Tea and Friends
Finally sitting down to a warm cup of Apple Spice tea and watching a marathon of Friends!
As soon as I got home from Costco this afternoon I put in my iPod and got straight to cleaning. I didn’t take off the headset until 6pm for dinner and, because I didn’t really have a “real” meal today I couldn’t wait to create a delicious dinner. Hubby enjoyed some yummy spaghetti.
The best part of this CLEAN EATING is that I am getting really creative with different combinations. Tonight I baked up some Butternut Squash with EVOO and a little honey at 450 for 25 minutes. mmm…
I also cooked up some mushrooms and spinach to throw in as well.
I also threw in some grilled tofu I cooked up with EVOO and Oregano.
All this goodness I threw on a bed of rice noodles.
This was such a lovely dinner, but I was craving something sweet after. This past week I have really craved SWEETS and SALT!!!! I didn’t realize how much I crave these two things. Now that I am learning more about “good” sugars vs. “bad” sugars it’s really got me interested in learning all about how sugar effects the body (good and bad).
Some of you asked about the book I was reading last night at Borders, here it is, “The Raw Food Detox Diet” not sure who the Author is.
I am NOT thinking of doing a RAW diet (I do admire those who do) just very interested in it, in how food truly effects are bodies. I want to take a second and make a disclaimer about the DETOX that I am doing. I just wanted to say that I don’t believe in QUICK fix diets, and I am not considering this a WEIGHT LOSS DIET. This Detox that I am doing is to help ME feel better. I want to feel that best that I can, and I know that when I am eating poorly I feel like poo. I also know that it’s ok to eat a well balanced diet that is full of wheat and the occasional sweets too. After these 30 days I plan on sticking to mostly all CLEAN FOOD, but enjoying all FOODS as well. Ok enough said.
Oh and look what Hubby picked from the Garden today!! I have never had a yellow tomato???
Bosco is giving me the evil eye, I think he wants to play :)
I can’t wait to wake up to a CLEAN HOUSE tomorrow!!!! Sleep tight friends!
edited to add: I forgot to tell you all how much the produce was from my last post, $28, you guys are good!
