Food: Day 14, Vegan Kickstart
Lunch: Chickpea Salad Rolls
Snack: Apple or other fruit
Dinner: Kickstart DIY: Beans, greens, and grains
Breakfast: First of all, the Huevos Rancheros was sooo much better than the original tofu scramble! I added some onion to the mix, lessened the amount of turmeric, and the followed the Huevos Recipe as directed. Shown open-faced here, I rolled it in a whole-grain tortilla to make a breakfast wrap. Delicious! I decided not to make the hashbrowns, might try them on a weekend when I have other folks to share with.
Dinner was DIY, so I chose a Forks Over Knives recipe, Italian White Bean, Kale & Potato Stew. For convenience sake, I attempted to adapt it for the slow cooker. I sauteed the onions, garlic, etc as directed, then dumped everything except the kale into the crock-pot. That cooked all day, then when dinner time rolled around I added the kale in the last few minutes before serving. I added a can of tomato puree since the mixture looked too dry to withstand all-day cooking.

Once again, sorry for the less-than-perfect pictures; this stew tasted much better than it looked! Supposedly the recipe only serves six, but my crock-pot was almost overflowing so I'm thinking these are very generous portions.
I'm really surprised at how few cravings I have on the Kickstart. I haven't had any "white foods" other than a little potato here & there, and I'm seriously not missing them! I guess it's true, once you get the crap out of your system you no longer want it. The only trouble I'm having is at night when I want something to snack on when reading or watching TV. I need to prepare a raw veggie platter and have that at the ready for those moments.
Fitness: I put in 30 minutes on the treadmill, burned a few calories...
Personal: Today's goal is to continue with the cleaning/decluttering of this house, also have a couple of errands to run. After days of constant rain, the sun is trying to peek out through the dark clouds, maybe I'll be able to sneak in a Loki walk before the inevitable afternoon showers.
Have a wonderful day!
