I hope you are all staying on target with your goals this year and remembering your "why". I have something I would love some help with. I am doing some market research around a vegan meal plan subscription. If you are interested in something like this, I would love to chat with you about your needs and goals. You can connect with me here or over on Instagram. My handle is @Vegerarchy

TO ALL WHO CELEBRATE IT



Spring
EST
BLC45 - Resolute Renegades
I will be resolute in getting an exercise routine in place. Cardio in the am, ST in the pm.
I will be renegade against that little devil voice that tells me all those negative thoughts - "Don't bother exercising today, you can just do extra tomorrow" or "I know you're trying to eat right, but you deserve this treat", etc.
2021 Winter 5% Challenge - Firecrackers

This one morning in late November, Noni was away so I sat still on the deck with my camera in hand. All these birds showed up within an hour to the feeder that was hanging in the tree.
( disclaimer.. all these birds did show up, but a couple of these photos might be from a different day. I have already deleted some photos from my iPad)


I have most of these showing up now as regulars except the Pileated Woodpecker and the Hummingbird hasn’t been around since ..
gotta love my backyard... good ridden to the condo with their bylaws forbidding me from feeding

Earlier this week went walking and I got to see a new lifer for me... a Long Tail Duck ..



Another day Snow Goose

Loving the colours

Some more carvings and murals



Work is going fine. I can’t say I enjoyed waking up at 3:55 AM leaving the house at 4:05 and arriving at work 4:45 to begin my shift at 5:00 AM .. when I was off at 1PM (1300 hr ) I was so tired.
However moving to Campbell River remains the right choice.
Next week I meet our new family doctor and the week after I’ll be taking my car in for service at a garage that I hope will become my regular service centre..
Noni and I even stopped at the hospital near our home.. went in to find out where the labs were and where emergency department is .. Good to know before we actually need them ...
Campbell River is becoming more and more like home ..

Just outside of Campbell River is this Wildlife rescue Center. After church we stopped in on the spur of the moment and we were able to join a tour already in progress. We finished the tour and then the guide took us privately to the parts we missed.

What interesting veggies! emoticon emoticon emoticon

My veggie drawer is pretty boring. I don't have hidden treasures in my veggie crisper. Just eggplants that look like eggplants and carrots that look like carrots. My lettuce looks like lettuce. Ho hum ... but with potential for dinner.

Good morning!
Happy October!

I requested a book from library called The Sexy Vegan Cookbook: Extraordinary Food from an Ordinary Dude
by Brian L. Patton (Author)

-right now I am doing best to eat healthy but I am looking forward to an 80/20 approach and have some indulgent veg dishes. Right now- we are not having gatherings/parties like we used to. Feels so strange. We moved in to our new house at the end of April and normally would have had a party. Just hunkering down and remaining hopeful.

How is every body doing??

I was vegetarian for years but I decided to eat meat to lose some fast weight and I did(a bit).
I wanted to come back to veg but I am currently in a middle zone, I eat meat but not a lot, but I still do and it is making me feel sick. I want to go veg again and I need some help. It's just much harder now with all the new stresses in the world.

Those birds are beautiful!

LAM200514 There is a vegan team that is active here -it is called
The Vegan, Plant-Based Life
You can find it if you look for teams

I think many of us here have been veg for a long time so when you are not new not too much new stuff to be finding out. The other vegan team is active and if you are following a plant based diet then are a few teams here. McDougall. Furhman etc

On the way back home we stopped to take in the view.. approximately an hour drive south from Campbell River..

I think our own shore will look just as amazing that’s only minutes drive from our driveway

At A breakneck speed .. sought, offered, bought all within 24 hours .
God is so good...
- if we came sooner this place wasn’t on the market.
- if we came later, I’m quite sure someone else would had bought.
- priced perfect for our budget.
- size perfect, we asked God for at least two bedrooms, he gave three, we wanted two baths, we got three, wanted a garage for storage and God gave an extra storage shed thrown in.
- would liked a spot for gardening, God gave a large yard with gardens already in place and an extra bonus of a small water feature.
God is always gracious and merciful and kind ..

One of the cooks pretending to be sick went home early and I came in to finish her shift and begin mine. 10 hours on a holiday, I wonder if I’ll be paid the holiday rate?
Today instead of 4 hours I will be working 8 hour as last week this person asked to change shifts with me so she could go to Vancouver Island for the week with her friends . She needs to be fired..


chia pudding with purée mango and purée strawberries

Shepherd Pie

Quinoa salad

I sold the condo Friday night at 8:35 pm...
Saturday I began to tell our friends , I had kept our intentions of selling a secret except for a couple of friends.. now I not only tell them I plan on moving but I sold the condo.
- I give notice to work that Noni and I are resigning at the end of August
- I go to the store and obtain more boxes ..
- I spend an hour on the phone on hold to book a ferry to travel to Vancouver Island and back for this Friday Saturday to look at houses ( website crashed to book on line)
- I update my realtor on Vancouver Island
- I arrange to have staff cover Noni and my shifts.
- confirm with my friend that the dates and times are ok for us to stay with them on the island

I have a nap in the afternoon..

I pack the boxes I gathered earlier

That’s pretty much my Saturday.. .oh yea I also washed the car..

I bought my wife some new kitchen knives .
Will she get much use out of them is the question... we find out Friday if we are homeless or not.
I asked the potential buyer if we can rent from him as this is why he’s buying our condo..
He said yes but at a crazy ridiculous rental price ..
so if it goes through.. we will madly seek for a place within our budget..

