What Did You Eat And Drink Last?

@quietbeautiful - KFC - YUM!

@Tornadic Thoughts - I like those suggestions, especially the idea of using walnuts in that manner. I'm going to have to do some studying up on that. Is the liquid amino to replace amino acids that you'd get from say chicken or another protein source? Just curious as I'm kind of turning away from animal protein except for dairy (and I know that's not so good for me, but well..). I like to wander around the health food stores around me too, so I can check it out. :cool:

My last meal was a boiled egg, 1/2 banana, 2 sl fiber toast, hot tea w/ milk and splenda. Tank is full, and engine is revved and ready to go. :tup:

I use the liquid amino as a cleaner version of soy sauce. Here's their FAQ that explains it in much more detail:

Here's a site that helps determine protein content of various foods. I was floored to learn the protein content of foods we never even associate with having protein simply because of how we've been taught and marketed to:
High Protein Foods

Cronometer is another cool tool to use if you wish to closely monitor your nutritional intake. They have a free basic version that you can enter your food intake, exercise, etc. and helps you keep better track of it. It helped me big time when I first started my plant-based journey.

I also learned not only is the dairy and such not so good for me, it's even worse for the animals being forced to produce it. That sealed the deal in my heart, and other various organs they were wishing to surgically remove while I was choosing to feast on it. Old habits were so very hard to break, but wow, once I did, there was no denying the ill effects of the choices of days gone by.

The irony of grocery stores only having one or two aisles marked as "health foods" really opened my eyes, too. Ummmm......that sort of speaks volumes about the rest of the aisles, ay? lol Happy wandering and researching. It surely is fascinating.
 
All I've had so far today is coffee, seltzer, water, and a couple of pieces of my mom's Italian Easter bread. It's a traditional Italian thing, just a kind of thick, sweet bread with a lot of eggs in it. We call it buchalad but I think my grandfather made up that name. There's also controversy in the family as to whether or not there's a D on the end. A few of the women on my mom's side of the family (her father was Italian) make it. I personally think my mom's is the best. She also usually screws up and doesn't cook it enough, and I love it when it's uncooked in the middle.
