I know, sometimes, i couldn't do the exact things as book says, but i stay in healthy, vegetarian eating style. I used to drink lots of milk and since i started this diet and i had to change it to almond milk i feel better. Normally, we i drink milk i feel glut and inflate. Maybe, i am sensitive to milk. We will see what will happen after these 22 days :)

May 10, 2017

DAY 8

Week 2 starts... It feels good. You feel that you've done something important for your body. For Breakfast I had a green juice with pear and apple. I added my spinach which still I had in my fridge. 

Between breakfast and lunch i ate some nuts with my dark coffee. The most important thing for me in this plan is stop drinking milk, specially cafe latte which I am addicted to it. 

For lunch, I had lentil salad and took 2 piece of dark chocolate after gym with an apple. For dinner just salad with some fresh olives. Italian ones which I really like...

May 06, 2017

DAY 7

If I want to be honest I have to confess that it is hard to shopping and cooking all the time. Specially, when it is Sunday and you don't have anything at all at home. We didn't had toast for breakfast and just ate a banana and some nuts. For lunch mix a half cup of lentils with half cup of chickpeas instead of chickpeas sandwich and mixed it with spinach which I had from last week juice and some chopped tomatoes.It was delicious and fulfilling. 

For dinner, because of the bread I ate at Paris I preferred to eat salad only with some avocados and pomegranate sauce. My favorite sauce recipe. I think the most important thing is to be vegan and have different ideas about how to cook and what to eat. If you don't have time to prepare each meal no worries. It is important to do the concept and then adapt your situation to the plan.

Tomorrow is the start of the second week. I am really happy to did it :) Let me know about your experience :)

See you tomorrow !

DAY 6

The day 6th!!  I had to go to Paris for the Ritz cooking class. I decided to stay healthy during my visit. For breakfast , I took some nuts with a coffee and a banana. For lunch, I was already in Paris and I went to pain quotidian , because it was the only place that I like and it is really healthy. For lunch, I've ordered avocado toast with a mint tea. Simple but delicious. Around afternoon, with all the good smells that I've experienced during the cooking class, I was so starving.

One cup of dark coffee with some dark chocolate made it easier. For dinner just had a quinoa salad and came back to Brussels. The hardest part was , being in Paris and don't eat Entrecôte !!! That was difficult. 

I am dreaming about being fit for summer and come back!

  A Bientôt Paris

DAY 5

Now, we are on the 5th day :) . I am happy to be here. For breakfast , it was quinoa which I didn't like the idea of eating quinoa in the morning and I took oat meal instead. Added some cinnamon as always with a banana. I am in love with this breakfast. It is delicious and makes you full till noon. 

I was at university until afternoon and I had two important presentation which was really boring. In the middle I took a cup of black coffee with my 85% chocolate. For lunch I've prepared sushi. Honestly, I've never thought that I can make sushi by myself. It was one of the hardest thing to do in the world.

I prepared some rice and cut some vegetables with mint and avocados. Put the Nori and then fill it with rice and the vegetables. Sushi ginger and some wasabi...Hmmm it was so good. You have to try it at home :D

For snack , I took some fresh fruits and tea and for dinner I've ate the left over of sushi. I didn't have time to make dinner. I really feel good with this diet. Tomorrow I have go to the Paris for a cooking class at Hotel Ritz. I can't cook:(

But I will try to eat healthy... I am going to let you know about that.

See you tomorrow :).

DAY 4

Today, I had the same breakfast as yesterday. Chia pudding :)

I went to university and i love so starving. The only thing i thought it could be to eat was strawberries and a black coffee. For lunch i had pizza. I prepared the crust easily step by step from the book. 3/4 cup of complete flour and a half cup of tapioca flour with water and salt and a bit of olive oil. Then, I've prepared vegetarian mozzarella with cashews and water and then cook it for few minutes. It was so good you couldn't even imagine that. I was so disappointed when iFor dinner, it was just zucchini noodle with carrot and some sauce with tahini. By the way, in
was
making it. However, was amazingly good for being diet :)between,I've eaten two spoons of hummus with vegetables and ye piece of dark chocolate. 

