Have you been using nutritional yeast? It's nice for some "cheesy" flavor and I think pretty good for you. That Mmmm Sauce I posted a while back uses it.

Yes, we've tried nutritional yeast, Daiya brand "mozzarella cheese," some soy hot dogs, fake butter, and different kinds of "burgers." Unfortunately, we've come to the conclusion that this just isn't working for us. We both feel so tired and sore, and the only thing that's changed is our diet. We're going to finish the month out with vegetarian dieting instead (which is what I was doing before, but it will still be hard for Sean to turn down sausage and steak!). We discussed it at great length over the weekend, and decided that we couldn't compromise our health for the pride of finishing out the month... That being said, Sean thinks he'll probably stay vegetarian even after the month is up, and perhaps just allow himself a "cheat" meal every couple weeks to a month or so to satisfy that craving (though I think after a month or two, he'll stop craving it so much, and it just won't taste the same if he DOES eat meat).

Sorry if we disappointed anyone (I know we're a little disappointed in ourselves), and props to anyone who can keep up a healthy vegan diet and their mental and physical health!

I don't think it should be disappointing to anyone. You tried something new, so you should be applauded! Also, you're smart enough to realize that it isn't working for you and are going to try something else.

If someone is disappointed in you and your man deciding that is not the right diet for you, that is their trouble not yours! Firstly, those who judge are general not trying to help. Second, diet is a completely personal thing.  I have been struggling with what is the right thing for me to eat for a long time. Still not sure I have it right LOL.  I do think part of my trouble being a veg in the first place is I am very allergic to soy....but didn't know it.  It turns out, my most comfortable diet is also related to my blood type. All I'm trying to say, is that everyone is different. No one has the right to decide what anyone is going to eat. We all have to find that for our selves. Food is related to race, environment, sensitivities, economics, peer pressure, and personal beliefs. No one has the same requirements as another.

Sorry...I guess i have strong feelings about this topic Grin

I think I forgot to share with you guys, but I signed up for a CSA/Farm Share really close to my house! I'm so excited! We did a CSA a few years ago and it was huge...we split a share with a friend, and then another friend bought 1/3 of our half share and the two of us still couldn't eat it all! This one is much more affordable and there is a program where I am able to pay them weekly rather than all up front like most CSA's I've looked into. Also, Bob's Red Mill (local company) donates to this program, so every week besides our veggies we will get a bag of grains or beans from Bob's!

-pokes head in and looks around- Helllllllooooooo? Anybody home?

Sorry, it looks like it's been eerily quiet around here. I'm hoping it's because you've all been as busy as I have! (But I also hope you've still found time to eat healthy!)

So I thought I'd share my breakfast with you this morning (well, it's lunch time now, but whatever).

I present to you: Toast with Ricotta and Banana



2 pieces of Whole Wheat Toast with Part-Skim Ricotta Cheese, and about 2/3 of a Banana (the rest of the banana went to the guinea pigs, who were happy to oblige finishing it off for me!)

In other news, we finally finished up the rest of the all-purpose white flour and have switched over to whole wheat flour. We bought whole wheat spaghetti in preparation to switch over (have about 1 more meal's worth of the normal spaghetti noodles). We've been looking at sugar alternatives for when the time comes (still have a lot of sugar. Need to make some baked goods for a bake/yard sale tomorrow anyway, so some will get used up). Also, we're hoping to harvest our first romaine lettuce from the garden this week for salad! Yay!

How have you all been doing with eating healthy? Any meals you wanna share?

I'm here and drooling over your creation!  I love bananas!

I am prepping my garden beds...got lettuce planted and growing already and this year, I am growing Swiss Chard and Kale...I am going to try Yukon gold potatoes again (they rotted last year because of record rain!)...I love this time of year and summer because of homegrown healthy foods we grow on our own...

Light, spring recipes...I will write them down when we start making things...

I am COMPLETELY off the wagon, but hoping to hop back on!

I have allowed stress and too many tasks to override my healthy intentions.

I have also come to the conclusion that I am a carb addict and I don't crave a lot of veggies because they are not sweet. Bitters make me blanch....

Help me!  Tongue

I am considering doing a juice detox/fast after watching Fat Sick and Nearly Dead on Netflix. In some ways, eliminating all food for a few days would be simpler than choosing which foods because I am failing. 

My job is a toxic wasteland of candy bars, chips and pop....all for free and as much as I want.  Tongue Tongue

I find myself automatically eating candy bars without thinking or caring. I tell myself that my job is stressful and I NEED the calories to get through it. This is bull-but I still use that reason.

I am eating out a LOT. I feel crappy about it but I also live by myself and I have a hard time motivating myself to cook. I do great cooking/making meals and then the seductive takeout burger or flyer stares at me, demanding I forget my salad and insisting I eat it instead.

What is wrong with me? I feel like a slave to food. I have tracked my calories in the past but my work computer won't interface with fitday.com so I can't do it at work. I have tried journaling my calories at work but it's not the same as a tally.
I'm tired of feeling so crappy about the way i eat and the way I feel. I want to be as healthy as everyone thinks I am.

Any thoughts? I just feel mired and stuck.  Embarrassed

My parents actually started doing something that might help you! You said you just don't feel motivated to cook all the time. Well, on Sundays, my parents make food for themselves and also for a neighbor about 2 doors down. On Wednesdays, they return the favor and bring food to my parents. It's nice because my parents have a hard time cooking during the work/school week, and the neighbors are grateful for a meal on the weekends. Also, my mom said that it means they're eating stuff they never would have cooked for themselves (and vice versa), and they don't have as many leftovers. Maybe you could start doing this with a couple neighbors, and then you won't have to cook/worry about food every single night of the week?

Also, if you want something sweet, maybe try finding some yummy fruits instead of veggies? I usually eat fruits for breakfast and lunch, and save my veggies for a salad with dinner. It's hard to munch on veggies at work (except maybe carrots or celery, but I don't really like those). Fruits are good for you, and they're usually pretty filling.

---

I sort of walked off the end of the wagon today... Since I heard about the Taco Bell taco made with the doritos I REALLY wanted to try it. First meat I've had in three months, and the first fast food in four or five. It was yummy, but now my body hates me. This will not be a repeated experiment! I feel much better after having a strawberry/banana smoothie and some whole wheat spaghetti for dinner.
