Hubs and I went to see Hunger Games last night.
As a fan of the book, I just felt that the movie was lacking in so many areas. The characters weren’t well developed, the quick cuts and shaky camera was distracting to a point where I couldn’t even focus on a shot, and moments I felt were so beautifully complex and rich in the book fell flat on screen…I could go on, but I’m hungry.
Speaking of which, I feel like the Katniss of real life because I have kicked my hunger to the CURB over the last 2 days. After a failed attempt at morning muffins that left me sobbing in a bathtub cursing life, I came across a recipe for blueberry muffins online. Holy shit. These bad boys are amazing. No egg, no dairy, no gluten, no refined sugar. I never thought I could get so excited about almond flour.
I have to give Adventures of a Gluten Free Mom credit for guiding me out of the muffin-less lack of carb rage I was in a few days ago. Her Knee Slappin Good Blueberry Muffins produced enough knee slappage to conduct a veritable ho down in my kitchen last night.I have lost my camera so I couldn’t take any pics of the masterpiece, unfortunately. Hubs rated them as: “Better than expected.” but as one who has not tasted anything close to bread or muffin for almost 2 weeks, I rate them “Divine”.
This is really not meant to be turning into a food blog, but this diet is kind of forcing me to think and plan for every single meal at all times.
I got through whatever crazed detox symptoms were going on a few days ago. I feel completely energized, and I have been sleeping like a log.
I am learning to be mindful of the food I am taking into my body. It’s strange to say, but I have never done this before. I always just sort of ate stuff and forgot about it. By putting care and time into each meal, it is making me connect the dots between what I eat and how I feel.
I am craving water now. Never happened to me before. I went from barely drinking 2 glasses of H2o a day, to drinking 2 quarts per day. It’s amazing to actually want water.
