I didn't make it a full month as a vegeterian.   Now for the excuse...When you have such a limited diet, taking out something that I didn't need to take out just seemed tedious.

I haven't gotten the results back from the allergy test, but I am pretty sure this is it.

I did find a wonderful snack that I am excited to is glutten free, dairy free, soy free, non gmo and vegan friendly.
Now, I can't say that this is a decadent treat. But it hits the spot and I haven't gotten hungry 10 minutes after eating,

I have to say my perspective is better now that I have somewhat figured things out...I honestly can't wait to get the results back so that I can stop being so obsessed with food and move on to my new diet being normal.

It's Almost Over

Well I am approaching the end of the month being meat free. 
I have to say overall it was not a problem for me.  I really don't eat meat that much.  This month has been a learning adventure into eating and my health.  I have found that food deeply affects my body and how I feel.  I will be getting blood tests for food allergies next (when I actually have time to).  So in light of the fact that I have a lot of food that bothers me, meat is something I am not willing to give up.  But from here on out I will be ordering only organic, free range, antibiotic and local meat.  It will be a bit more pricey but I think for me it is worth it. 

I have to say that I am ready to eat meat again.

I love snowy sundays.  I love looking out and seeing the wonderful white snow.  I love hearing the sound of a snow shovel scraping the sidewalk. 
Today I will be catching up on our book club pick as  I am a bit behind.  So far I find it interesting learning about other beliefs and faiths.  It convicts me that I don't know enough about other people and reminds me that I am sure of my faith more than ever.  I am saddened that so many people give and have the wrong idea  about Christ Followers.  It is such a freeing religion, not filled with mysticism but love and grace in the midst of failure.
This book is very interesting and I am only about 50 pages in.  I can't wait for my book club to discuss so we can share our thoughts.

I thought I would fill you in on my latest about the whole wheat free thing.  My results are NEGATIVE, so I do not have celiac disease.  My next step is to get tested for food allergies.  However I am not researching those and I really think that I might have a food intolerance not an allergy.  From what I understand eating too much of something your body is intolerant to can lead to an allergy and then eventually to an auto immune disorder.  At first I was disappointed to the negative results because I wanted an explanation for my not feeling well and now I am excited and hopeful that I can make myself feel better just by being more intentional with my eating habits.   

Here's to a healthier year all around....
