It's Saturday! A quick note about the luo han guo experiment. Recently I bought a blood glucose monitor that came with 10 testing strips. When I tried to buy more of them ... all the pharmacies in the area didn't have any (of this particular brand, CVS). So, I had to special order it. The strips should arrive by Tuesday and I'll commence the experiment then. For those of you who were following that trial ... I apologize for the delay.
I'm thinking about including more white tea in my diet. It's very healthy and may aid in the "fat burning" department too. It could be one of those win-win propositions.
I used to drink a big cup of tea in between meals when I felt hunger pangs. It seemed to help them pass and provided a sort of soothing effect. Drinking water just doesn't provide the same sensation for me.
Oh! I forgot to mention that I went to the farmer's market yesterday. I bought some beautiful tomatoes (orange and red), avocados, jalapenos, blueberries, strawberries and flowers. I hope to make this a part of my weekly routine.
