My family's excellent adventure to better health!

I often hear comments from people about how we eat grass, or that they could never eat my “bird diet.” They think we only eat veggies and salads all day with some bird seed thrown in. They often worry I’m starving myself. I have even been told that I must be since I’m staying thin. It amazes me that when people are able to sample some of our bird food and discover that it is not only delicious but filling and satisfying, they are often more open to at least thinking about eating some plant based meals.

I was definitely very full tonight! I came home and decided I had everything I needed to make chili and I had chili and corn muffins ready in about an hour and 15 min. My husband and I both had seconds and enjoyed every bite! No deprivation here!!

Breakfast- Oats with blueberries, raisins, banana, grape nuts and almond milk

Snack- banana

Lunch- Leftover gorgeous black rice salad from The Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease cookbook, whole wheat pita.

Supper- More black rice salad, chili with cilantro and cornbread muffins
