Since February 3rd (I will remember the date the way I remember May 9th, 2004, which is when I quit drinking), I have eaten all whole foods. My chiropractor has given me a great list of different food groups, and told me to cut out gluten. I never really thought about not eating it, but I have several friends who are sensitive/allergic to it. After doing my own research, I found that we don’t really need anything in it, so I cut it out.
Three times I have eaten bread. All three times I have gotten bad stomach cramps, within minutes of eating it. I’ve had two people ask me if I had been tested for it. WHY do I need to be tested??? I was a philosophy scholar in college. I took logic courses. If the same thing happens three times in a row, it’s logical to conclude that it’s just not good for ME. By the way, all those “gluten” foods are so devoid of nutrients, that there’s no point in eating them. So, now I won’t eat bread. I haven’t had pasta since January.
I’ve over-educated myself about food the past few months. I read everything I can get my hands on. I talk to people who follow a diet that may not contain what the GenPop eats. Who cares what I eat? Who cares if I am staying away from gluten? Most doctors don’t even keep up with dietary trends. Some still say eggs are bad for you. What??? Go ahead and stay in your 80s mentality, bro. Eggs are a great food and they don’t raise your cholesterol. Talk about a bad rap!
I sliced up some Roma tomatoes, then drizzled 1/2 tsp olive oil over them, and added salt & pepper. Then, two fried eggs (runny yolks!!!), 1/4 avocado, another 1/2 tsp olive oil (yes, I measured it!), and salt & pepper. This was my dinner last night. 🙂
