I'm on a doctor-sanctioned "diet," though I'd rather call it a "nutrition plan" or "Erin eats more healthy food now" or something else, anything, rather than that four-letter word.
What do I eat instead? Greek yogurt like it's going out of style (it probably is), moderate amounts of raw almonds, cottage cheese, beans instead of meat in lots of entrees, and vegetables are my new BFFs. I thought I ate "a lot" of veggies before I started this
And eggs. Oh eggs. Scrambled, boiled, or sunny side up -- they're good for all kinds of meals. Check out my veggies and brown rice bowl, gilded with a lovely egg. I was pretty thrilled about it.
It's been a little over a month now and thus far I'm noticing differences; I have a bit more energy and maybe it's just my imagination but I think my clothes fit a little better. I won't harp on and on about it here on the blog b/c I don't think it's healthy. But I am excited about approaching cooking and eating in a new light -- and maybe feeling lighter along the way.
