I wrote, earlier in the week, about my experience with fermented beverages, about caving in to my cheese obsession, and about making my own raw nut butter. I am 51 years old and have been eating the same way for all of those years. I’m enjoying feeling healthier and being pain free but I am having a very difficult time with all of these “weird foods”. I’ve never even eaten much in the way of fresh fruits or vegetables. I’ve never eaten sprouted grains and nut butter and coconut oil and I’m not sure I’ll ever get used to most of them but I’m determined to try. I don’t want to go back to feeling the way I did before and I definitely want this extra weight off. So far I’m not really enjoying the tastes and textures of the foods in my new diet. It’s just so incredibly different; it’s a whole new way of thinking. There’s so much health information to take in and remember. Take vitamins, use essential oils. Don’t medicate, vaccinate or exercise. Eat this, don’t eat that; cook this, don’t cook that; don’t cook in the microwave; this is bad, that’s good. Eat raw, eat clean, eat real; gluten-free, dairy free, soy free. AHHHHHHH! Who’s right, who’s wrong? All I can do is fumble and stumble along in my own way and hope that I don’t kill myself somewhere along the way by eating the wrong thing (or the right thing cooked the wrong way).
