for those of you who are newer readers, or who have simply forgotten, as it has been quite awhile, i used to be good and dedicated to make-a-goal mondays, setting personal, short term goals for myself, bettering myself week by week, and urging you to join me or to make a goal of your own. and then one day, so it happened, i just wasn't very good at them anymore. call it laziness, if you will. but lately (as in the past three weeks), i have been really feeling like it would be prudent to pick up the slack once again. so.
goal: eat less processed foods, and more fresh fruits and veggies.
for a vegan, i eat a surprisingly little amount of actual vegetables. let me tell you, if anyone knows how to do vegan the unhealthy way, it is me. somehow, because of my magnet-like abilities to find anything processed, sugar-filled and fattening, i have managed to locate almost every location in the city and grocery store aisles where this junk is sold. furthermore, i am good at eating it. take, for example, the daiya cheese nachos i inhaled for dinner last night. or the gluten/dairy-free mac n' cheese that is currently sitting in my freezer. next to the coconut milk ice cream.
for those who would like to join me on my healthy eating quest this week, good luck! and let me know if you have any tasty recipes/food ideas. i love tasty recipes and food ideas. OR, please share what goal you would like to accomplish this week.
