After receiving a letter from the GP that my poor liver is a rubbish as we thought (thanks #pegasys), it's time for a proper change.
After a bit of research, #keto and #paleo diets both come quite high in sorting stuff like that out. Reading into them, I'm definitely not one that would be able to jump straight into one of those. I have too many habits to break.
So, starting this weekend, I'm starting with the first step and returning to #glutenfree. It's a path that I've spent time on in the past, and felt tremendously better. My old GP thought that I might be gluten sensitive, and, more recently, the rheumatologist suggested the same thing.
I took a step last week that most of my friends would be shocked by, and that's to drink water. I think that very few people have seen me without squash or fizzy. I've always disliked plain water and only drank it off there was nothing else. I can already tell the difference. I had some Pepsi last night, the first soda in several days, and it was a shock to the system. I was actually GLAD to get back to my water bottle. This morning, I added a few fresh lemon slices and it wasn't too bad (having read that it helps kick-start the metabolism). So, wish me luck. I'm going to attempt to regularly share my meals, to encourage me to cook fresh and healthy food, and maybe get others to share with me. I'm aiming to try to not replace stuff like bread with the gluten free alternative, although we bought pasta today just so it's a quick alternative.
Tonight is smoked sausage, onion and mushroom, finished off with carrot and courgette noodles, with dried mixed herbs, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Sophie inhaled hers and really enjoyed it. Emrys saw his and left the room (does that surprise anybody? Sophie is currently making him whinge because she offered him some apple wedges). #glutenfreediet #zoodles #vegetablenoodles #veggienoodles #iwishmykidwouldeat #beigediettoddler #elherdanlossyndrome #essentialthrombocythaemia
