Day 2832:

Good morning people! Sitting down to type and realize how much I miss it. I have my computer, my fudge fat bomb, and my bulletproof coffee or keto coffee.


Recipe:

1 serving of your favorite coffee (black)

1 tbsp of coconut oil

2 tbsp of coconut milk (or heavy cream for you non-vegans)

5 drops of liquid stevia (I use chocolate flavor)

To switch things up a bit, sometimes I like to add in a tbsp of (unsweetened) cocoa powder or a tbsp of peanut butter powder.

A note for that one, I like to roll it in unsweetened coconut flakes!


 

I had off yesterday, which is normally my food prep day, but I didn’t do it so I get to rush around and do it before work today, lol. I do food prep meals for me and the husband so that when it comes time for work, it’s just grab and go. He usually makes himself a couple of chicken breasts, mini meatloaf, steak strips for riceless stir-fry, and other things along those lines, plus his side veggies. Mine is way easier. I usually have tofu or seitan on most days with zucchini noodles, spinach, roasted mushrooms, kale, etc. I actually really like doing the meal prep so that I can just grab my lunch and 1-2 fat bombs and head on my way.

I don’t feel very restricted surprisingly. The only differences that I really made was to take bread, rice, and pasta out of my diet and add in more avocado and coconut oil. I can honestly say that I feel good. I thought I felt amazing when I switched to a plant-based diet but this feels even better.

This is my lunch today! Kale, mushrooms, onions, sauteed in coconut oil, salt, pepper, and hot pepper flakes with a side of Beyond sausage. It’s gonna be a yummy day!!!!!

 

It’s so hard and so frustrating to get through to people. I see so many people around me every day that are sick, overweight, struggling with mental health issues, diabetes, etc. It is hard to see that and not want to shake people and say STOP DOING THIS TO YOURSELF! It is an easy change. I’ve lost 40+ pounds and kept it off. I am no longer pre-diabetic, my blood pressure returned to normal, since I am not consuming animal products, my cholesterol is only at 115 (anything 150+ is a very high risk for heart attack). People make fun of me and tell me that they have grass clippings for me to eat, they ask me where I get my protein, if I’m nutrient deficient, blah blah blah… but you know what? I’m okay with that. The whole time they are mocking me I’m just laughing on the inside. The average life expectancy of a vegan vs. an omnivore… 10 more years for the vegan. Mock away! My food is filling, delicious, and it’s fuel for my body. I don’t need something else to die in a violent way to sustain myself. ❤

Day 2516: So day 6 of going full vegan. I feel a lot better right now. I don’t feel as sluggish, and as much as people make fun of me for deciding to do this, but I don’t care because I’m doing this for me. I’m really excited about it because last time that I did this, there was either not many options, or the options tasted like cardboard. Breakfast is my favorite meal again. I hated eating breakfast because if I eat too early, it makes me feel sick. Having to make things from scratch gives be some time to adjust to being awake and I found that I don’t feel nauseous when I eat. Yesterday I had this yummy breakfast. Tofu, mushrooms, and green onion sauteed with sesame oil over some toasted everything bread.

This morning I was in the mood for some scrambled eggs but I wasn’t about to give in. I got this. I’m motivated! Alternative:

Eggs: Extra firm tofu, turmeric, onions, onion powder, garlic powder, basil, salt, and black pepper.

Meat: Italian seasoned tofurky sausage

Bread: Rosemary and herb foccacia bread with a garlic and herb jam.

Found the recipe on Pintrest and I have to give it a 9/10. Pretty close to tasting like the real thing. The texture was spot on which was good since some people are turned off by textures.
