Muffin wrapper

Fudge-y bits, crumbly bits, and all the bits the muffin paper surface will release only with a careful scrape of a knife, were gathered. A careful scrape is in order because tearing that paper would compromise the heft of the fudg-y bits, all pushed together into a small bite on the edge of the knife. This bite was my pre-fast (therapeutic fasting around chemo) treat last week. I haven’t eaten any refined sugar for 6 weeks. Cancer cells love sugar and frankly I haven’t craved it much. However, that bite of Grand Central Bakery’s Chocolate Wheat Muffin goodness, eaten after the bulk of the muffin, one of my all time favorite treats, was devoured by two nine-year-olds, was the best thing I’ve eaten in ages. And it felt like a whole piece of cake! And it sent me into my 3.5 day fast with a smile on my face.

    Thanks so much for your willingness to share about your cancer journey and your positive approach to exploring healing foods. I will share what I can with a friend who is newly diagnosed. I will keep you and your “boys” in my thoughts as I look forward to reading your posts!

  • 3.5 days!! Wow. I hope that fasting really helps the chemo and thus is worth it. And I didn’t know about Grand Central’s choc wheat muffins … thanks for the tip!

      Yes, the fasting is helping a lot. It minimizes side effects and stresses the cancer cells and more. And yes, go get one of those muffins. They’re a seasonal speciality so don’t wait!:)
