The very first chapter really opened my eyes to what the transformations in my life recently have been - to prove to myself that I "am enough" for me, as she says in the book. The author's point was to realize that Jesus was enough for her. Time will tell how spiritual (or not) this experiment will be for me personally. I haven't decided whether it's personal growth or spiritual growth that I hope and expect to gain the most over the next few months, but I do know I'm just going to take it one day and one chapter at a time.
The first chapter is about cutting out all but seven foods, and for me this was an excellent place to start. I'm so dependent on food, and not for nutrition. I've been working to steer my entertainment and hobbies away from eating and into a more fulfulling and active lifestyle. So we began. Yesterday, month 1 day 1 started a month of eating from just the following seven food catagories:
- Yogurt with granola and honey
- Whole wheat bread/corn tortillas/brown rice
Day 1 included:
Yogurt for breakfast and yogurt for lunch. I had a banana for a snack, and pulled chicken (made with salsa, water, and minimal olive oil) tacos on corn tortillas. No cheese. That one may kill me!
