The Year is Half Gone…Where?

Today I’ve been thinking about this blog, and in so doing I’ve been reviewing the blogs that I am following as well as blogs that are suggested by others, and I have come to the realization that I need to be more open and willing to share myself with all of you. I’m very guarded and jaded. It is a difficult path for me to attempt to travel, but I am committed and travel it I will, dag- namit.

So this year I have been trying to be better about the foods I eat in order to better my health and overall fitness. To that end I was encouraged to watch a film which I talked about here earlier titled “What the Health”. This film made me take a look at what I’ve really been eating (most of which I knew better than to do).

This past April I decided to go to the extreme end of the spectrum and try living an all Vegan lifestyle. I love vegetables, beans (except lima), lentils, nuts, Avacado , olives, I could go on but probably shouldn’t. I try to keep an open mind about things and I want to be better about Animal product use.

After about a month, I found that it really wasn’t that hard especially when we used the meat alternatives offered by Boca, Morning Star and the like. I did have one area of difficulty that has been something I’m just not ready to let go of and that my friends is cheese. I appreciate the attempt by Diya, and we even tried a cashew “cheese” sauce when we made vegan nachos. Did I mention I love cheese?

Needless to say some alterations and modifications have occured over the last couple of months to the plan. First, I have eaten meat…Ugh, second, I’ve not given up cheese, third I am committed to a predominately plant based diet so I am eating more towards a vegitarian life choice. Rome wasn’t built in a day right?

The point I want to encourage is that as long as you keep trying, one foot in front of the other, to improve who you are, any needed and wanted alterations or modifications are acceptable, always.

I hope everyone is enjoying their short work week, and that your tomorrows are joyous.
