The Abi Diet – Phase I

And Phase I = bananas.  Well, maybe they are further down the list of “phases” as they took some serious determination and willpower to overcome!

The ‘Abi Diet’ is this – simply trying to eat as our dear Abi does.  You laugh.  I am serious.  The girl eats well.  And has a very healthy and happy life!!  And tuned into reality as she is – the girl does enjoy a good glass of chocolate milk and a sweetie every once in a while.  But for the most part – she is a fruit and veggies type of girl.  Not a strict vegetarian, but definitely those tendencies!  My food journey is still evolving as we speak – but there is something about bringing a little soul into the world that really makes you evaluate lots of your practices.  The way we eat has been one of those processes that we are/have been/will be evaluating.  Will keep you updated with our little journey towards semi-vegetarianism!

My victory as of today – eating bananas.  I DO NOT like bananas.  Or so I thought.  But, today for lunch I ate 1/2 of abi’s banana because she only wanted half – and I knew it wouldn’t last until donald got home (which means tomorrow morning for him actually eating it!).  But, I couldn’t bare to throw it away…sooooo, I enhaled – told myself to “suck it up” and bit down.  And really?  It wasn’t that bad!  I’d give it a 5 out of 10.  I’m strangely (and quite ridiculously) proud of myself!!


(a feel-good/responsible general FYI – Whole Foods is the only place that I know of where you can get responsibly grown and fair-trade certified bananas.  Now you know!)

Good job Angela!! I've also been convicted about things I eat now that Hannah is eating table food. I feel like if I wouldn't give it to her, why am I eating it!?! (And good tip about the bananas at Whole foods).
