    Hello! 

    So happy you're on this site.

    Sean's reply is an excellent resource. Like him and Linda,  I tend to eat simply and follow Linda's guidance.

    That means I start each day with greens (steamed kale, or collards, or a big salad), yams  (sweet potatoes), and beans. It's very filling and I find I don't get very hungry until late afternoon.

    At that point I typically eat a couple pounds of roasted vegetables (mushrooms, peppers, zuchini, onions, broccoli, cabbage, carrots, and the like), along with potatoes or rice. Then a couple kinds of fruit.

    A couple times a week I have oatmeal (cold in the summer and hot in the winter), with berries and walnuts.

    I dress my greens, potatoes, etc. with a good vegan cheese sauce or salsa or berry vinegrette.

    Eating this way allowed me to trim down to my ideal weight and maintain it easily.  I also have thyroid disease that is well managed and I'm asymptomatic.  I was never hungry while dropping my excess weight. I love that i don't measure (unless I'm making a recipe) or count calories and can I eat until I'm satisfied.

    I hope you'll find and join the ATX Alive Facebook group. There's also an excellent plant-based cooking class the second Thursday of every month at the Buda YMCA. It's taught by Chef Shana Brannon.

    Please let me know how I can support you as you make this leap to excellent health.
