…And a Liter o’ Cola

This evening, after much deliberation, I drove across our tiny town to the local Safeway to get Brad and me a couple of their delicious deli sandwiches for dinner. Surprisingly, the deli counter wasn’t busy at all. The woman working there took my order, which was straight off the very basic menu board, and started … Continue reading

Debriefing on Vegging Out, Day 1

I’m not sure how often I’ll be doing food confessions. Probably not all the time because I’d like to keep some readers if I can. However, since this was the big kickoff, here’s the rundown on what I lived on today: This morning I had coffee with TJ’s soy creamer and sugar, then some whole-wheat … Continue reading

Three Months of Vegging Out, Day 1

Happy September, everybody! I’m off on my latest new beginning. On today’s to-do list: going shopping for some groceries, supplements, and other supplies that I’ll need for this project. I’m currently fueled by the following: Plus coffee (well,┬áduh…). In my effort to keep my food plant-based, I checked the label of this bread and it … Continue reading

Equal Time

Hey, I know I can be a little bit cynical and negative about how people act when they find out someone’s vegging it, but I just wanted to mention a nice experience today where I felt like nobody thought it was any big deal, including me. Brad and I had lunch at a sports bar … Continue reading

Lipstick-On-a-Pig Pizza Night

Yesterday wasn’t a banner day on the healthy eating front. Too much was consumed, too little burned off…but it was lovely, kickback Sunday, and man, the doctored-up frozen pizzas we made for dinner were worthy of the excessive consumption. I highly recommend this method of pizza enjoyment! We took cheap frozen pies (cheese for me, … Continue reading

Kale Is the New Black

In my quest for healthy foods that rise above the level of “I don’t hate it,” I’ve been trying a lot of new stuff. I’ve noticed that recipes including kale are all over the place lately, but I had never tried the stuff until yesterday. Kale is supposedly a good plant source of calcium, so … Continue reading
