Beginning today I am turning over a new leaf.  I am eliminating a few things from my eating regimen for the foreseeable future:

  • bread
  • candy
  • sodas
  • pastas
  • refined sugars
  • processed foods

Why?  Because these types of foods are killing me and keeping me from living to full-capacity.  It is time for a change.

Is it? Ha ha just thought I would have a little fun with this one. It’s not. Beef that is. As I’m sure you can tell from the picture.

If you know a little bit about me you know I don’t eat red meat or pork at all and very little meat.

This is one of my vegetarian versions of Chicken or Beef Teriyaki.

What you will need:

  • Brocoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Zucchini
  • Carrots

Lot’s of veggies. There’s a lot of options. So use what ever you like. The above is just what I used this time. It’s never exactly the same when I make it. It just depends on what I have on hand.

  • Yellow Bell Pepper
  • Green Bell Pepper
  • Red Bell Pepper
  • 1/2 of an Onion
  • Green Onions
  • Sesame Seeds, Almonds or Pine Nuts ( optional )

For the meat:

  • Portobello Mushrooms

This recipe looks amazing, tasty and energetic for a breakfast meal!

The Colored Plate

In the spirit of the upcoming fall season I decided to put a healthy twist on one of my favorite desserts and turn it into a healthy breakfast. Like every other girl, I have a complete obsession with fall, it’s almost the time of year where we see pumpkin flavored everything & the smell of cinnamon in every house. This is the time of year where I bake the most & so I decided to start my blog off with one of my favorite breakfasts, Apple Baked Oatmeal.

Its perfect microwaved in the morning with a glass  of almond milk, or if you feel like indulging a little bit you can have with 2-3 Tablespoons of your favorite non dairy ice cream (I used soy) as a tasty dessert.
