So. Here I am, on my break, at my beloved grocery store. Since I'm not having to spend the gratuitous time it takes to decide what to eat, purchase, and feast, I find myself with about forty minutes of free time. Today, I've decided to write a quick little blog, and continue reading Michael Pollan's newest book, In Defense of Food: An Eater's Manifesto.
This time around, fasting that is, I'm doing the master cleanse, which I've never done before. Usually when I fast I do a juice fast for about three days, and, in my opinion, the result were positive. This fast consists of drinking a lemonade made from lemons, maple syrup (grade 'b'), and cayenne. It is actually quite tasty. You're supposed to drink from six to twelve eight ounce servings of this maple drank every day.
Day four is going well. I haven't been hungry since I started, and my energy levels are about the same -- if not higher -- than usual. I have been watching food shows, reading about food just like normal, and none of that hot food porn has piqued my appetite. My mind is focused, and I feel good. There are still six more days on this fast, and then it's go time. I'm really dieing to try the lamb sweetbreads at parkside, and dammit, nothing's gonna stop me now.
For shits and giggles, I'll be posting a few blogs that are in queue: a review of Saba Blue Water Cafe, Some Food I Ate (title borrowed from the Vegan Treehouse), and some odds and ends, as well as more updates on fasting.
Life is beautiful, and so are you.
