Too much?

Ate a pear; dappled like sunlight falling through trees to warm earth; it tasted like summer.

Slow and low, that is the tempo

Slowly savored Greek yogurt was not as enjoyable as I thought it would be, though perhaps this was because I took it out of the fridge too soon, which affected the texture. The pleasure factor of tinned sardines was raised when mixed with shredded cabbage and balsamic vinegar.

I’m looking forward to goingout for Thai tonight, as I have prepared properly misleading questions that I think give me the best chance of a straight answer to “is there sugar in that?” I intend to get soup, but have several salad options lined up if that doesn’t work out.

Dessert…more OCE

After dinner, I felt like I could use some extra coconut oil, protein, and antioxidants. I can’t tell if I really needed them, or if I am just mentally sabotaging weight loss. But! We shall see all when I weigh in tomorrow whether it was a mistake or if I really needed the nourishment.

It tasted really good though.

1 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp cocoa powder
1 tbsp Show Me the Whey! protein powder in chocolate
1 tbsp frozen blueberries
1 tbsp frozen raspberries

All nuked for about 30 seconds and sort of mashed up with a fork to a pudding-like consistency, then eaten very, very slowly with the smallest spoon you have. Savoring is a calming, focused meditation on flavor and texture, and helps you enjoy food to your fullest capacity. BONUS: you feel in control; it is the OPPOSITE of bingeing.
