Day 18- I want chicken
Today was a tough day from a food standpoint. I am ready to add
chicken to my meals. I like the newness of my food regiment, but feel
it’s time to make some adjustments. The raw food component of the
detox has taught me some great deal about meals that I can prepare
for myself that are both tasty and healthy. After not having chicken
or steak for 19 days it has began wearing on me just a little. Both
are sources of protein and I have been a meat eater for all my life.
I don’t think that will change. What will change and what has changed
is feeling that I need meat at every meal.
As I struggled through the day. I did have some fun along the way. I
played golf with some friends and my son and played more poker at
night. So it was a fun day. Near the end of the night I re-discovered
cucumbers and that brought a great ending to the day. They were
crunchy and tasty with some garlic and virgin olive oil. I still
want chicken, but the cucumbers were a good substitute for now.
