Mean Bean Challenge - Day 5

Friday was the final day of the Mean Bean Challenge. As I ate my final plate of rice and beans I reflected back on the week. It has been a real challenge and it has helped me to have an insight into what life must be like for those who survive on a small diet. Rather than feeling excited about being able to eat anything on Saturday I am overwhelmed by the choice, the variety and the last thing I want to do is stuff my face. It will be a gradual build up, re introducing food. But this morning I ate a smaller portion of my usual breakfast at a slower pace. I am grateful, I am blessed and I am looking forward to eating fruit, salad, vegetables and anything but beans for a while!
