Dim the house lights...

My 5 followers can relax. I'm back.
I am fixin' to let you all know how I handle cutting DAIRY AND GRAINS for the next 3 weeks.
It hurt me to think about it, and it even hurt me to type it.
In a nutshell, my body is mad at me.
My innards don't feel like they are up to par.
I recently had a full physical and all is well. I'm even "remarkably hydrated with great immunity"!
Who knew?
After chatting with friends that care about their bodies and researching some credible websites, I have a sinking feeling that dairy and (GOD FORBID)/or grains are the culprit.
This brings me to today - DAY 2 of neither DorG. Can I just call it that? You will catch on soon...
How do I feel? Eh. Can't tell yet. No positive or negative effects except for the fact that I CAN'T
STOP thinking about cheese, crackers, or beer. I feel as if these 3 things are the reason for my existence. Obviously, they are not. But the fact that I feel SO deprived is REASON #1 why this is a GOOD thing for me to do. Not attempt... DO!
Reason #2?... well, I just want to feel AWESOME. Not "ok" or "good". So tired of saying that. I'm ready for my body to be all that it can be. I'm strong and active and ready to investigate why I'm just not as awesome as I should be. ;-)
"What have you been eating, Laura?" Good question, Laura! I'll give a little recap:
Eggs, Boar's Head Chicken, veggie salads with bals. vin. and EVOO, Krab, lots of beans, cut up veggies on hand, smoothies made with frozen fruit and almond milk...
I will be more specific with my meals in later posts. I went to the library and found lots of good reads with some great recipes. I can't wait to share my journey with you!
Dreams of feta and hops,

You should probably only cut out one at a time, because if one of them are the culprit, you won't have to give up on the other. Just saying...(and this is THAT melanie...the one you have known since high school=]) Put a follower button on your page. And follow mine. and

My approach is not so much to see how I feel getting away from those foods, but what happens in 3 weeks when I introduce one at a time. Know what I mean? So I am getting them out of my system and THEN I will take notes. :-) I added a "follow via email" widget... did that work? ~L

Yes. And I am looking forward to your results.
