This morning as I ate the same breakfast I have eaten for the past almost month straight, I found myself gagging a little on my avocado. Not because it was not tasty or anything was wrong with it, but simply because I have been eating ½ an avocado a day for a month and I had about burned myself out on them. This got me thinking about my current food obsessions. This past week, Adam and I made an unscheduled, drop everything and leave the house in the middle of the night due to a family matter trip. As it’s pretty difficult to eat out at most restaurants living a paleo lifestyle, I stopped at the store to pick up the things I would need to survive the next 4 days. I looked down at checkout and there they were…the food that I have been eating over and over again.

A few of my favorite things
A few of my favorite things
  • Fuji Apples
  • Crunchy Almond Butter
  • Local, Raw Honey
  • Sugar Snap Peas
  • Carrots
  • Avocados
  • Blueberries
  • Watermelon
  • Fresh Mint
  • Almonds
  • Pepperoni
  • Eggs
  • Coffee

If you told me I could only have these foods for the rest of my life, I would ask that maybe I have some chicken or fish to add in there and I’d need salt, pepper, lemons and coconut oil but otherwise I’d be fine with it. I could totally live with only these things.

Do you do this with food, am I the only lame-o who is so boring with food choices?

Speaking of this trip, I came home to realize how important it is that Adam waters our garden every night. As he still is away until tomorrow and I have not really gone out there since I came home Sunday, I noticed today when I went out to cut mint that everything is wilting in the Texas heat. I’m hoping that with a good watering tonight and then being back to a normal schedule tomorrow will revive them, but I feel horrible that I didn’t notice for two days. Will everything bounce back?
