Balance Over Time

Any given day of eating can look out of balance or not so healthy if you look just at what was eaten in that 24 hour period. It’s the balance over time that makes the difference. Sunday we had an alumni gathering with potluck snacks, and my Meal 2 eating was scattered over an afternoon. I found myself hungry and craving after that, and ate considerably more than I usually would in one day. Back on track Monday, and my body finds it’s own balance – I just wasn’t as hungry, and didn’t really want anything other than protein, vegetables, fruit, and nuts. I am grateful that if I listen to my own body, balance returns.
