So it is now Friday night, and I did not forget, I am just only starting to feel human enough again to type. Needless to say, I will not be taking more of that medicine!
So, if you follow me on Instagram, you might have noticed that I started the Whole 30. I would love to tell you that it was great and I was an awesome success, but guess what? I got sick. SICK, SICK, SICK. I could not figure it out. I mean, that was why I stopped drinking coffee! I had eliminated everything: sugar, gluten, dairy, and coffee. And I was getting sicker by the minute.
I was laying in bed (gee, I sound like that is all I do) when it struck me. When I started eliminating all those things I was replacing them with nuts. And when I cut dairy I sent myself over the edge. Almond milk, Paleo granola (which, let's face it, is basically chopped up nuts), cashews, almond butter....
The next morning I, in a very unladylike voice, said, "Screw it! I am getting me a cup of a jo with half and half." I did. And I ate cheese. I ate beautiful Tillamock cheddar and know what? I felt better. I didn't get sick all day. And three days later, no stomach aches, no pains, no issues.
So I am possibly the only person in the world who did not feel better doing the Whole 30. And the idea of actually, also, cutting nuts made me think I might explode.
So there you have it. One week later and I am back on the coffee and swimming in dairy. And, know what? I feel better!
