You know you’re healthy when…your spice cabinet is fuller than your medicine cabinet ūüėČ

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!
