Dinner tonight turned out pretty well for two first-time recipes. I made a slow-braised pork shoulder in homemade chicken stock with sweet onions and fennel, and a red quinoa and brown rice salad with steamed carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, and zucchini, with a lemon-tahini dressing. Slowly figuring out this new way of eating. It was all delicious and filling.
It has been about two days since I began this regime, and I’ve noticed my body adjusting in various ways. Makes me wonder exactly how eating sugar, dairy, and flour daily has affected me. I won’t see real change for a couple weeks I’m sure, but I am so curious about the result that I’m determined to keep it up.
Snacking has actually been toughest, but I have these dehydrated veggie chips that aren’t terrible, I have almonds and cashews, and apples and bananas, and almond butter on celery sticks, etc. A friend told me today that when I feel hungry between meals, try eating a spoonful of coconut oil. Hmmmm. Might try that one tomorrow.
