Duffy’s WFPB Journey — August 2014

Duffy-carrotsNote 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,

Duffy

  1. Hi Duffy

    My breakfast is oatmeal with some raisins, strawberries, banana, blueberries and some fresh grapes added in. It is really good.
