I am in the middle of a 3 day fast. It is not a true fast, where one eats nothing, but a fast of my own creation. I thought about doing the popular Daniel fast http://daniel-fast.com/, where you eat a mostly vegan diet, but I am no Daniel. My “fast” is mostly a fast from fast-foods. I have been on a huge downward spiral with my eating since I was pregnant with my last baby. My baby is almost 11 now. Hello! I feel like we are all in a circle and I need to say “Hi, I’m addicted to fast-food. My drug of choice is anything fried”.
So what have I been eating? I have been juicing and eating very little but very healthy foods. I mostly juice in the mornings and eat very light meals made up of mostly fruits and vegetables. Mind you this is only a 3 day fast. Last night was tricky because I was making dinner for my 11 year old son who says he is hungry about 20 times a day and means it. “Necessity is the mother of invention” so I made cheese quesadillas for the wonderboy and soft tacos from corn tortillas stuffed with grilled onions and yellow peppers, chili powder, sea salt, and black beans. I topped them with fresh guacamole. We also had steamed brown rice with fresh homemade salsa. I wish I had taken a picture of these but I was soooooo hungry that I scarfed them up before I could take the picture. Here is a picture of the same type of tacos.
I will add these to my repertoire of healthy meals. Next time I will add some zucchini and corn to these tacos. Check back and I will let you know how I am doing after my 3 day fast is over.
