What's for Dinner?

So lately I've been extremely addicted to Pinterest, and I've got over 50 boards going, and over three thousand I'm making myself actually try things I pin, especially recipes! I even started a board for that too! LOL

I decided to make a chickpea avocado salad with feta, tomatoes, red onion...and I added a lemon oregano oil and fresh lime juice. It's delish!

 I also made a grilled veggie wrap with brie cheese...YUM!
Just look at that gooey brie cheese!

I'm a month into my journey to a healthier lifestyle. I've changed alot of things in my diet, including no more meat. I do make an exception for shellfish, and have on 3 occasions during this first month, had chicken. I've been enjoying other protein rich foods including Quinoa, chickpeas, legumes, whole grains....and no longer drink dairy, unless it's a macchiato...but I'm limiting myself to 1 a week...maybe 2...LOL I'm in love with other forms of milk, Almond milk or coconut milk. Not really a fan of just drinking a glass, but it's delish with Kashi cereals, or poured over strawberries as a 'dessert'.  Cutting out sugars is hard, especially cause I'm a pastry chef by day....we have to test things, and work with temptations all day long! But I've been pretty good. I've noticed I crave something sweet after a meal, so I keep frozen fruit to munch on, instead of icecream, or have an apple with unsweetened/unsalted peanut butter, and if I want it a bit sweeter, add a little honey or agave nectar.  So after a month of just making small changes here and there, I've lost 15 lbs, without really trying too time to get a little stricter on myself and exercise!
