Wednesday 26 September

It has been my experience that the third day of a new eating regime is always really tough. Well, today was the third day…added to that, as I posted yesterday, due to hormonal issues I am starving. I am also very tired. I started off okay but my hunger was out of control so that I even ended up eating pizza today.  I slept in the afternoon, I did everything ‘wrong’. I did not have my lemon water and sure enough even though subsequent elimination was fine, I still felt bloated all day.

Grapefruit with cardamom and ginger

According to The Ayurvedic Cookbook, which I refer to at least 8 times a day, Kapha is not advised to eat grapefruit, obvious reasons being that the essence of grapefruit is cold and wet, like Kapha. However, I found a recipe for grapefruit that has been modified for Kapha and I like it. It’s so quick to make. Back in the day, waaay before I’d ever heard of Ayurveda, I used to heat up a grapefruit in the oven and sprinkle it with honey as my breakfast.

Sautéed beets (p 31) and Everyday yellow dhal (p 39 Kahate)

Made an extra portion yesterday so that I could have some for lunch today.

Take-out Pizza
I was supposed to be making Urad Dal but fell asleep and by the time the BF got home and woke me I had NO inclination to cook so asked if we could have a vegetarian pizza from the wood burning oven pizza place round the corner. Needless to say, I felt very bloated afterwards.

Tomorrow will be a more mindful day!
