Low Carb for Vegetarians

fruitbasketoutdoorsWith all the information coming out today on what a high carb, high sugar diet does to our blood sugar and overall health I have decided to give “low carb” eating a fair shot. The problem for me is that I am a vegetarian and most low carb eating plans evolve around meat. When we think “protein” we usually think “meat” and when one doesn’t eat meat the most common question is “how do you get your protein?”

Getting enough protein has never seemed to be my issue. One of the most digestible proteins on the planet, which is a big part of my diet, is hemp seeds. Hemp seeds are a complete protein packing around 5.3 grams per tablespoon. I made a mason jar of hemp milk ever day using about a half cup of hemp seeds which gives me about 42 grams of protein a day. Add my daily half cup of non sweetened full fat yogurt from grass fed cows and that is another 4 grams of protein. Top it with a small handful of raw almonds and there is another 3-5 grams of protein. I also make almond milk from scratch which packs a lot of protein and I eat a few eggs every now and then which contain around 6 grams of protein per egg. But if you are a vegetarian who doesn’t want to eat eggs or dairy, stick to the nuts and seeds.

yogaposebywaterMost vegetarians eat a lot of grains and starchy vegetables in lieu of eating meat. Rice and beans is a common meal for a complete protein but also a high carb meal. Oatmeal is a common breakfast food for vegetarians and non vegetarians alike, along with other breakfast cereals, all high in carbs and sugars. When we go “low carb” we cut out grains and gluten’s. We also cut out starchy vegetables like potatoes and a lot of sweet fruits like melons, banana’s and dates. Instead we eat low carb fruits like berries and focus on low carb vegetables, nuts and seeds.

If you are a meat eater, no problem. Meat and veggies, along with adequate fats is what the low carb diet is focused on. If you are a vegan, it is more challenging; especially if you get the brunt of your calories through grains and starchy vegetables. Some low carb eating plans include beans and some grains but I am cutting out all high carb foods during the transition phase to see how it goes. Veggie soups, salads, berry and green smoothies, nuts, seeds, and high quality dairy will meet your nutritional needs adequately and give you plenty of variety. If you eat eggs you can make a great veggie omelet or frittata. In my raw food days I learned some great recipes for flax seed crackers and kale chips that are a very nice addition to the vegetarian healthy low carb diet.

So far I have really enjoyed transitioning into the low carb, high fat diet. I love sauteing my veggies in butter or adding butter to my soups. I’ve even been adding a tablespoon of coconut oil to my morning coffee. I normally only have coffee on the weekends but really love the coconut coffee blended in my blendtech. It is the best latte’ you could have. You can also put coconut oil in your tea. Soon I will experiment making chocolate with coconut oil and xylitol, which is a zero carb sweetener proven not to raise blood sugar levels. Another way to get healthy fats into our diet.

I admit I am not feeling very energetic right now but this is likely due to the withdrawal from sugars and the transition between being a sugar burner to a fat burner. When you burn fat instead of sugar, guess what? You lose fat off your body, you lose weight and your blood sugar levels stay consistent as they should. It is definitely worth trying if you are feeling out of balance, emotionally unstable, eating too much junk food and sugar, have some sort of autoimmune disease or other type of illness. Even cancer feeds on sugars. So lets get the sugar out and see what happens!

A Blast from the Past

DSCF5210Four years ago the man I loved disappeared from my life and I was left in the darkness to deal with the pain and grief of losing another marriage. I had such high hopes and dreams and once again they were shattered and so was I. I traveled through a “dark night of the soul” in search for what was missing in my life….”ME!”

Four years later I have found those missing parts of myself. I rebuilt my life, created a beautiful home, a thriving business, great health, a close network of dear friends and a music room where we meet and create the most powerful healing sounds. Where it once felt life frowned on me it now feels that life smiles upon me.

DSCF5192Four years later the man I left behind resurfaced in my life and attacked my character. Where my friends and readers now tell me I am a beacon of light he told me I was darkness. Where my friends tell me “I love you” he tells me “you are not worth loving.” Where my friends tell me “you possess such radiant beauty” he tells me “you are ugly.” Where my friends tell me “you are a woman of great integrity” he tells me “you have no integrity.” Where my friends tell me I have such a big and loving heart, he tells me “you are heartless!” He didn’t use those words but this was the message contained in his words.

It was in his reappearance in my life I realized what it was I had to overcome. Four years ago I believed those things about myself and I attracted people into my life who would mirror to me the beliefs I held in my shadow. I felt I was never enough! I couldn’t be enough or do enough. I was not good enough or loving enough. In his eyes I saw, not my beauty, but my ugliness.

I have learned to surround myself with people who really SEE me! People who know me, value me and love me for who I am and who I am is always enough!

kaleahbirthdayMy life is now “drama free” because I realize that the drama in my life was not coming from me but from those who needed to cast their inner demons upon me. I have purged my own inner demons to the point where now I CAN SEE ME!

PEACE is truly a product of our own hearts and souls. When we can come to a place of peace with who we are, we become a peaceful, loving individual. When we buy into the negative and dark projections of others we take their demons upon our shoulders and carry the burden of those demons.

To shake those demons I learned to say “you don’t know me! You never knew me! This is not who I am! It is who you are! I release you to your own experience of life! I will not carry the burden of your demons anymore!

I believe the attacking email out of “nowhere” was a great representation of “a BLAST from the past!” The past blasted into my life to ask this one question. “What have you learned?”

I have learned that I no longer need to surround myself with people who don’t see me, hear me or value me. I no longer need to believe those cruel things people say about me out of their own insecurity and unresolved pain. Those people are no longer welcome in my life. I have a choice and my life reflects my choices.

I choose LOVE! I choose JOY! I choose PEACE!

May you be blessed!

It is not only about the lessons of my own experiences going through the “dark night” but my experiences guiding others through the dark night. Go here to learn more about this book!
