I have had such an adventure navigating through changing how I think of food, especially when it comes to veggies vs. meat. I have enjoyed trying new recipes. I have always wanted to put more effort in trying new things, and experiementing with a Vegetarian based diet sure gave me the motivation. I have discovered so many great reciepies from a number of different places. What makes them the best is when my kids will eat them with a smile.
Since my inspiration came from “Forks Over Knives” I use their site and recipe book as a resource. I have found wonderful recipes like Veggie Chilli, Potato Enchiladas, and Baked Stuffed Tomatoes with Couscous. These have turned into staple recipes that I will double batch and eat through the week. I never seem to get tired of them, and thank goodness, neither do my kids.
My kids are my true motivation. I have a responsiblity to set the example of a healthy lifestyle of fitness, but also how to eat in a healthy way. I want them to know that healthy eating is still enjoyable and delicious. I think eating healthy has gotten a bad rap. We assume is means restriction, bland, boring eating. That is simple not true. I actually feel so much better and enjoy my meals so much more knowing that they taste great and are fueling my body with nutrients, not things I will regret later.
Here is my current favorite recipe Potato Enchiladas. Visit the Forks Over Knives website and look it up in the recipe guide. Here is the link: http://www.forksoverknives.com/potato-enchiladas/ Give it a try and see what you think. Here is to healthy delicious eating.
