There’s good news and bad news. The good news is Bernard ate our simple salad (made up of tomatoes, cucumber, lettuce, and oranges). I think he loved the olive oil-lemon dressing I had made. It’s a huge accomplishment for him because he doesn’t eat anything that is called or resembles a vegetable (or even fruit).
The bad news is we weren’t able to let go of the rice. I couldn’t think straight. He ended up cheating by eating loaves of bread. Rather than feel extremely bad, we had to give in.
BUT we learned our lesson: right now, we couldn’t live without eating any forms of carb or grain. We just have to get it from somewhere else. I have completely forgotten about protein as well, which also helps curb hunger.
Tomorrow is second day, and we intend to do better.
