No matter how many healthy foods I have prepared, I still go ahead and make something unhealthy. I think I need to start treating myself like I treat my dog. I give her breakfast and dinner. It's not about flavor. It's not about what she is craving at that moment. It's simply about sustenance. Of course, I do give her the occasional treat. She loves to nibble on bits of veggies that I throw her when I am chopping up vegetables. It's a great treat for her. She loves the crunch of fresh veggies. For myself though, I'm always thinking about what do I want to eat, what would taste good right now. I think I need to stop that. I need to determine a super regimented diet for the day and just eat for nutrition and sustenance. Eat what I am supposed to eat, when I'm supposed to eat it and hopefully finally break myself of this mentality where it's all about what I feel like eating. Food is good, but the purpose is supposed to be sustaining my body and I think I've lost sight of that.
