Not sure if I am eating right. Vegan yes; but not really sure about anything else.
My goal is first to improve my food choices, nutrition for wellness (i'm not sick; but ageing-52), stop eating beef & chicken, and if i lost 15 lbs it would be a bonus worth jumping up and down about. Heck i might even do cartwheels again.
so i found that i like 1 & 1/2 cup kashi 7 grain flakes w/1 & 1/2 cup unsweetened soy milk & a medium banana for breakfast. I might do oatmeal on the weekend.
A couple of days ago i made black bean burgers, which were a bit soft. i used black bean, cooked spinach, garlic, cayanne pepper and lots of brown rice. they were good. Even other family members liked them.
here's my question.. i ate those for lunch and dinner till they were gone with watermelon for dessert. Is that ok? the beans held me great.. i was never hungry except when it was time to eat. is that a fattening dish?
Last night i made the couscous confetti salad. I was going to eat that for lunch and dinner till gone. it's yummy by the way.. But i decided to make the red pepper & carrot soup this am. So i have them both ready to go.. along with watermelon, pineapple and cukes cut up and ready to eat.
Is this meeting nutrional requirements? will i be hungry? can i do it this way -cook once eat a few times? not enough beans with the two i have made? should i mix in hummuas? is it too many carbs for weight loss? too much sugar with all the fruits?
ok so i am a little confused. I am trying to make this work for me. even before i would cook on sunday and monday at least part of the food i would be eating tues wed and thrus.
ps. i do take a multi, b-complex and cal-mag. Should i add fish oil?
thanks for your help.. cch.
