Eating Organically

A New Year, A New Me Part 3

Featured, Health and Wellness

I completed my 15-day fast, and to be quite honest, I snuck some hummus in there around day 12. Overall, I’m proud of my accomplishment because more than anything, I “get” how much control I have over my food choices and that cravings are evil tricks of the mind.

Since then I have committed to shopping and therefore eating organically. It has not been as hard as I imagined, but it demands that I organize my time well in order to cook more often. It also means more meatless meals, which is an adjustment for my family, but they are taking it all in stride.

Folks often associate an organic diet with a huge budget, and although¬† grocery store prices are marked up, I have found the best resource in my local farmer’s market. Buying it direct saves money and you will find tons of seasonal produce and other groceries, including eggs, breads and grains. For those things I can’t find at the farmer’s market, I’m leaning on Simply Wholesome,¬†Sprouts and Trader Joe’s to provide.

I’m three days shy of making this diet change a 21-day habit and I’m looking forward to what I discover about myself, my body and the healing nature of the foods I’m eating. As for my skin? It’s on its way and I believe as long as I stay consistent, I’ll see the progress I want.

    Did you notice a chance on the scale during your 15-day fast?

    Definitely. My last weigh in was on day 12 and I was down 13 lbs. When I started adding hummus and beans back into my diet I went up 2 lbs, but this week as my body adjusts, I’m down 1.5.

    Wow. I dread a life of all vegetables, but I do love salad enough that I may try that out, with a few variations.
