It's been a while since I've updated this blog. I love new recipes but when I'm trying to find new ones and making them I tend to lose track of my health and weight and forget about eating healthy. Because of this I've once again started the 'eat to live' diet (also known as the Dr. Fuhrman diet). Last weekend we had a little bit of a scare with my blood pressure being WAY too high. I've always had this problem but it wasn't until I got pregnant with my daughter that I realized it was an issue. Since then I've struggled with it. If I don't eat healthy my blood pressure is high. It's as simple as that. I can no longer pretend to not be aware of this and need to make changes. I love food and love when it tastes good. So right now I'm in search of recipes that are vegetarian or vegan that taste good. I won't continue to eat healthy unless I find food that is enjoyable to eat. I have found that the eat to live diet is the quickest way for me to get my blood pressure down so this is one of the reasons for choosing it. I feel good about it though and have a better attitude this time around. So if anyone is reading this and has some recipes to share I would really appreciate it. When I find good recipes that are worth posting than I will share them also. Thanks!
