Two days

Two days have gone with this new way of eating and I feel good!
Actually very good!

The first meals I had with this low-fat/no-animal-food, I was hungry sooner after eating then I was used to. But with more beans and starch – like rise or quinoa – I keep satisfied even longer than I used to.

Dinner to night – a warm quinoa chickpea sallad.

I warmed this in a frying pan – without oil or butter. ūüėÄ
  • Some red bell pepper – diced
  • One tomato – diced
  • Maize
  • Green peas
  • Chickpeas
  • One small clove of garlic – finely chopped
  • Quinoa – cooked yesterday
  • Some lemon juice, and lemon pepper – (take it easy on that one)
  • Some oregano and parsley
  • Had to have a pinch of seasalt as well

Just toss the ingredients around in the pan until everything is nice and warm – it doesn’t have to be actually cooked. Other then the quinoa and the chickpeas of course, and that you can do beforehand and store in the fridge or freezer until you need it.

Finally! Serve on a bed of green leaves.

Also it feels so calm and well-balanced in my stomach, and it defininetely is okay for me now to eat oats again. I’m so glad about that, since it simplyfies my eating a lot. In bread and cakes, porridge, m√ľsli. It’s so good and it so benefits the body.
The trickiest is to get used to not use any oil or butter. But not worse than I can handle it.

I’m so glad I got the impuls to do this finally – not only think I ought to do something about my eating habits, and also glad for my decision to actually follow this through. ūüėÄ

Thanks also to the pep I get from visiting sites, and watching movies and videos on Youtube that help me learn more, and keep me going for this,

Movies that you can watch on Netflix are f.ex:
  • Forks over Knives;
  • Engine2Kitchen rescue;
  • What the Health;
  • Foodmatters;
  • Fat, Sick and nearly Dead, 1 and 2;
  • Cowspiracy
  • and more…

Vegan bolognese

Lot’s of things goes very well together. Like¬†ordinary¬†spaghetti with¬†tomato sauce. Simple enough!¬†If that doesn’t go well together – what does? And this¬†sauce is done in less then 10 minutes.

This particular sauce is made of chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and tomatoes, one can or small carton of each, and spices.

I used: red chilipaste, tomato paste, garlic – fried this gently in some butter
Added the tomatoes and the chickpeas, some broth, oregano..
Then just boil, mix, and spice it enogh to your own taste.

At the end I¬†added some fresh spinach and spiced it to taste with som salt, a dash of apple cider vinegar, and lemonpeppar…
And some extra water (if needed)…

Then I enjoyed this course with gluten free spaghetti. And had a refill…

More about Oregano and its health benefits –

after what I’ve read, it even helps the body to detox from being exposed to mold and its toxins, like if you have lived in a moldy¬†home. For specific health use there is Oregano oil, but I think¬†adding oregano in food also gives a positive health influense. It will take longer time, but doesn’t taste as sharf. In fact! It really tastes good!
