I realized the other day while makeing dinner for my luvy's that i know the food i was making for them is good, but some what disgusted by it LOL it was ok for them to eat it, but I wanted nothing to do with it. I dont look at food the same anymore.. its either a PROTIEN, CARB or and EMPTY OK food lol. I like that. I feel like I have set my self free from the emotional hold food had on me! Which is great for me, since i have battled with eating disorders for years. I feel free, thanks IP!
Good for you kid! You will find that your tastes change as time goes on. I tried new vegetables I never dreamed of eating before, new dishes, new spices. It kept things interesting and creative. Now that I started Phase 4, I actually had some of that healthy pasta, a sprouted grain pasta, and it was amazing. It was chewey, filling and had taste to it, unlike white pasta that is really just a carrier for sauce. My joy of cooking has reawakened during this journey and that is almost as good as the weight loss!
Keep it up!
