Yesterday I had a huge fruit smoothie and that was so satisfying. I had a great writing day and felt very connected to inspiration and just was in a flowing mode with my creativity. That felt great. I waited to 4pm to have cooked homemade lentils and veggies soup. I made organic california brown rice and stirred that up and ate the biggest plate of it. I looked at it and thought wow that is alot of food. Afterwards the lentils are so dense that it felt quite heavy on my stomach. It was ok though. I had met up with friends as we always do and in the past would have stuffed myself with the restaurant food. Last night as I was full at the restaurant at 9pm I choice a soup just to have something to have with my friends so that I was not the "noneater" at the table. I was for the first time really focusing on conversation as I was not starving. I was noticing more interactions at the table and felt fully present. This is my happiness breakthrough.
Previous thinking was don't spoil your appetite before you go to a restaurant with friends as you want to eat all the food choices there appetizer, main meal, dessert. Well guess what I am putting my health first so yes have your homemade foods as much as you want at home. When you then go to the outing with friends and going for the social aspect, not so much for the food, it is ok to eat up well at home and then have a little something out with friends. I have never felt so happy, so consistently good all day yesterday. I had my creative juices going with my writing but may do some art stuff today to see how it goes today and enjoy all the HCLV food I want for that steady nutrition flow into my brain and body.
It just clicked for me. This is a way I can make this work for me and my social commitments.
Enjoying today to its fullest.
Love and Light.
