"The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not."
- Mark Twain
A mighty fine and surely sincere day to you my friend! Let's make this one to remember and one which we should be proud.
Uh... um... what is Chucky to share today? How about yesterday's dining choices? After all, I bragged and boasted that I'm making a dramatic change to my food consumption.
So ~ to be frank, fair and honest with you, here 'tis:
Pre-Breakfast - 1 cup of coffee (no cream, no sugar).
Breakfast - 1 cup of coffee (no cream, no sugar). 6" breakfast sandwich consisting of: 9-grain whole wheat sub roll, egg white, sliced bell pepper, sliced onion, sliced jalapeno pepper, sliced banana pepper, sliced tomato, fresh spinach, one slice of vegetarian smoked turkey, and lots of Frank's hot sauce.
Lunch - 2 cup of Saucy Indian Veggies consisting of: cauliflower, potato, peas, tomato, and spices. 1.5 cup of vegetable soup (only vegetables) consisting of tomato, vegetable broth, hominy, cabbage, diced butternut squash, and spices. 1 fresh peach, 1 fresh apple, cherry tomatoes, cherries, pumpkin seed, and sunflower seed. 2 cups of fresh Japanese green tea (no sugar).
Dinner - Beet juice (pulp) consisting of: 1 organic beet with leaves, 1 apple and 1 carrot. Blended in Blendtec blender with water added to liquify. 1 glass almond milk (4 ounces).
Post-Dinner - Fresh cut cantaloupe, cherries, raspberries, blackberries and blueberries. No sugar, no additives. Just fresh fruit full of wonderful nutrients!
Other - Water, water and more water!
Before you go grabbing the calculator and determining the total calorie intake, let me assure you that it's much less than I would have otherwise consumed. I'm not so much counting calories now as watching what I am eating. Only fresh veggies and fruits, no added sugars, reducing caffeine intake, avoiding processed foods, eliminating dairy product, and thinking before choosing.
What do you think? Do you have an opinion? Am I doing something wrong? Do you foresee roadblocks ahead? Please, I want to know. Share your ideals, thoughts, comments, and experiences with us!
Hi-dee hi-dee it-is-forward-and-downward-(weight)-ho my friend.
