My cooking has definitely changed since I started taking back control of my health and weight. I use very little oil (if at all), and focus on whole foods over processed meat simulations. While I absolutely LOVE the Gardein chikn products, I've pretty much cut them out of my diet, saving them for special meals. I've also cut out a lot of the white flours, and starchy potatoes. I just seem to feel a lot better when I don't eat them even though I very much love them. More lentils and other legumes, less junk food. You get the picture. I'm finding that my body works better without the oils and processed foods. I'm not a crazed health nut, I just like feeling better inside.
Here's some of the deliciousness that I've made lately.
|Spicy lentils, refried beans, and fresh veg on a whole wheat tortilla.|
|Spicy dijon rice with broccoli (altered from the Everyday Happy Herbivore cookbook.|
|Spicy mustard chickpeas with onions from Happy Herbivore Abroad cookbook.|
|Tahini lemon tempeh, chickpeas, broccoli, and cauliflower with fresh herbs.|
Anyway, I hope we see more of each other soon!
