I learn something new everyday! I have a notebook to refer to, should I find something interesting or worthwhile to try. I call it, learning as I go diet! I have not changed much, just finding things I liked already on say 5% fat diet, and building on that. Vegan plus fish, no added salt. My fish has to be low mercury since I'm trying to become a mom....and there's a fantastic chart here for anyone in my situation: http://www.healwithfood.org/list/fish-h ... levels.php
I am very lazy these days, so for work I might buy Oasis brand fat free hummus and add to it after heating, freshly ground toasted flax seeds, nutritional yeast, and eat it with raw bell peppers, celery, etc. I make oatmeal sometimes for breakfast and add a cup of frozen berries, walnuts, ground seed blend, ground cinnamon, cloves, cardamom and ground ginger. My other fav thing is to water sautee mushrooms, cabbage, onions and butternut squash, throw over udon noodles and toss with a peanut dressing I make with flax oil, lime juice, cilantro, crushed garlic and powdered peanut butter. I usually have cold brewed hibiscus tea; very cheap, easy and pretty...kicks matcha tea's butt in the antioxidant department also. Sometimes I add amla powder to orange juice. Most recently I've added grilled salmon and red wine to my weekly menu.
The reason I choose these things are because of Dr Fuhrman's preaching on eating GBOMB's (greens, beans, onions, mushrooms, and berries) everyday for excellent health, Dr Gregor's (nutritionfacts.org) multiple reviews of research papers on antioxidants or on what to eat to reduce inflammation/boost immunity, and ideas from the Esselstyn's and McDougall's that are just easy and palatable. The grilled salmon and red wine are from OMS...and right now I have a glass of wine with my Copaxone shot
What about you, bluestocking?!
