  1. You've mentioned all of my favorites. I also read a few veggie and raw blogs, so I get a lot of ideas from there. Usually though, I'm a no recipe kind of person and meals consist of whatever will soon go bad in the fridge.
  2. I agree on Vega and Thrive Diet foods. I figure if an Iron Man and Ultramarathoner can get by flesh free, I can get through an hour of lifting or Zumba. I've always overeaten on bike rides because I thought I needed more fuel. Found out I just need the right fuel. I eat a lot of nuts and a spoon full of honey and coconut oil when I have heavy duty rides or workouts. There are also some awesome bars out there with 20 grams of protein. I use those a lot for breakfast to start 18 hour days out or when I have long bartending shifts. Seems like they have a good combination of everything my b
  3. Same here! Congrats on kicking the bread addiction. Wheat has always been my favorite food. I never knew what a good life could be had by kicking it to the curb.

    lunch ideas

    I do mostly last night's leftovers. Stuffed peppers, stew, stir fry, marinara on portobellos. I also use large leaf lettuce leafs in place of bread. I dress it up like a veggie delight Subway sandwich. Tomatoes, pickles, onions, peppers, sprouts, jalapenos, spinach, pesto, whatever. Roll it up and it is an all veggie burrito. My daughter likes to take her lunch to school and it is usually carrots and hummus, apple slices (she's at losing teeth age, so a full apple doesn't work), dried fruit mixture, and sometimes veggie sushi. She's the strangest 1st grader in the lunch room, but I thin
  5. I have Deceptively Delicious "just in case" but have never had to use it. My kids eat just about anything. And I am super picky (no wheat/no meat/no dairy). I had no money this summer and could only eat out of the garden and from the CSA farm share. My kids ate everything with no complaining. It was amazing. And as my son's eczema cleared up completely and my daughter started gaining weight (which is a good thing), they got to SEE how amazing veggies are. They help me prepare them, I let them pick what veggies they want (my son will pick broccoli and my daughter sweet potatoes and I don
  6. Nice! I'm trying to grow mine out a bit so I can at least do a pony tail. Mostly for commuting or quick rides that I don't get to shower after. If I'm doing a big ride, I walk into a pit stop with crappy hair and I'm damn proud of it.
  7. Mine is only 2 miles. But I'm a Realtor, so if it is a busy spring, I can get 20 miles in by showing houses around town or making the mad dash home to pick up the Prius. As soon as this snow melts I'm going to make it my mission to commute every dry day. I am also thinking about getting a commuter bike. Just a hybrid or fixie or something simple. I've been using my roadie and it is a bit of a PITA.
  8. I love kale chips and raw almonds for a salty crunch. I also buy some of those baked tortilla chips once in a while for guacamole. I doubt they are all that great for you either, but I like the taste of them and I don't seem to have a problem with corn. Although it could have something to do with me not dropping any weight. Good luck! Hopefully something works well as a substitute.
  9. I've done some juice fasting for 5-7 days. I hate that you can't work out during that time. So, I am very interested in IF. I'm a strong believer in breakfast NOT being the most important meal of the day, so I always have that after I've been up for a few hours. Then I break that fast gently with fruits and vegetables. It would be an interesting experiment to push that out further and further at times so I didn't have a breakfast and eventually didn't have a lunch. At least on my lower cardio days. Hmmmm... I think I need to read a little more about this. Sounds like it might be what
  10. I graze all day too. I ate a handful of almonds as I read this post. I think it is very common for vegetarians to do. You just don't get a giant serving of fat and protein in one sitting like meat eaters. Do you ever make smoothies? That is my easy way to squash my cravings. It sounds like you want to avoid fruit, but I don't really understand why people do. I must be missing some big news on that one. By 10am I usually have eaten a banana, an apple, 2 cups of spinach, a cup of blueberries, a cup of strawberries, 2 tablespoons of protein powder, spirulina, cocount oil and 6oz of coconu
  11. Dang. I can't wait to have an "after" picture! Great work nerds.
  12. Hey! THat is the No Meat Athlete! I just purchased his roadmap for running a half marathon. Good stuff.
  13. Disclaimer: I'm a mom. I refuse to rock the butt cleavage. I buy Gap jeans. I like the sexy boot and the skinny boot. I was going to wait to go down to a 6 before I bought any more, but all of my pants have faded and have holes. I think it is time to commit to a new pair or two. I am really eyeing some 7 For All Mankind jeans, but even the sale ones are $120 and I don't know that I can drop that kind of money until I get to my ultimate goal size. Also, once I find one I like, I will buy the same size in every wash. I never know when the Gap with discontinue a style.

    Umm...Hello?

    I eat lots of fat. I love that stuff. I make up some guacamole about every other night. It is perfect on a sliced cucumber. Between avocados and nuts, I never seem to have a hard time making sure I have plenty of it.
