I’ve noticed that my food has so much more flavor! No a little more flavor, a TON more! Like, make your lips pucker pineapple! I’ve come to the conclusion that the pineapple.. it’s the fact that I am no longer fooling my taste buds with artificial this and processed that. They can now appreciate the flavors of god’s creations. I was surprise that my buds could change so quickly. Our bodies are so amazing! Now I can enjoy the flavors and qualities of food the way that they were intended. My buds are no longer tainted with the unnatural sodium and faux flavors that made up the foods that I once consumed.
Well the journey continues. Today is day 11 and I have to say, this is much easier than I anticipated. I never would have have thought that I could go this long without all of the dairy goodness that is cheese, sour cream and most of all, chocolate!
Here are a few of my staples:
peanut butter (especially when I want something sweet!)
soy milk (in place of cream in my coffee)
avocado- when I put this on top of my vegan Mexican casserole, I don’t even miss the cheese!
So far, I have noticed that when I get hungry, it’s much less dramatic. I simply listen to my body’s request for fuel, fuel up and move on. My skin is becoming clear and bright.. an esthetician told me a while ago that breaking out on the lower part of your face and around your chin was most often related to a food allergy. I’m not a doctor or an esthetician but hey, if it works great! Best of all, I have more energy and am dropping weight and I don’t even feel like I’m depriving myself. Instead of a diet, I’ve made life changes. I’m making more healthful choices in my eating habits and food choices.
