Thanks to everyone who left a comment on my last post, Eating Your Feelings. With the sadness slowly subsiding to a dull ache and life back moving back into its regular rhythm, I’m finally back to eating healthy, whole plant foods again.
Rediscovering whole plant foods
Interestingly, as my taste buds are recovering from the deluge of sugary/salty/fatty (addictive!) foods, I’m finding that I missed the taste of nutritious foods: sweet fresh fruits, crunchy vegetables, creamy baked sweet potatoes, tender beans, and chewy, satisfying whole grains.
It’s good to be back.
Luckily, I’ve had the support of my mom and my husband in getting back to a health-promoting diet. Specifically, my mom and I have embarked on a 3-week health kick together (a modified version of the adventure cleanse we did last January). We’re enjoying scrumptious green smoothies and raw foods every morning til noon, then eating low-fat whole plant foods the rest of the day.
