Decide what to be and go be it...

Nikki. 24. I am a rural social worker, just graduated with my MSW, about to begin working as a mental health professional in a therapeutic day care. My heart belongs to mental health, community based non-profit, play therapy, the gym, aaaaand my husband. My intentions are mostly pure. Striving to find balance in the craziness that is my life.

Made roasted red pepper and tomato soup with black beans, chickpeas, and lentils. Was feeling some oriental flavor so I added some tandoori spice and green curry! Omnomnom so delicious! Oh, and never forget the wine…

Dinner! Spinach, tomato, and beet pasta with peppers, onions, zucchini, and spinach… Om nomnom. Oh and the best part, wine! Vegetarian meals > feeling like shit. Wine > almost everything.

I watched “Forks Over Knives” and it’s safe to say that I’m freaking terrified. I would love nothing more than to give up eating all the cute little things that swim, fly, run, walk, and have faces and mommies and daddies…but they are just so tasty and satisfying. I know that it’s a total lifestyle change, but I have no idea where to begin. Any suggestions?

P.S. If you are trying desperately to give up highly processed and refined grain products, such as pasta, but still have intense cravings for them (like me), simply google Miracle Noodle. It will change your world, scouts honor! Miracle Noodle contains 0 calories, 0 fat, pretty much 0 everything…with less than 1% carbohydrate. It’s made out of soluble plant fiber, so it’s practically the most amazing pasta ever. The company also makes a similar product in rice form. Above is a marvelous infusion of Miracle Noodle, steamed asparagus, and a ton of herbs and spices. Nomnomnom

It is currently the middle of week two of our vegetarian/veganish diet, and what do we have to show for it? An incredible amount of energy, a new outlook on the way we eat and the things we put into our bodies, and a shitload of new, delicious recipes! Oh, and the weight loss doesn’t hurt either…

Behold! Butternut squash, granny smith apples, raisins, and chopped almonds baked with honey, cinnamon, and vanilla. YUM!

Veggie stuffed bell peppers! Delicious vegan/vegetarian meal my husband prepared! Healthy and scrumptious..I could really get used to this healthy eating thing.
