Feeling pretty healthy, probably mostly due to no alcohol though! And eating really well – superfood bread this morning with 1/2 avocado and 2 boiled eggs.
Have to say that I have a bit of the runs today, as we were warned about by Shann at Chuckling Goat…otherwise I haven’t noticed any differences. But I’ve been reading about all the vitamins and minerals that I’m getting so I feel quite smug!
My auntie used to tell us when we were little about the little men who lived in our stomachs. They all have shovels and are busy moving the food to where it needs to go all day. Some things are really hard to move – rubbish foods like crisps and chocolate (or eating too much) slow them right down and that’s why you get a tummy ache or feel tired. This explanation seemed to make perfect sense to me and I believed in those little men until I was in high school and learned a bit more about biology! So the idea of ‘the Whos in Whosville‘ that Shann uses to explain the microbiome in the gut just makes even more sense. Instead of ‘raining death’ down on my little men (and women) with shit like booze and processed carbs, I’m going to try very hard to give them things that make them leap for joy, like avocados, oats and the gorgeous local heather honey I got last week (not with the kefir, of course, as they cancel each other out).
It also makes me wonder what would be the best food for puppydogs, as I often thought about a homemade diet for my girl, but was too scared to change her diet too much when she was old. Fish, meat, carrots, grains, a bit of oil, glucosamine. Not that there will be another one anytime soon.
