Another challenging day. I ended up at the store this afternoon to pick up sweet potatoes, avocado, and a few other things for dinner. I had a chicken taco salad in greens with brown rice and vegetables, Brian and Freya had chicken tacos in wheat tortillas with cheese. Not easy cruising the cart past the cupcakes and yogurt and crackers. But not that hard, either.
Freya was home today and yesterday with a cold. Yesterday she had a fever and had to be convinced to let me put the thermometer in her mouth. She’s been having a rough time of it, which could explain her bratty behavior tonight. Most likely she’ll be back at school tomorrow and in better spirits.
Each day on this diet I feel a little better. It’s hard to put into words. But I do wonder — if switching to this way of eating has even affected the way my hair feels, of all things, what does that mean that sugar/flour/dairy have been doing to my insides all these years??
