Ok, so far I have read a lot about plant based diets and it has motivated me (a little). I will be honest. It is hard to go from meat to no meat, or less meat. My brain is conditioned to have protein with every meal. I think to myself in the morning, ok fruit and eggs, or fruit and string cheese. Everything in my head has to do with animal and fruit or veggie. I need to learn how to program myself. Did other people go through this too? ..Other newbies to a veggie based diet?
So, the other day I went veggie shopping, no meat! Nothing! I bought: spinach, kale, collard greens, onions, tomatoes, cauliflower, broccoli, and yams. I did buy bananas, apples, and pears too. This is a good start. Yesterday I made the collard greens for the first time. In a saute pan I added some water, let it begin to boil. I chopped the leaves and threw them in with a little garlic salt. It was good!!!! I was so excited that it was so good. I wish you could have seen me. HAHA! So, then I read about collard greens. This is what I found:
Collard greens are so good for us. Antioxidants, cancer fighting, anti-inflammatory, vitamins, and the list goes on.. Try it people!
