The Pursuit of Healthiness…


As you may recall…I have changed my eating habits over the past year…I’ve eliminated wheat and sugar…limited other starchy veggies…and…I’ve felt better…I have no regrets…it’s not a…diet…it’s how I intend to live from now on…

I also increased good protein sources…including Omega rich eggs…and…plain Greek Yogurt…making a conscious effort to eat more of them…

It took me at least six months to learn to like the yogurt…but I knew the protein and the probiotics were worth the effort…I persevered…I was really kind of proud of myself…

Until…

Yesterday…I went to the doctor for results of food sensitivity testing…I…STRONGLY…tested positive to both eggs and all forms of dairy…even goat’s milk…

So…while…it has been good for me that I cut the wheat and sugar…I’ve been eating more of other things that aren’t good for me…in the process…

I must admit…it’s frustrating…now…that I look forward to my morning omelet…and my nighttime yogurt…it’s time to figure out something else to eat…

I do get to eat…right…

Bertha…laughs…of course I get to eat…and…as I continue to change my eating habits…to foods that truly support me…my health will continue to improve…I will find new foods that I love…all will be well…

She did say…it reminds her of my life…of course…I should have seen that coming…I’m having a dietary crisis…and she’s giving me a life lesson…but…I digress…

Anyway…she says it reminds her…of the time…I got out of that bad relationship…only to replace it with one…that like the yogurt…really wasn’t better for me in the long run…it just seemed like a good idea at the time…

Hmmm…I can see the correlation…

Now…she’s laughing and saying that I should find a doctor…who can do tests for…relationship sensitivities…

I think I’ll feed her some…yogurt…that should shut her up…

  1. Bummer on the egg and yogurt testing…I eat a lot of eggs and so far they like me.

    Isn’t it wonderful to have a means of knowing what to eat and not to eat without so much trial and error.

    Keep moving forward Jane, it is so worth it all…just ask Bertha …I bet she actually sneaks in all those good things when your not watching. :)

    • I couldn’t agree more, Bea…and oh yes…celery…and I love celery! It is going to be challenging to find a new way to eat…again…but I’m determined to do it…and you’re right…Bertha is always steering me towards the healthy choices! I do love that I now know exactly what is going on and have a plan for what to do for it. Onward!!!!

    • Christy…I did the same thing…it took me almost a year to learn to love it…and now…I can’t have it anymore! :( Oh well…I have a couple of cartons if you wanna come get them. 😉
