whoa. This is seriously a lot harder than I ever imagined.
coffee addiction is very real.
Sugar addiction is very real.
I wanted to quit 172,800 times in the last two days. In case you didn't notice, that's once every second that I wanted to throw in the towl and make the strongest cup of coffee that I could possibly brew and pour the silky, sweet vanilla creamer through the brim, turning it the pale picture of perfection that I miss so very much.
The worst part, is that I'm able to eat the most delicious meals that I crave and desire. However, my body is physically rebelling and I feel ill. Seriously ill. I don't want to depress you with my symptoms because there was a bigger point to this. I forgot WHY I was going this. Not to feed my flesh, but to feed my soul. Not to fill my body with food, but to fill it with God.
This too, shall pass. I digress.
So, people keep asking, "Are you just eating carrot sticks and apples?"
Actually, I'm really enjoying the creative process of creating delicous meals from a small selection. And if you really wanted to be extravegant the "fruits and vegitables" catagory can be huge!
Breakfast: Breakfast burrito
Lunch: Roasted garlic spaghetti squash and zuccini
Snack: Roasted apple half with walnuts and oats
Dinner: Strawberry spinach salad with balsamic drizzle and walnuts
And of course LOTS of water with lemon.
I've started each day with a hot mug of water and a drop of Lemon essential oil to help curb my coffee cravings. It has been a life saver thus far.
What are you eating today?
peace, love, and delicous food!
