I had to keep myself busy this morning to take my mind off food! I had to fast for an ultrasound appointment (just some stomach troubles getting checked out) and it wasn’t until 11:oo a.m. !Funny, when I’m told I can’t eat, all I want to do IS eat! Finally, the time came and I raced to get to the appointment. It was over pretty quickly and I daydreamed about lunch the whole way home! Sheesh! Obviously, one of those “detox” fasts are not in my future!
Lunch had to be quick to appease my growling stomach. I decided on a wrap made with turkey, a Laughing Cow Light cheese wedge, spinach and Trader Joe’s Roasted Pepper and Artichoke Tapenade. It was all rolled up in a Joseph’s Lavash Bread and served with a ginormous pear and some Kettle Baked Potato Chips…
This was one of my best wraps, yet! I loved all the flavors. I noticed that food tastes extra good when you’re starving! But, I made a conscious effort to put on the brakes and eat nice and slow:)
The afternoon flew by with errands and the remainder of the evening was spent at little daughter’s religion class – this time big daughter and I both got wrangled to help out!
I wasn’t into a big dinner when we got home, so I heated up some Trader Joe’s Organic Lentil Soup along with some cornbread I had in the freezer. I took 55 pictures of this, but there is just no way to make lentil soup look pretty!
In the interest of full disclosure, I did steal a few big spoonfuls of the daughters’ mac and cheese, too! It was too good to let it slip by without a taste :)
Overall, it was a light eating day, but I ate enough filling foods to feel satisfied. I did manage to end with a little something sweet, though…
ONE GOOD THING: I took the time to enjoy all the flavors of my lunch. Sometimes, if I’m overly hungry, I wolf the food done without tasting it! This time, I savored each bite so that I would be satisfied when I was finished.
Question of the Day: Have you ever fasted for more than one day?
