Over the past couple years, my diet has been evolving to more and more natural and healthy food. First to go was the fried food. Oh how I loved fried food! Amazingly, one day I just didn't want it any more. I have not tried to weed out anything from my diet, I've just been listening more and more to what my body wants. I simply wasn't drawn to it like I once was, and I ate fried foods weekly! The deep frier was the most used appliance in the kitchen. Seriously! My body must have decided it had taken enough abuse.
I ate a fairly healthy diet in my twenties (or at least what I thought was healthy at the time! Lots of cheese and fruit.) But in my thirties I was acquainted with soda and chips and all manner of SAD foods. Ugh! I enjoyed it at the time, but my body really paid for it.
Cheese was out this go around, as I had found out I am allergic to dairy; anything cow, actually (beef too). But I have enjoyed having fruit back in my diet. Seems with all those soda's, chips, and other fried foods, I just wasn't wanting any fruit. But with most of that now gone, my desire for fruit was a bit overwhelming. Now, it's the bulk of my diet.
I have been having fun trying various "superfoods" over the past couple years. Some I have been obsessed with (raw honey), others not so much (lucuma). I'll elaborate more on that in the coming days.
It's good to be back! I look forward to sharing more yummy (and sometimes the not-so-yummy) stuff with you.
By the way, the juice in that pic up there is apples and a pomegranate that I ran through my Green Life juicer. YUM!
