My starch casserole: I mix black beans, brown rice and sweet potatoes together into a mash with spices such as salt, pepper and chipotle powder. Sometimes I change out the beans and the rice and potatoes but to me I get to eat a lot of starches so I call it a starch casserole. LOL
I'm doing good. 2 nights ago I had some vegan cookies. I'm not sure what happened. There is really nothing to it. I was in the store. Told myself not to get the cookies and I've been doing so good and look what I'm doing and before I knew it I was sitting at home eating cookies. It was such a conscious effort. LOL...I didn't have any adverse reactions to the cookies so of course the next day the cravings were in higher gear and I wanted more cookies and ice-cream this time. I went through the same thought process but this time I was able to put the cookies and ice-cream down and not bring any home from the store. I did have 2 of my husbands vegan chips and decided they weren't that good anyways. It's funny how it happens sometimes. I'm so much more consciously aware of what goes in my mouth and what is food versus what is junk!!
It's a beautiful California day. I may go out for a bike ride or a walk. I love when the weather is like this. The birds are chirping, everyone is outside--just a lovely day.
Meal 1 (A+): corn on the cob
