A Celiac Vegetarian Day
I'm caught between wanting to be a Vegan or just going Vegetarian. Its a tough choice. Which is healthier? Which one will I be able to sustain for life? I'm going Vegetarian for now. Once I get this nailed down I'll consider the Vegan aspect. I think as a Celiac our choices are a bit limited anyway and I wonder why I want to limit it even more? From everything I've read I think a plant based diet is healthier.
So here's my typical day as a Vegetarian so far;
Coffee with Vanilla Coffeemate
Udi's gluten free bagel with humus
Banana or Yogurt or other fruit-I cut up the fruit and stir it into the yogurt.
Salad with Romaine lettuce, tomato, avocado, shredded carrots, olives, dressing
Nuts (I buy a couple different kinds and mix them together)
Spaghetti with sauce with kidney beans and Parmesan
That was yesterday. I vary this from day to day. I still need a vegetarian cookbook because I'm a lousy cook! I need to learn how to be a creative vegetarian in the kitchen so I don't get bored.
So far, I don't miss meat at all. Feel pretty good and I'm sleeping well.
