Hey Mel!

Good for you guys! We've been trying to eat healthier too. Sometimes it's hard, but we're trying!

As for a vegetarian cookbook, I really like The Vegetarian Mother's Cookbook (http://www.amazon.com/Vegetarian-Mothers-Cookbook-Pregnant-Breastfeeding/dp/0972469060). I found it at a used book store. We've liked almost everything we have tried out of it. Lots of bean recipes (also some tofu ones, but you can ignore them if you don't care for tofu...we have found we really like it!). I try to pick a couple new recipes to try out of it every time I meal plan. We're trying one called Tamale Pie this week.

Another reason I like it is because it gives some great insight into nutrtion for pregnant and nursing mothers...might come in handy for a lady like yourself! :-)

Good luck!! Change is hard, just do the best that you can, give yourself a break once in awhile (E only turns 1 once!), and try to stay the course! :-)

So we weren't Somersizing yesterday when we had pizza, cake, and ice cream? :)

It was a non-so-good-Somersizing weekend. Start over this week!
