15. What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Losing weight. I’ve lost over 6stone! :) I used to weigh 17stone 9lbs (247lbs). I wasn’t happy. I felt big, unhealthy and my knees were starting to become painful. So I went to see a dietitian and she helped me with my portions and healthy eating. She then put me on an exercise programme at the gym and the swimming baths. I manged to get down to 11stone (154lbs). Which is a healthy weight for someone at 5’7. I managed to stay between 11 - 11.3 for a while. Which I as happy about. I do have loose skin though, which left me a bit disheartened and I started eating a bit more again, I’m now 11:13 and trying to get back down to 11 again. I’m not depriving myself though, if I want a cookie, I’m gonna have one, just try not to eat the whole lot! lol :D
Today’s Vegan Lunch for the family :)
Stuffed Peppers with potatoes and salad :)
Now, it says stuffed green peppers, I went into the supermarket and omg, why are green peppers more expensive then the other colours? I don’t get it :S I’m on a very small wage, I have to budget, so I opted for a bag of 5 mixed colours for £1.45 instead of paying 69p each for green peppers, which for 4 would of cost me £2.76. Basically double the price because they are GREEN. WTH? My red pepper was bloomin lovely and my parents had the yellow ones. They were gone in no time. Stupid supermarkets :-/
Also, as you will notice, my pepper is sitting in a flower cupcake case lol this is because I can’t cook, I don’t understand how I’m meant to fill my peppers, top them with that stuff and lay them down without it all oozing out, just like it actually did do in the second picture! So, I actually baked mine all upright in plastic cupcake cases lol It worked great! :D
I would definitely use this recipe again, these were soooo nice! :D
Recipe from the book ‘Easy Vegan Cooking’.
Don’t ask yourself, “Is this normal?” Instead, ask yourself:
Is this healthy?
Is this good for me?
This is what I made today for dinner! :) All Vegan! :D
I had no idea what the noodles and aubergine were going to turn out like but it was lovely! It had a bit of spice to it from the cayenne pepper, left my lips tingling for a while! but wasn’t too much :) I do have a recipe for Vegan custard but I felt lazy, so just bought some from Sainsburys! lol I also exchanged the orange segments for banana, soooo good! :P
