Hellooo world! How are you doing today? ;)
First of all, how’s my new layout? When I was editing the comments, this layout caught my eyes. I checked it out, and boom! It just happened. (I was going to change it when I had 100 posts, but that’s not going to be any sooner!) Twenty Ten is the layout, and I think it’s pretty cute!
Second of all, thank you all for leaving a comment! It makes me really happy (and glad to blog) when I know there are people out there reading this! I extremely appriciate all of you who took your time to write a little something for me to see!
Here’s the confession for today:
Eating healthy is NOT expensive.
We had a class discussion about how eating healthy food generally cost more money. I certainly didn’t think it was true. What’s your thought? Is eating healthy expensive? Or is it totally affordable?
It came in a nice, mini-size box.
And this box was covered with a coupon.
Nice! Overall, this was very crunchy, and it had a nice honey flavor to it. If you like cereal, you should give it a try! ;)
Boom! Look at THESE! I FINALLY found Heart Thrive suncakes that Michal has been talking about waaaaaaaaay too much. ;) Discovered them at Whole Foods for the first time ever. (the near-by WFs doesn’t carry them. Boo!) :( But with them, I found a brownie bar from Frankly Natural Bakers.
Date: Very dry, but VERY filling!
Chocolate: More ingredients than Dates. Still good, with a hint of chocolatiness.
Size-wise, this baby is pretty big. I was surprised! :)
Yum! This is a really good snack if you’re really hungry, but you don’t quite want to eat a meal. ;) We discovered this at $2.29. Is that cheap, expensive, or normal for this product? Anyone know?
Dang. This was dryyy-y. And I actually tasted grape in this baby! It was quite surprising, because it was more towards the bottom of the list. :O
And I’ve been enjoying creating chocolate cups for the last few days.
Smily face on the left, sprinkled cashews on the right.
Middle filled with Almond Butter.
A lot healthier than Reese’s pieces!
Made with Cocoa Powder + Agave + Coconut Oil.
And it’s interesting how you ARE what you eat. When I eat stuff that’s “bad”, I feel rotten. SO, I need to snap out of this habit and start eating “good” food.
Today was a pretty good start.
Yeay for plants! From the bottom left (clockwise): Combination of Burdock Root, Yam/Konjac (love!), Kelp, and Soybeans cooked in a crockpot, Brown Rice, Miso Soup with tofu, seaweed, sprouts, and a stir-fry with sprout and mushrooms.
Eating a plant -based diet really increased my awareness of what I put in my mouth. It makes me think about food and where/how it came from/to me. I feel healthier, and I need less sleep. :)
Also, going vegan made me realize what I’m good with and not good with. The things I’m not good with are…
- Nuts (Almonds, Cashews, Peanuts, etc.)
- Cocoa Powder
- Soy Yogurt
- Chocolate Chips (actually, eating too much at once makes my skin itch real badly.)
I’m sure I’ll discover more as I live. But on the other hand, I’m good with these things:
- Fruits (Apples and Mangos)
- Vegetables (Spanich, Kale, Carrots, etc.)
- Intense DDR
- Odwalla Superfood
I’m honestly glad that I’m finding out what’s good and what’s not. (though it sucks when you find out that it’s not good with you and it’s not cooperating with you) But then, I know how to fix the problems at this point, so it’s going to be all good. :)
What food does your body like? Do you know what it dislikes?
Like usual, thaaaaaaaaaaaaanks for coming! :)
P.S: Katie is having a Shopping Spree Giveaway!
