Lately I’ve been making a lot more meat meals; fish, chicken and even some pork since my husband is away so much. Not many vegan meals going on these days….it’s kinda nice for a change!
Breakfast for me: Simply Orange Juice, Banana and Egg/Cheese on English muffin.
(bad cheese I know but oh so good every once in a while).
A little trip to good old Costco got us $50 worth of cheese!!! The 5 year cheddar is mine, the middle parmesan is for my neighbour and the 2 year cheddar on the right is for my Aunt/Uncle we are visiting soon.
Did you really think me, my 3-year-old and my vegan husband was going to eat all of this! 😉
Who eats (needs) this much CHEESE???????
Lunch: The most random lunch I have every made!
Cherries, strawberries and blueberries from our local farmer’s markets.
Left over (cold) BBQ’d porkchops.
Avocado….missing in this photo is a hard boiled egg I ate with the avocado.
WHAT was I thinking?
Well, I shared the avocado with baby H, I couldn’t get enough berries into me and I wanted to empty the fridge of leftovers.
Supper: Russian Chicken over rice……..YUM!
That was a lot of random foods in the last week!
The decision to stop eating certain foods: Pop & Milk
About a month ago I decided to stop drinking pop (mainly Coca-cola) after reading an article online. I’ve read all that information before about Coke and how terrible it is for you but I would just limit myself to “only when I eat out with work” and “don’t bring it in the house”. And then it turned into “I’ll just buy these mini-cans because I can’t drink a full can anymore”. I even stored them in a place that I don’t look that often and only had 1-2 in the fridge if I remembered. Who drinks warm pop? Yuck! It would force me to plan ahead if I wanted one, and I was okay with that.
It had been a few weeks since I had a Coke and I thought it would be good to just have one more before saying Goodbye! I went grocery shopping and decided I would buy that one “last” bottle of Coke to drink at dinner that night. As I walked by numerous stands filled with pop I kept saying I’ll get it at the end. I got home and realised I forgot to by the Coke. I was really looking forward to one last hurrah but it didn’t happen. It’s been over a month since I’ve had a pop. Even though I’ve had two occasions that I really, REALLY wanted a pop…I didn’t cave in and go buy it. Yeah, me!
I’ve also decided to stop drinking milk! When I was 17, I was getting really really sick from foods I was eating but couldn’t figure it out. I ended up in the hospital twice because I was so sick – yuck. I had allergy tests done and then a lactose intolerant test done too! Sure enough, dairy was the problem. I gave up all dairy except yogurt for about 7 years and then starting drinking lactose free milk and taking lactose pills if I had ice cream or cream cheese. Recently I’ve been having some stomach problems and decided that cutting milk out of my diet couldn’t hurt me. I rarely have ice cream so I’m cool with taking a pill for that. It’s the 5 year block of cheddar cheese that I’m going to have a HARD time giving up. We’ll see if that happens. So, for now I’m drinking coconut milk that my husband drinks.
What have you been eating lately?
Have you EVER spent $50 on cheese? JUST cheese?
Do you drink milk or something else?

I love love love cheese! lol It’s my weakness, more than chocolate. I have been eating a lot more fruit. I still need to work on the veggies though. Interestingly about the soda, I used to be a diet coke addict. I know. Bad. I would go through a twelve pack every other day. Now, I have one once in a while. Sometimes I go days without one. Replaced with water. I have tried to do this a million times before and failed. For some reason, this time its sticking. And I feel great! Oh, and I hate milk. Ick….My daughter loves Almond milk. I might try it…
Oh, I love chocolate too. My ultimate favourite chocolate has to have mint in it 🙂 Almond milk is nice too.
Oh yeah, we have definitely spent that much on cheese… on plenty of occasions. We are HUGE cheese fans. It was the only thing I missed about having to give up dairy while nursing. And when we have bought $50 in cheese it has been for just us or when we are having cheeses for everyone at xmas. That 5 yr old balderson is easily our favorite. Now that said, when we do spend $50 on cheese for just us it’s because it’s going to last a long time… we don’t eat that much in a week or anything!!
Pop I have never been a big fan of anyway, so at least that’s never an issue for me!
Now that I am back to eating dairy I still have no desire for milk itself – I am still drinking coconut milk in tea etc.
If Sai ate cheese we would TOTALLY spend $50 on it! This 5 year old balderson is really hard for him not to eat it…lol! This block lasts a long time for us too, all you need is a little piece here and there.
Sometimes the most random lunch plates are the best. I love the variety you had to choose from.
At least there is a good variety of colours on my plate, right!
I actually really try no to drink milk or soda either. . . with the exception of ginger ale kicks every once in awhile. Cow’s milk just kind of grosses me out anymore, and I just can’t stand all the crazy ingredients I don’t understand in soda. Awful.
PS: your food looks AMAZING. Zach is jealous of the cheese.
Yeah ginger ale is pretty awesome. I guess I just can’t get over how much crap/chemicals is in Coca Cola. Yuck. I’m hoping I can stick to it!
No I’m the same way. There is not a single good thing about Coke for you, so I absolutely try and steer clear of it.
You got a lot of cheese! Hubby and I love cheese! We would go to this huge international grocery store at least once a month to do our grocery and get different kinds of cheese from other countries! WE love them! 🙂
