Days 8 & 9 - the Revision

I'm happy to say I'm still feeling quite fantastic on this whole little detox thing. Although I've still got the same cravings, I'm feeling quite lovely.

And - we're starting our "ramp up" on Wednesday, which is where you finish out the detox by adding certain foods every day so you don't throw your body into shock by going straight back to regular foods. I believe fresh vegetables in their natural state (aka. salad) are on the docket for Wednesday, although I'm still trying to remind myself that fresh vegetables does not equal nachos, which I've had a very intense craving for lately.

A funny story - I was at Walmart a few weeks ago, before the detox, and was just buying some vegetables. I didn't have a large order, only about 6 or 7 bags of different produce, which I placed on the belt. There was a little 7 or 8 year old boy in front of me with his mother who was eyeing my purchases for awhile before he leaned into his mother and whispered, "Why does she have all of those vegetables??" His mother, turned and looked at my order, looked at me, and then turned back to her son and with a dead-serious voice said, "Because that's what weird people eat." I almost started giggling because it was so odd, but at the same time sad that buying vegetables anymore constitutes "weird behavior."

And now it's time to go start warming up "dinner."

what's REALLY sad is parents teaching their children that difference = weirdness
