Day 3/30 – Getting into the habit

Day 3 went like smooth sailing. I had overnight oats for breakfast with liverwurst toast and juice, for lunch I had a zucchini and carrot soup while dinner consisted of stuffed eggplants with rice. I should’ve mentioned it earlier maybe but I’m in the process of moving and have surges of stress even though I, as of today, have packed most things. I guess it’s the clutter that results from having a bunch of boxes, bags etc. everywhere that contributes to the feeling of being overwhelmed. On top of everything I have an acceptance celebration and a wedding to attend in two days (how the hell did I get here?). I miss my slow mornings with meditation, yoga and reading insightful quotes. But…this too shall pass. Throughout the day my thoughts kept wandering to the rainforests of the world.

My concerns for having to do a lot of thinking in terms of finding alternatives for dairy and meat proved unnecessary (although many alternatives can be very expensive for a tight budget). I bought some tempeh and decided to give tofu a try though I’m skeptical about eating it (will tell you why later this week). Also, to my surpirse I easily found two affordable sandwich toppings, baba ganouch and liverwurst (yes we eat that for breakfast here in Sweden). All and all day two went well. For breakfast I had two toasts with baba ganouch, juice and a banana. My chick pea snack helped with between meals cravings, while dinner consisted of fruit bread with liverwurst (long day). I was simply to tired to do the guacamole recipe that Muriel suggested, but IContinue reading
