Two weeks...

It's been two weeks on this diet...or life change...whatever you want to call it, and things are going well.

We've lost a combined total of 16 pounds! 

We are feeling more energetic and not feeling the cravings for junk food.  I watched a part of the documentary, Forks Over Knives, and a lot of it is about a plant-based diet, which I don't think is completely reasonable for us, we are eating more vegetables though.  Anyway, in it, they talk about junk food and why it becomes addicting.  I found that interesting and glad to know we're working on breaking that addiction.  

Now, speaking of good food...Jen and I went to this crepe place downtown.  We each got a savory and a sweet.  You order all at once and they bring your savory to the table and then the sweet a little while later.  In mine I had prosciutto, mozzarella, tomato and herb de provence, then for the sweet, bananas, strawberries and nutella.  I had never had real crepes before and I loved them.  I am excited to go again.

Okay, that crepe looks sinfully delicious. I like that movie too. I think it's pretty interesting;o) I still had my eggs and beef broth soup for breakfast and lunch though. I'm not quite a real vegetarian. I think it's informative.

YUM!!! I prefer the sweet crepes over the other. I make pretty good crepes if I do say so myself (another perk of having a parisian friend!)...come on over and we'll make some!
