Working hard to eat healthily all of the time.

I am about to celebrate my 4 year anniversary of no meat/animal product cooking. My goal everyday is to be a 100% dietary vegan.

I live in the Cleveland, Ohio area, the least sunny spot in the US four months of the year.
I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am quite ill with several auto-immune diseases, a blood disorder and Mitochondrial Disease. This severely restricts my energy level. I can't do vigorous exercise anymore but I need to keep moving even ...

I enjoy cooking and spending time with my family. I am quite ill with several auto-immune diseases, a blood disorder and Mitochondrial Disease. This severely restricts my energy level. I can't do vigorous exercise anymore but I need to keep moving even if it is at a snails pace.

I love to try new recipes and cook several times a week in bulk amounts so I don't have to cook as often. I eat very low fat and healthy whole foods: tons of veggies, legumes, whole grains and whole fruits. I do make desserts from time to time... some days when I feel particularly low... I eat dessert twice....LOL

Over the past 3 1/2 years I have re-learned how to cook and I love my new recipes. I eat well and am happy that my diet works for me.

Hi, so nice to meet you on the FOK team forum! I read something about your experience with Prednisone somewhere, but now I can't find it! (I'm still learning how to work the SP website-- yes, I'm a slow learner!) Anyhow, it caught my attention because I had a TERRIBLE reaction to that drug!!! AND I was only on it four days!!! I was supposed to take it for weeks, but after four days I said, "Enough!" I was never so miserable. I went into it blind-- I had never even /heard/ of his medication. After a couple days, I was like, "What's happening to me?!?" NEVER AGAIN.

Thanks so much for your comments in the calorie counting discussion...please check back and post that potato link you were talking about! I agree w/you it's the oil! I'm working hard to not let any oil into my eating plan. The vegan sour cream is G-O-N-E!

WOW. We sound like we could be twins energy wise. I also have an autoimmune disease that affects my mitochondria. It sure is tough working out.
