Looking For A Different Passion Other Than Food?
… and changing over to a Eat to Live person has been an interesting… and challenging experience.
I realised I actually needed to find my passion to fill my need for meaning instead of using food for that purpose. No more thinking constantly of what treat to make or to buy or looking in the fridge constantly to see if something have magically appeared that takes my fancy as a way of filling in the space inside.
I think the journey towards my passion is an ongoing odyssey. It changes and grows as I change and grow and getting healthy and sharing everything I have learnt with anyone who will listen (hence this blog) is a big part of my passion.
It’s certainly not impossible to go out for a meal as long as I pick the right restaurant and order only the meat and above ground vegetables. Unfortunately it’s always the better restaurants (more expensive) that will have better quality foods and oils and be more accommodating for my needs. Forget eating at takeaways or fat food places, they just don’t have anything to offer.
When I eat out I try make sure I get enough good fat in my meal, as there isn’t the usual potato or pasta as a filler. This will make sure I am full and so won’t be tempted to order a dessert. I will ask for some extra virgin olive oil or I will bring some butter, ghee or coconut oil to put on my meal myself.
I will drink mostly mineral water with a little lemon juice squeezed into it. This drink is amazingly satisfying. The other really good drink to have, when I can get it, is a pot of green tea.
