Wow! Today hits the 2 week mark of my adventure and it is going really well! Although, I do have a craving every now and then, especially for chicken, I’m hardly ever hungry and I have a lot of energy. I needed it today because I had an early morning cooking segment in which I …

Yesterday was one of those “get things done” days and food was high on the to-do list! First, I spent time in the kitchen prepping my Healthy Layered Mediterranean Dip that I was going to be making on today’s WBIR/Mornings with Fox 43. Its more involved than just preparing the recipe in that you have …

It’s January, we are all trying to keep our healthy New Year’s resolutions, and what could be a stumbling block for us? Football! Tonight, we have the National Championship, the NFL Playoffs are going on (Go Titans!), and the Super Bowl is around the corner. What does that mean…food! And usually lots of it is …

Days like today make me so grateful that I have a husband that loves to cook almost as much as I do. Not only did he make a big breakfast for my son and our granddaughters but he made dinner for me later that night as well. Yes, his breakfast was not on my diet …

I woke up very excited today because my granddaughters were coming to visit and spend the night. Needless to say, a two and three year old is not usually overly interested in a plant-based diet (at least not these two..ha, ha). So, I was faced with my first real test….cooking something I used to eat …

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, right? Lucky for me, maybe not!

One of my strategies for making this a successful journey is utilizing leftovers and trying not to waste food. That is what motivated me on Day 7 to finally make breakfast! Not only that, I even made a nutritional snack! I was quite proud of myself! The other day I had made Mexican tofu crumbles …

“Food is our common ground, a universal experience..” James Beard. This quote certainly held true today when during lunch with one of my best friends, Jenny, and then again, while getting my toes manicured with Amy, the subject of food played a major part in the conversation. Food is something we all can talk about…it …

Following a plant-based diet can be difficult if you have a meat-loving spouse.  Yes, I like meat but Jeff LOVES meat!  He is, however, willing to be somewhat helpful in my journey in that he is willing “to try” what I make and will find a way to add to his meals so I don’t have …

Simple is Sustainable…and that is exactly what Day 4 was for me. It was all about leftovers and a simple dinner with no cooking involved. It was Saturday and my husband was currently out of town. So, it was just me, Lily and Mylo (my feline friends) and my best cuddle buddy, Oscar, my little …
