Had a day and a half of meetings for work on Friday and Saturday. Huge boxes of donuts were brought in for breakfast. Noticed again the shift happening in me (must be answered prayer, cuz I have NEVER been able to choose this kind of thinking): I looked at them and thought, "that would be really bad for my body." Yes, I still know they are delicious. But...that somehow now matters less to me than their effect on my health. CRAZY STUFF! I love it. Thank you, God.
I have company coming today. It's been a bit of a challenge, thinking through cooking for company. I eat some truly strange combinations and call them meals - for instance, the other night I ate a baked sweet potato and a pile of oven-roasted brussels sprouts, with a glass of milk. It was yummy and complete to me, but you know...you don't really feed a meal like that to company! LOL And my habit has been to feed really high fat/high carb meals for company. Takes a whole new approach, doing life this way.
Did some googling (oh Google, how I love you so....) and found a couple of low-fat, hearty recipes - a black bean chili that had me looking for (and finding!) one bottle of dark beer at almost midnight in the grocery store, and a sort of stew with lentils, sweet potatoes, and chicken in it. I love cooking for company so much - can't wait to see how these come off.
Anyway I think we'll manage eating healthy and still being a treat, not a hardship.
Nice that it is possible!
