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.
