Yuck! I have become one of "those" people

Thursday, February 07, 2013

I went shopping this morning and filled my cart with fruits and veggies and lots of other things I used to not buy. Like: rice flour, flax meal, almond meal, egg substitute, coconut water, tofu. As I looked at my cart I thought "Yuck, I have become one of those people!" As the cashier checked me out, I found myself hoping she would notice that I am one of "those" people!

The last time I ate meat was on December 31. I did my 30 day juice fast and have been eating mostly fruits, veggies, and grains since then. With the exception of yesterday and today. Yesterday I had a minor cheese attack. I have always loved cheese and i said one piece and ended up with four okay maybe 6 pieces.
Hubby Has decided to juice the next two weekends. I did it with him last weekend and came off it, but I don't like that because I find the first 3 days to be the hardest, so I decided that I am going to go back on the juice fast through both of his weekends. Starting tomorrow I will do a 10 day fast.

Any way, knowing I was going to start fasting tomorrow. I decided to have a treat this morning. I had said that I would have meat every once in a while and this morning I decided it was my every once in awhile. I got my biscuit and excitedly took that first bite. My face went from a big smile to a grimace as I chewed and chewed. I thought to myself, I love sausage. Let me try this again. Second bite, I grimaced as I chewed. I didn't take a third bite. I threw it away. Feeling sick to my stomache the whole way home from town.

All I could think is "yuck, I am one of those people that don't eat meat! What if I never enjoy a big juicy burger again?" "I am one of those people I used to think was weird. " My grimace slowly turned to a smile as i thought , It's not so bad being weird. "What will it take to want to spit out cheese?"

    I have to agree with others that it could be the choice for the first taste. If you do end up vegetarian, no harm just take a good b12 supplement. :-)

    I bought a juicer and thought I would try a juice fast. Bought the fruits and veggies. Have used the juicer a few times, but mainly just ate the veggies. I am not quite there yet. But I do love fresh juice.
    Good job with the way sausage tastes. I bet if it were fresh sausage and not a fast food version it would have tasted better too. You know sausage made fresh just for you. Not the packaged kind at the supermarket either.
    Hope you are feeling better and good luck on that next fast!

    I am curious as to how you will react to a high quality piece of meat rather than one with so many additives. It could make a difference. Just knowing what sausage is made of, and how it is made is enough to turn my stomach. Same thing with hot dogs and bologna. A good chicken breast, or steak is another story. I love the juices/smoothies. If I have a choice between them and and different meal, I'll choose them just about every time. Don't always have a choice when we are on the road.

    Great job Terra! You have trained your body to like other stuff! I will definitely be doing more research on juicing and hopefully I can also retrain my body!
