After forty eight hours of behaving myself with food I am pain free and full of energy. I’m a sceptic but this is the fourth time I’ve started this diet or one similar and the pain has vanished. This time I’m more hopeful and determined.
In fact I am so determined that I took my children to Subway for lunch and I drank a bottle of water whilst they ate. When it comes to a Subway meatball and cheese sandwich I have no willpower but today I watched my son eat one and didn’t even feel tempted.
For breakfast I’ve been making a smoothie of blueberries, bananas, rolled oats, pea protein and almond butter.
For lunch I’ve had vegetable soup. I’ve made sure it’s had butternut squash in every day but I’ve included other veggies from the vegetable box. Butternut squash and broad bean with a dash of liquid smoke was particularly yummy – it tasted like pea and ham.
Dinners have been Tofu steak, rice, cauliflower and mushroom sauce. Tonight I made another tofu steak with new potato crisps (homemade) and a salad (courgette, carrot, cabbage and white wine vinegar). Tomorrow I’m attempting a vegan, gluten free lasagne.
Today I got up without any struggle at 8am. I took the children to see Finding Dory at the cinema and came home and cooked dinner. Usually I’m thinking lets order pizza after a full day out. My daughter had hers in her room (first day out after having her cast off and she was knackered) and I managed to run up and down stairs three or four times.
My son’s bedtime was a treat rather than a chore I dread because I’m so sore by the evening.
I’ve managed to clean the fridge out but as yet haven’t started the kefir and the sauerkraut. I’m hoping to do so over the next couple of days.
