My first photo collage.
What a pain to make!

 My food were breads, potatoes, pastas, scrambled eggs, corn, pastry, breaded and fried, doughy,  canned . . . Most of my food was beige. I gained more weight than I lost. I was always hungry or thinking about food. My stomach had all kinds of pains and noises. I needed antacids. My bowels were sluggish.

Small begrudging changes led to more changes and these led to voluntary decisions to truly change my food. This led to major weight loss, less obsession with food and positive changes in my life.

Don't get me wrong - life isn't a perfect bed of roses and it never will be. It doesn't have to be. It can just be life now because when I am out from the crutch of beige foods, I can deal with what comes at me more than I never could while chowing down on a pasta bread bowl.
I am making this for dinner this week!

If most of your food is beige there is a good chance you are not eating healthy enough or satisfying enough in your body to maintain the long term success you want. Do you want to loose 50+ pounds just for one season or do you want it to last?

Get away from the beige foods and add color to your food palate. It is a great step toward keeping the pounds off season after season.

What colors are on your plate today?

So true - in fact when I looked at the healthy picture plate of food, my eyes ignored the tomatoes and what nots and went directly for the quinoa. It is a sickness.

You are so right! The only white things that pass my lips are cauliflower, onionsaelittan XVII. and almond milk. Well, the oatmeal is kinda beige, but that's because I add flaxseed meal to it.

Sorry, that stupid thing that ensures that I'm not a robot somehow got into my comment.

oatmeal, cottage cheese and yogurt are all that occurs to me at first thought. And I am eating very little yogurt these days.
