Fast is Over

Well the fast was over on Easter. So what did I eat Easter morning?



I can tell I have a serious sugar addiction. That was what I missed the most by far on the fast. So it's probably a good idea to avoid it from time to time. And altho I did like eating both those things again, they really weren't as good as my brain thought they'd be. Healthy stuff really is much more satisfying.

I've still been making some daniel fast friendly meals as I clear out the fridge this week. Last night I made blackened tofu. Neither of us liked it. The spices were good, but would be better on chicken. For Easter I made this bread and it was awesome. I loved it. I might make it again with a sprinkle of chocolate chips :) but it was really good as it was and low-fat!

I'm not sure if it was the daniel fast, or just other stuff in life going on, but I have been super unmotivated lately. I have been exercising probably 5x a week since I was 15 and I have NOT been able to get out of bed and do it for weeks. So finally this morning I got going. Hopefully I can get back into my habit. I really love exercising and it is a part of me, so I want to be more steady again.

Thanks for the workout this morning Jillian.

Last night, as I was putting away the clean bowls I checked the moth trap, and yes, another moth body was in there. I am about giving up with these moths. My food check last week revealed nothing, I don't know where their secret lair is!?! I'm just giving up and accepting the fact that I must be eating moth eggs. Gross.


  1. YAY for the fast being over!!! And yay for Ripped in 30! I just got the DVD and I'm liking it a lot!

  3. Sorry to hear about your food moths problem, and don't give up on them! Food moths are becoming increasingly common in the home, with people finding tiny moths in their kitchen and wondering what they are all about.

    The Indian Meal Moth (Plodia interpunctella) is sometimes referred to as the Pantry Moth. They are a common grain-feeding pest found around the world, feeding on cereals and similar products. The Mediterranean Food or Flour Moth is larger than the Indian Meal Moth. Although flour is the favourite food, grains, bran and breakfast cereals are also attacked.

    Other signs that may suggest food moth activity are maggots in kitchens or on kitchen walls and ceilings. These maggots are actually the larval stage of kitchen moths.

    Here are some tips on how to get rid of food moths for good:

    1. REMOVE - Remove your food from the affected drawers or cupboards and vacuum really thoroughly paying attention to edges, cracks and crevices inside and out.

    2. CLEAN - Thoroughly clean all surfaces that may be affected and leave to dry. Discard any infested foodstuffs away from your house.

    3. KILL - Spray the affected storage unit to kill any eggs and / or larvae

    4. MONITOR / PREVENT - Place moth traps close to affected areas to monitor for adult moths and to break the breeding cycle

    5. REFRESH - Keep moth traps current and replace every 3 months – with warmer houses food moth damage and infestations are now a year-round problem, and moth prevention is better than cure.
