I am trying to be as healthy as possible when it comes to food wise. I try to eat as much greens as possible and at times it is hard when I am fasting. I get full easily and I do not eat as much. That is why what I put in my body is very important. I have also a cholestrol level that I am not happy with and want to do something about it. I will be eating more food that is cholestrol friendly as in lowering it. I have been recommended to take raw apple cider vinegar by a friend that after some research, I went out to buy the thing. I settled for Bragg’s apple cider and cannot wait for it to arrive.
The thing I realised with my fasting is that I needed more greens. With that being said, I made a big salad for lunch today. Usually I would be hungry soon after such a mean but I was not and it was really satisfying and I did not consume any carbs with the salad. My stomach is no longer big and I am full for a longer period no matter what I eat. This was today’s lunch. All healthy things.
Not only that, I like to make my own crisp bread. For those of you into Oprah, she talked about it on her show. It is a European thing esp Skandinavia. We have tons of it in our stores but I personally perfer to make them myself as I add different nuts into it and make it even more thin and crispier than that of store bought item. I bring them to work so that if I have a hunger pang, I would have something healthy that I am able to eat on. For those of you who has no idea how crisp bread looks like, here it is.
As I am writing this, I am in bed nursing a cold that is coming my way. My throat hurts and my head feels like it will explode. I am not sure why I am sick but maybe its my body’s way of telling me that I have been neglecting myself by not meditating enough and to get enough sleep. Not that I was out partying but my body was telling me things that I was not listening to and now I am paying the price. My colds are not long drawn out like it used to be as I go in full recovery mode when I am like this. Listen to your body when it talks to you, nourish it will things that will make you strong and healthy and tell your mind that sometimes, not doing anything but playing ‘dead’ is ok.
