Eating, exploring and enjoying life

When the end is just the beginning

Today is the last day of my 6-week elimination diet. I did it!! (again)

Instead of celebrating with a chocolate cake with extra whipped cream, I’m doing nothing.

Sure, tomorrow I will relax my strictness, mostly about sugar (choosing natural only) but I am not running back to my old habits.

I have new habits now and I love the way that I feel.

I have NO physical reactions to foods I consume and any body image issues I had, are gone.

My muffin top tummy is gone and I don’t feel I need to exercise like a demon daily to keep myself looking good.

I am getting together with friends on Friday night and wine will be involved.

But as far as food is concerned, I’m quite happy to stick to my fruit, veggies, proteins and grains.

There are plenty of food choices out there that were not formed in a test tube or come from a factory. Just think outside the box. Pun intended!!!!

Breakfast was hard but I’ve found a couple hot winter breakies that I LOVE.

hot breakfast

Sauteed veggies with almonds and poached freerange eggs

quinoa

Quinoa flakes with banana, fresh date and chopped nuts

I do realise that quinoa flakes are processed but going 100% fresh produce only is near impossible in the Western world. I also drink almond & rice milk from a box..tsk tsk tsk.

I’m still addicted to organic peanut butter but have cut down on my consumption. But just typing that out has made my mouth water.

Off to get a celery stick with PB now.

Here’s to great food and good health!
