Hello everyone! Thanks for taking the time to read this short update. The plant based diet I’m on is going great. I haven’t been on the scale this week, but I must say that I already feel so much better regardless if I have lost weight this week or not. I promised you a couple of weeks ago that I would share with you some ideas on how I’m eating now. I must first tell you that I have never been a big plant eater. Mainly because of some belief systems I have been taught about food. I really won’t go into that today, maybe a later update I’ll share some of the myths I believed to be fact. For now, I want to share with you a plant-based dish that I have been trying different things with over the last two weeks. It is something I really like, it is really easy to fix, and it is VERY healthy. In the picture below is the very dish I am referring to, and I slaved (WINK WINK) over a hot rice cooker all day. Actually, it only took 15 minutes of prep-time and then 2 seconds to turn on the rice cooker.
So, what was in this soup/not soup thing I made? Well here’s is the list:
- One cup of brown rice
- Two large carrots chopped
- One purple onion diced
- Four celery stalks chopped
- One can of diced tomatoes
- Three potatoes chopped into half inch’ish squares
- Three garlic cloves
- Carmalete’s Seasoning
- About 6 cups of water. Put it all in the rice cooker and let her rip!
I change this up everytime I cook it. Sometimes I’ll add beans, or maybe Bok Choy, or who knows what. Also, I eat this often throughout the week.
I hope ya’ll enjoy. Let me know what you think if you try it. If you alter it in any let me know, I may want to try your version.
I love you and God loves you! Bye-bye
