Well, I made it through Day One a little out-of-sorts. Day two was better, mostly due to better energy, and greater ability to concentrate on tasks. Today I also had the idea I might be able to live without sugar after all. I looked forward to my baked potato with hemp oil and one chopped green onion and was surprised to find it was actually sweet! When we get rid of the processed sugars and sugar substitutes the sweetness of natural foods comes through. A pleasant surprise.
Breakfast: Green Smoothie: juice of 1 lemon, water, spinach, organic protein powder, sprouted ground flax & broccoli seed.
Lunch: Baked potato with skin, hemp oil, one green onion on top. Tasted sweet! Most enjoyable meal of the day.
Green smoothie, same as this morning but replaced the spinach with green leaf lettuce, organic. Only drank half and saved the rest for tomorrow morning.
Afternoon snack: None today
Dinner: Vegetable Soup: chopped celery, tomatoes, yellow onions, parsley, leek, garlic, potatoes, all organic. Spike: salt-free seasoning for flavor, covered with water and simmered for 1 hour. made a batch but only ate a cup.
Tomato-Cucumber Salad: Same as yesterday, had a cup ready for tonight’s dinner, marinated in the spices and the apple cider vinegar for 24 hours. Sometimes things taste better when the flavors have had a chance to meld.
Result: I was very hungry before dinnertime so I ate a half-hour early. My veggie soup and tomato-cucumber salad took care of it, though. If I felt a twinge in the evening hours I just had water with a quarter lime.
