Today America celebrates her 231st year of Independence! Happy Birthday, America!

This morning I’ll be doing some cleaning and yard work, but the rest of the day will be spent relaxing and celebrating. We’re having some family over, and we’ll all be having burgers on the grill & a few drinks. Later we’ll probably watch a movie and then check out the fireworks. I hope my fellow Americans also have an enjoyable and safe Independence Day!

This past Monday my chicken was not completely defrosted because I forgot to take it out of the freezer in time for lunch. I guess I’m still getting used to my summer meal plan. “No big deal”, I thought. “I’ll just swap this meal for Thursday’s lunch, and have some of that awesome deli-sliced turkey Lisa bought for me!” Wow, my tastes sure have changed over the past six months – I didn’t enjoy the sandwich at all! I tasted unbelievably salty and processed, and when I finished it I felt pretty bloated. I told Lisa to eat the rest of the lunch meat. In fact, I decided that I don’t want sandwiches anymore – not even tuna. I’m also eliminating the pretzels and salads completely. I find that what I’m craving are whole foods and broccoli. You won’t believe this (I sure couldn’t) but last night I actually thought to myself, “You know, cod sounds pretty good right now!” I think Mastover has me brainwashed!

Anyway, I’ve made some changes to my summer meal plan based on my reaction to those foods. There will be no sandwiches, no pretzels and no croutons in my diet. I’m going to eat the foods I enjoy and make me feel good. I have replaced that processed garbage with items such as chicken, seafood and broccoli.
