Well, when my body tells me it is hungry, I feed it. Logic, right? Right. So anyway, I'm not saying this was a bad thing or anything like that- my body obviously needed the extra fuel and was telling me so through ridiculous hunger pangs. However, now that the hanger (hungry anger ;P) has finally calmed down... I seem to have the belly of a pregnant woman come the end of the day!
Where am I going with this?
Life changes in a matter of days and it was now time for me to change my eating habits yet again (as my body was back to the normal level of hunger (still quite high compared to others!) and I had to cut back on the amounts of foods I had been eating to calm the beast!
So, here's a look at some of the delicious meals I've been nom-ing on as of very recently:
Next up on my 'meals to deflate the bloat':
In the mix was roasted pumpkin, potato, sweet potato, eggplant, brussels sprouts, parsnip, beetroot and broccoli, with some spinach, drained and rinsed cannelini beans and lentils throughout!
Then of course there have been plenty of smoothies:
More gigantic bowls of veg:
What I've been trying to do in these last few days is simply listen to my body, stopping my eating when I'm full (see, when I was ravenously hungry, there was no way I would be able to eat slow and sense my hunger signals) eating a lot more whole fruit and veg, a little less grains and I'm finally starting to feel a little more like my usual self!
The take-away message? A detox doesn't have to mean only drinking juice for seven days, it can simply mean becoming a little more mindful and fueling your amazing body with all the delicious rainbow foods of nature!
Do you ever get periods of extreme hunger in your life?
Do you ever get serious food babies/ pregnancy bloats? I do. Too often.
What foods do you like to eat to help you back on track?
That's it from me today folks- I hope you all have an amazing day, do something you love doing, spend time with those you love and as always; EAT SOMETHING DELICIOUS!! Bye for now friendly friends!! :D
