Thought I would do a post about some of the specific foods that have kept me on track. Without these foods, my food journal would look a little less healthy.
I think I have gone through five large potato sacks of grapefruit in the last two months. It would probably be more if they weren’t so time consuming to slice up. I do a fine sprinkling of sugar, to the point where it is still healthy.
McCann’s Steel Cut Oats
Alone, they have a really nutty, richly creamy taste and texture. But after I add butter and brown sugar, what is a beautiful blank canvas transforms into pure magic. The only downside is the time it takes to cook, about 45 minutes all in all. I have not tried the five-minute kind this brand makes because it is pretty hard to mess with near perfection.
About 11 years ago I began working at this really great orthobionomy/Reiki/yoga/health center, and I learned a lot. A tip my boss shared with me was slicing little bits of ginger root up with a slice of lemon and adding that to my water. I ate healthy and was well hydrated that whole summer. I learned so much while there, but other than the free lentil meals they fed me every day at lunch and the 10 pounds I shed, this was another reason I loved working there. These days I am too lazy to throw in the lemon. Sometimes I chop up a bunch of ginger root and throw it in a strainer and drink it in hot tea form. Once in a while with honey. Loves it.
