It's hot. h-a-w-t. HOTT. BLEH. And humid, too. Even our new car's AC is overwhelmed. I ran to Trader Joe's on my lunch break to buy groceries for the week and I nearly melted into a big puddle of bleccch.
So I finished my 3 week food allergen detox plan. Pretty awesome job, too. I fudged on alcohol twice, and I licked some sour cream off my finger once, but the no caffeine, no artificial sweeteners, no dairy, no gluten, no meat, no sugar thing was an eye opener, for sure. I am continuing no meat and no dairy for environmental reasons, and because it's easy for me to be a pain in the ass to everyone else. I'm staying away from artificial sweetners still, 'cause I've got plenty of little packets of stevia, and agave nectar, and brown rice syrup. They all do just fine. Caffeine is a no brainer, 'cause I sleep so much better without any. Gluten, I'm trying to stick to no more than once source of gluten a day, and then from a multi-grain source. White flour KILLS my stomach, and three weeks without a stomach ache spoiled me.
It was a long week, but I see the light and I'm shuffling towards it. Slowly, you know, 'cause it's HOT.
