Food Experiment Update - War Declared on Cheese and Bagels
By Bekah Lee on August 25, 2011
I’m still plowing through my two weeks of no processed foods and figured that now is as good a time as any to give you an update.
I had some organic swiss cheese on Monday and promptly felt sick. I’ve had this cheese before. I’ve loved this cheese before. And now it hates me. Maybe the cheese heard I was cheating on it with vegetables?
I had half a bagel yesterday and promptly felt…hmmm…how do I put this in a delicate and lady-like way….like a fart factory for the rest of the day.
That was nowhere near lady-like, but neither were the sounds coming from my small intestines. Apparently bagels hate me now too.
Is this a curse of turning 30-ish? Food groups start to hate you? Why couldn’t brussel sprouts starting hating me so we could at least have a balanced relationship based on mutual disgust? Why did it have to be bagels?
The world may never know, but I’ve decided that maybe I should avoid those foods in the future if I don’t want to be pukey, gassy and cranky.
My husband has never been more attracted to me than he is at this very moment. He is such a lucky man.
I have been doing quite a bit of reading on the Paleo Diet since a handful of people in my Crossfit gym follow this "diet." They don't like to call it a diet because they consider Paleo and Crossfit to go hand-in-hand with a lifestyle change.
Monday morning my Crossfit gym is starting a 30 Day Paleo challenge and I am going to join in the fun. The grain-free/dairy-free/sugar-free fun. So far this doesn't sound like too much fun, but they do still let you drink tequila in moderation so it can't be all bad.
