Well here we are on Day 2 of the GM diet which means all the vegetables I can eat as well as one potato with breakfast!
I have decided to keep the potato until lunch because I will be making a vegetable curry using the ingredients - eggplants, beans, onion, potato, capsicum, kaffir lime leaves, ginger, garlic and chili. I stir fry this in a non stick pan and add some red curry paste which is vegetarian, apart from a little bit of shrimp paste for flavour but I can live with that!
I love making curry with chicken, vegetables and coconut milk as well, but not today. TODAY IS VEGETABLE ONLY DAY!
Breakfast this morning consists of black herbal tea and vegetables baking in the oven - eggplant, carrot and pumpkin. A light spray of oil and sea salt sprinkled on top and YUM!
Yesterday was DAY 1 and consisted of as much fruit as I could eat - I had a great time eating all sorts of delicious fruits and my body feels so much better today because of it. All bloating is gone and I slept like a baby last night!
Late yesterday I poached pear and apple slices and ate half whilst they were still hot and the other half once they had cooled in the fridge - it is a really lovely way to bring out the sugar in the fruit and reduce the acidity and it only takes 5 minutes! A very nice way to end my fruit day.
Today my sparksfriend Joy is on DAY 3 of the GM diet and we are sharing recipes and ideas. We are both feeling so much 'lighter and brighter' already! It is so helpful to be doing a program like this with someone else as we encourage each other daily, just like we did last time. We've got this Joy!! x
Have a great day everyone and thanks for your awesome encouragement! I missed everyone also!
