You know you’re healthy when…your spice cabinet is fuller than your medicine cabinet 😉
Six years ago, I owned exactly 4 spices: onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper. I didn’t know how to cook a thing from scratch. I was living on Lean Cuisine Meals, Slim Fast bars, diet soda and sugar-free chewing gum. If I “cooked,” it was things like Hamburger Helper or noodles with Velveeta melted on them. Oh, and some canned corn or green beans.
It honestly never occured to me that what I was putting in my mouth could’ve been contributing to my Fibromyalgia suffering, and my medicine cabinet was loaded with over-the-counter and prescription medications. I took many pills each day and tried all different kinds, but nothing really helped.
What did help me was reducing/eliminating the following things from my life: processed foods, medications, fragrances and chemicals (e.g, perfumes, hair spray, air fresheners).
Now I feel GREAT!
Do I ever get sick of cooking everything at home from scratch? You bettcha! Do I get bummed out about the constantly overflowing pile of dishes in my sink (and, who am I kidding….on the stove and counter, too!)?? Absolutely!!!
But I wouldn’t trade it for the world!! I feel better than I ever have in my life; I have no more Fibro symptoms; and I wouldn’t trade it for anything!
