Here is the new schedule I hope to have for my blog:
- Monday: On Mondays I plan to do a post about a large batch of a recipe that I've made to help get me through with lunches for the week. This will often include salads, grain dishes, and soups and stews.
- Tuesday: Tuesdays I will have talks about nutrition, exercise, and mental and physical health. If you have any topics that you would like me to discuss please let me know!
- Wednesday: Sample daily meals and What I ate Wednesday
- Thursday: Nutrition and Health in the media, and my opinions on it.
- Friday: Healthy Vegan Fridays
- Saturday: I will occasionally post on Saturday about whatever I feel like that day.
- Sunday: Pinterest Sunday is when I will show you guys my favorite Pins from that week. Checking out Pinterest is often something I do on Football Sundays when Kevin is preoccupied, so why not blog about it?
My last post before this one was the day before the Big Day (see post here) and I had requested any questions you might have for me. Ok, so the question turnout wasn't so great, so to take some questions from posts in the past to find some questions to answer (I also added a few of my own). Hope you enjoy!
- "How do you find eating Nutritarian during the winter? The thought of having salads in the winter is not very appealing to me.
- Personally, I love eating Nutritarian most in the colder months of the year. I would much rather have a warm soup than a salad most days, and the winter gives me a bit more of an excuse to do that. That said, raw vegetables are still important in your daily food intake, so I try to get my fresh greens in different ways. One of my favorite is to have Green Smoothies (like my this one). Another one of my favorites is to use fresh lettuce as the shell for wraps or tacos (like this recipe or this one). So, just because you don't feel like eating a salad in the winter doesn't mean that you can't still get your fresh greens in.
- Yes, anyone can use the image I provided as reference for when you do the Eat to Live 6-Week Challenge. Read about it and find the image Here! This image can be used on Facebook, Pinterest, etc. I have no copyright issues and would be happy to hear if it helps others.
- I didn't because it was easier not to, and I regret it. I feel like much of the progress I made over a few weeks of the summer was continually being undone by occasional bad eating and drinking a few nights a week. Most of this was due to social circle influences, and it is always hard to say no to a crowd. Also, from being busy and making such large life transitions, it was difficult to maintain nutritional excellence. All I can say is that I tried, and now that things have settled down, I'm trying a lot harder. Writing this blog really helps me to keep in the right mentality to make healthy choices, and for that I thank my readers :)
- To put it shortly, it was the best day of my life. Kevin and I are so blessed to have had so many wonderful friends and family that made that day as special as it was. The ceremony was beautiful, the reception was fun, and we danced and laughed all night. I couldn't have asked for more! Pictures and a video of our awesome first dance will be coming soon! I promise!
- My favorite fall foods would have to be anything with pumpkin or apple (says everyone ever in existence with access to pumpkins and apples)! But seriously, Fall is my favorite season for so many reasons, but most of them food related! Here are a few of my recipes that just scream fall: Baked Sweet Potatoes with Apples and Walnuts, Roasted Apples with Parsnips, Pumpkin Basil Soup, Dr. Fuhrman's Apple Strudel, and Pumpkin Wild Rice Soup.
Here is a question for my readers: How do you like my new blog design and the schedule I'm planning on following? Any other suggestions I could incorporate?
