..I need veggies..and fruit. I just started trying to get as many veggies and fruits as possible in my day…I still have my oatmeal for breakfast,but I top it with lots of fruit now.. today I added a whole peach, sliced…5 fresh strawberries and a handful of blueberries.. It was very filling! And I felt good getting all that fruit in .. I was so full I didn’t need a snack in the morning.. it carried me through to lunch.. lunch is usually on the run.. with foods I know I can have.. but today I took the time.. made a big ole Kale salad..with sunflower seeds, raisins…and carrots..again a great way to get in my veggies.. and very filling..

With a little planning I was able to really BOOST my veggie and fruit intake..mindful eating is a great thing..
Although I am not completely plant based.. I know I am on the road to there..and doing my best along the way.
Taking my time..and carefull planning will get me there.

Faux fried chicken bites! YUMMO!

tofuch6

This Faux fried chicken is crazy good folks!!! I can’t believe it’s not Chicken!! It is just as flavorful as a piece of your grandma’s best Fried chicken on a Sunday afternoon! And NO CHICKEN’S were killed to make it!! This is one for the recipe vault folks! Your children, grandchildren and even adults will love this recipe.. and it’s quick and easy!! Your kids and grandkids will ask for these over and over..so much better than those pressed chick nugget things at some fast food joint! And so much better for them!! And well, let’s just say if you don’t tell them it’s tofu.. I won’t mention a thing!!! Sometimes the less they know..they better they eat!

Give these a try…and let me know what you think!!!

First thing first.. go find you some, Better Than Bouillon, No Chicken Base..it is Vegan certified…
sure to pick up the Vegetarian Base one’s.. They have a beef NO BEEF one too!nochicken

Mix The better than bouillon as follows:
Measure out your “Better than Bouillon” base into a small mixing bowl;
– break or mash up the base with a fork or spoon so that it is not one big glob;
– add a very little bit of boiling water to moisten the base and stir,
– keep adding just a little bit of boiling water at a time to the base mixture and stir
If you add “too much” water at one time to the base mixture,
the water and the base tend to remain separated.
Adding just a little bit of boiling water at a time enables you to use mechanical force with your stirrer to better get the water absorbed into the base mixture.

After you mix up enough to “cover” your Amount of Firm TOFU….put it in a container that is sealable… Next take the TOFU about you want to use.. I used about a quarter of my block. Only because I didn’t want to eat tooooo many of these….believe me I would of ate them all ..they are that good!! You can buy TOFU that is already cubed for you ..or if you bought the whole block of TOFU..cut the amount you want off the block..putting the rest back in some clean water and in the frig covered… Take you TOFU and cut into chunks.. and put into the Bouillon broth you have already made up. Let this marinade at least four hours and it is best , if you can let it marinade overnight. After you have marinated it… pat it dry with some paper towels… this is a important step..we want to get some of the extra moisture out of the TOFU… Once this is done.tofuch1.you are ready to dredge into the flower mixture and spices…I used 1 cup of flour …2 Tab Black paper..2 Tab paprika…a dash of salt..I also used a little Texas seasoning from Tex Joy…I dredge the tofu, let it sit for about five minutes and then dredge it again…tofuch2 in a frying pan on the stove I placed..a small amount of refined coconut oil. This is best sometimes the regular coconut oil is a little too strong for frying. Get your oil nice and hot and start dropping in the Floured TOFU pieces..tofuch4.now just like “fried” chicken.. it takes time.. using a medium to low heat..let the tofu pieces brown..I used a wooden spatula and moved the tofu over once on each side.. this takes patients.tofuch4.but it will be worth it.. once the TOFU is golden brown ,remove from pan and drain on a paper towel…serve immediately.tofuch6.you can use any dipping sauce you fancy.. I like mustard with a little honey for mine..tofuch9 I hope you enjoy these.. please write and let me know how you liked them! And don’t forget to like my blog so you can follow me!!
Chow!
