Originally, I was going to post this just to tell you how easy it is to put animal/planet-friendly dairy options into your diet (ummm, SO EASY). •
But then this week I had my annual physical.
In reviewing my blood work with my doctor, she went nuts (pun sort of intended). Levels that usually go up over time, went down.
The biggest win---1 1/2 years ago I had blood sugar level that put me on the cusp of being pre-diabetic (carbs? What carbs?) Now? It's at the low end of normal range. A 5 point drop (it's actually measured in tenths but...). Apparently, a change like that is almost unheard of without medication. I mean, really, I don't want to overstate her awe and enthusiasm but she kind of couldn't get over it.
She was impressed and proud.
And very curious.
What did I do over the last 1 1/2 years?
I changed what I put into my body.
Plants, plants and more plants.
It's been an adjustment. I do miss some things (although less and less). But I feel soooo good. Inside and out.
And as my doctor said, "the numbers don't lie." So, dear people, why not try a new milk. A nut milk! My fave is Silk unsweetened almond milk.
Maybe you can knock your doctor off her feet too (and show lots of cows some love in the process). #healthcare #careforyourhealth #vegan #compassion #animallove #actor #actorslife #myinstrument
