My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Reducing my Carbon Footprint

I used to make my own dog food and my own dog treats and then things got hectic and I stopped doing it. Instead, I bought what I thought was the healthiest dry food for my dogs. It cost me an arm and a leg and couple of toes, but I soon came to the … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life – Reducing my Carbon Footprint

Hi everyone! It's been a few weeks. Things have been more than a little hectic around here. Buuut, I'm getting back on track now.  I'm afraid to say that I fell off the wagon in terms of exercise. With the warmer weather, I've (re)started walking for 30 minutes a day along the sea wall in Sechelt … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Back on track finally and I lost 3 pounds last week! Whoo hoo! I did things a little differently this time. Instead of having leftover suppers for my lunch, I've been having a salad instead. And absolutely NO sweets! I have a horrible sweet tooth, but this week a small yogurt after supper satisfied my … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Hi Guys. The comfort food last week seemed to do the trick - we're feeling almost normal again 🙂 I haven't even been near the scale last week as 'comfort food' also included a couple of bags of chips while watching a movie or two, not to mention the chocolate. I think we all need … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

We seem to be recovering, but are still hankering for comfort food, so this week's menu is just that. Monday: Turkey/Lasagna Soup. This isn't exactly "soup" per se, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Well, I'm still not sure if I've lost any weight. Our new scale arrived last week, but I guess I'll have to wait a week until I know for sure. I'm certain I haven't gained anything, as my clothes haven't got any tighter!  🙂 When I made the Balsamic Roast Veggie & White Bean Pasta, … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

Well, I'm not sure exactly how much weight I lost this week because my scale gave up the ghost. I don't know anyone else that's happened to! We ordered a new one, but it hasn't arrived yet. I can say that my clothes are slightly less tight, so I must have lost something. My lack of … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life

My (Almost) Vegetarian Life and, at last – weight loss!

Hello all! I am excited to say that I lost 6.5 lbs last week! Just from switching a few things around and finding alternative snacks. To recap, click here I won't say that I didn't struggle a bit in the beginning, because I did. It's tricky in the beginning to change the habits of a … Continue reading My (Almost) Vegetarian Life and, at last – weight loss!
