Well interesting old stuff coming up for me now.
I decided to only eat fruit and veg for 3 days coming out of the fast.
Should be no problem but because it is sunday there have been roasts and frys going on around me and I have been craving meat and fat. The fat from the chicken, bacon, sausages, the fat from the lamb and I have also wanted coffee.
I made a delicious Indian curry last night to try and give my taste buds a treat while making me feel like I was having a treat plus a real meal.
When I was vegetarian before a few times I over ate carbs, breads, pasta and rice because I found when I just eat fruit and veg I am permanently hungry.
Being a blood group O I digest meat well and I find when I eat it I never think about my next meal until the time comes. Being veggie I am kind of thinking about what I will eat next.....now I know a lot of this is in my head.
I am not hungry but it is really interesting psychology as when I was on the fast I was happy with that, there is much more lust and gluttony coming up now that I have started eating again, albeit very clean.
I am going to do this for lent, no matter what, so I need to tap on cravings and beliefs that I need or want things I should not have and coffee.
Coffee is a funny one because no one likes it when they first try it. We teach ourcellves to like it, so I need to release this and go back to what I used to believe when I was 15, I thought it was awful.
The paleo diet will work well for me so that is what I am planning to stick to for the next month, cutting out all wheat and dairy plus sugars and caffeine. I am determined to heal all aches and pains in my body and will experiment with food and releasing till it is all gone. I am feeling much, much better a bit more exercise into my routine and I will be back on full power.
I need to tell you the recipe I used, kind of half made up with the sauce on a recipe on the internet.
So easy, quick and orgasmically delicious.
4 tomatoes chopped into a pan.
a fresh chilli
12 or more almonds.
Soften them off in a pot. Cool it down a bit then put in blender. This creates a creamy delicious sauce that you then add to
1 small finely chopped onion gently fried in butter till golden and soft.
Add in the mixture and add 1/2 tsp of fenugreek, coriander, cumin, 2 cardomon pods, red chilli powder, garam masala, juice of 1 lime, tbsp of coconut oil, rock salt and pepper.
This gives you a delicious sauce to which I added roasted butternut squash, sweet potato and aubergine.
A handful or freshly chopped coriander.....OMG delicious!
You can also use paneer, more nuts, spinach, okra, beans, anything you like. Truly nutritious and delicious.
Tomorrow is monday a great day to start exercising, let me get my ass onto the Vibrogym!
