Eat for Life and Eat for Health

Sorry folks for the long overdue posting. Life happens and then I hibernate. I figured that it is time to come out of my cave and try to adapt to the life around me. While hibernating I put on a few pounds, sunk myself into a drab attitude, and now it is time to do something about it. I will be back to work full time very soon, school was put on hold by necessity, and I can only thank God for my dear husband, Brandie, Erin, and our bishop for their support and needed strength through this. Out of my cave I am, but I need to work to stay out. I have been reading all of your blogs even if I didn't comment and love you all. I am thankful to have you all in my life. That said I have been reading Dr. Fuhrman's books Eat for Health volumes 1 and 2. Already being a vegan the concept is easy to understand and it is full of healthy reminders and yummy recipes for all of us vegans and nonvegans. While in my cave, cookies and potato chips, toast with earth balance, and onion dip made with tofutti sour cream were my staples. Vegan yes, Good idea, NO! I told DH the other day that I am a vegan who has forgotten how to eat veggies. WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH ME! ENOUGH ALREADY! So here is a yummy breakfast that does not include sour dough bread or earth balance. :o)

My body is having a party right now after drinking this delicious smoothie from Dr. Fuhrman's Eat for Health book 2. Frozen blueberries, an orange, dates, banana, and ground flax seeds.
It is really good. I don't have a super blender and I can only imagine how perfect this would be if I had a Vitamix, but having a little texture never hurt anyone. :o)
Love you all and know that you are very important to me.

Don't forget to hug someone, you never know when they just might need help getting out of their cave.
