Do you ever go through a phase where you just want to eat different things?
I'm a bit like that right now. Lately, I'm just not interested in meat. It's not a philosophical thing, it just doesn't look, or smell, good to me. I've been through phases like this before, but generally persisted with the meat eating in order to keep my protein up.
This time, I'm just going with it. I've come to believe that, if you pay attention, the body steers the appetite in the direction of what it needs. In the past, I had difficulty identifying a body-directed hint from an emotional foodie attachment, and so it never worked out. My emotions had an annoying habit of suggesting that my body requires a lot of chocolate, or cheesy bread, or wine. ;)
But, I think I've matured in my body/foodie journey. This time, my body wants berries and tangy stuff like yogurt and fermented veges. I'm getting most of my protein from fish and eggs, and so far, have neither chubbed out nor faded away.
The above pic represents lunch. It's blueberries and greek yogurt with Fresh-As Raspberry Powder stirred into the yogurt. Pink and Purple! How cute and girly.
The blob on the top is Active Manuka Honey ($35 a jar, yikes!).
And now, all I need to make this Sunday complete is a sunny day (check) and.. chemistry cat.
