Today, as I was preparing my lunch, I thought to myself, I’ve come a LONG way! I’m not talking about the loss of weight or inches but how I take the time to prepare my meals and my family’s meals. I enjoy it and have learned a lot. I used to be a “fast food” type of cook, where if it was quick and easy that was my kind of dish or I would just simply order take out. My mentality has changed; I enjoy preparing healthy food and feel better about myself for doing it.
Before starting this diet, I never touched a raw radish, I now boil them in a cup of homemade chicken base… prepared like that they are now one of my favorite vegetables. When the radishes are prepared like that they taste just like baby red potatoes that came out of stew. YUM! I didn’t lose anything, but I didn’t gain and I’m not going to dwell on it.
