I'm so excited for another weekend- no big plans but the Superbowl, weekend yoga, and spending time at home will be fun.
3 Week Lifestyle Update
This week marks week 3 of my new lifestyle and I'm still doing fine. I can't say I love it 100% but I seem to be craving sugary treats a lot less since I know I would have to try to make them myself or spend a ton of money on packaged treats and that kind of misses the whole point. I have screwed up food combining a couple of times with food order (see example of eats below) but I still say as long as I do it most of the time, my head won't spontaneously combust. My big milestone is February 28 and I'll probably have a big chunk of chocolate that day. A BIG chunk of chocolate. My coworkers are probably more excited about this than I am. At this point, I think I may implement this permanently and live happily ever after as long as it includes some occasional treats, just ask me again in a couple more weeks.
Not everything I have been eating is fabulous. I made amaranth and found the texture absolutely foul. It tasted like something people eat in jail, so I had to camouflage it a LOT to not throw it all out. I am guessing I did something wrong when cooking it. Here is how I ended up eating it:
Amaranth in a jar- amaranth mixed with goat milk yogurt, chia seeds, squirt of agave nectar, almond butter, and raspberries. Between the presentation, the actual food substance, and the combination, it wasn't bad, but very mediocre.
Enough whining on a Friday! Here are the things I am loving right now:
