Day #10: TRU 21-day detox/weight loss program

There are only two mistakes one can make along the road to truth; not going all the way, and not starting.  ~ Buddha

OK, so if you are counting, YES, I missed Day #9.  What happened, you wonder?  Having started down the road to truth, I got a little distracted - the activities of the day overtook me!  I emptied my refrigerator of all the odds and ends of the week, and sliced and diced whatever I could (bell peppers, celery, etc. etc.)  Then I drew up a quick recipe plan for the week, made my shopping list, and went to Whole Foods - after which I came home, unpacked the groceries and did NOT cook (for reasons I won't go into) - and did not wrap up my day until well past my regular bedtime - which has me scrambling a bit now for meals.
However, this week's aspirations are:
Island Butternut Squash Soup
Carrot and Beet Salad
Yams and Steamed Broccoli
Salmon and Wild Rice
and lots of protein shakes, veggies and fruit.  I'll share recipes as the week progresses.

It's getting easier and easier to trust that I won't go hungry, even as a temporary non-lacto non-ovo vegetarian (if there is such a thing) - that I will find food when I need it (and NOT at a drive-thru window!) - and that I will be, quite simply,  happy.
Who could ask for more?
