Focus on Whole Foods

I’ve let myself get a little lax when it comes to being vegan. I’ve vowed to get that back on track starting today. I really need to focus on whole foods.

What exactly are whole foods anyway? Wikipedia defines it as: Whole foods are foods that are unprocessed and unrefined, or processed and refined as little as possible, before being consumed. Whole foods typically do not contain added ingredients, such as salt, carbohydrates, or fat. Examples of whole foods include unpolished grains, beans, fruits, vegetables and non-homogenized dairy products.

So there you have it, bread and cheese is not on the list! 🙂

The term is often confused with organic food, but whole foods are not necessarily organic, nor are organic foods necessarily whole.

My weakness is breads and cheese and neither of those is any good. My weight has climbed up a pound too. So starting today it’s back to only natural whole foods. No more breads and no more cheese.

This morning after my run I made myself a smoothie.

Almond milk
1 Banana
1 Peach
2 Kale Leaves
1 TBS Hemp seeds
1 cup of Ice

Some good stuff!

Here’s to living clean and whole foods.
