I'm a vegetarian who can't cook well. I'm trying to learn how to cook, eat a healthy diet, eat less chocolate and lose weight. I'm here to find cooking ideas. I have been following Eat to Live book by Joel Furhman.

I'm finding out that when I eat mostly fruits and veggies I lose weight (I've lost over 15 pounds) and when I start eating the junk the weight comes back (hey doesn't that makes sense). And here is the best part, I'm never hungry.

I exercise 40 minutes on my elliptical, and I have been doing P90X three times a week (finished P90X and will start again sometime). I also do some exercise DVDs, lift weights and other exercise. I always need ideas for other exercise ideas.

My Goals:
Losing weight by eating healthy foods. Learning to cook will help.

I have been following the Eat To Live plan.

Eating lots of fruits and veggies and some beans, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

My Program:
Exercise 20 minutes a day on the elliptical and 20-30 minutes with DVD cadio exercises. I also lift weights with exercise DVD's and other exercise.

Personal Information:
I have been teaching kids to play the piano for 20 years. I like playing piano and guitar. I like to listen to rock, movie music, classical and jazz.
Scifi and action adventure movies are my favorite movies to go see.
Reading books is very fun and exiciting. It's takes me away from it all. I like scifi, action adventure and fantasy books the best.

Other Information:
I have been a vegetarian for 20 years. I live in Kansas.

    How have we been SP friends for so long and I didn't realize you lived in Kansas?!?! Or I just plain forgot...which is more likely the case. I'm in KCMO!! Small-ish world, huh!?! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    I have decided to stop saying yes to people and situations that don't support my well-being. Instead, I will say..

    Yes to my happiness.
    Yes to my growth.
    And Yes to all the people and things that inspire me to be authentic and whole, while at the same time accepting me just as I am.

    My Yes from here on out is...
    My pledge to LIVE HONESTLY.
    My commitment to LOVE MYSELF FIERCELY..
    And my cry to CREATE MY BEST LIFE POSSIBLE... YES!!!
    - Scott Stabile

    TGIF. A healthy weekend to be.. coming up!. emoticon emoticon
