Well guys…. I finished with my tail firmly between my legs – ooooh – ouch !!!
Having thought I’d complete the 30 day Summer challenge in style I completely flunked! I Even thought that maybe I wouldn’t add my sinful day and simply lie – just couldn’t do that. However it really gave me a HUGE insight to what I have learned over this past month.
Today my breakfast began holy-ier than thou… I drank, ate, talked ED compliant and my halo shone shone shone… then I tripped at lunch. I had to go for an appointment at lunchtime which took longer than I had expected and my gorgeous trusted husband came with me. (The devil in tow!)
It was about 3pm and I hadn’t eaten since 7.30am this morning and my stomach was a-rumblin’ and food was a-smellin’ and I had nothing as a ‘rescue bid’ when he said the dreaded words to me ……. Shall we get a bite to eat from Starbucks !!!
How could he mention such a sinful place to eat…. as a dutiful wife I followed him into THAT place and I felt obliged to eat with him. I had a coffee (mini black americano albeit) and a tuna & cheese pannini. I thought they tasted delicious – UNTIL… no more than 1 and 1/2 minutes after I had eaten the pain set in.
My stomach gurgled and bloated and I felt so farty and rotten I so wished I hadn’t indulged. The chemicals were killing my stomach and I got my due justice for not having resisted.
NEVER NEVER NEVER will I do this again. It was a real light-bulb moment showing me how all the toxins from the ‘reconstituted tuna and stuff’ so didn’t agree with me. WOW I really thought it would be an angelic moment but NO what a penance I paid.
Anyway, I think you get the gyst !!!
Breakfast: Halo, Halo, Halo – angel face I drank my gorgeous smoothie; banana, blueberries (must mix my fruit more) fresh apple juice and spinach. Rye toast with a little butter (totally not required) and hazlenut butter to top it all.
Lunch: Rubbish – total chemical intoxication of coffee (well, that part was sort of ok) and a tuna & cheese pannini (yeuch!) Not wanting to knock Starbucks – just the fact that I can’t stomach wheat or chemicals.
Dinner: A result. I was so impressed with my self that I have taken a picture whilst cooking and when the meal was fully prepared.
Cooking and smelling good. Onions, garlic, fresh ginger, lemon grass, bacon, celery, artichoke, chicken, tomato, basil leaves, proper fish sauce, proper soy sauce (ie ED friendly) served with rice noodles…. dreamy and definitely a DO AGAIN job.
Here it is in its entirety x
And so my confession is here …… I hope to keep this blog going but maybe with more additions of recipes and more help for any of you who have been living the clean eating diet with me.
Night Night for now xx
