After a few years of declining (and fit & start) food choices, I know this is going to be a challenge to get past my comfort foods and back to foods that make my body feel great.
While I'm not doing a 'raw' for two weeks, I am trying to make choices of foods that fit a few categories:
No added sugar
No flour or grain
No dairy, eggs or meat
More green foods - cooked and fresh
To be frank, it's been a little tough today. I was thinking fondly of a bagel, or slice of toast. I had to leave the room when Larry-Boy was swimming in chocolate. My blueberries with coconut milk and pecans was good, but I found myself wishing I could sprinkle some sugar on it.
I tried to talk myself into millet for dinner, but again, the goal is to give my body a REST from lots of digesting.
I find myself wanting, out of boredom, to eat. Especially something crunchy.
Protein is my biggest challenge. I need, and have always needed, lots of it. Fish and beans are my main stay for the next 13 days, and frankly, I'm looking at my husband's pork chop and drooling a little.
But it's only for 13 more days. And did that food make me feel good? No. Did those foods I'm craving fill an emotional hole? Not really. Did those foods give me energy? No.
Today I am feeling MUCH less tired than I have been in a long time. Feels good.
