I am still on a diet. Not that kind of diet you used to do when you want to shape up, but this more like to stay healthy. Watching what I eat is the way to look after my body. If she says yes, then I'll eat, but if she rejects, then I will willingly follow.
I do this by muscle testing, which is always done by my beloved. He has a diploma of naturopath and mostly applies naturopathy ways to help us healthy. I personally agree with nature way, my body does too.
Take an example, when we tested a range of processed food, including grains, wheat bread, coffee and chocolate, my muscles go really weak, as well as those the supplements and vitamins packed in jars or bottles in the pharmacy. Surprisingly enough, when fruits, fresh vegetables, plain yogurt, herbs, rice and meat are tested, my muscles stay strong. I think it is just amazing.
I know become aware that there are food that my body likes and dislikes. So this is the diet I am taking at the moment. Not with bags of slimming tea, bottles of slimming tables, but I do it by watching what I eat. Right now, I have lost 2 kg and feel so much lighter, more energetic and I can always say that I love sport more than I do. I can keep up with continuously tiring houseworks, from morning to evening, swimming with the children, playing petanque in the evening, cooking, even cycling and walking up and down the hill without being puffed up. I think if I want to look after my body, I need to listen to its needs, not to what I want.
This is my kind of breakfast recently, taking turns with fruit salad, enjoyed with plain yogurt. No more granola, no more toasts with nutella spread. I surely miss them but I have nothing to lose.
My entry for HHDH this round, hosted by Meeta of What's For Lunch, Honey? and Tartesacher of 1000Sweet Desserts. I don't think you need a special recipe of this. I just halved these nectarines, picked from our orchard, drizzled with Manuka honey and freshly grated nutmeg. I just love it. Fresh, natural, light and organic. What more can you ask?
Books for Love auction is still running. I have to extend the time until February 16, 2009. It seems that I've lost many participants this year. Anyway, I'll keep run it until we have met the reserved price of each item. Hopefully, there'll be more of you who can be kindly donating for the kids with cancer in Indonesia.
