Week #3 as a vegetarian is complete. As the weeks go by, I do not crave meat as much.
My energy levels are still very high, and I still got in my normal exercise routines. One thing I am finding is that I’m eating more. I’m snacking at least every hour and a half, and my portions during meal times are larger as well. I think it’s because I exercise so much that I need to replace the energy expended during my workouts.
I’m really looking forward to Thursday night. My wife and I will be meeting up with Samantha Gladisha from www.holisticwellness.ca. She is a Holistic Nutritionist and a Hatha Yoga Instructor. While she prepares us dinner, she will be educating us on eating healthy, nutrient dense foods and answering our questions.
Some new things and some favorites from the past week…
Non GMO pulled tofu in BBQ sauce, with a side of baked sweet potato fries and boiled beets with walnuts
Coconut chia granola is the newest addition to my oatmeal.
It goes well with everything else I pack in there… frozen blueberries, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts and cinnamon .
A couple breakfasts last week, we enjoyed steel cut oats.
In them, we added cinnamon, almond milk and some maple syrup. Yummy!
Tossed it in the crock pot at night, and it was all ready for breakfast the next morning.

These were awesome. A yummy treat.
Almonds, cashews, walnuts, dates, cocoa, frosting made from raw cocoa and coconut butter.
