First Try a Disaster


Tuesday, October 09, 2012

I've spent so much time buying equipment, books and watching videos that I spent no time thinking of what I would actually eat. So, here I am, ready to eat healthy, raw in fact, and not one idea or item in the refrigerator to help me. Despite all the knowledge and motivation I've been picking up I wasn't actually doing anything toward my next meal.

So, what's in the fridge? I see some carrots, papaya, blueberries and plain yogurt. Should be fine, I say to myself. What the heck, I've heard greens and seeds are good for you, too, so I toss in the carrot tops and the papaya seeds. I have no idea if these things are even poisonous or not.

My first whirrrr of my new Vitamix! That looks blended enough, so I take a spoon and try it. *sour face* It's terrible! ... OK, look around, maybe some Splenda will help. So I add 8 packets. whirrrr some more.... try it... It's still terrible! I think the papaya seeds are what's mainly killing any nice taste - it's very hot and peppery, too spicy.

I'll probably have a cup of it and toss the rest. I think I should actually find myself somebody's recipe and go shopping. I did get myself four recipe books, plus SparkPeople recipes, after all.

Ah, take a deep breath.... and go shopping.

    Yep, been there. Plan, plan, plan...but forget the most important part...DO. Smoothies are tough when you first start creating healthier ones, you will get it. Think of it this way, you have all the knowledge you need to start. Write down three goals that you can accomplish this week and go from there.

I do find shopping lists really help, I use my phone and have it there all the time. emoticon

  I am still laughing as I type this. I wonder how many of us do the same thing in all the other areas of our lives. Luckily, you are already making plans to fix the problem at the grocery store. Good luck.

  I have so been there. My attempts at smoothie sometimes taste even more healthy than they are.
