I don’t know about you, but I always find the first few days of a shiny new project to be the easiest. Those are the days when I have the most energy and enthusiasm for whatever it is I’m excited about, even when I don’t know much about it. Actually, that’s the fun part: the finding out and researching.
So these first few days of Lent have been quite easy. I haven’t craved anything; my food is still tasty and filling; there’s a plethora of yummy-sounding recipes out there, just waiting to be discovered.
I feel hungry sometimes, of course I do. Usually about four or five hours after a meal, which is about right and the same as before. I don’t really trust all those diets which claim to make you never feel hungry again. Hunger isn’t something to be afraid of. You won’t starve by waiting an extra hour or so before your next meal. In fact, you should feel hungry at meal-times, otherwise you won’t enjoy your food.
And the wonderful thing about this plant-based eating is: I get to eat lots because it’s mostly all vegetables. Fruit for breakfast, veg for supper.
It’ll be interesting to see if it continues to be as easy…
