Triumphs: I was so happy today to learn that I could make my own chocolate! I absolutely love chocolate, the feeling it gives my body, however I don't like the 'guilty' thoughts associated with eating it, and eating too much of it. I got today that if I make my meals from wholesome natural foods, then I don't actually feel sluggish, or that I over ate on too much gluten, or chemicals, so I don't have those thoughts of 'this food will make me sick and tired and bloated',or 'iam destroying my body with this crappy food','you suck because you obviously don't care about your body if you eat this' and bla bla bla so now its like aaahh freedom at last! I love it! So i purchased some cocao beans and a grinder to make the chocolate! wow I am so excited to see what my very own home made chocolate tastes like! Today I tried a raw cocao bean, and it was very sour, and had a dark, rich, thick consistency. I imagined what it must have been like for the Egyptians..I mean they worshipped these beans, and it is said that they would have 30 cocao drinks a day, and they even used them for currency! The food back then would have only been natural and wholesome, with no added anythings, i mean they didn't have to add anything did they, they didn't have supermarkets! So i can imagine when they first discovered the beans, how rich in flavour they must have been. Human beings tastes have certainly changed over the years, it seems we are less satisfied and are always adding new flavours to our foods.
Snacks: corn on the cob (i ate it raw for the first time, it was sensational!so sweet and ... raw!), cammomile and spearmint tea (the actual loose tea leaves), and peanuts in a shell, walnuts, strawberries, blueberries, cherries. (wow I ate a lot of snacks today!)
