Forks Over Knives

This week marks my 4th week back at work. Such an amazing blessing! I remember being so nervous on the eve of my first day back. I have been learning how to manage working, taking care of a baby, cooking, cleaning, and everything in between. So I apologize for slacking on the posts! Jamison and I have been going to sleep so early during the week. We are exhausted. Wes is still not sleeping through the night. He will be turning 5 months next week and I’m praying that once we start baby food it will be the key to sleeping all night. I will keep you posted!

Jamison and I watched a documentary called Forks Over Knives. It was pretty inspiring. We learned so much about how food can heal your body from diseases and cancer! If you haven’t read my cancer story click here! Anyways, we have been vegan/plant based for a little over 2 weeks. Sounds crazy right?! Yes I thought so also! But with pinterest and youtube there are SO many resources to help us succeed with this life style. I don’t think Jamison will be vegan for ever (he loves steak and queso too much!) but I think It will be good for him to give it a break every now and then. I am so thankful that he has been so supportive throughout this decision I have made. 

I know some of you are thinking YOU ARE CRAZY! I thought it was crazy also, but I do not want to cut my life short because I’d rather have a steak than a salad. I was not put on this earth to live for food!

Here are some of my favorite plant based recipes that we have made so far! And NOT one is a salad!!

Also, this is the link to my plant based recipes Pinterest board. I am constantly adding to it. Follow it to find some healthy alternatives!
