Note from Jane: This is the latest in a monthly series by Duffy, who went whole food, plant-based late in 2013 with the goal of losing over 200+ pounds. To see previous posts, choose Duffy Chronicles from the Stories menu.
Today I am thankful for the Word of Wisdom and the freedom it gives me to eat the good things of the earth that the Lord has provided. In the past I tried to force myself to eat certain amounts of animal protein that I didn’t like, restricted carbohydrates, and weighed and measured portions all to no avail. My body feels good when I eat according to the Word of Wisdom.
Two non-scale victories this month include:
1. I stopped eating sugar in my morning oatmeal. Since I started putting a combination of frozen blueberries, strawberries and banana in, I noticed that I no longer need any sugar for sweetness.
2. I am enjoying my steamed vegetables. I’ve been making my lunches out of 3 bubble and squeak patties (see recipe), 2 cups of steamed vegetables, and a plant-based cheesy sauce, most recently using this one: Smoked Paprika Vegan Cheese. While I’m not quite craving vegetables, it is no hardship to eat them. They even taste subtly sweet to me. Yum!
Below are a few pics from this month.
Love and blessings,
