Ok, the lazy blogger is back today! :) haha I thought I'd catch up on the past few weeks so here goes! :)
To start with, I haven't eat meat (except for a few shrimp and some fish) since January 6. :) We watched some documentaries on Netflix (Forks over Knives, Food Inc., Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead to name a few). I was utterly grossed out by not only they way animals are treated in food production (which I knew before, just decided to ignore I guess), but also I was grossed out by how our food is processed. Ammonia washed chicken anyone? UGH! Watch them, and I'm sure it will make you think about changing your eating habits as well. Plus, recently Adam showed me what chicken nugget paste looks like. GAG!! haha I won't be eating chicken nuggets ever again.
A couple of Adam's co-workers had seen Fat, Sick & Nearly Dead, and were going on juice fasts at the beginning of January. So Adam decided he wanted a juicer, which meant I researched and researched and researched about them. I found out a lot of interesting facts that I didn't know before, and in the end we decided on a Cuisinart from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The price was good (with my 20% off coupon, it was only $1 more than amazon's price) and they have a great return policy. :) (If you've ready anything about juicers, they like to break. So I knew I didn't want to have the hassle of shipping it back to someplace if I need to return or exchange it.) We bought it 3 weeks ago and it's still going strong. :)
I am not a fan of freshly juiced fruits and veggies. So I have opted to drink Naked drinks a couple times a day, and try to eat clean otherwise. (If you haven't tried the Naked smoothies, OMG, you are missing out! They are GOOD!) I was good for about a week with the whole eating clean thing, but have since reverted a little. :) It takes more work to make meals vegetarian, so I'm lazy and eat the same things over and over. Homemade fresco bean burritos, salads, chips (haha), cheese and crackers, lots of bread, eggs.... blah blah :)
However, this Friday marks a month of not eating any meat, so I'm going to spend some time today getting my act together and planning out some recipes that are healthy, vegetarian, and yummy. :) Maybe Adam will even eat them. We'll see!
I did pretty well I think for my first time ever shooting!
