Holiday Gathering


Saturday, May 25, 2013

As my healing progresses, so do my food options. The swelling has gone down to an area that is about an inch in diameter. I'll still need to consume softer fair at the picnic on Monday. My contribution of baked beans was requested.

Seeing that anything crunchy and sharp will still be out for me, finding healthy choices will be even more challenging. So what to do...
Option 1: Eat before I go and do not eat at the picnic.
Option 2: Make mindful choices.
Option 3: Punch the extraction area.

Eating before I go... then succumbing to temptations. Not good. Option 1 is out,
Inflecting pain is not happening, so Option 3 is out too.

Option 2 it is. Sure there will be unhealthy offerings, but what I have been finding is taking a "No Thank You" helping is enough to satisfy my curiosity. Taking a half a slice, instead of a whole. Taking just a spoonful (not heaping). One or two mindful bites is more than enough. Also leaving food on my plate is not a crime.

What gets you through picnics and BBQs?

    Playing horseshoes, taking photos, talking to the seniors, and eating one charcoal cooked hot dog as my indulgence. (all those nitrates)

  I fill half my plate with veggies and fruit, stay away from potatoes, breads and pastas. I also drink water with my meals and drink grapefruit juice before my lunch and dinner to break down the ”fat” easier. I do have dessert, as everything in moderation. You already know what you should and shouldn’t eat so it won’t be too hard on you to reframe. Go and enjoy yourself! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
