Go with the Flow
Yesterday didn't go as anticipated. I made a fabulous superfood smoothie. Used half a white coconut with blueberries and strawberries, then added every superfood in the house. The blueberrries changed it to a beautiful color, and it tasted great. It took away all my cravings for the entire day!
Think it was more than just the superfood smoothie that changed my plans for the day. I got very agitated over several things that happened throughout the afternoon and evening. Won't bother with details, it's just life. It occurred to me that my perception may be colored by another round of detox. Went for a walk about 5:00 to correct course, the heat only made it worse.
Around 7:00 I added fresh herbs to a bit of zuchinni hummus and ate that on 3 raw crackers. I had walnuts soaking for tacos, so I half heartedly made the salsa and walnut meat, washed the cabbage leaves, chopped romaine. When all was prepared I laid it out on the table. It looked beautiful, but I didn't want it. Put it all way.
After putting away the untouched meal I did a short inventory of what was going on with me. Figured out what might help. Filled the blender full of watermelon, blueberries, and frozen strawberries. It was exactly what I needed.
Not going to make any plans for today's menu. Going to make a superfood smoothie for brunch, then I'll just let the day flow and follow my instincts.
It is much cooler today, and I'm feeling peaceful. Writing about it helps. Reading your blogs and comments helps, too. It's a great way to start (or end) the day. Thanks so much.
Postscript: Opened the fridge to get smoothie started. The smell of the cilantro in the salsa hit me. Made a big taco with extra chili powder on top and ate it standing over the sink. Followed with 3 dried turkish figs. Now I'm going to get on my walking shoes and get going before the sun burns off the clouds and it heats up again. Maybe I'll have that smoothie for dinner....emphasis on maybe.
