As I constantly try to improve myself in a quest to Build A Better Body™, I have recently adjusted my eating habits to what seems to be a more sensible routine.
I’m eating about six small meals a day.
I’m finding my energy level and my weight control is much more in check with this system. For example, this morning I had a bowl of oatmeal at 7:30. At 9:00, I drank some orange juice. At 10:30 I had a serving of applesauce, at 12:30 I had a “lunch bar” (a chocolate thing that is suppose to replace a traditional lunch) and right now at 2:15 p.m. I’m enjoying a serving of leftover brussel sprouts.
I must say that I absolutely adore brussel sprouts. I find them so good. Even as a child I loved brussel sprouts and many other vegetables that kids traditionally dislike; beets, stewed tomatoes, yams, squash, all of it is very tasty to me. I like the more traditional veggies as well, peas, beans, carrots… I think the only thing I really shy away from is seafood. I’ve never been a big seafood fan, though I did like “fishburgers” from the school cafeteria back in the day. Especially when they were chased with a dollop of tartar sauce.
As I continue my healthy quest (part 2), I’m finding myself not feeling as mopey. I actually want to do things. I think my blood pressure is lower, in fact, I should check it this weekend at one of those free blood pressure machines at the local pharmacy. I’m still chomping to get out on my bike and hit the road, but Mother Nature hasn’t released her winter grip on us yet. I can feel a bike ride coming soon though. I can’t wait to shed some of these winter clothes and get into something more reasonable – a pair of shorts and a simple shirt. And bare feet.
All of this because I ate my brussel sprouts today.
