Perfect day, wonderfully healthy. Winning back my health

Today it was about avocado toast for breakfast, soup and steamed broccoli for lunch and a potluck games night dinner.

Today was instead of ground pepper on my soup I ground grains of paradise. Yes I put the grains of paradise in my pepper mill and it worked perfect!

Grains of paradise is a species in the ginger family,closely related to cardamom and imparts a pungent, black pepper-like flavor with hints of citrus. It is is native to West Africa, but is an important cash crop in southern Ethiopia. The Pepper Coast (or Grain Coast) is a historical coasted region named after this commodity (in the current day Republic of Liberia). Very tasty, I bought it years ago at Boulettes Larder in the city (San Francisco).

A Week’s Worth of Meals – April 20 – April 26, 2019

Thought I would pull all the images of the food I ate this week into one place, a week at a glance. This was an awesome week, I ate so well. Risotto, cocoa pinto beans, potato/chickpea/ pineapple hash, poke bowl and so much more. I am now tracking food through Myfitnesspal.

April 25, 2019 – It’s all about yummy: yogurt, fruit, poke bowl and tacos. Moved past “the I am fat mindset”, it’s about making healthy choices for what I put in my body!

Perfect day, wonderfully healthy. Winning back my health

I came to an ah-ha moment, this is my life now, I have transitioned to a new lifestyle. I have lost a lot of weight and I am looking at myself with new eyes, I am not fat, I am healthy, look great. That being said, I left WW because I wanted to go mainstream with my diet and stop counting points. So ah-ha moment, take everything I learned in WW and this is my lifelong lifestyle. It is not a temporary solution to lose weight it is permanent! Yes I will keep track of the food that I eat, no I will not go nuts and weigh myself all the time. It is quite freeing!! No more being obsessed with the scale and thinking I need to lose weight because I am fat, it is because I am healthy this is my life. Beyond the I am fat mindset!

Today it was about yogurt, barley and fruit for breakfast and lunch vegan poke bowl with avocado, pineapple, green onions and carrots.

Dinner: Pinto beans with corn on the cob, guacamole, pico de gallo and steamed cauliflower.
