Amazing when you can eat everything you never bother to read the food labels isn’t it ?
Now I know that when the boys had their milkallergy I only had to mind a few things as a docter was able to help them with their allergies and all was good so that was easy. Then there’s my friend Mandy has a little boy that is allergic to a lot of stuff and she has to read every single label like a detective. I know from her how hard it is to find things or recipe’s for him that he is able to eat.
But now I have to watch out & read every label for food I come across and boy it takes a lot of work, shopping takes twice, no thrice (LOL) as much time as it does normally.
Let me tell you a little story, you see I’m someone that has had a bad resilience with her health for the last 20 years, always catching the flu or other stuff that germs seem determined to give me, but before that was never ill, i mean almost never as I’ve had like one typical childhood ilness. And this year I’ve decided (for a lot of things in my life but this is step 1 since i couldn’t get it right last year) that enough is enough, I want to survive Fall and winter on my terms and not those of the germs.
So a war has been launched and with the help of a special docter, a very good docter, same one as my boys have seen and various people I have recommended him to or I meet quite by accident that know about him; Dr. Soema.
Dr. Soema figured out quite a bit about my energy levels, intestins and liver that were not good, stuff living there, thriving of food that not only I love. So i’m on a very strict diet for 30 days, lot’s of natural herbs to make the intestins and liver stronger and cleaner and antibiotics.
So I’m off sugar, milk, cheese, cacoa, yeast, glucosepaste, tomato’s, pig, veal and cows meat, pepper, goatsmilk or cheese, mushrooms and let me tell you once you start looking out for these ingredients it’s everywhere … yes also in cupcakes 😦 so I ordered myself the babycakes vegan cookbook so I can make some nice cupcakes as dessert for a dinnerdate at the end of this month. And try thinking up a nice dinner besides the standerd meat, potatoes & veggies ? Only thing I can come up with is a healthy version of nasi goreng and fajitas (but no sour creme or tomato saus to go with it but a cheesy soy spread) with corn chips. If anyone has any recipes plse let me know, I’m craving changes in the menu !!
An upside, well the first week I didn’t think there was one because i was in detox (kicking a sugar habit is not the easiest) but there is one is I’m loosing weight, finally 2 years after the knee-accident I’m losing weight. 2 down, at least 5 to go ….. And I should have buckets of energy at the end of this, this is what keeps me going, more energy, less feeling blah, less catching the flu and overall a better healthier me !
Something to consider, cutting out certain products I “though” were healthy from my lifestyle after the 30 days.
