Playing with patterns with paint, stamps, sprays, I found myself thinking about patterns in my life. Daily habits– good and bad– have been food for thought. To that end, I just read the people of Papua New Guinea have perfect, flawless skin. The cause? Lack of white starch & sugar in their diet: white sugar, potatoes, white rice, white pasta, white bread. They eat proteins, veggies, fruits. So I started thinking I would break my normal food patterns and see if I could change my skin tone too, taking out the white stuff.
One day in, I’m shocked: I don’t know what to eat! No cereal, no crackers, no twizzlers, and (*GASP*!) NO potato chips!? How will I survive?!
Day 1, I had yogurt & nuts for breakfast and was hungry in 90 minutes. Lunch was a chicken wrap– I made it two hours after that and caved to corn chips (they aren’t potatoes!). Then I completely fell apart at dinner: pizza. How can I pass up pizza.
Breaking the pattern Day 2: yogurt & nuts, apple & peanut butter, more coffee. I’ve made it to 10:30 a.m. Any suggestions on what to eat the rest of the day? Most importantly, what can I substitute for potato chips??
