Do you realize that healthy food could be addictive, after all?
I just recently became addicted to Muesli, of all things. I had always wanted to grab a pack off the grocery shelves, but the price seemed to be too prohibitive for me before. Last week, I threw caution to the wind and bought me Muesli. My only regret is the fact that I am now addicted to it. Aside from that, the only thing I realize is that Muesli inspired me to eat more healthily.
I had recently discovered that I could not tolerate large amounts of fast-burning carbohydrates, as are found in white rice. When I’ve overdosed on white rice, I would become intolerably sleepy and consequently unproductive. Because of that, I would avoid eating white rice and would just go for either meat or vegetables. The result was that though I was less sleepy, my bowel movement suffered. And so, I was racking my brain for a solution.
When I got hooked on Muesli, I realized that that had solved my dilemma. It helped regulate my bowel movements, while also giving me the energy to go through the night and early into the mornings, without slowing me down because of sugar metabolism.
Because of that, I resolved that my diet would become: Muesli + broiled/steamed/least fat possible meats + veggies stir-fried in healthy oils.
I make a mean veggie stir-fry, if I say so myself, and I’m looking forward to getting my own stove. Or else, maybe I could just go for salads, because my room is too cramped for frying. I think I’ll be getting oil on everything if I stir-fried here. But the general plan is that: eat healthily, with veggies and healthy meats, plus whole, slow-release-glucose grains.
In this age when one’s health is of the utmost priority, it helps that healthy food is addictive. 🙂
