Ok not quite sure what's up with me today but I think it was a not so common veggie called a "sweet yam" that I used in the veggie fritter receipe last night. A little drunk so, this entry won't be very long. But, the "sweet yam" is the ONLY thing that's been different in my diet since I started this and I am bloated and not digesting foods the way I should - lemon water didn't work today, which is odd and this is the only new food I've tried that's not mentioned in the book. It won't be hard to avoid from now on - it's a yam but has a different, rougher outer skin than a sweet potato and is white on the inside - definately just use a reg yam/sweet potato with that receipe. Although I had a SUPER stressful day today with the kids, I really think this white yam is what's messing me up since I started off the day with sharp stomach pains - something I used to expereince all the time BEFORE Eat Right For Your Type. So, in short, I think us AB's should avoid this "sweet yam," white in color that I found at my local bodega.
Had 2 pear ciders and a veggie quesadea (sp?) at our favorite local bar (I took the roasted peppers off of it of course) - I'm definately feeling MUCH more relaxed. :-D I felt a little wasteful taking out the peppers but the last thing I wanted in my stomach was more avoids - that yam has done a number on me. :-( Hope you all are feeling well and finding happiness in your environments - see you all tomorrow!!!!
