So, in week 4, I lost 1.7 pounds (a fair bit less than I've lost in previous weeks). This brings my total to 17.6 pounds lost. :)
A couple of weeks ago, I ordered two new cookbooks: The Happy Herbivore Cookbook and Everyday Happy Herbivore.
Lindsay's blog over at Happy Herbivore has been a huge help to me while trying to get used to this way of eating, so I couldn't help but buy both of her books!
On Monday night, I decided to try the Skillet Frijoles Negros (black beans) from Everyday Happy Herbivore for dinner.
|Sauteing onion, garlic, and ginger in vegetable broth.|
|Adding in the black beans.|

Tonight, I tried another new recipe for dinner: Warm Spinach-Artichoke Dip from Happy Healthy Long Life. It was my first time EVER using soft tofu or canned artichokes.
It turned out fairly well. I had mine on some toast (Steady Eddie bread from Silver Hills Bakery), with brussels sprouts on the side.
My mom added cheese to hers. I was jealous!
I have some other news. You may remember that I got hired as a supply teacher a few weeks ago. Well, I recently saw a posting for a full-time job as a math lab coordinator at a university and applied, just to see what might happen. Lo and behold, I have an interview this Monday! I don't think I can handle all of this excitement. ;)
And in case you somehow didn't know - Andrea has completed the Whole30!! It gives me hope that I can complete my challenge, too.
Have a good night, all!
