My Dear Mudra,
Thank you for sharing your experience with Instinctotherapy. Since I live alone I have been doing that to some degree. I shop for things I love such as fresh dates, raw almond butter, cantaloupe, and some others I can't think of right now, knowing that at some point I will have a desire for these things and they are there. I am not drawn to grains at all except I discovered organic brown rice spaghetti products..I had tried the corn and it tasted awful, was mushy and quite a disappointment..It was my doctor who told me of the brown rice pastas and I thought it would be the same. Before I went on this lifestyle I loved pasta....however it was bad for me who did not exercise then, was fatigued etc and I would immediate fall asleep after any pasta, bread, wheat etc.
So I tried the brown rice pasta, after getting over the shock of the price, and it cooked up beautifully. I simply put a little butter spray to hold the garlic powder and Mediterranean sea salt and voila! a delicious dish to fill me up when I am low on carbohydrates and feel I need them...the first time I had a huge bowl and then sat down to wait for me to fall asleep....I never did! It works differently in the system in that it does metabolize slowly not creating insulin and the benefits of all the vitamins/minerals in brown rice are available for absorption, something not in white wheat pastas.
So, it is something I enjoy when my body is low in carbohydrates as I walk/jog,bike ride a lot now that the weather is so nice. I used to steam some red potatoes but I read they were loaded with sugar and I do get sleepy and I lose the nutrients due to steaming. I believe I get the nutrients from the brown rice pasta and NEVER have fallen asleep again since I have been using it...
Like you, I find I am eating less and more choosy about what I care to eat when I am slightly hungry. I find it such a blessing to have this energy and feeling of life pulsating through me now....I am so grateful to really know the power of food in healing ourselves, along with the urine therapy and distilled water...I enjoyed the video on coconut water very much. I should have said in my last post that I add frozen whole strawberries to coconut milk because I cannot bear to put the delicious fresh strawberries into the milk because they are just so good eating plain! My taste buds are now acclamated to fresh, natural foods and there is no way I could ever go back to cooking because I really get it that most of the nutrition is gone and how did I survive my whole life the way I was eating...well I guess that is what happened in a way because I ended up just surviving because of ignorance and how I was brought up...not to blame my parents but they were brought up the same and that is all they knew.
I must get out for my noon walk now....loved your post and hope you are having a fine day...I am...........
