Hey everyone! I know it’s been a while but I’m still around I promise. I have a few little side projects going on (small writing jobs, a small party favor job, blah blah) so I’ve been a bit busy. I’m kind of in a transition phase in terms of diet and after speaking with my trainer I decided to make a few changes to the plan. More on that later
First, here’s a small haul from Whole Foods this morning.
2 bunches of kale (never thought that would be the norm!), cauliflower, cucumbers, almonds, celery, avocados and zucchini.
And here’s a delicious meal I made the other day and had to share:
Extreme close up of my tofu scramble (tofu, spinach, black pepper, garlic powder and the last 1/8 cup of cheddar Daiya – I had no tofutti so I used the daiya and it was good!) and some roasted sweet potato fries. So good.
Ok, so I started training again once a week a few weeks ago. Wouldn’t you know it, my trainer has decided to start researching for me!! I thought it was so nice of him to take the time to do that. He brought me a lot of interesting information and we discussed diet changes. I had mentioned that I was planning on cutting out the sugar and he suggested that I do a 100% raw diet. No grains, no added sugars (but keep fruit)… basically fresh fruits, veggies, nuts, and seeds. I’ve decided to bring the two together and try a 100% raw diet with no grains and with limited fruit. I’m thinking about starting with just limiting to a low glycemic granny smith in my morning green juice with the option of a small piece of lower glycemic fruit for a morning snack (if necessary and only a few times a week, but I’m going to try and just stick with the apple in the juice). He said that he thinks a month of eating like this will help me control a lot of my symptoms.
I’m going to be working on transitioning into the raw diet within the next week or two. I’m still trying to get rid of some food I have in the house that I don’t want to waste and will need some time to prepare (the time and preparation is the hardest part of the raw diet) but I’m looking forward to seeing how it works! Be prepared for lots of large salads and kale, ha!
Anyway, hope you are all doing well! I lost two hours of my day today getting caught up in the Weather Channel and have some work to catch up on Have a great night!
