This is a two-fer, a post about food and sobriety…
I am on Day 4! I honestly cannot remember the last time I had a Day 4, it’s been months, maybe longer. However that doesn’t really matter. I am here, today, now. In another post I’ll share how I got here, but for now it is enough to let you know I am here. Today.
This post is more about food! Special, beloved house guests just left after a lovely 3 day visit, which makes me sad, but I’m celebrating their stay by eating a breakfast that one of them enjoys most mornings, lentils, eggs, and whatever delicious extras are in the fridge that morning.
So I share with you here my breakfast bowl of warm lentils, golden tomatoes, a hardboiled egg and a bit of pesto. In the United States breakfast has devolved into a carb heavy, sugar ladened, coma inducing disaster of convenience. Around the world, breakfast is more likely a plate of healthy fibre, protein, and fruits or vegetables that energize the consumer to face the work of the day.
I admit the taste, while delicious, was a bit startling to my tastebuds, but I know that my body and mind will celebrate this healthy fueling I’ve provided as my morning progresses.
What did you have for breakfast? Please share your healthy morning ideas so I can add variety to my new routine!
