Pizza FAiled!

Friday, May 10, 2013

We just got home from the vet---Mayo was having a recheck following her surgery....and there was concern that she also may be diabetic...But that's another story for a different place. It was 6:15 and we were still at the vet. I thought of coming home at that hour and then beginning to cook. I'm sorry....those of you who work all day and come home at 6:00 and then have to have my complete admiration. Me? I was wiped out and the thought of cooking made me want to cry. So DH said, "Call and order a pizza." I did....and all the way home, I debated, "To eat or not to eat that is the question?"

I took the smallest piece. I ate 4 bites of it. It was the saltiest most disgusting thing I 'd eaten in a long time. So gladly, I left it. Let THEM eat that crap. Maybe I'll make myself a salad. Or maybe I'll just eat some strawberries and a hand full of nuts. (because making a salad at this hour counts as "cooking" and I'm off duty now)....Dr Fuhrman says that a rumbling, painful grumbling tummy is not hunger. It is detoxing from the poisons you typically eat. TRUE hunger is felt in the mouth and is not painful or unpleasant. And I'm finding this to be true.
When I first started eating cleanly, at about an hour or two before meals my stomach would pitch a fit. It no longer does that. Even now at 7:00 when all I've had since breakfast was a smoothie at 12:30....even now, my stomach is at peace. Food sounds good....and that is part of true hunger...but I no longer experience toxic hunger.

So once again, pizza failed the taste test. I don't think Ill be trying it again.

    Pizza hasn't failed me yet, but some processed frozen meals are so disgusting to me now... Becca

    Cynthia, I SO admire your commitment to getting healthy!! When I'm exhausted, I just can't "stay with the program." However, tonight was one of those nights and I microwaved one of those REALLY healthy dinner entrees. It tasted like pure sodium! I just have to get to the point that I don't want ANY food that's not absolutely healthy!

    Right now, I'm reading "Fasting and Eating for Health" by Dr. Fuhrman. It scares me to pieces - because he says the FDA and everyone else is telling us to eat poison!!! I believe it!

    God bless us every one!!!!!

    That is awesome news! The sooner you can eliminate the foods that you really don't need, the healthier and happier your body will come, and I can see the theory that maybe, just maybe it will start to heal itself. Load up on those antioxidants! Blueberries are a mainstay in my diet and with this new blender I can see they are more finally chopped then ever -no longer are there big pieces of skin floating around. It gives new meaning to the word smoothie -so incredibly smooth, and twice the volume, it really whips it up! It was like drinking a cloud! My fridge is now bursting at the seems with good freggies. I am also adding spices, including fresh ginger, to make tasty green smoothies -I purchased fresh organic spinach. Not sure how much of anything to use -the learning curve here will be steep. But I sure can't wait to make my first sweet potato carrot ginger soup or some variant there of!
    Here is to releasing the craving for toxins in our systems!
    Keep up the good work!
