One week later

The eating challenge of a week ago seems a distant memory, although our eating habits have not instantly returned to previous practices. Normally big consumers of milk, this past week we have noted how our consumption has been less than half its previous norm.

The experience of identifying with those who have so little has brought a definite change in outlook amongst us all, particularly as it relates to food. We have learned that we can do with less; we have identified the reality which is luxury over against necessity. One suspects that our systems were cleared of some aspects of our food consumption which had an addictive component. Our bodies were - in some sense - detoxed.
