Who are you going for this weekend? If you don’t know what I am talking about it is Super Bowl weekend. Whether you are sitting down to watch the game or just the commercials I hope you have a great time. For me, I want to focus on the food.
If you have been following my posts you know I started a cleanse last Saturday. I know, poor timing on my part, right? But I don’t see it that way. I don’t want food to be my center of enjoyment or pleasure. I want to enjoy the event, the people, the game. Or whatever it is going on in life at the time.
I just moved to Arizona and my husband wants to go out to a new restaurant to try out the local food. And this sounds great to me. There are so many choices that can be made that will still keep me on my cleanse.
Here are some tips on staying true to yourself and still enjoying life.
- Order a salad (if on a cleanse avoid the dairy)
- Order a sandwich or hamburger without the bun
- Drink Lemon water
- Order quinoa or brown rice with fish
- Baked chicken
Don’t use food as your pleasure, use food for fuel. Enjoy the company you are with. Give your attention to your guest(s) and to your surroundings. Sit back and listen to what is going on around you. Put your phone down. Have awareness in your life.
Whatever your plans are this weekend or any other time in life, plan what you will eat. Focus on the atmosphere. And eat to fuel your body.
I want to invite you to check out my podcast for more in depth information on not using food for fulfillment.
