So I have major news! Someone suggested for me to use Cronometer to make sure that I am eating enough calories, and I just broke 2,000 calories! I have now eaten 2,030 calories today, and I just had a wonderful dinner of 2 steamed potatoes over snow peas with squash sauce on top! I feel so full and content, and especially so because my brother started leaving me alone when he saw how much food I was consuming. Even my mom left me alone and seemed satisfied that I was eating a lot of food. For breakfast I had an odd smoothie of 3 bananas, 1 large stick of celery, and 2 apples. It was ok, but I was up really early this morning, so I just kinda threw something together. I dont really suggest that recipe, by the way. I will just kinda be throwing stuff together for the next two days until I can get to the grocery store to buy lots and lots of fruit. Anywho, For lunch I had a salad, a banana, some dried craisins, pistachios, an apple, and a vegan granola bar. I feel like I could have eaten more, though, and I was hungry again by the end of school. I am definitely packing more in my lunch tomorrow, especially what fruit we still have left in the house. I don't think that my mom, or anyone that I talk to really, understand that I need to be eating a LOT more fruit. Everyone says that they wouldn't be able to go vegan because they "hate vegetables. " and yes veggies are extraordinarily important, but I think that they underestimate how much fruit, especially bananas, that I am supposed to be eating. Do any of you get the same reaction from people? A lot of people that I talk to also say "I love me my meat, so I could never go vegan." I feel like they really could give up meat, as all of us have done, if they just realized how easy it is and how much they really don't need it.
Anywho, do any of you have really good high calorie or high carb recipes for me to try? I feel like I need to eat more colories, and after how full I feel from this dinner that I just ate, I am excited about feeling this way after every other meal that I have. See you guys later!
