I've had chicken to eat for the last 8 lunches and 8 dinners. That's 16 times in the past week.
Chicken tacos (twice).
Chicken salad (with homemade lemon-basil vinaigrette).
Chicken soup (too many times to count).
Grilled chicken sandwich.
The chicken is bland without a slice of homegrown tomato.
Bread is dry without butter, but toasted with olive oil and salt - it's not so bad. It also makes good croutons.
Not too mention I've had eggs every morning for breakfast so far. I'm not tired of it, yet...but I have never in my life purchased eggs so frequently.
It feels like I'm hungry more often. This strikes me as strange, because I'm not a huge snacker and don't overly indulge on junk food on a daily basis. I don't think I have a high-sugar diet, but I wonder, if by not eating it, my body is responding differently? Whatever it is, I don't necessarily like it. I WANT A COOKIE and I can't have one.
In the past 24 hours, I have already turned down cookies (twice), homemade brownies and a lemon-poppyseed scone. Not to mention I worked in our church cafe and resisted making myself an espresso drink.
I'm hoping the spiritual part of this will kick in soon. I've made the first 8 days about me and what I'm missing, and I know that's not the point.
May you, Lord, make me conscious of what I feast on - literally and figuratively speaking.
May I be open to hearing your voice during this experiment
