"Day 1: not over yet! I went shopping for some of the list at Choices, and was surprised that prices on some things were actually quite reasonable. For lunch I had a veggie sandwich, (Buckwheat bread w/no gluten and organic stuff in it) with organic lettuce, tomatoes and almond butter. Surprisingly good!
For a snack I had organic blueberries. Off to rehearse now, and when I get back, I will be making a tasty pasta sauce with garlic, rosemary, a medley of carrots and a pseudo "cream" sauce with no animal products/dairy or anything in it. I know it's not following directions per se, but tomorrow will be less hectic for me. So far so good."
One day later Ted sends me a message on Facebook with : "Holy wow do I ever feel good. Not kidding!" Yup, it's that simple when we eat whole foods we feel really good. They way we are meant to live life, we all deserve it! Welcome to life!
"I made some pasta this evening. I, of course, cheated a little and didn't put the right stuff in it as per the recipe but at least it was delicious, and I am still continuing with the plan as much as humanly possible!
So, for this dish I made a tomato garlic basil sauce, reduced a bit just so it would thicken. I added a medley of whole, raw carrots to the organic, gluten free pasta, and added a bit of cracked black pepper to taste. For dessert, I ate a pomegranate. I must say, for 8.99 at the Liq, the Marcus James Malbec from Argentina made a good pairing. Pic attached.
As my life is a bit hectic at the moment, I do find preparing food in a short time a challenge, especially just for myself, as I am just out of a long term relationship. I do want to continue with this type of plan for as far as I can see. My body feels great, and my mind is clear and it really does feel great to just be eating things that are actually good for you and that aren't crap."
