Cleansing

I was falling back into lazy eating habits so I'm doing the 7 day brown rice diet. This is not a lose-weight or live-in-denial plan [besides, I've already lost the weight!] - it's just a way of ensuring you get back to healthier eating habits for a bit. You are supposed to eat brown rice at every meal, and you can have organic meat or tofu, and as many veggies or fruits as you want. No caffeine, no alcohol, and no sugar. No salt either, so you can't add tamari to the rice.

I of course completely ignore the no caffeine rule and if I have the urge to drink, I stick to the purity of vodka-sodas. It's working though - I'm more conscious of what I'm eating and certainly have eaten more apples and pears this week than I've had in a while. It's not that I was eating crap before, but I was beginning to have way too much bread and pasta.

There. After the amazing election of last night, I figured I needed to be absolutely mindless and tell all of you about my eating plans. That and the fact that I bought jeans today which are four inches smaller than my jeans from two years ago.

Oooooh! Congrats on the skinny jeans and for eating healthier!

It's been a while since I ate any pasta, much less I can't remember having any bread recently. I can't remember the last time I had milk either. But I've been eating potatoes for the past few months.

I am a carb-whore. I didn't really even realize it until the hub went on Atkins. I'm not changing though. I'd die without my sprouted grain bread and my potatoes.

wouldn't that much rice, ummm, block a person up?

Eros: I didn't last the full week. I had red wine and two pumpkin muffins last night! Still, I feel good. The potatoes are fine - everything in moderation!

Rox: That's why I like the fact that I at least get to eat brown rice. It's just a way of refocussing my eating.

Dan: Ah, that's what happened! No worries though, all those apples I was eating kicked in.
