Hello All!

I know I have not written for a while but I have been pretty busy with my new organic, vegan, non-processed food diet. I also know that many of the people I see day to day must be extremely confused when I sneak in a bagel or have sushi for lunch. Here is why I allow myself to cheat a little:

1. I believe in enjoying life. I am slowly growing to love the new ways to make food, however, since I am allowed in my diet to have 20% be made of animal products, I can splurge here or there.

2. I am on this diet for health reasons only, it is not to get skinnier or for political reasons (though both are a plus since it’s nice to not support the killing of animals and I lost 6 pounds since I started 🙂 )

Those two reasons are why you might be confused when I don’t throw a fuss when we go out because I calculate it into my diet by not having any animal products at home and if I go out with some friends it is easier to go along with it. I would probably eat healthier if my friends and everyone ate the same diet, however, that is not realistic and since it wont effect my health that much, it seems logical to splurge a little.

Now, I know you are probably wondering, “OK, she keeps on talking about this amazing diet, but why did she pick it?” Well, very soon I will upload the video of alllllll of the scientific reasons organic, non processed vegan is the way to go if you want to live a healthy, long life. However, for your entertainment, I will be uploading lots of new recipes for now 🙂 Thank you all for the support and understanding,

Just because I go vegan, doesn’t mean YOU have to

organic polenta with basil, red sauce, spinach and zucchini

Dear Friends, Family and Colleagues,

Yes, Jon and I decided to go organic vegan now and it was all due to a very convincing lunch we had with someone who has researched what the healthiest diet is for 15 years. If more scientific evidence comes up though, our diets will change. This is strictly a for-health diet and vegan seems the best way to go (though I looooove cheese).

However, people seem a little bummed and I want you all to know to not be! I am not going to force my diet on you, it’s a challenge I have to face first and then of course I challenge anyone to do these diets, but I will never tell you about it unless you ask. Also many places out there do have vegan meals- so dont worry! If not, I will eat before we go out and I can still at least have a drink! So when you think you will not be able to go to lunchins with me or dinner or out for drinks (wine 😉 ), do not be stressed I am sure we can figure something out (like organic coffee seems to be many places 🙂 ). Thank you all of your support and videos of what changed my mind will come soon!

Best,

Ana

I need more DIETS!

Hey everyone! So as you know, I am going off suggestions here and I need more diets! Please leave me a list and for your pleasure I have added pics and recipe of how I made the bbq tofu, crunchy, onion salad tacos 🙂

So first you add in a sauce pan organic olive oil, tofu, onions and sesame seed whole wheat crackers. Then you add organic bbq sauce and some salad and viola! You have a tasty organic dinner 🙂

Me-cooking before we go work out 🙂

If my BF loves them this much that he will let me take a pic and post it, then they have to be good.

The Anti-Cancer Diet

Hello everyone!

So as you may know, I felt pretty refreshed with the vegitarian diet- more energy and what not- however, I still was able to eat processed foods. So now, I am on the Anti-Cancer Diet!  Did you know that every one of us has dormant cancer cellsAfter researching what I should be eating to prevent cancer, I have now shopped for a new diet for this brand new week! Here is my shopping list:

I did not buy everything on the list since I dont need all that food for just a week or two- but it gives you some great variety to choose from! Here was my shopping cart with my list that I bought from Trader Joes


Now that I have all of this food it was time to be creative and cook! So, due to small portion sizes that we required for this diet I made the perfect dish- stuffed peppers! I stuffed them with grass fed beef (about 1/4 cup), organic polenta, organic tomato basil sauce and topped with cheese- It was delicious :). Now I  have to work out for 30 minutes today- so adios and wish me luck!
