Have you noticed that when you make a commitment to do something healthy, you end up doing even more healthy things than you originally planned?
That’s happening with me. Sticking with my fitness program has really inspired me and it made me want to eat really well. Notice I said “really” twice! I find myself thinking all the time, “How can I make this healthier.” I used to think “How can I make this taste better.” That’s quite a switch for me.
Since I got serious about fitness, I’ve been drawn to raw foods-also unusual for me. I’ve often said it’s got to be hot for me to be happy. Eating raw food is definitely more appealing to me when the weather is hot, so I’m taking advantage of this hot weather and my newfound interest in extreme eating (for me that means raw!).
Today’s menu made me really happy about eating. Friends who know me well will be saying “where’s the meat?”
Watermelon – lots of it!
Lunch (see video below)
Whole Rye Bread
1 oz leftover Chicken from Middle Eastern Restaurant
Green smoothie (rainbow chard, spinach, apple, cucumber, water) This was my first green smoothie ever and it was surprisingly satisfying. I felt very virtuous.
Raw nuts (Brazil and almond)
