Living a plant based lifestyle when you are in the middle of nowhere can be challenging – but usually only as challenging as you want to make it. I’ve discovered that it really can be quite easy. I was please when I came across the Plant Based Pharmacist and his post on plant strong eating in small town America featuring videos with Jeff Novick. Together, the two of them show you how easy it can be. Of course, a lot of it has to do with your attitude and your commitment to your health. When you learn self hypnosis for weight loss and use it, eating healthy can be easy, quick and taste really, really good!
How to Adopt a Plant-Based Lifestyle
Even in the Middle of Nowhere
June 18, 2014: Adopting a healthy lifestyle can seem nearly impossible for many, especially when it comes to eating habits: I don’t have time; It’s too hard to find anything healthy; It’s too expensive.
These are just some of the excuses we throw out at some point when trying to convince ourselves that this new lifestyle is just not doable. All of these reasons can have some validity too, but only if you let them.
Golva, ND: Population 60
Here are a few basic items we found:
- Quick-cook oats (with no additives or sugar)
- Canned beans (several varieties containing added salt)
- Dried beans (several varieties)
- Parboiled brown rice
- Frozen mixed vegetables (several varieties without any added salt or butter)
- 100% whole wheat pasta
- Canned tomato sauce and diced tomatoes (contained added salt)
- Small produce section (variety of fresh fruits and vegetables delivered once a week)
NOTE: Like me, the Plant Based Pharmacist loves Jeff Novick’s Fast Food DVD series because you can literally find whatever you need to make quick, easy, and healthy meals anywhere you are. Even in Golva, ND!

Even in the Middle of Nowhere
When you are in a restaurant, think outside the box. From my perspective, I’m hiring the restaurant to prepare my meal, my way. So, just because I may not see what I want on the menu, I can almost always easily get it. (And I tip well!)
For instance, in Quilcene, Washington, we stopped at a little hole-in-thewall restaurants for lunch. I wasn’t sure what I was getting into, but we were hungry and needed to eat. The establishment served breakfast all day. I spotted Vegetable Hash on the menu. It was served with 2 eggs and smothered in cheese. I thought, “this will work.” When the waitress came for our order, I ordered the Vegetable Hash without the eggs and cheese. I could see into the kitchen and watch the cook at the grill. I could see that there was already enough oil on that griddle so I asked the waitress to ask the cook to please cook my veggies and potatoes “dry”. “No problem,” she replied. I then asked her for a side of salsa.
When my meal came it was a huge colorful platter of hash browns and vegetables that looked and smelled great. Every head in the restaurant turned to see what I had ordered. One man who was about to order asked where that was on the menu. For less than eight bucks I got two very delicious meals. So, think outside the box when you are ordering!
