After recently turning the big 3-9, I decided to completely take leave of my senses and radically and dramatically transform my diet… Without consulting a professional for advice.
“Time to eat like a grown-up, Jo,” I muttered as I sat down to research every single food that has ever been accused of being a superfood.
I diligently noted them down and ended up with a rather long list:
Then, I went shopping.
Several hundred dollars and a second mortgage on my home later, I came home loaded up on all the foods on the list.
I spent the rest of the day coming up with meal combinations. I knew the key to sticking to this new eating plan (that I planned to stay on forever) was to be organised. The second it became hard, I’d let go off it. So I cooked and cleaned and diced and chopped and bagged and packed.
That night I had a bowl of pureed vegetable soup, which the kids loved too, and some fresh berries and nuts for supper. A good start.
The next morning I had a delicious breakfast of eggs, mushrooms and asparagus.
