So I went on a bit of a fruit fast this week. I wanted to try it because some friends that worked at the farmer’s market gave me a great deal on fruit. It’s also super healthy for you and evidently, the fruit fast gives your digestive system a break – because fruit is so easy to break down.
Well, I did fruit for breakfast and lunch – as much as possible. Then for dinner I ate meals that weren’t processed and super healthy. It was a great week.
I didn’t do it to lose weight, but I did do it for health. When you stop eating all that processed stuff and you just healthy stuff – your body tells you right away that it appreciates it. You can just feel all of that unhealthy stuff leave your body and you start to feel great.
What I also realized as I was conscious about my eating this week is that I really don’t eat too many bad things. Most things that I eat are fresh and pretty healthy.
The only time that I do not eat healthy is when I’m in a rush. When I haven’t planned well and I fall behind, the first thing that I throw out the window is what I eat. The trip to McDonalds is quite convenient. It’s a great lesson for me to think that when I rush, I eat junk. I’m not judging anyone that eats junk – you’re responsible for you, but I will change my habits for health.
For me – rushing leads to bad eating. I need to be conscious of what I eat.
