Like most runners, I am all about the food.
I am trying to get back to my healthy veg ways. When I was younger, I spent a lot of time in the kitchen whipping up adventurous meals. But now as a busy adult with a full-time job, I have been slacking on the creativity front. I feel like I am eating the same meals day in and day out.
Finding out that I was low on iron was a big wake up call for me. Sure I eat healthy but there is some definite room for improvement. I have never been one of those vegetarians who buys that processed fake meat shit. I love fruits, vegetables, nuts and seeds. Real food.
Food is healing and I am on the road to recovery. As the saying goes, you are what you eat. So bare with me as I write a post now and then about what dish I made this week or what I ate.
A friend stopped in last week and I promised to feed her. I looked around my kitchen and realized I didn't have much. So I put together a randon DIY veg salad buffet. It was a hit. All my Facebook friends and Twitter followers with my colourful and healthy vegetarian buffet. Everybody loves food pictures!
And I made these awesome vegan "cheese" kale chips. Loved this recipe from Our Little Green Dot. Again it was simple and easy to make. The "cheese" sauce was tasty. Cashews are so good for you! (Did you know they are actually considered seeds not nuts?) No doubt I will be making the sauce again to try with other recipes.
I am still getting the hang of using my dehydrator so I will be doing a lot of research online for tips and tricks. There's so much you can make and do with a dehydrator. I wish I had bought one sooner.
How has your diet changed over the years? Have you ever been in a food slump?
