We’ve been crazy busy in our home lately…. Hubby working late hours, spring cleaning, chasing a 8.5 month old… Life goes by WAY too fast! But the truth is, I haven’t updated because I’ve been waiting for the Mister to update… since he wanted to do this blog together and has only contributed once! And the truth is- I’m STUBBORN, and so is my husband, and our sweet little angel is the exact.same.way.
Lately, she has been working on trying to crawl. She stands by herself, scoots everywhere, pulls herself up on things, can go from belly to sitting, but it’s very stubborn when it comes to tummy time. Only time will tell what happens..
On the flip side, I am starting our family on a new program. My husband will freak out when he sees that I announce this to the world wide web, but I (ahem we!) are starting the 30 day Lean program by Kathy Freston.
This, I am super excited about. I have been waiting for her book to hit kindle edition, and now that it’s out- we are on! Basically it’s a 30 day program that is small steps, transitioning your eating habits into a clean, healthy, vegan, lifestyle. I’d like to go through this journey with you, hoping to update as much as I can For example small steps:
Day 1: Drink 8, 8 oz glasses of water
Day 2: Eat an Apple
Day 3: Subsitute Milk & Butter products for Vegetable Alternatives
Day 4: Throw away your junk food
I am thrilled about this mainly because I have always wanted to eat vegan. The studies supporting what vegan lifestyle does for your body is outstanding, and I truly believe by nature, it is the way our bodies were meant to eat. Now, I don’t mean vegan, let’s just replace your meat and dairy with meat & dairy substitutes, but a truly plant based diet.
Now, the mister is not buying vegan.. He loves meat, and cheese. and all that other stuff that is bad for you. Typical man.
This week I plan on doing her daily changes, but I am also going to make half of my menu planning vegan as well, usually I incorporate 2 meals a week that are vegan, but this week I will do more. I plan on cooking delicious meals such as:
Balsamic Tomato Cous Cous
Vegan Ratatoullie w/ homemade french bread
Chickpea sandwiches w/ roasted asparagus
BBQ Jackfruit with Sweet Potato fries
Pink grapefruit blueberry sorbeit
Yum! I hope to keep you updated on these delicious meals and our journey, and hopefully the Mister will find time to post as well!
