So, I just had to make a shameless plug for my Wishlist. I know I did it. and Im proud. Well, maybe not, but whatever.

Meanwhile, I received the best cookbook EVER at Christmas (Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Weeks!!) Perfect for my busy schedule :)

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/076790690X/qid=1105639345/sr=2-1/ref=pd_ka_b_2_1/103-2659232-6643827

Today Im enjoying the spinach-mushroom wrap with cheddar cheese on a whole-grain spinach tortilla. It's all healthy and delicious. Speaking of which...since Christmas, I've been concentrating on eating whole foods and always enjoying some fruit or vegis with every meal. Yesterday night, I forgot my burrito in the work fridge..so I went to a corner deli and ordered the "Vegi Sandwich" : Fresh Mozzarella and Avocado with onion, lettuce, tomato and mayo on roll. Cheese and Avocado: yum. Mayo, white onion, pink-ish/ orange tomato and iceberg lettuce, ugha. Not to mention the refined white flour roll. Wow. I can't believe how much my tastes have changed in just a few weeks! I still love chocolate and muffins and things..and im sure not on any diet. Im just trying to avoid trans fats and overly processed foods with extra sugars and salt. (For instance, I gave up Skippy for some brand of natural peanut butter. Interestingly enough, the natural PB cost only as much as the Skippy! I was very surprised at not having to pay more.)

Ive also tried to drink more water and make one huge mug of tea from 1 tea bag instead of 2-3 cups of tea from 203 teabags over the course of the morning.

Fresh groceries and eating out cost about the same in NYC, and it's only recently that I've been able to afford to eat "well" (by my standards). Unfortunate.

Anyway, I have to type up notes from Clinical Strategies.

Mayo on a "vegi sandwich"? That's slightly surprising, given that mayo is made out of egg whites. Though, most vegetarians I've talked to don't have a problem with mayo, at least not enough to make a fuss about it when eating out. Then again, just because it's a vegi sub doesn't nessararily mean it's a vegetarian sub. And white flour roll... ugh. I can't even eat that stuff anymore after eating wheat bread. I love wheat and rye and pumpernickel and I could care less about white flour bread.

For instance, I gave up Skippy for some brand of natural peanut butter.

Natural peanut butter is nifty... though having to refrigerate it and stir it up before every use is a bit of a drag. And the pre-stir look of it makes you go "eh... do I really want this?" but it not having all that extra gunk in it probably makes it worth it. :) Unless you're lazy and have limited refrigerator space (which is me, most of the time.)

i actually dont put my pb in the fridge. it stays pretty mixed since I eat PL on toast/ english muffin every morning. I get annoyed with the first opening/ stirring...when the level of the oil overflows over the sides.

but it's all yum in the end.
as for mayo...I dont have a problem with mayo. im not vegan. Ive never tried vegan mayo though, so If I liked it, I might switch.
