I want to start out first with a BIG thank you to Dr. Fuhrman for all of his hard work. The Eat For Health books are amazing--as are all of his other books. He has changed my life! I may have lost 6 pounds over the last 2 weeks, but I also lost a grand total of 39 pounds over the last year. Thanks to Dr. Fuhrman, and my wonderful trainer Jamie Atlas (see his link!) And also a big thank you for all of you reading my blog--and all of your wonderful comments! I feel great today!! But yesterday actually sort of started out kind of crappy...
Haze and I both did not feel well--we both had headaches. Maybe still detoxing? Hazes GERD is gone at this point, but his colitis has not slowed down at all. We were both really grouchy!! (especially him!!) Haze wanted steak, lobster, chicken and eggs for dinner and I told him "NO"!! Neither of us was excited about the dinner--it was called Thai Vegetable Curry and I thought to myself, "Ugh--I don't like yellow curry." Haze went to lay down in the bedroom while I started cooking dinner. I was standing in the kitchen reading the recipe and saw that it called for freshly-juiced carrot juice--and I just started to bawl my eyes out! It's not a big deal to make carrot juice--I swear it's not! But it seems like I've made carrot juice and cleaned out my fricken juicer like every day this week!! I took my melt-down to the couch to cool off and saw that there was a Bugs Bunny Marathon on TV which cheered me up right away. Yes I'm 44 years old, and yes Bugs Bunny still cracks me up!! (I mean seriously, it was The Rabbit of Seville) Anyway, I finished making dinner and we sat down to eat and were pleasantly surprised! Then while my wonderful and chivalrous husband cleaned the kitchen (and the juicer), I popped on to my blog here and found that I suddenly had like 900 hits for that day alone! I was linked to Dr. Fuhrman's own blog--and voilà, I'm famous!! Ha ha !!! Check it out:
Since this whole idea started from watching the movie Julie and Julia, I seriously think it's time that I contact Dr. Fuhrman and ask him who he would like to play himself in our upcoming movie, Jana and Joel. Kevin Spacey perhaps? Ha haha :O)

Anyway, the day ended on a high note and here is what was on the menu for yesterday:
Oatmeal and Fruit Compote
This was tasty and super easy to prepare. I soaked the fruit in soy milk, then made cinnamon and vanilla oatmeal to accomany the Fruit Compote. We gave it an "A"
Leftover Speedy Vegetable and Bean Soup
Raw Veggies and Leftover Dip
Mixed GreensTahini Dressing
Thai Vegetable Curry
I thought the Tahini Dressings was one of the best dressings I've ever tasted! It is definitely a favorite--creamy and very flavorful. It was wonderful on a simple green salad. I gave it an A+/ Haze said A-. The Thai Curry was waaaay better than I thought it was going to be. I loved the velvety base and thought it had tons of flavor. Plus it was really pretty. I do prefer a "burn your face off" red curry--I think I will try to make something like that next time--but I will definitely make this one again. I gave this a B+ (leaning towards A-) and Haze gave it a "B." He thought it needed salt--but still really liked it alot!
I had a banana which I gave an A+!
