For the past few weeks I’ve eaten all whole foods and cooked all my meals. The closest thing I get to “processed” foods is the occasional popcorn. It’s a lot of work. Going to the store more often because what I eat is perishable, I can’t just pop in a microwave meal, since I’m not a huge fan of “fake” meat I usually won’t eat veggie burgers (unless I am eating out, which I usually don’t), having to figure out what I’m going to eat every meal. Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook and to bake. And I love food. So it doesn’t bother me that it takes work. But it takes a lot of effort and planning.
I’m learning about figuring out meal plans for the week (which will help me) and new exciting recipes to cook. I never knew how many things can be done with sweet potatoes. This will definitely help me when I am living on my own and having a family.
But, ever since I haven’t eaten processed foods, dairy products, and kept things whole and natural, I feel amazing. My migraines that I usually have, has almost completely disappeared. My stomach problems completely disappeared. I usually have to take tums every day, now I don’t have to.
