I start the day right.....................
I've heard it. I used to say it. I still hear it from people.
"I start the day right and then it falls apart in the evening."
So I began istening to what people considered "starting the day right." In most cases I wanted to slit my wrists. Fat-free Cottage cheese and fruit is not starting the day right for me. Plain Oatmeal is not starting the day right for me. A smoothie is not starting the day right for me.
Now don't get me wrong, I eat those things. I eat them because I enjoy them. I eat them in amounts that will keep me satisfied for several hours. I eat them doctored up so they make me feel like I am not on a diet. For example I'll put some shredded coconut in that cottage cheese; some pumpkin and maple syrup in that oatmeal.
And if I am not in the mood for those things I eat pancakes or waffles; sausage and eggs.
There's a difference between starting the day right eating foods you think you should eat and starting the day eating what you enjoy.
And I often wonder if that is why it falls apart in the evening for so many? What do you think?
I think we should be on a never ending quest to REALLY enjoy our meals.
