There are years of blog posts on this site that fondly mention my love of over-curded poutine, the constant addiction to Big Macs, a meaningful affair with anything deep fried, and nightly Fat Girl Platters.
But with Mike's influence, as a healthy eater and someone who cooks (yes, both of those things are insane), I've added new words to my food vocabulary. Kale. Quinoa. Chickpeas. Turkey bacon. And the worst one - Vegetables. I was always certain it was a foreign word for "evil mouth poison", but apparently I was wrong.
So now that I have some healthier things to balance out my deep fried needs, I start thinking more and more about how what we eat affects us. I've had misdiagnosed stomach issues for about a bajillion years now, and it causes me to analyze every bite: "Will this make me sick? Ooh, how about this?" And I never have the right answer.
Armed with the knowledge that Miss Saturated Fats (me) can, albeit begrudgingly at times, welcome vegetables and superfoods into her diet, I wonder about other changes that may finally cure the stomach problems that have plagued me forever.
People are going gluten free, lactose free, sugar free, etc. all over the place - have you? What steps did you take, and how could the process be made easier? And how do you feel now?
I may or may not be willing to subract some things from my diet. If you know me, that's kinda huge (Big Mac sized, even.).
But for the sake of functionality... not coffee. Never coffee.
