Today’s weight: 161.2. That is a an 11.8 loss in 4 weeks and 2 pounds since last week. And this past week was challenging because it included travel for work and dinner out with friends. But I stuck with the program and everything worked out fine. I can’t wait for another week of healthy eating!
I was eating my lunchtime salad and it was so beautiful I just had to take a picture. The purple cabbage is what really makes it. I have a head of purple cabbage in my fridge and every time I make a salad I slice off a small wedge, chop it up and add it… Read More Salad Beauty
Today’s weight was 163.2 lbs so I have lost 9.8 pounds since starting three weeks ago.
What is a nutritarian doing at Ronny’s Steak House? First of all — it’s not what you think. Ronny’s Steak House isn’t some fancy place — it is an old-school Chicago restaurant that serves big platters of made-from-scratch Chicago favorites in a semi-fast food environment. Even before becoming a nutritarian I was not a big meat… Read More Ronny’s Steak House
I’ve tried different ratios and this is the one I like. It is amazing to me how far 1/4 cup of oats can go! The apple gives it sweetness without added sugar, especially when your taste buds have adapted to not eating things with lots of sugar. I think a dash of vanilla would also be great… Read More Cinnamon Apple Oatmeal

Today’s weight was 164.8 which means I have lost three pounds this past week. Again this is amazing because all I have done for the past week is stuff myself with fruits and vegetables and beans. This means I have lost 8.2 pounds so far. Dr. Fuhrman promotes something on his website called “10 in… Read More Weigh-in 1/15/2017
I made this last night and it turned out so well that I wanted to add it to my recipes. I have actually tried several recipes these past two weeks that did NOT make it to the blog. No utter fails, just things I want to try making a little differently to see if they could be… Read More Creamy Mushroom Soup
It’s taco salad day! Obviously this salad is very different than my taco salads of the past, but I’m excited about it nonetheless. For the dressing I mixed together 1/2 cup of Chi Chi’s salsa (the lowest salt brand at my store), a teaspoon of taco seasoning, and the juice of one lime. It tastes… Read More Today’s Menu 1/13/2017
Last night after dance class I had some “Prince Edward’s Medly” as a snack, so I’m including it in today’s photo since I’m likely to have it again tonight. “Prince Edward’s Medly” is a frozen vegetable mix I got at Aldi. I’ve never seen a mix like this before — it has green beans, yellow… Read More Today’s Menu 1/11/17
A few new things today: oatmeal for breakfast and Moroccan Stew Wrap for supper. This seems like two grain servings but I’m counting each one as a half serving. For the oatmeal I used 1/4 cup old fashioned oats, 1/2 chopped apple, about 3/4 cup water, cinnamon, and three chopped dates which I microwaved for… Read More Today’s Menu 1/10/2017
All weekend I couldn’t stop thinking about cantaloupe, and today I finally have some (buried under the strawberries) along with, of course, a nice big salad. Supper is not pictured because I expect to be home for supper. Breakfast, a banana and an orange, are also not pictured due to having already been eaten when… Read More Today’s Menu 1/9/2017
Today’s weight was 167.8, which means I have lost 5.2 pounds in this first week of the six-week-plan. During my days of calorie counting I was happy if I lost one pound in a week — so this number seems amazing, especially since I basically spent the whole week stuffing myself with food. So far… Read More Weigh-In 1/8/2017
I had two friends over for dinner last night and I kept it nutritarian style. I served a Moroccan-style stew with chick peas, cauliflower and carrots in a tomato-based sauce, and large green salad. I didn’t have my normal lunchtime salad that day so when I was setting the table I was looking at the salad bowl wondering… Read More The Plate is for Salad
