Starting Over

So, yeah, I know it's only been a day, but I'm going to have to start again tomorrow. I finally hit the grocery store this evening, and even then I wasn't sure what to get. I bought some soy cheese, brown rice, wild rice, crackers (have to double-check on those) and "soy crisps" that I believe are all right. But by then, I was too hungry to actually prepare anything. So, tomorrow, though dinner is going to be my once a week cheating meal. And then, on Sunday, I have to go out for Mother's Day lunch? Recommendations for fish for a non-fish lover? And is anybody else getting grief (yeah, I know, already) for doing this from their family?


My mother was giving me a bit of a hard time about it because I already have a vitamin deficiency. I explained to her the things I was eating and how I was looking out for myself. I also reassured her that when I told the nurse about it when I went for my monthly B12 shot she was fine about the food choices I was making.
fish rec. i would go for something that has a chicken texture and not very fishy. i like mahi mahi, or tuna steaks. my fav. is salmon. i do like fish but those seem milder to me than others.

family seems fine with it. it is just a matter of time before they realize what i am eating tastes good. bwahaha. the problem for most people IMO is that it is not "normal" to eat mostly veggies and or things that are healthy.

it does take a bit of planning for the food end. the fast things are necessarily the best to eat etc. i suggest you look over the menu on the detox link that erin posted. it is a guideline. i am no expert by any means though i am creative with food. also don't be afraid to have a little bit of a lot of different stuff. there is nothing that i can see that says that you must have a whole cup of cereal for breakfast if you would prefer to have 1/2 c. of it and then a smoothy. being creative helps with not being bored with your food.

of course i just started this and my tune may be different next week when i get sick of quinoa and stir fry tofu. LOL good luck.

Someone at work today told me we didn't fight our way to the top of the food chain to eat vegetables...
I won't be actually starting it until Monday, but I expect major grief in response to what I am eating. I may start with the veggie lasagna on Monday so that they can have a tasty meal before they even know what I am doing.
