Aside from freaking out and feeling the pressure of getting started, I’m ascared to lay out my rules (oh wait, I hate that word because it makes me want to break them) for the next 7 days. So here are my plans for my week of mutiny on foods.
1. Go to the Farmer’s Market on Saturday to stock up for the week of 7 foods.
REASON: I’ve been flirting with eating Paleo and this was suggested by a friend for the most nutritious food.
2. I can have black coffee up to noon.
REASON: I can not handle a mutiny without caffeine — I can’t even handle life without it. Jen’s council of girlfriends gave permission for a few things and so my counsil, hubby, gladly gives permission for black coffee before noon. Why only black coffee? Because I know me, remember I’m a cheater so I would be running out the door for a Starbucks I’m sure.
3. Drink only water after noon.
REASON: To wash down a morning full of caffeine. just sayin’
4. Stick to ONLY the foods listed below.
–leafy greens (spinach and lettuce)
–squash (all varieties)
–tomatoes (any kind)
–apples (the good juicy kind)
–watermelon (‘cuz they are in season and I looooove them)
–chicken (the bird-like kind, not the kind typing out this post)
REASON: There’s a variety among those 7 foods listed, which actually makes it more than 7 foods. I can hear your sneers — Cheater! Cheater! But I wanted something more sustainable for a long term mutiny, not just for 7 days.
5. For OTHERS: Go through pantry and give away what is not being used.
REASON: Excessiveness has to go. There are others out there who can use my stored up excessiveness!
