Here are some of my "Healthy Eats". I have to say, I am really surprised with myself. I was worried that I would not stick to this "whole foods, unprocessed" diet after I went shopping to Whole Foods and saw all the vegan junk food and smelled freshly baked Italian bread......I had to hold myself back from buying some of the stuff that I recently gave up. I was thinking, mmmmm, freshly baked bread, just a slice....Well, I knew in the back of my mind that one slice would quickly turn into eating the whole loaf. Some with vegan butter and jam, some with vegan butter and Marmite and some with Tofurky deli slices and vegan mayo. Then I would come back to the store and get a Tofurky pizza and a jar of pickles and I would be back right where I started, maybe even worse.
I have been reading tons of books about vegan nutrition and nutrition in general and I am learning something new everyday. I am not perfect and never will be so I am not making the best choices in my diet, but I am making better and healthier choices.

Spinach salad with avocado, tomatoes, dried cranberries and raw pumpkin seeds and raw sunflower seeds
When I was craving apple turnovers, apple strudel and apple crumble, I made simple baked apples topped with raisins and walnuts, sprinkled with cinnamon. Yummy!
