I have just chalked up a year with my Thermomix! Yay! (er.... OUR Thermomix)
I thought I would share with you, some of the changes the Thermomix has made in my life.
Firstly and foremost... It has started to get chilly here in Adelaide, and I haven't had my warmer clothes out for the last 6-8 months (LOVE the weather here in Adelaide). I went to put on the clothes with my usual trepidation, plus some more. After all, I have the body type that puts on about 4-5 kilos a year just by eating normally.
This last year I have had LOTS of fresh, hot bread - slathered with butter (I used to avoid that!), cakes, scones, speciality dishes like rich indian food or stews, deserts (which USED to be a tub of icecream [I might point out that this was NOT eaten in one sitting - bought one tub a week LOL] but are now things like home made icecream, sorbet, cakes, puddings, custards etc)
My clothes? They fitted! Now I'm the first to say I would love them to be a smaller size... but this is the first year in 30 years that I haven't had to either buy new clothes or go on a diet!! Imagine what I could do if I TRIED to go on a diet!
Why didn't I put on weight, despite all the things I was eating?? Well, 2 things come to mind,
1- I guess that good, natural food is easier to process for the body, and
2 - what the hell was in all that processed, food, that I USED to eat!!!??? Those breads that stayed fresh for up to a week.... the "convenience" packets of meal bases.... the tins/packets of soup???
