I think I mentioned that I was embarking on the "Daniel fast". (http://www.danielfast.wordpress.com/) I did a partial fast for 21 days. There are so many reasons that it was a great experience. I learned a lot about health. I was able to concentrate on God and building our relationship. I really wanted to do both of those things before we brought our daughter home. When I thought about things I might want to change in my parenting a young child this time around, nutrition was a big one.
So, since I ended my fast I have been struggling with what foods to add back into my diet. I have surprisingly liked have vegetarian meals, but wasn't sure that I wanted to try and live a vegan lifestyle. For a week or two I have done so well, but this weekend I have just collapsed in my efforts. I haven't had pop yet, but I have had dessert and meat, though it was venison which is at least healthier.
I need to get back to my original desires. I also need ideas for snacks and drinks that are healthy. I am getting tired of just water, and I need my snacks. Especially when I am out and about, what do I eat and or drink? Any ideas?
