Yeah, I could never taste the sugar on sushi before. Now, I can. But, I'm not going to sweat it. I'm having my sushi, damnit. Ya know, here's my take on it all. I have cut out so much. So many poisons I have deleted from my life. But, there are some things that have benefits which I don't find to be completely horrible. Like sushi. It's the only kind of fish anything I will eat. So, I feel like the fish and the seaweed out weigh the tiny amount of sugar on the rice. Maybe I'm delusional. If I run around denying myself everything outside of meat and veg cooked in a frying pan, I am going to be miserable. At my core, I am a foodie. The whole primal transition was HARD. I love to cook, I love to eat. Mostly I love eating new foods. Being primal really set limits on that. You have no idea how much I miss my "wine, cheese, and bread" nights with Som. We would go to the local artisan bakery and cheese shop and buy a different bread/cheese combo and have it for dinner with wine.
Am I making any sense? It's the same thing with craft beer. I'm still going to have one every now and then. Same thing with high quality cigars. Don't get me wrong, I love this new way of living. I am losing weight like no other time before. I feel better. The biggest change in me is my MOOD. Oh I was so crabby and irritable before. Not so much anymore. I am happy, free of depression and a lot more tolerant than before.
Anyway, I didn't mean to go on a rant. I'm certainly not ranting AT you. I just have to remember through all this that this is my one life. I am not going to walk through it fearing the ingredients in every nugget of food that goes into my mouth. I control it all at home, so when I go out, I just... don't. I only eat Sushi at his place because I know the quality of their food. It's 2nd day fresh fish, and they make all their own sauces and what not. No junk there. Do I eat at generic corporate/fast food joints? Oh hell no. Everything there is crap. But I still go to places where I know the food is quality and fresh made. Not frozen, packaged, etc.
OKOKOKOKOKOKOKKKKK Rant over. Sorry, Ya'll. I'm so upset by this crap in Boston. Just not myself today.
The process is simple: Free your mind, and your ass will follow.
