Vegan: Week 3!

11 10 2010

It’s hard for Mr. and Mrs. Healthful to realize that it’s only been/we’ve survived being vegan for 3 weeks.  The results are positively incredible.  We are both down about 15lbs, our skin is glowing, and we feel like rockstars. and the craziest thing is that I have almost no cravings!  my hormones have readjusted, and I feel so healthy.  so it looks like i’m vegan for good.  hard to believe!





Vegan: week 1

26 09 2010

So the elder Healthfuls, my parents, came up to visit us this weekend in Boston and they were shocked at how we look after just one week of being vegan. I’m down 6lbs, my husband is down 10lbs, and my mom said that I’m absolutely glowing. She said that my skin is just radiating, that I look younger, and that my face is thinner and I look the healthiest I’ve looked in a long, long time- and that is not due to being down 6lbs mind you- I’m still 20lbs overweight. It’s the glow. Even my knee pain is gone. My husband is shrinking so fast his shorts fell down to his ankles. Twice.

So, I can honestly say that I’m thrilled and that it’s been the easiest week for me ever. And…that i’ve found a way of life that suits me. Yay!





Risotteria!

Sorry I’ve been a little MIA lately, but it being Valentine’s Day and a long weekend after all…

hpim13701Anyway, I’ve also been too busy telling everyone I know about my trip to NYC and how we went to Risotteria, the gluten-free wonder restaurant.  I ate pizza.  I drank beer.  I ate a cupcake.  I drank more beer.  and it was all gluten-free!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was seriously in heaven.  The food was wonderful (even our GF friends couldn’t taste a difference).  The servers were terrific.  My cupcake made me not feel like a loser for not being able to eat like others. I couldn’t have asked for a better Valentine’s Day present.

If you are in NYC, you must make this a destination. Check out their website under my Resources link!  Check out their reviews on Yelp (including my own)!
