I came home from physical therapy, completely spent. I put on the television and there was an infomercial on for the Veggie Bullet. Within 13 seconds I was online checking it out. I use a Cuisinart food processor that I received as an engagement gift. Let’s just say that if I was still married, yesterday, May 25, would’ve been my 21st Anniversary. So the Cuisinart was an engagement gift which was easily received a year before that. It mostly works fine but I can only use it on pulse. I can never turn it on and walk away. My finger has to be on the button making it go, but it works. Now that I’m vegan, I use the food processor all the time. I really thought about getting another one because I only have three blades and I can’t do much, but I didn’t want to spend the money. Then I see this infomercial. I am now a proud owner of a veggie bullet.
I made a commitment last week , out loud, on my blog, about losing 20 pounds. I’ve told everybody about my shoulder tendonitis so I can’t really work out. Not that my workouts do much, due to MS, I’m working out in a chair, so my weight loss has to be on diet alone. I’m vegan now 6 months, you’d think it was easy. It was, I was doing really well until I found vegan cookies and doughnuts. Then all my bad habits kicked in. Plus a broken scale gave me a false sense of where I was. Yesterday was my weight day, I lost a pound I’m now 153.8. I’m not going to put up all my stats or take pictures but I’ll share each weigh in. To be vegan, you have to cook. Which I did this week and it definitely makes a difference. Now that my veggie bullet is here I am going to be able to do a whole bunch of things with veggies. I’m excited.
I’m putting together my next shopping order. The first thing I’m trying is the vegan lasagna. I’m going to make a ribbon zucchini and squash with tomato sauce and vegan mozzarella cheese. I say I’m vegan but I try to eat plant-based as much as possible. The difference between plant-based and vegan is not using oil or refined sugars. In the plant-based world there’s no vegan cheese, there’s no vegan mayonnaise, there’s no using coconut oil or white sugar. When I found my vegan cookies, I sort of forgot this fact. Anyway I’m getting back on track. I’m trying to eat right. I’m try to cook right. I’m thrilled to have fun with my veggie bullet. I will continue to update each week. Have a wonderful holiday weekend. Happy Friday.
