It’s one of those days when, before I can even get up from bed, I am already feeling hungry. It doesn’t help that I can smell the coffee brewing automatically in the kitchen. I think to myself, only a big hearty breakfast can satisfy me now. But I have to push through and let my will take over. Before I became plant-based, going to our local breakfast restaurant will really hit the spot. An order of pancakes, bacon, and eggs, or maybe something from the “Scramblers,” “Omelettes,” or “Skillets” menu would really satisfy me --- so much that as soon as I get back home, I would lay on the couch as old movie re-runs lull me back to sleep until well past lunch time. While I do still think about those gastronomic indulgences, I have now come to the point where I can stay away from them as much as I possibly can. Today is such a day when my will won over those deliciously haunting breakfast plates. Yay!
So today’s breakfast is a Fruit Oatmeal, and two slices of Papaya. And of course, coffee. Let’s try to eat healthy, one day at a time. Have a wonderful weekend everyone! 😊 -GG-

Hello everyone, this blog is alive by way of YouTube. I have now adopted a plant-based eating lifestyle and have decided to Vlog about it instead. The old recipes here will stay, but will now continue most of it on YouTube.
The channel is about joining me on my journey as I transition to a plant-based diet. I started on this diet in the spring of 2018, and have lost 15lbs. since. People who do this aggressively have lost more weight in a shorter period of time, but I on the other hand decided to transition slowly.
A transition diet for me is not quitting cold turkey. It means slowly cutting back on the regular diet we used to eat such as processed food, meat, sugar, oil, and salt, until we don’t crave them anymore. Believe me, I still have cravings for the food I used to eat. But proudly, for the most part, I choose not to give in.
On The Red Gingham channel, I will tell you how I used to make it, and show you my plant-based twist to it.
I am such a newbie with YouTube and video editing in general, so bear with me. I hope to see you there by searching us under the same name or by simply clicking here -GG-
