Switching To A Plant Based Diet Day 10

No, you didn’t miss any posts. I have been focusing on getting my videos up on TikTok and YouTube, and I haven’t posted them here. I think I am only going to post the videos here when I have something to add to the message of the video.

Today is a perfect example. I wanted to explain some of the vegetables I am enjoying and why I chose to eat them.

The first vegetable I’m going to talk about is the humble sweet potato. These orange tubers of deliciousness are chok full of vitamins and minerals fantastic for your health. I find them to be delicious with just the right amount of sweetness to match the other vegetables I enjoy.

I can eat these every day no problem. A cool trick I learned is to cook them the night before and leave them in the fridge. It not only enhances the sweetness (I know a subjective view), it also transforms the starch into a resistant starch, which is shown to be extremely beneficial for your gut micro biome.

That’s just one of the many benefits to eating sweet potatoes. I’m happy that I’ve included this little bomb of flavor into my diet, and so are my guts!

Switching To A Plant Based Diet Day 6

No craving for meat today. I just couldn’t resist last night because Popeye’s Chicken Sandwiches are more addictive than crack. I feel like it was easy to get back on track because of the vegetables I eat. I tend to stick with starchy vegetables, because of the way they taste. I can’t stand leafy greens, no matter how much I try. The taste is just disgusting, without making them unhealthy. Not to mention leafy greens always leave me feeling sick.

Where as mashing sweet and russet potatoes together and enjoying some corn and peas is absolutely delicious. I use a little bit of butter in the potatoes, I would use coconut oil but I hate the smell and taste of coconut. I use a little half and half, just a splash to loosen the potatoes up and make them smooth after mashing. The rest is spices to change up the flavor. The ability to bring a new flavor and spice into my vegetables will help stave off flavor fatigue.

I believe I will be successful at keeping to a plant based diet over time, as long as I stick with what is enjoyable to me. That’s going to be key eating this way, as it is in any diet. I won’t be able to succeed if I don’t like what I am eating.

Switching To A Plant Based Diet Day 5

Switching To A Plant Based Diet Day 4

I had a wonderful piece written about how this diet wasn’t so bad, but the ether ate it. Instead just know I did not crave a hamburger today.

Switching To A Plant Based Diet Day 3: I want a burger

And I mean a big one. I want it greasy and dripping with cheese, the bun perfectly toasted. I want to taste sauteed mushrooms and caramelized onions mixing to synergeticly in a secret home made sauce.

I think I will survive this diet, I may even enjoy it at times. It’s a good thing I have Saturdays to look forward to, I really am craving a burger.

Quitting fasting and switching to a plant based diet.

I’ve decided to quit fasting. There is nothing wrong with the practice, if it is working for you then by all means continue. I know from experience that what may work for one individual doesn’t necessarily work for another.

After a long discussion with my health care professionals, we decided fasting isn’t having the effects we hoped for, and my heart health is slowly but surely deteriorating.

It’s funny, I would have thought that not eating every day would be an issue for me, but it wasn’t. I found it actually removed stress from my life and made it easier to enjoy the foods I love. Fasting has offered some benefits to my health, just not the ones that I need.

I need to look at my over all health, and after much discussion I have decided to go with a mostly plant based diet. This is a major challenge and change for me, as I typically don’t like what people consider healthy vegetables.

There aren’t a lot of vegetables I even enjoy. I can count on one hand the vegetables I enjoy. Maybe this will help me to broaden my perspective.

It doesn’t matter. I’m going to do what I need to for me. I have to do something for my health. If that means sacrificing my favorite source of protein and fat, cutting meat from my diet except for one day a week, then so be it. If it means attempting to find a dark leafy vegetable I enjoy, I’m less enthusiastic about that, but I will do what I need to.

I will start to introduce you all to the vegetables I do eat, and why I eat them, over time. Know that I am not giving up on animal products. I will still use butter and milk as healthy fats in my diet. And as I stated before, I will reward myself once a week with the meat I enjoy most.

I know I need to get on top of my health issues. I know I need to keep working to lose weight. I know I have tons of people who love me in my life, and I need to do what I can to keep myself here on this plane of existence for as long as possible.

At the same time, I want to start posting videos every day to my YouTube channel. Short little bits about my struggles and successes. A vlog if you will. I’m want to offer motivation for others in my predicament. I want to help others succeed in their weight loss journey. I know life is better when you attempt to lift others up, rather than ignore their issues and let them suffer. If I can help, I want to help, and I want to see others succeed.

The struggle is real!

I’ve been struggling to get back on track with my intermittent fasting. I have too many friends and family members that just cook excellent meals, and it can be difficult to resist. I wanted to share some strategies I’m using to get back on track after the holidays.

I hope you all have a great day! Keep being awesome, and support indie authors and artists!

What you put out to the world: positive energy attracts positive energy

Or as my wife would say, “Don’t be a dick.”

I just wanted to share my thoughts on positivity, and what you put out in the world. I really believe what you put out is attracted back to you, so keep positive people and push forward!

Building confidence

So I’m a Quality Assurance Specialist at my job, a position I quite enjoy. I help my fellow sales agents communicate with the people we service. I’ve noticed that a lot of them lack confidence on the phone. I wanted to share what I’ve told them to increase their confidence on the phone, and I thought I would share with you. I’d love to hear any advice others would pass along about building confidence.
