I wanted to go the whole month on banana island, but after 2 weeks I was allowing myself to get super stressed about it, and at that point I think it was doing more harm than good. Rather than focusing on how much fun lfrv was, I was just waiting for the magical healing of my skin that I'd totally expected. It never came, and I felt like I needed to stay on banana island until my skin was better. That said, I could have been on banana island for years! I was happiest on lfrv when I was focusing on how good I felt rather than what I couldn't eat. So...I feel somewhat defeated, I really wanted to go the whole month. Maybe I'll give it a try later on, but for now I'm excited to delve into the lfrv recipes I was enjoying! I still have bananas so I'll probably munch on them for one or two meals a day, but I definitely miss my beautiful salads at night and really really really really really really really really (really!) want a salad with papaya and cilantro dressing. I miss oranges, and tomatoes!! Maybe tomatoes tonight. I'm trying not to get too crazy with it :p
So...epic fail or sensible decision? You can be honest, am I just quitting because I'm a huge wussface or what?
Bananas make me breakout for sure.
I'm buying out papayas from the grocery store whenever they have em, but I can't get enough at one time to do an island. I think I'm going to take a break from the island thing for a while, but still do mono meals for breakfast and lunch! I'm definitely going to try oranges too.
