Good day!

  • Yoga- simple meditating for 10 minutes in the back yard. Cold, but relaxing. I think I'm breathing better.
  • A small coffee, with milk
  • 2.5 ounces of cheese, cheddar
  • 1 slice of bread, whole wheat
  • 2.5 ounces of cheese, cheddar
  • 1 slice of bread, whole wheat
  • 1.5 servings of rice, white
  • 2 servings of lentils
  • 1 diet soda
  • Almonds, 10
  • Tomato, basil salad
  • 3 pieces of dhokla
Late night craving:

  • Splitting the bread and cheese into breakfast and snack was a good idea. I do get crazy hungry abuit 10:30-11am, and thats when I really want something.
  • Went shopping and got some veggies and fruits that are lower in calories (and fat calories) and therefore easier on the liver.
  • Researched a bit and found out that the following foods are liver friendly:
* beets, asparagus, broccoli,
* green and red cabbage, brussels sprouts
* carrots, squash, okra
* collard greens, mustard greens, kale, romaine lettuce, arugula
* cauliflower
* green beans
* peas
* tomatoes
* spinach
* potatoes, yams, avocado
* onions, garlic, ginger, bell peppers, olives, radishes
* eggs - two a day
* flax seed oil - two tablespoons a day
* olive oil
* apples, grapefruits, oranges, plums, cherries, peach, berries
* cranberry juice
* sesame seeds, cashews, almonds
* pumpkin, papaya, mangoes
* all lettuces except iceberg
* brown rice
* chicken, fish
* all legumes, sprouts of all types
* organic soy milk, almond milk, oat milk, rice milk, distilled water
* honey, maple syrup
* basil, bay leaves, caraway,
* rosemary, dill, parsley, thyme
* oregano, tarragon, chives, cardamom
  • Of the above, am certainly not doing the 2 eggs a day bit- just too much.
  • Sprouts are a good idea that I am definitely interested in.
All in all, a day a better day than yesterday!
