Oy I cannot believe how fast and slowly this week went all at the same time!! TGIF!! I have actually had the most productive week in ages! it has been so  great and really allowed me to fit in more stuff without spending any more time! Ahhh the feeling of organization!! I am huge on to do lists.

At any rate week 2 of the ultimate reset is in the bag! I will say being a vegan/vegetarian is not bad at all but because I cannot have food it makes me want it! I have lost 6 lbs from day 1 to now and I am so happy with that! My goal from here on out is just to stick to the plan and stay focused. I will admit I have been stressed so I have definitely had chocolate when I shouldn't have but back on track and putting it behind me!

What I have learned so far is that it is really about balance and a lifelong plan, putting a deadline on a healthy lifestyle just seems like setting yourself up for failure. For me I just want to be healthy and stay fit for the rest of my life! I am starting to get the itch to get back into working out. It is almost a blessing to still have sore feet and ankles or I would probably squeeze in some exercise! But I know in the end that will not help this process along. I do love learning all new ways to eat and cook vegetables that I hadn't done before (see coming recipe). I know a lot of this will stick with me when I am finished with the reset. Stay tuned for a full review and progress pics and measurements!

Also 2 new discoveries that you absolutely need to try : wasabi peas and spicy roasted chick peas! If you like spicy foods trust me you will love these and they are super healthy!!


Zucchini Cashew Soup

Take ¼ cup of cashews and soak in water for one hour. In the meantime take 1-2 zucchini (depending on the size) and cube and steam. Once cashews have soaked throw cashews and cubed zucchini in a blender. Blend until smooth. You may add chicken broth or water to increase liquid content. Then take mixture and heat and enjoy! Optional add veggies as well (once you are heating).

How often do you mix it up and try new recipes?

I agree totally on balance!!

I like switching up the recipes as much as possible. I just enjoy creating new things in the kitchen!
