Tonight dinner was the black bean pancakes, which I topped with avocado, tomatoes, and a bit of fresh cilantro. I served it with a modified version of a winter salad from Vegetarian Times. It involved getting familiar with a previously unknown quantity - celery root.

Also have to say as far as the effects of the dietary changes, my mood is still great and I believe I have increased focus at work. I definitely feel more in control of my day. My habits have been changing in a good way. When I come from work is my most dangerous time of day, because I am always hungry and dinner is always at least an hour or two away. I used to grab some bread and cheese, maybe pretzels or crackers. By having healthier snacks readily prepared, now I am reaching for carrots or fennel and some beet hummus. A few pistachios or roasted pumpkin seeds. This Friday (home by myself, the Husband is working late) preparing beet chips and sweet potato hummus is on the agenda to keep up the supply of healthful snacks.