Now, I am drinking my green tea and preparing myself for tomorrow :)  I hope I can finish this 22 days perfectly.

DAY 3

Hello everyone, Today was the 3rd day. I think i get used to this diet easily. I had chia seeds pudding with some fresh berries and cinnamon. I put half a cup of chia seeds in 2 cups of almond milk over the night and in the morning the pudding was ready!

For lunch, I had lentil soup with tomato and some avocados. Yummy and fresh. All you need a can of lentil with some chopped tomatoes after 10 minutes you have your soup. 

In the afternoon, was so difficult. I had guests for dinner and i had to prepare delicious dinner and dessert for them and I couldn't eat any of them. I've prepared the roasted cauliflower with lemon and garlic and some green salad. 

When you have guests is so difficult to take care of the diet. 

Anyway, I have a plan and I need to stick to it for summer :)

 

Have a good night :)

DAY 2

Hello everyone, I am here to talk about my second day vegan diet. Surprisingly, it was not hard at all. I had a green smoothie in the morning with kale, spinach, banana, dates and apple. I put everything in a mixer and ready to drink!

At 12 o'clock I was so starving and I couldn't't  wait anymore. I prepared a sweet potato and put in in oven for about 20 minutes with olive oil and salt and pepper. Cooked black bean in a pot with water and garlic which took me about 2 hours to cook ( In the book said only takes 45 minuets ). It was really delicious and fulfilling. Around 4 pm I had two pieces of 85% dark chocolate with a black coffee and went to university. 

I don't know classes can make me hungry or the diet . Anyway I ate about a packet of fresh strawberries during my next class. (I think it was around 300 gr, I know it is  a lot).

For dinner, I had artichoke salad with some avocados and tomatoes with balsamic vinegar and olive oil. I am fine and not starving for the moment. However, the night is long...

Have a good night :).

DAY 1

Today, I just started this 22 days revolution challenge. As you know 1st of  May is a national holiday which makes this start difficult. However, I told myself that I can do that and start reading the first chapter of the book. It is really revolutionary and I have to share this experience on Likeittotaste.

It explains you how can you change your habits and restart your life in a way that you want, more energetic, lose weight and being healthy. 

And now I need to start, it's time for breakfast! I made an oatmeal with almonds milk, banana and some red berries which were frozen ( It costs you less and you don't need to go to shopping everyday for fresh fruits).

I added some cinnamon to my oat meal ( the book didn't mention that but I think cinnamon makes it delicious and can boost my metabolism).

 

For lunch, I didn't have anything healthy at home. So, I went to Bio shop to buy some fresh vegetables and the things that I needed for recipes. You have the shopping list for each week, you shouldn't be worry about that. I made quinoa and lentils with a large carrot, some spinach ,tomato and cucumber to give some salad taste to my dish. It was delicious and fulfilling. Easy to make and it just took me 15 minutes to prepare it ( By the way, I used lentils can ).

 

In  the afternoon, I took a nap and honestly, maybe that makes it easier for the first day because when I woke up I was starving. I took 2 pieces of 85% dark chocolate with an apple and went to the gym to start my first day of exercise .

I shouldn't say that but it was hard! very hard actually...

After 25 minuets of exercises and 20 minuets of cardio I was dead. I came home and prepare the dinner. I had walnut tacos with the lettuce leaves. The picture of the book was pretty nice but I wasn't sure it could be delicious or enough for me. Anyway, I washed lettuce leaves  and prepare the walnuts with some spices like cumin and garlic, chopped some avocado and persil to garnish it. Added some olive oil and balsamic vinegar for the taste. It was not delicious but it was tasty enough to eat as a salad. 

 

Now, It's five minuets after 9 pm and I don't feel hungry which is a good sign :) . I hope tomorrow will be easy also and I have adapt myself as fast as I can. See you tomorrow and have a nice evening guys :) .
