You’ve Got Me For A Day

Let me say first that I am no lifestyle blogger; I try to live life as freely as possible given my circumstances. However, since I am embarking on a path of resilience, I figure I would at least be aware of what I am putting into my body. Without preaching or acting as if I know I damn thing about clinical research on foods, simply, I know that you are what you eat and the impact of certain foods in bulk can not only effect your body, but your mind as well. Honestly, I believe that the impact on food has a lot to do with what is trending and the psyche but that’s just my little ol’ opinion.

My motto is, “pray over your food, you’ll be fine.”

So, I am giving an update on my small lifestyle change and how it is making me feel thus far. My spouse came up with a great idea that he was going to cut out meat one day a week from his diet, and at first I thought, “hell no, I love meat too much and I cook it with everything, have fun!” Then, I jumped on board. I figured, what is one day? I noticed that when you have been doing or eating anything for a long amount of time, your body begins to crave it. Yes, you heard it right my beautiful vegans and vegetarians, my body craves a good pork chop, drizzled with brown gravy.

I spoke briefly about adding meatless Mondays to my lifestyle change in a previous post, but I never went into detail. Nonetheless, I have been going a solid month (okay, I failed one time, big deal…dusted myself off and tried the next Monday and it was because I completely forgot that I was doing it!) and truth be told, I do not feel that much different within my body, but I do feel like I like I am allowing my body to cleanse.

Taking away meat, organic or not, has allowed my body to cleanse in taking in vegetables, fruits, and water for a complete 24-hours. As I am  so use to eating a protein with every meal, this means I only eat a small fraction of vegetables. Taking a major protein away and replacing it with a green diet has proved to do my body good. The next day though, boy, I am starving! I understand what my doctor was saying when she stated that, “removing protein really takes a toll on your diet because you kind of get snack happy as a result of never feeling full enough.”

Any who, I am happy that I challenged myself to take away something that I love eating in order to live a healthier lifestyle. Now, do not get me wrong, I sprinkle my veggies, fruits, and jam pack myself with water (its the lush rule) daily, but dedicating an entire day to clean eating will make some impact as I age. I know what you are thinking, seriously? ONE day? Yes, one day, that is all I have but you have to start somewhere right?
