Vegan + diet = not so bad

With less than 3 months before my wedding dress arrives and one shot at alterations, I am buckling down on the ole diet. One day a week I will allow myself to indulge in cashew creaminess, desserts and other deliciousness but the other 6 days I am religiously tracking my nutritionals.

And you know what? It’s not that bad!

This is typical of what my daytime food looks like.

Breakfast:  1 pink grapefruit, 1/4 cup blueberries, 1/2 cup strawberries, 1/2 cup live culture vanilla soy yogurt.

Lunch: vegan boca patty on sandwich thins with spicy mustard and Veganaise (indulgence!); and salad with mixed greens, baby spinach, carrots, celery, white mushrooms, 1/3 cup chili garbanzos, and balsamic vinegar.

Snack: celery, carrots and cherry tomatoes.
