It’s a brand, new year and boy, do I need to set the reset button, so there’s no better time than now. I’ve had some health issues that need to be addressed such as aching joints, lack of energy; the typical old age complaints. But, I’m not going to let age take over. It’s back to healthier eating and getting out in the gardens more. I’ve also joined Weight Watchers (again) to help keep me honest and for a little inspiration from the other members. The group there is always so supportive.
I’m definitely going back to a more serious vegan lifestyle. I was always, “mostly vegan,” but I was making too many exceptions and my weight was creeping up. Now, I’m about 98% vegan and so is the hubby. He’s happy about that. (We still have to make concessions when we go out, or eat with others and that’s OK.)
I thought that I’d take this week to share with you some of my favorite, healthful, vegan meals and recipes. Here’s the first one, Whole Wheat Tortillas. They cost a fraction to make compared to store-bought ones and they taste so much fresher. I use them for salad wraps, tacos, breakfast burritos, you name it. This is for a batch of 4, medium-size tortillas. Just double the recipe, if you need more. They only take a few minutes to make, so there’s no need to make a huge batch. I think that the olive oil also adds a healthful touch, since many of the store-bought ones use trans fats in their recipes.
