A Small Step in the Right Direction

One small step for me.  One giant leap for my health.   About a week ago I made a small change in my diet.  I replaced the milk in my cereal with nonfat vanilla soy milk.  I feel 10 times better in the mornings.  I've started cooking with it too.  My body feels lighter and healthier.  I feel a lot more energized after my workouts.  I did this because I noticed that in the evenings when I dip into my daughters' ice cream I felt icky afterwards.  Not just in an "I-ate-too-much-ice-cream" sort of way but in an icky tummy sort of way. 

I started using it because I wanted to use up the soy milk I bought for the (award winning) Independence Day vegan cupcakes.   I would switch my yogurt to soy if they made a fat free version.

Here are the health benefits of Soy Milk.

Now for a segment called What I Ate Wednesday (W.I.A.W)  This is where you get to see everything I ate over a course of a day.

A banana and some Crispy Rice cereal with blueberries, vanilla soy milk and a bit of sugar

My sad lunch.  Half a cookie and a banana.  I know, I'm bad...

"Sausage" Meatballs

These were the Light Life Ground Sausage meatballs I made for dinner.  Simple recipe:  1 roll of Light Life Ground Sausage, 1/4 of an onion diced, and a diced jalepeno.  Mix it all together and roll it into balls.  I got 16 out of it.  Pop them into a 350 degree oven for about 20 minutes until they're a little brown and enjoy!  

 Dinner.  A nice little salad, meatballs and roasted brussel sprouts covered with fat free pepperjack cheese.  Delicious!!

Baye's dinner.  Meatballs, carrots, yogurt and some Babybel cheese.

Dessert.  Huge slices of watermelon.  Unfortunately I didn't rinse off the board before slicing it so I had jalapeno watermelon.  It was actually quite interesting.

So that's my food for the day.  What did you eat today?
