Day 16 – The Round 28-Day Diet


Today it’s all about snacks!

SNACKS_ARE_KEYSnacks, snacks and more snacks! I’m going to focus on snacks before anything else. It’s my belief that keeping snacks with you and eating every 2 to 3 hours will keep your body satiated so you don’t chance being without food and then going crazy with hunger. We all know that is, when the little voices in our head trick us into eating in an unhealthy way.

Likely you are happily eating your favorite Round menus, and hopefully you have ventured into your kitchen and are cooking most, if not all of your meals. But snacks, sometimes they are overlooked. You can prepare those ahead of time and get creative — you are the boss

Notice the simplicity of these Round Snacks

A_WALNUTS_YELLOW-RAISINSRound Gorp

Of the ingredients below, choose the nuts, seeds and dried fruit you like the most and mix them together. It does not matter what you choose, they all go together and you can make it different every time. So choose all or just the ones you want. Mix it up!

Ingredients

1 ounce almonds
1 ounce walnuts
1 ounce pecans
1 ounce sunflower seeds
1 ounce soy nuts
1 ounce pine nuts
2 ounces yellow raisins
2 ounces dark raisins
2 ounces dried strawberries
2 ounces dried blueberries (diced)
2 ounces dried mango (diced)
2 ounces dried apricots (diced)

Directions

In a bowl, mix together all the nuts, seeds and dried fruit. Fill small snack containers with 1 to 2 shot glasses of the  Round Gorp. Keep at least one with you at all times for when you are out in the world so you will never be without a snack. And if you live in California like I do, then you carry extra in case of an earthquake.

Frozen Grape Treats

GRAPESIngredients

A big bunch of  red or green grapes

Directions

Wash, separate (from the stem) and dry the grapes. Place in a freezer container and put in the freezer. Let them freeze before eating any, and keep them in the freezer for snacking with later — especially on a hot summer day.

You are what you eat

PEACH_OR_GREASYFRIEDbiggestYour body rebuilds, remakes, renews itself every 7 years. That means that the food you eat now will be the material that your body uses to rebuild itself. So you can eat healthy or unhealthy foods and either build your new body out of the Fresh Round foods Mother Nature wants you to eat like apples, peaches or berries, or you can build your body out of unRound foods like greasy fast French fries or sugary unfood-like Twinkies.

All that is very hard to say in one breath. But this much I know is true, that in 7 years you and I will become what ever we ate along the way. Our new body will be made out of the food we chose to shove down our throats, like the materials in a house or a dress or a car — we are what we put into ourselves…our weakest link is the material we are made out of!

Say Yes to Round foods

B_ROUND_SNACKSThe more you eat Round foods and keep healthy snacks with you, the sooner you can enjoy effortless healthy eating habits and turn your attention to how you will now live your long life.  And you should know that once you cleanse your body of unRound substances, natural foods will suddenly taste extra delicious. For instance, carrots will taste sweet, apples will taste extra juicy, and grapes will taste uber succulent.

Be a Freegan with Recipes

GOOD_EARTH_ECONOMYLike an environmentally green Freegan who forages for free food, you can collect free recipes that use Round foods. You do not need to be a culinary expert to create balanced, delicious, nutritious, body-slimming meals.

As long as a recipe includes ingredients you can eat on the Round Diet or if they grow Round or can be sliced into circles from their natural Round shape, you can eat them on the Round Diet.

It’s super easy to find Freegan recipes. Here are some of my favorite ways I have used over the years.
