    This was a very good plant-based day. Things are looking up and am feeling stronger with each passing day.

    Well, it's certainly taken me long enough to get my ass in gear, but it finally is. Today was a good day of juice for breakfast, Curried Lentil Soup for lunch and Vegetable Biryani for supper. I was totally plant-based today and it felt great.

    I'm finally back on track after several weeks of recovering from surgery. Doing juice for breakfast, a juice-based smoothie for lunch and a plant-based supper really makes my body feel good and the water weight from too much sodium is quickly disappearing. Everything is going fine.

    Hi, I'm new here. My family's transitioning our diet, slowly but surely, everything is being replaced with fresh, raw, organic & Non-GMO foods. I've watched the fat, sick,and nearly dead with my husband and loved it!!

    I am on a juice challenge right now, but plan on going to a plant-based diet when I am finished.

    Here's a recipe for pancake lovers out there:

    Chick Pea Flour - 2 cups

    Water to make it pancake consistency

    Salt to taste

    Cumin seeds or cumin powder - 1 tea spoon

    carom seeds - 1 tea spoon

    Grated Onion (roughly grated - not fine) - 1 normal sized

    Grated ginger - if you like the flavour

    Grated garlic - if you like the flavour

    Very finely chopped spinach - 1 cup


    Finely chopped tomatoes - 1 cup


    Grated Carrot - 1 cup

    Mix all these ingredients and make pancakes with a dribble of olive oil in a non stick pan! You can mix and match other ingredients as per your taste. For example I sometimes use Fenugreek leaves instead of spinach.

    Enjoy savoury vegan pancakes!

    Add stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and cover. Simmer 20 minutes.

    Fluff with a fork and stir in peas and almonds.

    Compared to Kate and others, I feel a bit like a whiner. I only need to lose 50 lbs (and 12 inches off my waist across the belly button) to hit my target -- but on my small frame, that's considerable. I'm tired of struggling to tie my shoes (whine) and see the look of disgust on my wife's face. Moreover, I've a list of medical issues all related to the excess weight and horrible diet (high in sugar and meat). Anyway, I definitely believe in the value of whole foods. For me, that also means "organic" as much as I can. My bottom may not be dramatic... but it's my bottom. Is it okay if I join y'all?

    Hi Don - sure you can join. This isn't really a very active group, but it's someplace to touch base, if nothing else.

    Today went well. I've been careless over the past 10 days or so and my rings are tight - as are my socks. While prepping my juice today, I only had several quarts of Bengal Spice tea. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though it meant many trips to the bathroom. The trips up the stairs were endless. I'd planned on doing a 30 or 60 day juice fast beginning today, but decided against it and am opting for 2 juice meals/day and 1 meal of my trusty hearty bean soups. I'm making Curried Lentil Soup tomorrow after work and it will cover me for an entire week.

    My current goal is to lose 25 pounds, then go 10 pounds at a time from there on until I reach 190 sometime this year.

    It's nice to be back in control.

    How much weight total do you want to lose? 145 will be my overall total loss. I have 105 more pounds to go. I'm doing the 60 days but am altering as to accomplish a total of 60 days juiced. If I eat, I won't end the fast. I'll just pick up the next day and continue until I reach a total of 60 days juiced.

    I want to lose my last 80 pounds this year. I've lost 225 pounds so far. One thing about doing a juice fast is that as soon a person begins eating again, they often put much of their lost weight back on. I see you've lost 40 pounds so far. That's great. Are you eating plant-based while having juice? If you're doing a straight juice fast, I started a group just for juicing.
