I'm fasting for Ash Wednesday. Catholics are allowed one meal on this day, and one or two smaller bits of food that can't equal up to another meal. Since breakfast is the most important meal of the day, as we all should know by now, I picked that one to savor and tried my damndest to get the most nutrition in as I could. Green smoothie it was.
I tried to keep myself busy during the day and was mostly successful but felt a little queasy and tired around 1 so I napped for an hour! It was nice, actually. I went to service at 3, photocopied my zine, ran a few errands, and returned home and had some tea.
Then at 7 I couldn't really hold off any longer, so I made a small bowl of miso broth with spinach and a few edamame.
I then prepared the Lemony-Olive Tempeh Tagine for tomorrow. We have plenty of food in the apartment but I kind of needed something to do. Ha, cooking kept my mind off of eating in some weird way. That's pretty telling about how much I eat just to have something to do. Geez.
Anyway, the fast was pretty easy but I definitely was getting a little menu planning and blog reading. Good to get stuff done. See you tomorrow with some REAL FOOD FINALLY.
