Well in order to feel well, and get more healthy. I have to develop a plan. My main effort is to get the essentials I need to sustain, and improve my well being.
Enough of these drastic decisions. Based on anothers Spark journey, like I said in former blog, what works for one, may not work for me. I found this out 3 days into the journey.
I love life, I love food (unfortunately some of it does not like me) I love to cook, I love to go to family functions and partake of good old fashioned home cooking. And what I plan to do with those is small portions, no seconds and no desserts.
But I still am on the journey to get well. So here goes.
I will stick with clean eating, I did great with this before although I didn't eat pork, how is that clean? I mainly ate fish and chicken. I would like to just go for fish in the future. I don't want to eat chicken because of what they do to the bird while growing the poor thing. If at all I would look at free range at Trader Joes or whoever sells that.
I am still going to cut back Dairy and sugar products, actually don't want to see much of either of these in my daily intake, I may have a bit of cheese on salads, but not enough to kill me, and I really love goat cheese. I have tried to stay away from processed foods, sometimes it sneaks itself back into my menu. But not too often. I am so against anything with the word "hydrogenated" in it.
I think I might look at what one Sparker mentioned and maybe incorporate 2 meals in to the raw food genre, and make my 3 rd meal a cooked one, maybe sauteed or wokked (is that a word? Well if it wasn't it is now!) lol
I would start my day with a green smoothie, and put the basis of my greens and fruits needed for the day. My lunch will be my cooked one, and I will finish with a raw salad, with whatever is needed to get my protein or fats in for the day. I will snack on raw food and organic popcorn.
That is my plan! and of course the needed water! I don't drink anything other than herbal. I have never been a soda drinker, thank goodness!
This will work for me. I know it! I have found that clean eating is the only thing that ever helped me. When I first joined Spark in 2009 I lost 46 lbs in 6 mos. with clean eating. No program ever did that for me formerly, even WW.
So it may not be totally raw, but it will be "Clean"!!!
