Catching up - 5/09/09

Okay, so I experimented with Phase 1 according to Gabriel Cousens. Had weird symptoms & switched to phase 1.5 for a few days. I then remembered something I had heard before about enzymes & not being able to always eat the same foods, and I wondered if my body is just tired of agave & cashews, and if maybe it doesn't have much to do with the sugars in the fruit/agave. So I licked my fingers after cleaning off the edge of thehoney jar, and I didn't have any bad reaction. The next day, I ate my yummy marinated cauliflower salad (the marinade had 1/2 cup honey in it), and no heavy feeling like I was getting with high-carb stuff before. I had lots of energy. So I'm back to "listening to my body". I'm still feeling heavy after eating agave, but I've used it a little in order to get lots of other nutritious goodies into me more easily.

I have been doing though a lot of experimenting the last several days. I had strange symptoms my third day on phase 1 - they went away when I ate grapefruit on day 4, so I decided to move to phase 1.5 and add some low-glycemic fruit, sprouted grains, etc. to my diet.

Breakfast: falafel balls

Lunch: salad (5 oz. spring mix, 1 large avocado, dill-flavored seed cheese and dressing made of avocado, water, lemon juice, salt & pepper)
1 c. blueberries (thawed) in a bowl with 1 cup almond milk

Snack: another bowl of blueberries & almond milk

Snack: 1 large avocado, sliced & sprinkled with sea salt & cayenne (I used up the Mexican seasoning)

Dinner: salad (5 oz. spring mix, 12 cherry tomatoes, 1/4 of a red bell pepper, 1 large avocado, alfalfa sprouts, olive oil, lemon juice, salt black pepper) YUM!!!
