Well, if you thought the debate was Wednesday night, you should have heard what went on last night in my kitchen–and no, we weren’t debating politics, but instead food as it relates to our health. Apparently, we that practice “veganism” are very evangelistic, or at least most of us come across that way. We even have t-shirts that scream it. It got pretty hot in the kitchen and that was well after the stove was turned off! It was really nice to have Peter and Jeffrey over for VFT, though it surely makes us miss Derek even more…
While on the topic of food, it has been almost 3 weeks since I cut out ALL processed foods, and almost all sugar and salt, and reduced my intake of oils, eating almost exclusively vegetables, fruits, beans, nuts and seeds. I have only dropped a pound or 2 (5 is my goal), but I feel great and my blood pressure seems to be considerably lower (though it was never high) and my cholesterol was lower at my last blood donation, last week. I have NO cravings for sweets (didn’t even take a bite of the Oreos I put out, finding my almond milk and banana after dinner shake much more desirable).
Though some might clearly find my eating obsessive, I can’t wait to indulge a bit and try the tofu and tempeh tacos at the Taco Bus, which I will tell you about next week!
There seems to be a day that celebrates most any or everything, and tomorrow is Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day. About 300 parks worldwide will participate. Children are encouraged to bring their own bikes and helmets and members of the International Mountain Biking Association will guide riders around the park. Locally, you can go to Markham Park in Sunrise, from 9-1. For more info contact FLIPANY.org or IMBA.com/Kids.
Thanks for stopping in. Make it a fabulous Friday.
