plantain chips

Over 3 weeks. Now I am seeing where my patterns are. I have given up a lot of things (no grain/sugar/gluten vegan plan) and feel a-okay about the idea of giving most things up permanently (i.e. sugars, artificial sweeteners, gluten, diet coke, meat), but I still stress eat. And what do I eat when I stress eat? Plaintain chips, haha. I found some at HEB near the organic items that are roasted with only 15 mg of sodium, 0 sugar/cholesterol/trans fat, 8g fat, 19g carbs. They are great. 11 servings a bag. Tonight, I ate in one sitting 4/5ths of the bag. I feel stuffed. The day before Thanksgiving and I have been super good about the decision I made to boycott the holidays. I feel a bit

Still can't tell? Oh well!

Day 15 of 108. It's actually going pretty strong. I've stayed true to my plan and I'm surprised at how much my body is responding. I don't drink nearly as much water as is recommended, so I need to work on that. I got quite weak during week 1 and 2...but...I have energy now! It started yesterday. Took my first yoga class since I started my plan last night. It was a challenge to get through because I have a janky knee at present and pretty much no upper body strength, but I got a jolt of energy afterwards and ended up jogging around a bit with our doggie afterwards. That was fun. I've actually taught 3 yoga classes since I started my plan and will be teaching another this coming Sund

Gluten-Free/Vegan (Non) Miso Soup

Ingredients: Packed seaweed (from Asian market in the refrigerated section) - only with salt and seaweed (no other ingredients) Vegetable stock Shiitake mushrooms (I wouldn't recommend replacing with regular mushrooms. If no shiitake, just skip 'em - the soup is plenty good without them.) Zucchini Riced cauliflower (frozen) Green onion Avocado Mustard seeds Seasame seeds Garlic powder Lemon juice (1/2 lemon) Nutritional yeast Coconut Aminos Scissors Prep seaweed: Grab 1/2 to 3/4 bowl full of seaweed from the package and soak in water for 30 minutes. After soaked, drain the water and rinse seaweed 2 to 3 times. Cut the seaweed with scissors into 1 inch pieces. Prep veggies: Cut zucchini in

This is me...dealing with grumpy

Day 10 of my 108-Day Reset: A Re-dedication to the Body Temple. I've challenged myself to return to my values as a vegetarian/pescatarian via gluten/grain/sugar free veganism for this period. I'm not thinking of this as a diet but rather a preparation period for a lifelong change. I've also challenged myself to not weigh myself at all in this time. I'm doing this to learn how to really tune in with my body and how it feels after I eat and do activities, etc. So far: Skin less red, joints less achy, clothes looser, eyes clearer, and all of my gut issues (for those of y'all who know me well) are completely GONE. But I'm quite frequently...GRUMPY! Here's me dealing with grumpy. So, I'm a big fa

Lean Christine (rebooted)

Welcome to my blog. I've done several cleanses, about 6, with good results. A person cleans their body out and loses weight as long as they follow the plan. It's quite simple. But a cleansing diet is not meant to be sustainable and so it isn't...and neither are the results. The results can be sustainable if you have a good plan post cleanse. For whatever reason, I could not get it together to set things up well for myself. I first started this blog in March of 2017 and then I got off the horse. I took the page down and then restarted in March of 2018. I super got off the horse that time and took the page down again. This time, I've decided to share after already beginning my process.
