Yesterday I had just a simple salad for dinner with lettuce freshly picked and cleaned from my little garden. Adding just a few cucumbers and tomatoes from the local organic farm was a perfect blend when topped with balsamic and olive oil. With no other foods besides this salad it became the main course and because my focus was on just this simple salad it brought forth flavors I didn’t even know existed. I ate just a little bit more than I normally do and felt no guilt at all.
This probably the perfect summer time dinner as I am usually not very hungry around dinner time. During the course of the day I had my fill of a good amount of proteins and carbohydrates and this salad was the perfect way to end a summer day. Those beautiful leaves of lettuce that I care for each day were crisp and light and made me feel as if I were a part of the very nature I live in.
Today I feel so guilty for not working out and I feel as if my body is crying out for exercise. My problems with my gut has seem to have gone away since I stopped eating eggs, but I am still being careful until I can get in to see my doctor. Just as a measure I started eating yogurt twice a day although I know that it is laden with sugar. It seems to be working as my blood sugar numbers have been staying low. I have been reading up on the subject of Prebiotics and Probiotics and putting together a plan of attack.
I so remember when I was younger older folks complaining about these same issues and now here I am a new member of the older folks. LOL But I am not the one who will simply decide to start taking a pill. I am the one who will figure out how to adjust my diet to repair my gut bacteria and return to a healthy state.
