Getting hungry...

I've hit the hunger point.  I don't want liquid anymore and it's killing me to sit and drink broth these days.  So last night I had a little fish and rice.  It was pretty dang good.  I have to be careful with experimenting...I'm skipping over the "mushies stage" and I know there is a reason they ask us to follow a specific menu schedule.

On Wednesday I can start yogurt, applesauce, puréed food, etc.  I'm super excited about that.  I'm trying to not let my life revolve around food...and really it doesn't until that hunger hits then I think of all the things I want to eat...not what I can eat.

Plus it doesn't help that the Food channel has been on TV lately.  Its like a punishment...I just watched a show about BBQ around the world.  Divine.

  1. Hahaha--the food network is to us what porno channels are to priests!! We must "abstain"!! ;)

    Fish and rice sounds perfectly healthy--you can also puree soaked cashews (they taste like cream cheese when softened and pureed!) or add peanut butter to your smoothie; here's one of my FAVORITE smoothies of all time:

    1 cup ice
    1 banana
    1/2 cup almond milk (cows milk=bad for blood sugar)
    1 cup spinach
    1 tablespoon peanut butter
    1 scoop vanilla protein powder
    (you can get great vegan protein powders in Amazon, since whey-based protein powders are bad for diabetics)

    Blend in your blender and be amazed--this thing tastes AWESOME. You can't even taste the spinach!!

    Also, you can cook up mexican veggies and black beans (think: salsa, diced tomatoes, cilantro, onions, spinach, zucchini all simmered together with some garlic and onion) then puree them in your blender and they make a HEARTY, thick, filling soup that has no "bad" ingredients at all.

    I hope this helps--I can't imagein the withdrawls you must be going through without solids--hang in there; you are going to look so sexy soon that you will be saying, "Solids? Shmolids!" :)
