Breaking fast

I have never been a breakfast eater.
I have a cup of coffee and a glass of water when I get up.
I have read how breakfast is the most important meal of the day.
When the kids were little I fixed their breakfast.
I send zucchini muffins with my husband each morning.
Fixing breakfast for myself has always been difficult.
I have tried all sorts of different foods; cereal, toast and eggs.
I just have never taken to breakfast.

For my prep program I am to eat a cooked apple or pear each morning.
I can cook it in the micro-wave for 45 seconds and sprinkle it with cinnamon.

I have taken to it!
I look forward to my breakfast.
It is tasty and so easy.

Normally I light my candle for my husband or my children.
I send blessings and my love.
This morning I lit my candle for me.
I am grateful I am learning how to take care of my body.

Hi Sherry.....
It is so strange a lot of the foods you mention I have been eating for such a long time. Quinoa is something I eat a lot of as it is a complete protein with all the amino acids we need.

The pears look delicious with their sprinkling of spice.

You will start to feel so much better on this diet......I am so going to love your journey.

Have fun

Another peek! You are going to spoil me. I'm going to want more and more and more. -smile-

Is there any place where we could be pointed, to find the sort of eating plan you are trying to follow? My constant challenge... a really healthy eating plan. And... sadly... finding the will to follow it.

Dear Cheryl,
You may already be doing many of the balancing ways. I am just learning. I had never heard of Quinoa or Cucscus. We have enjoyed them. Since my husband and I are vegetarians I am excited to find a complete protein grain.
I already feel less sluggish.
I have more energy too.
The prep program is different from an every day diet. But I will be adding these two grains into my menue planning.
I am excited once again to cook. I had grown very weary of it!
So far I am taking to this way and enjoying it.

Dear Mari-Nanci,
Maybe you could get a book from the library about the Ayruvedic Traditons. The one I have is very good about discribing how to do a spring detox at home.
I am going to the spa to have a full experience. I have done some detoxing in the past. There is a detox tea that I found last year at the grocery store that I liked. If you just want to get started on eating healthy I would suggest eat as organic as possible. Just getting away from the chemicals will help you feel better. If you can only do some organic foods choose organic fruits. Fruit is so heavily sprayed and treated that I think it is one of the 1st foods to make sure you eat organic.
