Perspectives from Elizabeth:
So I started the day off with water which I do not think I have ever done - I always try to drink 64 oz of water a day, but most of my fluid intake does not occur until noon. Breakfast this morning was kale, eggs, and toast. My first reaction when I saw the plate was this would be a perfect breakfast for a diabetic (for those of you that do not know - I am a clinical pharmacist and have a clinic site at the VA and manage the medications of diabetic patients). My second reaction was I like Kale - I had already made my mind up that I was not going to like it, but I did! Now if I could only get my patient's to not think I was crazy if I recommended it! I was actually full half way through with my plate, but I kept on eating because that is what I am used too.
Lunch was a great salad. Oh, and we made our own salad dressing and it was really good too! I was still in the habit of wanting something sweet after, but I drank my water and tried to stay busy at work.
Dinner was also good and huge - salmon, potatoes and asparagus. We are hoping that through our journey of giving something up to make us healthier (better) you can be motivated to get healthy emotionally, physically, or spiritually!
