30 Days of Gratitude..10.. I Don’t Want That..

Today is about the food I am grateful for….this comes at an ideal moment as I just found a You Tube video, by pure chance…by Michelle May….it’s not too long…take a look here.

Michelle has written Eat What You Love, Love what you Eat and everything she says in that video clip…up there…could well be me…. I have tried to watch what I eat for so long that it has become a non stop dieting, food obsessive lifestyle…without knowing I am doing it… I feel guilty when I eat something unhealthy….to make me feel better about this…I eat some more of it….then I decide that I have failed today so I might as well eat what I like and start again tomorrow….it’s a never ending cycle….and I just get bigger…

A little change of plan for me….just a little experiment…for the next month I shall eat what I like, when I feel hungry….but I will up the exercise, which is easy because it is almost non existent and I will keep busy….If I want cake I shall have cake….I will not say “I can’t have that….”  No more diet rules…I will only weigh to see if it works and if I can get myself out of the cycle the scales can go in the bin….

So….I am grateful for all foods….again I am so aware of people not getting enough food…of people who go without….I don’t understand a diamond ring costing millions and there still being starving people in the world…I just don’t…and it’s frustrating that this happens and there seems to be no way of changing it….

I am grateful for living in the land of the pasty…..yes, the Cornish pasty….and cream teas….with the jam on first and the cream on top….yes Cornish clotted cream….

I am grateful for cake….oh indeed….cups of tea and a slice of cake….

It is strange….when I start to think….if I want to have cake, I shall have cake….suddenly I don’t really fancy it….

This is going to be an interesting experiment….expect lots of food pictures…I am still revelling in the moments of amazement when I manage to create a successful meal…convenience meals now being a thing of the past….Not entirely sure what took me so long….But I really enjoy it now….cauliflower and chickpea curry in the style of Hugh Fernley Wotsit this evening….

Making the most of the hour change with the darker evenings….sitting by the fire….both cats settled….Mollie Topshop on her regal cushion with a regal leg dangling and Timmy Twoshoes hogging the sofa and the crochet blanket…in some sort of strange arms and legs tangled arrangement…

It’s Halloween….I don’t really do Halloween and forgot to get sweets….last year I had bags and bags of sweets and nobody called..this year if they call they can have a custard cream…..I ate all of the cake….

Happy Witching Folks….I am off to cook cauliflower with Hugh….

Have a good one!!
