Day 7 – Detox and Meal Prep

I love the saying, “If you stay ready, you don’t have to get ready.”  Today, I was ready to go to an event that I knew food would be served – perhaps something I could not eat on my detox plan.  I could have easily made the excuse that the meal is a part of the event; therefore, I must partake.  Nope! I had no idea what the meal was going to be, but I knew what I was supposed to eat.

I can not eat dairy, bread, pasta, and sugar.  I can have vegetables, fruit, quinoa, sweet potatoes and butternut squash, and more healthy stuff that I can not think of at the moment.  I am not doing a good job of referring back to the list provided by Move with Mack.  I know there are limitless possibilities if I really take the time to figure out what I should be eating.  Right now, I am happy with my veggies, quinoa, and fruit.

I attended the 2018 Be Well Mastermind Series – The SPICES of Life.  It was not just an event, but an EXPERIENCE!  The women I encountered today were simply amazing!  They were loving, kind, and willing to serve other women by being transparent and sharing their truths.  I showed up ready for my prepared lunch in my new fancy lunch bag.  The individual color-coded premeasured containers made it so easy!  At lunchtime, everyone around me complimented how good my food looked.  I had chopped salad, wild Tilapia, and of course, quinoa (my new favorite food replacing white rice, and for dessert, I had fresh slices of pears.  Dinner was Teriyaki Chicken Stir-fry (minus the Teriyaki sauce).

According to my VOICE:

I value my new system for meal preparation.  I see it as an opportunity to stay on track and not lose sight of my healthy lifestyle goals.  I intuitively know that preparing meals ahead of time will reduce my stress level about what to eat when I am hungry.  Forgiving myself (charity) for past food transgressions is also a big part of this.  If I focus on the years of overeating and poor food choices, I will begin to crave those poor foods; therefore, I release myself from the past.  Going forward, I must be a student of proper nutrition and engage in a whole new and improved lifestyle beyond this 10 Day Detox!