Waking up everyday at 5:15am ... I’m not a morning fan

Moroccan stew, arugula salad with a lemon dressing, couscous, rice salad and homemade T biscuits

corn on the cob, vegetarian burger, mushrooms and watermelon and baked yam fries

edamame Asian salad, baked squash, parsnips and carrots, sautéed zucchini / eggplant with ground round ( fake hamburger) and a green salad

Why have lost weight ? Look what I have been cooking and eating


I don’t like mornings, but look at my drive to work

Where is this place? What do they do there (besides eat really well)?

And can you share recipes? What's in the lentil stew? I'd love another interesting lentil dish.

Short noticed.. shopping at Walmart with my wife and I get a text message.. afternoon cook has not shown up for work.. I phone the office and the owner picked up, I have only talked to her once ever, and I had to ask if the cook came or not.. there was over 45 minutes time delay in sending the message and me reading it.. no cook .. can I come in..
Well I said l’ll be there within half an hour..
I get to meet the owner .. nice lady.. she tested, its kinda funny .. but I past .
Several questions on procedures and contacts to call for different repairs and finally a comment about health inspections. I know both the areas Health Inspectors well and they like me.. when I told the owner their names and that comment ... I think I secured her trust... only question or issue is when do I take full reign of the kitchen.. out going manger or myself in charge now.. who do staff call.. I was told I had to resolve this ..

So not really prepared I rush off to work.. what will I serve ?


Roasted potatoes, Lemon roasted asparagus, Steamed carrots drizzled with maple syrup,
Spinach lentil stew and a mixed green salad


8 pm snack

Welcome to our team! emoticon

... and I'm happy to see you again although we are now chatting on a different team! Congrats on your career move!

Speaking for only myself, don't worry about a "classification" unless you want to use something like ... creative and innovative plant-based chef. Your menu ideas are tempting!

Hello everyone.. I am new to this group. I’m not sure how to classify myself.. I love meat of all kinds.. although I do firmly believe I ate to much of it and must stop doing so.. so I needed a solution...
Good news
I was hired to take over the kitchen manager position at a Wellness Center..
I just finished my training , and I cooked on my own two meals already, one early shift 6 - 2 and a late shift 1-8 ..
No meat .. none what’s so ever .. only vegetarian and vegan, Gluten free and dairy free..
No wonder I lost 6 pounds since the beginning of the month..
So now because my wife works there also, our diet is 90% from there. And meat does not find a way into my diet..
We still have a freezer with processed meat products that we will eat on days off until gone, but after this, probably won’t be buying much more..


. Home made falafel, coconut rice, braised red cabbage

( have more photos to post but sparks is not allowing me to post )

SUSMANNIE- hard to find tofu/tempeh here too but I can get soymilk and might try this recipe youtube.com/watch?v=IdGwL5dFgCQ and probably finally try ot make the tofu from garbanzo bean flour.
You can make some awesome stuff from wheat gluten.
Soy Butler curls are good too- can order from Amazon.

Of course..beans- although I do see chickpeas are getting bought out more.

I for some reason don't do well with TVP.

I am nervous t try to make my own tempeh. Afraid I will get the wrong bacteria- but might try

BUT mostly- unpacking into new house keeps me busy.

DD bringing over birthday nime chow which we will eat 6 feet apart from each other.
It has been hard not hugging my kids- but since they are in their 20's and not living with us - that is how it is for now.

I have been figting cervical cancer during the pandemic. Yes, vegetarians/vegans can get cancer, but I believe I have an advantage in beating it. Two weeks into treatment I experienced a stroke which affected my left side. Less then 2 months out I am walking and getting stronger with my lrft arm and hand. I have resumed chemo and radiation treatments and doing well...no major side effects thus far. I have to the end of May to finish. Giving God all the credit for getting me through these long months... AT times I felt like Job with one thing after another. Defibitely doing everything to stay safe from the corona virus and storms which have hit all around us here in TN.

Got my fruits and veggies, thank goodness. But the store I have been going to during the crisis has no tofu or tempeh, which I miss. I ordered TVP and a bag of wheat gluten from Amazon, which will be a new experience for me. Textured vegetable protein has to be rehydrated before cooking. I can make seitan with the wheat gluten. Should be interesting.

DH and I closed on a house on 3/30. That was an interesting process during pandemic.

Moving too- Ususally could have gotten friends and my 4 adult kids to help- I moved boexes and boxes. Hired movers for big stuff - lucky timing was ok with that-

4 kids have been able to help a bit here and there- heartbreaking to do air hugs with 4 kids..-

Settling in now...

Got to go to old place to do a sweep through.

Been maintaining sorta.. gained a bit I think...where did I pack that scale?? lol...and anyhow after my birthday I start a reboot.

Merry Monday all!

Don't give up! Use setbacks as a learning experience and motivation to push forward and prove that you can be successful.

I don't bake too often. We had a frozen bag of the large blueberries and I needed inspiration. I was born in Maine and I'm spoiled by wild blueberries! The cobbler recipe looks good and I'm thinking it would be nice on some pears that I have that were hard until they were over-ripe.

those muffins look awesome!

I like Isa's baking recipes.But I don't bake much anymore
So- I will just make something like the Engine 2 Dumpster Blueberry cobbler if I have a hankering

asp?recipe=728243


+ will even reduce the syrup in it Used to bake when the kids were little but for now recipes like that satisfy. My DH has the sweet tooth but does not cook

But- yup those muffins look good!

I have the cookbook "The Joy of Vegan Baking" where this recipe comes from. I've tried many of the recipes and have never found one I didn't like including the blueberry muffins. These really do look lovely.

I took a giant step closer to vegan. I made blueberry muffins ... without an egg. This was my first attempt at baking without an egg. The muffins are lovely!

I made some changes to this recipe:
