Feeling Off

Just randomly saying hey here because I don’t know if it’s really relative to be telling, or should I say, boring anyone else about my digestive woes. I could call my mom and describe how I feel like I have a blob of butter or something stuck in my stomach and how GD bloated I feel, to the point where it’s making me anxious and I’m practically inhaling an entire bar of non-GMO, g.luten free, vegan chocolate bar…I’m looking at you Theo Chocolate 😉 And I’m also very inspired by #girlbosses like Laura Lea of Laura Lea Balanced and Amie Valpone of The Healthy Apple, who vulnerably share their story and health journeys to the world.

Getting to the point of bloatation here, back up to Monday, I went over to my high school friend Liz’s house, along with a few other high school friends, to have dinner. Liz generously ordered Zoe’s Kitchen. Our take out Mediterranean dinner included chicken and salmon kabobs, orzo, white beans, and a classic Greek salad with allll the Feta 🙂 So I had like one and half plates of this delicious “fast” Mediterranean food, followed by ice cream from the local Gelati Celesti. It was a pretty good portion of ice cream for someone like me who avoids ice cream at all costs, because if I indulge, I will feel sick pretty much in minutes after ingesting said ice cream. Not fun.

This is a different bloating feeling though. I’m still chalking it up to the ice cream, but maybe too it’s some nut butters I O.D.ed on last weekend.

So yeah, I feel so blah. Just off. The more and more I read about all this gluten, dairy free stuff, even grain free, I think I might be the perfect candidate to see for myself and maybe be another foodie “success story”.

I know it will take a lot of work, time, and patience, but I’m willing to put in the work. Lots of trial and error will go down to see what works and what doesn’t work for my body.

Ok, that’s my rant for the night. But really ya’ll, I’m inspired by all the bloggers, foodies, makers, nutritionists, out there, so I’m jumpin’ back on the blog wagon and seeing what difference I can make in this world! (written with sarcasm, but not really/really).

K. {side note: I cannot stand when people text “K”. what is that supposed to mean??? elaborate please!!} Until next time!

Xo,

Ellen
