Since starting these daily blogs, I have become much more observant and perceptive. For example, I ate a completely compliant breakfast this morning, but still experienced an abdominal cramp 30 minutes after breakfast. Of course, this begs the question, why?
So I took another look at my breakfast, and I found one definite avoid and one possible avoid. The definite avoid would be in the carrageen (soy milk) and the possible avoid would be the sugar I put in my coffee. It’s my understanding that sugar all by itself is not a bad thing, but that Americans in general consume way too much. In fact, the average American in the 1800’s consumed 2 pounds of sugar a year. In the 1900’s, that number increased to 4 pounds of white sugar per person per year. Compare that to the current American citizen: 140 pounds of white sugar per person per year!!!!

Well, I would like to see some evidence behind my theory. Tomorrow it will be:
One glass of water with lemon before breakfast
One slice of Ezekiel Bread with peanut butter (just peanuts and salt)
Canned pears, drained (no corn syrup, just water and sugar)
The one and only difference will be the lack of things added to the coffee. Until tomorrow…
