This past weekend, I had a birthday dinner for my husband's step dad to attend, which consisted of a caprese salad (tomato, mozzarella and basil) and almost 2 slices of the best dang cheese pizza in the world. I couldn't have given it up, wouldn't have wanted to. And I didn't feel guilty eating it because the rest of the day had been entirely vegan. On Sunday night, we went to dinner at a friends' house and they served pasta with alfredo sauce and bread with parmesan, so of course, I had those too. But again, I did well the rest of the day and I felt okay splurging a little bit on a delicious dinner with good friends.
Life, after all, is best served with a good dose of moderation, yes?
So this morning, I'm back to my happy plan....I like that. I think that's what I'm going to call it because it makes me feel more alive, more energetic and more HAPPY!
As previously mentioned, I am having scrambled tofu for breakfast.
I've never really used tofu as such a direct substitute for eggs before, but it actually tasted really good. I crumbled some extra firm tofu into a pan and sautéed it with some sun-dried tomatoes, fresh spinach and salt, pepper and a little garlic. I ate a mandarin, a slice of sprouted wheat toast with Earth Balance butter and a soy latte along side it. It was pretty dern delicious.
I'm actually kind of excited about this new plan of mine. It's the first I've ever had that I think I may actually be able to make work. I mean, it makes sense: put food into my body that helps it perform better. What makes more sense than that?
