Awful awful awful day

Monday, June 09, 2014

Well, I just thought I was being so smart! Since I haven't been absorbing my green or really any veggies I figured I would Vitamix them. Blended zucchini, spinach, celery, and carrots and put this into ice cube trays to use them in future protein drinks. Kept out a couple of cups to enjoy right then.

A few hours later I had the absolutely worst cramping and d in the last 9 weeks!! So I guess if my body doesn't or can't absorb these veggies whole, it REALLY can't tolerate them blended. Here I was trying to help my gut!

Live and learn, again....

DH went for some peptobismal. Think I may call gastro-guy today.

Would appreciate some prayers. Don't understand where this came from. I'm much more sympathetic now to those who have gone through gut issues for years. How do you do this??

    Hope things are better by now. Sounds definitely like a visit to a gastro doc is in order.

    I'm sorry the experiment turned out so badly : ((
I can't imagine why the vegetables blended together caused this, if you can tolerate them one by one, really a mystery.
