Well, I was completely proud of myself today. I had to pack a lunch for a day away from home....a lunch where I wasn't 'tweaking' from a restaurant. I was a bit worried at first, but I prevailed. :o)
I made salmon sandwhiches for Bridget and Issys lunch, but before I did that, I separated some out for me. Theirs had mayo, mine didn't. And since I was going to be away, rice bread wouldn't work. Normally, I would toast my rice bread, lightly butter it, and put salmon on it...it's quite nice, actually. Today I just packed salmon in a container. I had a container of spicy hummus too, and some lime rice crackers, a couple refined-sugar-free/gluten-free shortbread cookies, an apple (which Issy confiscated) and water with lemon. I was completely satisfied. Sure it's not conventional food, but I enjoyed it. This transition to healthy food....it's a done deal....easy, enjoyable. I don't need to eat what other people eat just because it's the norm, or convenient. I feel good. The food tastes good. That's all that counts. Another situation handled with ease, and it just boosts my confidence all the more. Each time I am successful on this journey, it fortifies me to continue. As a friend says "onward and upward."
