Experiments in eating & no dairy
Thursday, February 07, 2013
I've been eating pretty well for quite awhile, although sometimes a bit too much junk food. Decided to try going without wheat to see if it would make any difference. I haven't noticed a difference really, but I eat more vegetables and fruit without wheat products so I'll probably continue. I'm trying to eat more natural things and avoid processed food as much as possible. I ran across another Spark user who was avoiding dairy due to increased heartrate plus some joint stiffness and swelling. Its like a lightbulb when on for me too. I decided to avoid dairy for awhile and see if it makes any difference. Just started Tuesday night, Feb. 5, 2013. Got some Almond Milk for my coffee. Unfortunately, all the store had was vanilla, so I got that. Yuck! Way too sweet as I was just using plain milk before. Picked up regular almond milk, and I can survive until I can get some unsweetened. The regular isn't bad, but still a little sweet.
So what can you classify my eating as? I guess I'd have to go with omnivore. I'm not really Paleo, not low carb, not really anything specific. I eat meat, vegetables and fruit, and occasionally potatoes or sweet potatoes and a Clif Bar or Lara Bar. So I guess, mainly, just overall healthy. The only grains I've been getttng are from my Clif Bars, which are my breakfast at work. I'll probably change that when I run out. Maybe some egg cups or something?
