On Friday, I made a red lentil roast, and it tasted good. My partner liked it too. But something in it didn't agree with us. So, we'll see about making it again.

I've been finding some great deals. Eating really healthy, and saving money. I've also been working out 6 days a week (Power 90 is the program) and I feel great and have lost 10 pounds.

Eating good and exercising

Yep, I've been doing both those things you're supposed to do. And enjoying it! I'm working out 6 days a week and loving it!

I'm also eating healthy and frugally. Lots of rice and beans and veggies and whole grains. I'm enjoying it all.

Tried a cheese fondue recipe from shmoo's mother. Didn't care for the taste.

Plans for Saturday

My partner is working 9-6, so after I take her to work, I'll come home and have breakfast.

I'm going to have oatmeal, with Grape-nuts added, and I'm going to try it with some added cinnamon and a little bit of real maple syrup.

I'll do my workout sometime in the morning.

Cooking tomorrow, I'm going to make hummus from scratch for the first time. Dinner will be a quinoa pilaf.

I may try to make mac & cheese again. I have two recipes, one from frugal veggie mama and another one.

My partner is enjoying the healthier eating. And we are saving money, even though we are actually buying some pricier stuff, like ketchup without corn syrup, and Earth Balance margarine. But home cooking is cheaper, even if an ingredient is slightly more money.

I made a pasta chili tonight from a McDougall cookbook, slightly modified. I used a can of Health Valley veggie chili, 8 ou tomato sauce, garlic and onion powder, 1/2 can of pinto beans and about a half cup of Pace Picante Mild. Mixed up with pasta and had some bread on the side.

2006 Resolutions

A day late, but what the heck! :)

Lose weight, a lot of it.
Continue to eat healthy, mostly vegan.
Get rid of foods with health-destroying ingredients, like hydrogenated oils, msg, yeast extract, aspartame, high fructose corn syrup, and so on.
Drink lots of water.
Exercise 3-4 times a week.
Exercise frugality and save money!
