Yesterday I ate:
9:00 . . . juice of 10 tangelos
12:00 . . 1 pineapple
2:00 . . . 4 bananas + 4 medjool dates
4:00 . . . nibbling off of fruit platter as I made it
6:00 . . . pineapple, tomatoes, dates, pickling cukes, peppers
9:00 . . juice of 6 tangelos + a few dates
Play: walking/running ~ 3 miles, stretching
I made another fruit platter yesterday to take to a get-together for dance people. It looked the same as the other except it also had some blueberries and raspberries on it. People especially love the dates because they are so unusual to them. Some peeps really go crazy over the dates, and deservedly so. These are moist and very sweet and taste like caramels.
I love being around dancers. They are at least lean, fit, beautiful, graceful and mostly healthy, and most are vegetarians. So there was tons of food, but most was healthy by SAD standards. There was lots of salsa and guacamole and veggie trays. Someone brought a plate of cut-up apples and pears. But I mostly grazed off of my own platter. I probably ate half of it myself! Ha!
As much as I enjoyed being social with everyone, I was reminded once again that I really prefer to eat alone. It is the only way to really focus on the food, to be totally relaxed and aware and have perfect digestion. This thing we have of being social and gabbing while eating is really a problem that most folks are not aware of. I know I ate too much and I felt less than perfect in the stomach for a short while. I like being quiet while eating. I just plain like being quiet. ♥
