Two days after my coverage ended, I started getting this stabbing pain in my back, above my kidney on the left. I could barely breathe, and I had no idea what was going on. It came and went, and after a while, I realized it was after eating. Long story short (and a lot of WebMDing, friend chatting goes into the long story) I determined that it must be gallstones. I have been eating poorly since I got so busy.
Anyway, this has been my gentle shove back to eating well. I went to the co-op next door and bought the following:
- Butter Lettuce (it's so pretty!!!)
- Gala apples
- Organic grape juice (on sale for $2.69—you can't beat that when it's usually like $5!)
- Walleye fillet
I broiled the walleye with a little olive oil and lemon and made a delicious salad with a watercress dressing made by pulsing olive oil, lemon, vinegar, and mustard then adding the cress and pulsing again. I even chopped up half an apple on the salad and it was really good.
If anyone else has healthy eating/living/attitude stories to share, please feel free to comment!
p.s. My insurance should come through soon, but I may skip the doctor if this new diet helps!
