My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi everyone. I just noticed that my last post was almost a month ago! I can’t believe it’s been that long. Things have been quite hectic here lately and I had a very stressful 2 or 3 weeks at work to the point where I almost made myself ill. I’ve been down this road before, many years ago, and so I recognized the signs and knew that I had to do something about it before I ended up taking time off work.

I wallowed in this for a couple of weeks and then I just got tired of being tired, and tired of being angry and tearful and tired of my jeans feeling tight, and so I pulled myself together, did quite a bit of meditation, put some lovely soothing essential oils in my diffuser, listened to some music and had a chat with some good friends. I think there was tea involved too.

Almost overnight, I started feeling better and decided I needed to get back on track in the food department. My body was craving salads and vegetables, but I also didn’t want to spend too much time in the kitchen until my body was completely destressed. So this week’s menu is an easy, but delicious and healthy one:

Breakfast : Fruit Smoothie with Chia seeds
Lunch : Slow cooker Ham, Cabbage & Bean Soup (from Canadian Living Magazine)
Supper: Chicken Fajitas from last week’s left over chicken
