garden fresh


i had to share this beautiful display of garden fresh goodness

and the gorgeous meal mr d. & i created…


it’s sort of a deconstructed eggplant parmesan ~ minus meat, dairy AND oil.

the mister and i have been on a plant~based diet for 2½ months and going {plant} strong!

we were inspired by forks over knives, prevent and reverse heart disease & engine 2 diet


i don’t need to go on & on about how great we are feeling,

& how much weight we are losing…

i like to do a food post from time to time so from now on they will be plant based.

i just wanted to show you what you can do with all veg!
