Here's my "sin" list for this week:
Friday - Pantomime kids party. Bacon quiche, sausage roll, tuna / ham / cheese rolls, cheese and pineapple on sticks.
Saturday - Dinner party. Pate. Thai seafood curry. Pheasant wrapped in bacon. Apple tart tartan, apple creamy thing. Cheese and crackers.
Sunday - Bacon roll. I ate it in secret so no-one would see me falling off the wagon.
Monday - Cows milk in coffee as I had no money for soy milk.
Wednesday - Cheese sandwich from Tesco.
Thursday - Chicken flavour Super Noodles.
Friday - 1 1/2 Chocolate cup cakes.
In between these slips, I've been eating no animal products.
Why?Honestly, I don't know for sure. I think it's mainly psychological. I'm viewing this as a restriction on my "normal" diet. Instead I should be viewing it as improving my previously unhealthy diet.
There may also be a nutritional factor in there too. I think it may be that I am not getting my full set of essential amino-acids (proteins are amino-acids). To rectify this, I'm currently sprouting chickpeas and green lentils. Together these will ensure I am consuming adequate amounts of complete proteins. I've got some tasty meals planned for them. :)
So, here's to next week, back on the wagon with a vengeance!
