Plant Based Diet – Food Variety

Today is the 5th day of me on a plant based diet!

When I started I was thinking – how will I find enough to eat? Normally I do not eat a variety of vegetables or even fruits for that matter. So a diet that consists of only plants seemed a little difficult to me.  That was also some of the motivation behind this diet choice – to learn to like a greater variety of vegetables.

To start off – I eat a lot of nuts during the day (easy snack).  But I have also found some new vegetables to try and plenty of fruits to keep me full.  My wife says when I am hungry I get a little cranky, so I want to keep my mind in tune by eating well.  To make both of us happy!

Below are some pictures of some of the foods I have ate this past week.

I keep plenty of nuts on hand – almonds, pecans and walnuts
What great snack options I have been enjoying – apples, bananas and blueberries
I love a good cutie
I tried a new dish – butternut squash and artichokes.  I also baked some beets for supper.
The old standby of gapes as a snack

I bought most of my foods from our local grocery store, but also made a trip to Whole Foods to find some organic options.  I prefer the organic foods for several different reasons.  The next time I go I need to plan a little better with meals in mind instead of just the foods that I know I like to eat.

Now the weekend is coming.  How will I hold up?! ……………
