The most ordinary things can bring the unexpected. Such as taking my Brother-in-Law to the annual week-end gathering at Norris Lake in Tennessee. He hitched a ride at the half way point for me, Louisville, en-route to eastern TN.
He supplied the entertainment, an envelope of CD's he had received from New Dimensions. Thought provoking interviews conducted for broadcast over the airwaves, akin to NRP.
I thoroughly enjoyed most the CD's but by far the most interesting was Dr. Elson M. Haas. He took approximately one hour to convince me to consider his "New" Detox diet.
I considered it all week. And I decided to do it! I figured Friday or Saturday would be the best time of the week for life altering changes.
If I was going to totally change my eating habits, saying good-bye to alcohol, caffeine, sugar etc. etc. etc, then I really needed to give them a Grand Send Off.
What a week!! First I had to list all my favorite stuff and them stuff them into me.
Donuts from the terrific bakery that is a hole in the wall in New Haven.
A lunch at the Chinese Buffet in Auburn.
A Blizzard from DQ.
McDonalds. The McGriddles.......yum. And double cheeseburger.
Burger King...Whopper and Onion Rings.
Lot's of Coconut Rum.
My unbelievably delicious dish of chicken and squash cooked in a wok and smothered in Swiss Cheese and fresh tomatoes.
Frozen Custard...Chocolate mint with M&M's.
A cinnamon crisp from Panera's.
Oh, a mixed berry muffin from Panera's.
That's about it.
Now I am detoxing and well into day two. Not too bad at all. It is a pretty radical program and I am surprised that I am not hungry at all.
Should I be? Gosh!!!
