When filling out your NCAA tournament brackets this week - be sure to pick Morehead State University to go all the way! Morehead State is my alma matter, and relatively unknown college in Morehead, KY. But they are on fire - winning 12 of their last 13 games. They will be going up against Louisville and Rick Pitino (former UK coach). It will be a Kentucky vs. Kentucky game. Plus, one of my very good friends from high school is the Athletic Director there. Sooooooo.........Go EAGLES!!!
Vegetarian Week 2 Recap
I probably didn't do as well this week. I still didn't eat any meat, but I ate out a couple of times (eggplant parmesan from Olive Garden - yum), and maybe some Starbucks. Ok, I can't be perfect all the time. I might have enjoyed a Cadbury Egg on Sunday as well....man those things are AWESOME!! Anyway, I had a little more sugar and a few non-whole foods this week, but still did fairly well overall.
I'm still feeling good, but there were a couple of days this week I felt a little weak. I'm not sure that I'm getting the proper daily nutrition. I know that you certainly can get the proper nutrition as a vegetarian, I'm just not sure I know exactly how to do that the right way yet. I am still reading the Thrive book, and I also got another book from a friend at work. I haven't started reading it yet. Any help from my fellow vegetarian readers would be great. If I am eating alot of healthy whole fruits and veggies - should I be counting the amount in some way? My main protein source has been nuts and beans - as well as dairy. I'm not too interested at this point in trying soy meat substitutes - plus I'm not sure how I feel about them yet. Anyway - thoughts, ideas???
My favorite dish this week - Tostadas. Yum. Corn tortilla, black beans, corn, red peppers, onions, tomatoes, romaine lettuce, cheese, avocados, salsa and some red wine vinegar and olive oil; a close second were veggie lasagna roll-ups.
Speaking of being a vegetarian - I know there are alot of schools of thought on this - and some people think you can't excel at sports without the protein supplied by meat. I received this article from Roxanne that I thought I would share with you - 15 Famous Athletes Who Are Vegetarians.
On a totally separate note - this is the view from my back door this morning. Seriously??? Haven't we had enough snow for one Winter. I took a vacation day today to get some errands done - yep it's going to be just awesome getting out in the snow and muck again!!!
