Today I've been milk-free again. It was a bit harder because there is some back in my fridge again, but I figure after 3 or 4 days, I should be fine with that. Funny though, I went toward the fridge to get some water, and explained to my son what I was doing, "I'm just getting a glass of milk". Mentally I had to stop myself, no, not milk, water. Kind of funny. I don't think I would have grabbed the milk, but it's funny that my subconscious came out like that. Another few days and that will be gone.
Tonight was also tempting on other fronts, everyone else wanted pudding. So I made some with soymilk, and then proceeded to fight off the temptation any way I could. My type O son was a good example, I got out a pomegranate that I'd sectioned and put it next to the pudding, then asked him which one he wants. He chose the pomegranate. That's his newest food discovery, and after watching me eat them, and feeding me the seeds he pulls out, he finally decided to give them a good try. He eats the whole seed just like I do, and almost as fast. So, I opted for pomegranate myself the first go round of pudding. The second took bigger measures, so I fried some bananas in ghee, nutmeg, cloves, coriander and cardamom. That was good, and definitely did the job, now I feel warm and healthy, whereas if I'd eaten the pudding I'd feel empty.
