I have to admit, I have been feeling a little … well, unhealthy lately. I’ve never been very diligent about diet or exercise, but I have a pretty active lifestyle and generally eat okay, so I have gotten away with a lot of bad habits (ahem, cheese-related habits). Last weekend, however, I had a little beach time on Lake Michigan and realized I am not in my best beach body shape. I decided to get proactive and dive into a plant based diet. My parents have been eating this way for a few months and they love it. The guidelines I’ve adopted are basically consistent with a vegetarian or mostly vegan diet, but with a little wiggle room. I am eating meals with fresh, non-processed foods. This should explain why my recipe posts will be a little “cleaner” for a while.
I’ve been hitting the gym more often as well, and with a little luck maybe I will actually start to enjoy running. We’ll see.
