Yesterday I had a busy day - was filled up by primary foods - the parts of life that are not the food we eat that fulifill us and play a huge role in health and wellness. I talked to an old friend, got to see my roommate who was out of town for a while, go for a run, help my friend do a workshop on manifestation, read a magazine, and sleep in a little cabin in the hills of Oakland.
Here's what I've been eating the past couple days. My hunger level dropped today- maybe because it's so hot or because my mood shifted a bit and I had a busy day. I got to be near Lake Merrit this morning which was beautiful and relaxing.
As you can see, I have been craving a lot of fat. Fat keeps me feeling full and grounded. Healthy fats are: olive oil, nuts and seeds/nut and seed butters, avocado, fish, cocout oil, & olives. If you are not getting enough fats then you will continue to feel hungry and end up eating things that don't satisfy that need and are less healthy. This is why low fat diets backfire.
