Fasting For A New Start
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
My ovo-lacto-pescatarian eating plan is going splendidly. I am feeling hopeful, positive, and excited about my new health plan. I am fasting today. Last night we had garlic quinoa with french cut green beans and acorn squash. Oh, and cucumbers! I used the cucumber slices to scoop the quinoa, and they tasted just fabulous together! Tonight I am making whole wheat corkscrew pasta (I forget the official Italian name...) with peas and hard boiled eggs for dinner for the family. I won't be eating tonight, but I will probably set aside some of the dinner for my work lunch tomorrow. It sounds very tasty.
I am also not drinking pop. I am so done with it. After all I've been learning about global hunger, and also how the environmental choices I make here can affect things like growing seasons and weather in other parts of the world, I am going to eliminate my part in plastic bottle use by not drinking any more pop. This is actually the strongest motivator I've had to stop drinking pop permanently.
I've been drinking a lot of water this morning. Well, a lot for me. I'm on my second 20-ounce bottle, and am still feeling thirsty, which is strange. It seems like the more I'm drinking, the thirstier I feel. So, there is a very good incentive for me to keep drinking water today!
