Our co-op has giant heads of local romaine lettuce, so I washed one and ripped each leaf into a few pieces and put them in bowls that should last through tomorrow. That's my salad, ha---easy eating in the car, and it tastes good as is. I've been having oatmeal and fruit for breakfast. At the meditation retreat, they had a great salad bar and fruit. So I just cooked up my starches in the instapot and ate them with salad and fruit.
I posted a few weeks ago about a book on human evolution I read and what my conclusions were for the ideal diet. It was my attempt to form a low-glycemic (because the foods of our ancestors were likely this) vegan diet (my requirement for ethical reasons). It has lots of vegetables, beans, nuts and seeds (the latter to replace the meat our ancestors ate), and some fruit. Well, the only problem is, it's not the diet I want to follow. I tire of it quickly, and I tend to overeat nuts and get a stomach ache. I think what I want to follow most closely resembles Dr. McDougall's Maximum Weight Loss plan. Any eating plan with the words "Maximum Weight Loss" sounds drastic and unappealing to me, which always made me think it's too extreme and I'm must be missing out, but in fact it is a very enjoyable and reasonably cheap way to eat, and I wish it had a different name. like the maximum awesome way to eat. It has my favorite foods: oats, rice, potatoes, sweet potatoes, beans veggies, and fruit.
