My transition from cluttered to simple living.

Breakfast and Lunch... every day!

When I started writing this blog, my desire was to do an overhaul on all aspects of my life. I wanted to eat better, and live better. Diet and exercise would be introduced with a goal of "simple and effective." I found the GI Diet most suits my needs, and I am thrilled to say that I have lost 13 pounds. I have many more to lose but this has become a way of life and I feel better than I have in years.

Breakfast (above) and lunch (below) are, for the most part, the same everyday. I make a bowl of large flake oatmeal and as it is cooking, I throw in a handful of raisins and cranberries. I usually serve it with soy milk, and I look forward to this dish every day. Lunch consists of a bowl of low fat natural yogurt, topped with fresh fruit.

Supper is whatever I can scrounge. I am trying to stick to salads or lean meat and veggies. When I am hungry, I snack on high fibre, low fat bran muffins. I think I eat like a queen...

Who could argue that point?

  1. What a great diet! No wonder you are losing weight on it. I love your attitude towards food, and you're going the right way on the scale, too. And the pictures are making me hungry.

  2. I will often have oatmeal, raisins and cranberries for supper, especially in the winter. However, I like lots of brown sugar on mine. I hate hate hate yogurt. :)

  3. LOL! You are the first person...other than my grandson...thatI have met who hates yogurt!

  4. Such willpower...none of that looks good to me. ha
