Hey ya’ll! So to give you an update on how I was feeling last week, I am SO MUCH better this week! I’ve strayed from gluten, dairy, soy, lecithin, and some other oils that are often found in allll the GF chips I like to munch on. The only exception has actually been today, when I have just had three mini Reese’s PB cups. I had a craving for chocolate and did not prepare to bring my own chocolate to work, so in comes the Reese’s.
I’ve been more in tune with my body this week. Really listening to fullness cues and hunger cues, and appreciating when I feel full. I’ve been really nourishing my body and not just feeding it with crappy processed snacks.
See, I’m a full time nanny, and very often snack on their snacks. Not in huge amounts, but I think over time, these processed foods just build up in my system, and finally, the bubble bursts, in the form of an outbreak on my skin, or in extreme bloating.
I’ve always had digestive issues since birth, so it’s not a surprise that every now and then, I have some sort of wake up call that tells me to slow down and re-assess my diet.
In a world where there are TONS of gluten/dairy/soy/nut/oil free humans out there, it has become easier to learn how to live with these limitations or should I say thrive?
It will take work and preparation, but I’m willing to do the work and prepare all the home-cooked meals that I can.
So that’s where I’m at right now. I’ll be sharing more foods, brands, and recipes that I like that are of course gluten/dairy/soy freeee! So stay tuned!
