My favorite Breakfast



My favorite breakfast! A mixture of cereals (Nabisco Shredded Wheat, Cascadian Farm Raisin Bran and Cheerio's are some of the ones I use) with fruit on top, usually bananas, strawberries and blueberries with almond milk.

Dinner Tonight! The Happy Herbivore's Black Bean Burgers!



here is the link for the recipe if you want to print it out:

My son and I don't like mustard and we would cut back on it next time. My husband loves mustard and he couldn't taste the mustard if you want to gauge if you want to cut back or not depending on if you like mustard. :)

I met Rip Esselstyn at Whole Foods Market




On January 10th my daughter and I were shopping at Whole Foods in downtown Atlanta and I saw a copy of Engine 2. There were flyers there by the books about a Breakfast event at the John's Creek location. (This picture was taken at that event on January 25). I went home and downloaded Engine 2 by Rip Esselstyn and read it immediately! I started eating this way right away. Not long after that I was at Whole Foods and I saw where they were having meetings about eating the Engine 2 way so I signed right up! I rented Forks Over Knives from Netflix and found it very eye opening. There was a Engine 2 Kitchen Rescue I watched on Netflix Steaming also. I highly recommend both of these movies.I also bought Prevent and Reverse Heart Disease by Caldwell B. Esselstyn Jr. It has great info and recipes also! I thought I would share some things I eat. Please comment any tips or recipes!
