Day 12: changes

I’ve been feeling really great since we started this elimination diet/cleanse/whatever, with one major problem: I have started hating food. I’m so frustrated by the limited selection of proteins that I don’t want to eat anything, which would be great if the goal was anorexia but is not great when the goal is overall health with a side goal of weight loss.

So today I bought a cake of tofu. I weighed my options and decided that I’d rather add one legume-based food than any type of dairy. Health-wise, I think goat cheese is probably a wiser choice, but I have a liiiiittle portion control problem with the stuff and weight loss might be a secondary goal but it is definitely a goal.

So I bought tofu and I made this:

tofu-yellow-curry

Yellow Thai curry with tofu, bok choy, and peppers. It was DELICIOUS and I have no regrets.

    I remember from past experience that you function MUCH better with a good dose of protein (thinking of London, 1995).

    Oh god, that was the worst. I have been eating tons of protein, it’s just that I’d rather SMASH EVERYTHING than eat another goddamn egg or bowl of nuts.

    I ate 1/3 of a log of goat cheese for lunch. I have regrets.

    That looks seriously delicious. Awesome!

    I might look up some healthy curry recipes, make ’em and freeze ’em (so I don’t end up eating pasta and cheese ad infinitum).
