Today I will drive into Madison to see Tom. He is quite busy with his classwork. (He is working on his certification) SO I will make myself busy at the market buying some fish and raiding his wonderful garden filled with vegetables. I will bring some chutney, pepper sauce and apple filling (to make a pastry). We will have a wonderful dinner once he finishes his studies.
All in all the change in diet is going well. I do feel some need for fish today, the reason I will be buying some fish at the market. My thought is fish has a lower cholesterol content and a better source of protein if I am going to eat meat. Once every couple of weeks should satiate my cravings. Tom certainly eats meat more often than I but he does like and enjoys vegetarian dishes. I would speculate that he is 50/50 when it comes to eating vegetarian. Half his days menus are without meat. My problem is not going without meat so much as eating dairy products regularly. I do need to cut out most of the cheese intake. That I will find the most difficult. Cheese is a food that I crave when I am not eating meat. I need to find my protein choices in other areas. My other problem is eating late. I guess a rule of no eating after 7 would make things more defined. This will be a hard rule to stick to.
