Tonight! How about a fusion meal? Korean kimchi, sesame seed oil and tofu with a mix of fresh asian veggies! Hey, I’m gaining a few pounds! Could it be my awesome homebrew?
I was 204 this morning. Oh well. I ran a 10k on Saturday. It could be muscle mass. I’m working out with weights more. Or, it could be the beer. Yeah, it’s probably the beer!
Saturday we enjoyed some family time watching the documentary, “Fed Up!” It’s a revealing look at how we are being herded onto the path to obesity by eating processed foods, sugar and watching deceptive advertising. The power of the food industry is unlimited. They control our government through legal bribes, known as campaign donations. It’s so important now to support efforts from The Young Turks to get money out of politics. Check out out Wolf PAC and sign the petition!
In the meantime, you can do a lot to remove sugar from your daily diet. Choose real food instead of processed foods. Ditch junk food. Exercise daily. Encourage your friends and family to live clean and healthy lives. Support your local farmers too!
Okay, that’s my rant. The soup I fixed for lunch is a slight variation on my tried and true recipe. I cannot eat enough of this. It is so tasty!
For dinner, I got back to basics and fixed a monster romaine lettuce salad. For protein, I added some slices of soft tofu.
Have a healthy weekend!
Stick with what works! This morning’s oatmeal has cashews, walnuts, pumpkin seeds, mixed berries and shredded coconut. I’m going for a long run this morning after this digests. Have a great weekend!
This morning’s breakfast is steel-cut oatmeal with berries, nuts, seeds, banana and coconut chips. I’ve sweetened it with organic maple syrup and a bit of vanilla extract. Damn that’s good!
Okay! Tonight I loaded up a pan-load of veggies, tofu, garlic, onions and seasoning to make a spicy tofu stir fry. Of course we have a ton of homegrown peppers just waiting to be picked in the garden out back. I also added a healthy serving of Korean gochujang (hot pepper paste) to use as sauce for the peppers. I ate too much!
Beer too. Cheers!
Sticking to the plan that works has worked for me so far. I enjoy my oatmeal for breakfast, salad and/or soup for lunch and a vegan stir fry for dinner. In between I snack on nuts and fruits. I try to eat a couple of oranges a day and at least one banana. Lately I’ve been lifting weights. So, I’ve added in a plant-based protein shake to give me an extra boost of 21 grams of protein a day.
For this stir fry, I used frozen asian veggies, tofu, imitation chicken, red pepper flakes and fresh peppers from our garden. I like the spice!
Look! No beer or wine!
Have a healthy day!
