It's been awhile since I've posted anything about whole foods or organics or doing nice things for my body, so I figured today was a great day: I'm de-toxing.
It's not about de-toxing from drugs. It's about de-toxing from crappy food.
I'm in the middle of what is affectionately known as "hell week" for the musical I'm directing, and I've been eating out. A lot.
Anyway, today I woke up sick. My intenstines were spasming (I have an allergy to MSG that when combined with stress = pain). I feel groggy. I have a headache. I'm slightly nauseous. My eyeballs hurt.
So I figured today I'd better get my system back in gear with some whole, organic, and absolutely NOT processed foods.
1.5 cups Tension Tamer Tea
1 medium banana
Amy's Organics Southwestern Vegetable Medley
Two slices whole wheat bread (Nature's Own, one of the only breads out there that doesn't include high fructose corn syrup) with scant organic butter
Not sure yet what dinner will be, but it's going to be something good.
The thing about eating good food and knowing how I'm SUPPOSED to feel and the energy level I'm SUPPOSED to have leaves me with very little tolerance for anything less. Gross food in moderation is sometimes necessary when you're insanely busy, but this weekend was overkill, even when I made the "right choices" at both restaurants - most places add MSG or "yeast extract" (which is MSG in disguise), and it's tough to get away from high fructose corn syrup in the quick food world. Both are bad for everyone, make bodies feel toxic, and simply shouldn't be in our food supply - but that's a rant for another time.
