I think I've got a decent menu made so I can avoid eating lentils, soy and most grains.
some types of beans that go well with my blood type
tons of veggies.
I know by eating this type of diet I'm not really following the vegan diet of soy and all that other crap. However, it is a good starting point and I think will be much healthier than eating the crap you can eat on the traditional vegan diet. I'm mainly interested about the no meat no fish thing anyway. If this works well I'll try to introduce fish after lent and see how it goes.
If you aren't worried about having a few grains here and there, try replacing brown rice with quiona. You may be familiar with it, but it's really good for you. I toss it in all of my soups and stews. It's a great filler.
Black, Pinto, Garbanzo, Cannelli beans are all very frequent on my plate. Spinach, kale, mushrooms....lots of mushrooms for me. Lots of eggplant and cauliflower. If you like to cook (like me), it will be so fun to create new dishes you wouldn't have tried before. I get a lot of my nutrition for the day from a fresh juice in the morning. If you have a juicer, definitely look into that. It will give you a nice boost of energy in the morning. Also, you should cut all soft drinks and fast food (you know this, but just in case...) Big salads for lunch or dinner with olive oil are very refreshing. You can eat practically as much of it as you want.
