After reading the book ‘Fork over Knives Plan‘ and watching the DVD, I decided to try the plant-based diet for myself, and thought that I would give you an update on how I’ve coped with it during my first week.
Well, so far it has been fun and easy, as I’ve only had to focus on my breakfast being plant-based.
A big bowl of sliced fruit, containing; melon, strawberries, blue berries, banana, red and green grapes, and the juice of an orange. A slice of gluten-free toast, and a camomile tea.
Porridge topped with fresh fruit and a drizzle of honey. Now I know that honey is not included in the plant-based diet, but I like the taste of it, and God mentions honey throughout the Bible, so it can’t be bad for me.
Fresh fruit with a dairy-free coconut yoghurt.
“Deliciously Ella Bircher Muesli with apple and raspberry” I made it with hot cashew milk, and it was yummy.
Chia seed porridge made with coconut milk, topped with fresh fruit, and a drizzle of organic maple syrup.
Banana and oat pancakes topped with berries.
Sweet potato flat bread wrap, filled with sliced cherry tomatoes, cucumber, spinach, red bell peppers, and butter beans tossed in a little lemon juice, and seasoned with salt and pepper.
Well, I don’t think my first week went too bad, considering how much I love to eat eggs, fried, boiled, poached or scrambled first thing in the morning. But I’ll have to get a little more creative now that I’ve cut down on them.
This diet has encouraged me to eat a lot more fruit than I usually do, and I do feel better for it.
This coming week I am to focus on a plant-based LUNCH as well as my breakfast. I know it’s going to be a little more challenging, but I’m looking forward to it! I shall keep you posted!
Happy eating everyone! 🥗<<<<<<<<<<<
