My Pita Sandwich

Since I have been learning to eat in new ways I've been playing with my food a little. This is one of my favorite new sandwiches.

1 small pita bread

Mix together tomatoes, cucumber, cilantro, roasted red pepper and onions, lettuce and black beans. I added a bit of chive vinegar to the mix. Then stuff your bread and enjoy. This is a hearty sandwich and I love it.

I'll try to take a picture before I devour it next time. ;)

My Food Experiment- At the end of 4 weeks

Well, I stayed pretty faithful to the plan for much longer than I thought I would. I did probably eat meat once a week. I feel a lot better, most of my joint pain is gone except for this one spot at the base of my thumb. I lost a total of 10 pounds which doesn't seem like much but I lost inches.

I do plan to stick with it. Feeling better is a pretty good exchange for eating what I want. And to be honest the fresh foods really feel like an indulgence to me. The winter months may be a challenge without being able to run to my garden to pick what I want to eat, but I'm sure I'll figure it out.
