Drop Those Pounds!!!

Food
When will these extra pounds leave?! Who else feels like that when you are eating what you consider to be healthy? This is how I have felt quite a few times. This past January I decided to take a month to eat mainly vegetables and fruits. I still had sourdough bread every so often and eggs, but I did totally cut off the following: rice grits meat sugars (I did continue to use maple syrup and honey). pasta My purpose was to eat as close to a plant-based diet as possible because I know that is one of the healthiest ways to eat.

When my family and I first started this journey, we definitely got looks and questions, and mainly from relatives. It seemed that we were labeled as snobs  from others because we chose to change our lifestyle.  Though it did not hamper us from transitioning to an organic lifestyle, it definitely was an experience feeling like we had to yield to interrogations as to why.
