What Made Me Jump Off the Cliff?

.....and into being a vegetarian?

Because I was sick and tired of feeling and looking sick and tired!

I'm about three weeks into it and it's been easy so far. I guess it's been easy because after a couple of days of Green Smoothies and Raw Veggies - there was a noticeable improvement in the way I the way I the way I looked. I have wanted to do this for a year, but put it off. There was always another cupcake, enchilada or pizza!

And it gets better with each day. I'm not fully 'Raw'.....probably about 70% by my guesstimate, the rest is based or steamed Veggies. Here's how the day goes....

First thing in my belly - coconut water w/ a squeeze of lime
Green Smoothie - today it was Parsley, Cucumber, Zucchini & a scooped out Lemon
Green Tea
Go about my day
Lunch - munch on whatever raw is in the fridge - today it was carrots, cucumber, goji berries
Early Evening - Green Smoothie of some sort
Dinner - today it was a casserole I made up of Eggplant, Zucchini, Mushrooms, Garlic & Roasted Tomatoes. I baked it all together in a big dish until it bubbled

Oh, and tons of water with lemon or lime squeezed in. YUM!

I eat until I feel full, not stuffed. I do think I'm losing weight - but as I mentioned in a previous post, I'm SCARED of the big, bad scale!

In any case, I'm going to weigh soon and see what improvement is there.

I love feeling this way, I love healing my body and getting healthy. I should have done it long ago. I don't know what was stopping me....well, maybe I do (but that's another blog).

Peace & Green Eating!

Your casserole sounds delicious! I am mainly a vegetarian too and you do get used to it! Hang in there:)

Love fresh veggies, the Green Smoothie sounds so good! The water's so important too. It's amazing how a change of diet can change so much!
