One of my new favorite healthy recipes is the vegan corn chowder adapted by the lovely Taylor R. I have been a massive fan of her cooking videos for a while now but only recently have I had the courage to actually try one. I am a complete wimp when it comes to trying new recipes! I’m so glad I tried this one though, not only is it super easy to make but also affordable for someone like me who is on the student budget buzz. All I needed was one ladle in a bowl for dinner and I completely satisfied! I think for me eating warm food in Winter is really important. I never really feel satisfied with a salad for dinner when the weather is cold no matter what the portion.
Eating healthy recently has made me really happy and feeling much more full of energy. I have lost a huge amount of weight in a really short amount of time which has been awesome but I am trying, now to up my calorie intake to make sure the loss is sustainable for the long term. Taylor also did a really interesting post over on her blog about nutrition and her weight loss journey that might interest some of you! Another lifestyle change that I have been considering is changing up how much animal products I am consuming and trying out a vegan lifestyle. It has been a way of living that I have considered for sometime now however I’ve have been reluctant due to the company I work for not aligning with vegan values. I have an appreciation for both ways of thinking and living but at this moment I am still considering the leap for myself so I can hopefully avoid any contractions.
On a separate note I went for an ultra sound today to test for popliteal arterial entrapment syndrome in my legs. It was quite nice to go into a hospital and not have people sticking needles into my legs for once. No diagnosis was made on today and I am not too sure when I will receive the results but I am crossing my fingers for a diagnosis for my pain in the near future! Anyway I hope you are having a lovely Thursday morning and that you are thinking happy thoughts!
Thank you so much for being here again, I love you!
