The past few weeks I have been feeling kind of, um, irregular. I am placing the blame on the fish and eggs that I’ve started eating. After being vegan/vegetarian for over a year my body doesn’t care too much for meat so eating it basically pisses off my digestive system. Also, I haven’t been losing weight like I used to so it’s back to vegetarian basics this week. We’ll see how I feel at the end of the week and if my overall mood and stomach feel better then we’ll just abandon the whole EAT FISH AND EGGS AT EVERY! SINGLE! MEAL! concept. I just wanted us to get more protein to help burn more fat but it didn’t exactly work like that.
What? I’m no dietitian.
See? BEANS. Three out of five days we’re eating beans and technically it’s four days since tofu is made from soy. The problem, however, is that now I don’t know what to eat for lunch. Before I went back to work I was eating oatmeal for breakfast so I’ve got that meal covered but what the hell am I going to do about lunch? Veggies and fruit? PB&J? If I don’t have something delicious packed I will be tempted to join my coworkers when they go out to lunch. Honestly, I can make healthy choices at restaurants but we can’t afford it.
Anyway, I’ll be sharing the recipe for black bean burgers later this week so keep your eyes peeled for that if it’s something you’re interested in.
