Reboot Newbies

Posted by Vona37ish on 2 years ago

I was trying to figure out where life goes after a reboot. I've read that people's taste buds change and they actually continue on with the juicing once or twice a day and then plant based recipes...I've never been much of a veggie eater before this honestly. I know I can go to Pinterest or Google and get some great recipes for veggie dishes, however, I want word of mouth ideas :) Y'all have been amazing so far, and I know this will not be any different! Also, do you completely stop with the red meat and dairy? or is that something you do as a treat? Any help or advice is very welcome :D

    The taste buds do change. That is a fact. You just spent all this time reprogramming them to veggies. Before the Reboot, I could not stand hummus. Now I like it. My son figured out that I cannot stand high sugary foods. They are overpoweringly sweet. Things like Hershey's Special Dark is just too sweet. I can now eat bitter chocolate in the 90% or 100% range. Don't recommend that. I learned about cacoa nibs. Much better for me, same benefits, no sugar. Getting back to the source. I used to love Jif Peanut Butter. Again, too sweet because of the added sugar. I still crave the more natural flavors. As far as foods go, I wanted veggie dishes mostly and I still juiced a meal a day. The problem was I let my guard down when I got stressed and fell back into bad habits. The InstantPot community has a lot of great recipes for veggies dishes. In addition, I am looking at Rip Esseltyn's books for whole food recipes. The main thing is IF you go out to eat, your eyes will be drawn to the salad section and the soup sections looking for the veggies. You will want the energy and clarity of the Reboot.

    Yeah, I know what you mean about letting your guard down, I've done that since day one a little here and there, but I have to ease into this, it's taking a toll on my mental state.

    Do you still eat meals with red meat Rick? Or do you tend to stick with vegetarian dishes? If so, do you still eat cheese?

    I did eat meals with red meat and cheese. That said, My surprise is that I wanted those portions A LOT smaller than pre-Reboot. In fact, my wife complained that I was ignoring restaurants she wanted because they lacked veggie dishes. My son is now asking to pack salads for his lunch. His point is that he does not want cheese on his salads "because it ruins a good salad". The young man is starting to learn good habits.

    One of the local restaurants offers a veggie wrap that I like. You can get it with a spinach, wheat, flour or tomato basil wrap. I tend to the tomato basil wrap. The bad part is that it also comes with Italian dressing. I tend to get rid of the dressing because of the oil. My side is normally a soup. Counter that with when I was eating with family and we went for pizza: Double cheese, spinach, extra ham, onions, bell peppers. Not a great choice on my part.

    Now you see how gained back weight. When I transitioned this time into the Reboot, I was going much more veggie and very little meat. My energy levels Day 8 of the Reboot are now flying high. I had no headache, no foggy brain, no joint ache. Please learn from my mistakes and my successes. Here's learning together!

    Thanks so much for the advice :) Hubby wants to juice with me, so I think starting Saturday we'll do a breakfast juice(some fruit), then lunch juice (Joe's Mean Green) then the afternoon snack which is 3pm we'll have a healthy meal, then dinner at 7pm will be Joe's Mean Green juice that way the food is not laying on our bellies when we go to sleep.
