I was feeling so entirely crummy. I was just dragging myself around. I was so blue. I couldn’t get my mojo going. And then I started to feel remarkably better. I could hop out of bed some of my customary peppiness! I could do smart things like start the morning with a big glass of lemon water. I could bother to do my skin care regimen at night. I started cooking nutritious meals, and getting some spring in my step again.
So I reviewed my food journal and my calendar to see if I could trace the source of the crumminess.
And you know, it was all because of sugar.
A half a dozen tiny Halloween candies at night over a period of a few nights. A cookie here and there. A sugary cocktail.
Blech! Grrrrr! And other cartoon noises! I am not super hyper-vigilant about sugar intake; I get plenty of it through ketchup and a teaspoon of jam now and then, or a shot of cider, or fruit. But I really, really cannot tolerate refined sugar and especially not in the form of chemicalicious mass produced candy. So: lesson learned.
Hey, are any of you eating fermented foods to aid in health and digestion? I’m going to blog on that soon. Until then, make mine Stevia.
