Having lunch at Pita Pit in Oxford where they have plenty of vegan options. I had the spicy black bean pita with roasted red pepper hummus and loaded with veggies and a splash of mango sauce. So good!! #whatveganseat #oxford #mississippi #health #plantstrong (at The Pita Pit Oxford)

Visited with Mom and Dad today, and @DutchLady40 sent me home with fresh tomatoes, peppers and cucumber. I added some red onion and fresh mint with some red wine vinegar, and tonight’s salad is done! BOOM!! #whatveganseat #fresh #food #health #garden #nutritarian

We’re well into our 28-Day Reboot, and I’ve learned something interesting.  Evidently, we had not strayed as far away from the basics of Nutritarian eating as I thought we had, at least if our weight is any indication.

As I’ve said before, we were already pretty much at our desired weights, but had noticed a couple of pounds had crept back over the past four to five months.

After only a couple days of this this reboot I dropped two pounds, but then my weight just stabilized there.  I weigh every morning, and the weight just goes up or down by .2 or .4 pounds each day, hovering right around 127 (I’m a 55 year-old female, 5’4”).

So even though we’ve cut out salt entirely for this reboot, when I thought about it I realized that I had not actually let that much salt creep back in to our diets over the past few months.  Same with fats or sugar.  Sure, we’ve splurged a few times—my nephew’s wedding, a vegan pizza or two, an occasional beer or wine, black bean burgers—but all in all, we’ve remained pretty faithful to our G-BOMBS!

We’ll continue on with this reboot to see where it takes us, but at this point I’m feeling much better about the new habits we’ve formed since we first became Nutritarians a year ago.  The lessons we learned from the original Six-Week Challenge have stuck with us, and will serve us well for a healthy, happy life!
