|Vegan pizza- photo doesn't do it justice!|
Yesterday was day one of my 31 day challenge for the month of July. I kicked it off in style with a very healthy day of strenuous yard work and vibrant vegetarian meals, for lunch we enjoyed this homemade pizza with a whole grain crust, fresh tomato sauce, shallots, basil and broccoli, seasoned with a little oregano and nutritional yeast. It was pretty delicious!
For dinner we had a stir-fry of veggies, atop whole grain rice, which I always find to be a meal I thoroughly enjoy, despite its simplistic nature. I feel completely full, don't feel at all deprived and overall have found it to be a really easy transition. Breakfast's have been a little bland with whole grain cereal and rice milk or fruity bread toasted with a little fruit spread on top, when we go shopping I will get some more frozen berries and fruit to toss in the mix, and hopefully spice things up a bit.

Tonight we went for a walk and then finished up the night with some more yard work until dusk fell, I wish I'd snapped a picture of our progress before it got dark, but I forgot. We planted a tiny row of corn, a nice sage, 3 large strawberry plants, a flat of lobelia and a few geraniums. Unfortunately when I was working in the yard yesterday, Beatrix decided to take a nap right behind me, I didn't see her and got the pleasure of rolling my ankle when I stepped back. It's still aching and is a nagging reminder that life will always throw you an unexpected challenge.
I feel a little weird that I don't have a bikey picture in this post, purists of the bike blog don't fret- you can see the wheel of the Yuba just barely in the picture above. Tomorrow we're going to get out on the Mundo and test out my ankle, I actually think it may be better on the bike than it is walking. I'm still in disbelief that I was lucky enough to win the Boda Boda, what a lovely gift!
