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!)
