|« First False Alarm||Green Tea Ice Cream... »|
I'll never understand why I throw myself overboard sometimes, but I'm grateful to have a life preserver so I get back out of the deep water. I have knowledge of the effectiveness of the BTD, the benefits of beneficials, the agony of avoids...I know this stuff completely in my brain, body and memory, yet I still fall off the wagon every now and then.
I guess it goes back to "the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak" Part of me just wants to go on dietary Mardi Gras every now and then. I get enough bio-feedback on the gluten front that wheat is not a temptation, but sometimes everything else is. I think it all started with a snack-sized Almond Joy... I used to love those. It escalated into a couple (okay, three) McDonald's double cheeseburgers with no bun, but everything else, and I mean everything. I hate to say it, but those sure tasted good-at the time. They prepare the bunless version quite nicely, with a bit of lettuce around it...but I digress. There were probably three ears of corn in that thing between the sauces and cheese, and numerous other avoids. I suppose one or twice a year won't do any lasting damage, but I'm done with that binge for now. Of course, it made me a foggy-headed slug, then I couldn't get my rings off at bedtime, and my heartburn was back. I'm a walking commercial for dandruff shampoo now, as well...lovely corn.
Good news is, this new day has been compliant so far. I so wanted to put cheese on my broccoli omelette this morning, but I stuck with nutritional yeast. Let the healing begin!
