I realize now what seems to work for me. I don't know why but I go through this thing every now and then of struggling how I should eat. I would never eat meat or dairy, but I struggle with eating more protein or what is best to snack on ect. I realize now through God's help what works for me. I know I need to eat my veggies first at meals, but I do so much better eating when I eat, sweet potatoes, potatoes and rice, things that are more filling, but less calories. I have known it for a while, but chose to have snacks that were rice cakes or just eating bean type stuff with not the filling potatoes ect. I still will eat lots of veggies and beans, but also fill in the spaces with potatoes and sweet potatoes.
Last night I had a cool dream that I was at Dr. Mcdougall's house with his wife and that they cooked us this great meal. It was stuffed green and red peppers. And then for dessert was an apple crisp. It was so good and healthy and I loved that I got a chance to talk to him in real life. I wish that that was real and not just a dream. I wish I could afford to go to some of these conferances or at least listen to them online, but I just can't afford it.
