Well, it has been harder than I imagined. The teenage natives who migrate through my classroom on a daily basis have been significantly restless this week, practicing pre-mating rituals like Pencil-Grab-and-Hide and Everyone Look At Me Because I'm Doing Something Funny.
I've found myself wanting to break my self-imposed rules several times, but I've managed to hold strong, in part due to replacing my wine glass with a bottle of kombucha.
I find it interesting that the entire bottle of Synergy only has 4 grams of sugar. It tastes so sweet to me. Does anyone know how to explain this?
Now that I'm not drinking workweek wine, I can actually remember what I ate all day (just kidding!!). For breakfast I had my usual green smoothie, which looks a little purple due to frozen cherries and chard.
Lunch involved Russell James's Nut-Free Bread, veggies, hummus, and olive tapenade (recipes from Raw Food Real World).
My pre-P90X snack was buckwheat cereal (Raw Food Real World again) and Pacific Natural Foods hemp milk (didn't have time to make my own).
While making dinner, I ate my weight in greens (in the form of kale chips).

For dinner I ate my normal giant salad, this time covered in hemp dressing from Delightfully Raw.
I'm thinking dessert will be mango sorbet.
Question: What kinds of rules do you hold yourself to? Are they hard to follow?
