It’s been a year and a half since my cancer diagnosis. I just finished my latest tests and so far, the numbers are coming back strong. Liver number? It’s good. Tumor markers? Nice and low. Food issues due to losing over half my colon? They’re not as horrid lately. (Yay!)
So, I’m cautiously resuming this little space on the Internet.
Thing is, I LOVE my Plant Based Life. Everything about it is awesome.
I love experimenting with recipes. I adore creating something so heart healthy, it easily fits within the American Heart Association’s guidelines… no cheating required.
For example, lately, I’ve been playing with seitan. Last night, I created an INCREDIBLE, huge pepperoni pizza that more than met those all important guidelines. It was really a fun ride. I ate two slices.
Best part? This morning, I stepped on the scale and was down another pound.
Yup, through the whole cancer thing, I gained around 25 pounds. Oh. Make that 19 as of this morning. I like not fretting about dieting. I just eat tasty food and let nature take care of the rest.
So, that’s how I feel today. I plan on posting here regularly. After a cancer diagnosis, I realized I need to focus on projects I love… like plant based living. I’ll talk more about that later.
Take care. — Beth 🙂
