Well, it has been one full year of eating lots of crucifers, no animal, and a general boatload of veggies! I am AMAZED as I stand at one year through this natural journey at how much better I am right now than I was a year ago. It is UNBELIEVABLE that veggies are doing what meds couldn’t do!
The past few weeks, I have been having regular fever and sores in my nose and general fatigue. But overall, I am out of that long flare and am enjoying a little more of life!
I haven’t mentioned fibromyalgia on here yet. But I had a horrible bout with fibro pain in May, June and early July. I have my suspicions why. Here is the short of it: antidepressants can stop the fibro pain for some people. I got off my antidepressant in May. It wasn’t until late June that I read about the connection. And all of the sudden the horrible pain I was in made perfect sense. I probably have had fibro all along, but the antidepressant was masking it. And my body was going through withdrawals, which caused the extreme pain. It has been VERY mild since early July. I am thankful for that and waiting for my doc to squeeze me in to discuss it all.
MEAL PLAN! (Does this help anyone? Should I stop?)
This week, we are tightening the budget belt. So I am trying to stick to eating what we have and buying less expensive foods.
Sunday: Squash and potato hash browns , roasted broccoli, fresh fruit, and I am going to make fresh juice!
Monday: Roasted sweet potatoes with Nutritious Eat’s chimichurri, green beans from our produce co-op, and fresh fruit.
Wednesday: Vegan quesadillas (bean and cheese for kiddos) with slaw for me.
Thursday: Salad bar and leftovers
Friday: Pizza night!
Have a happy week! Share any meal plans or recipes you have found! How is YOUR health? I know I have Lupus followers, as well as fibro, RA, Hashimoto’s, and diabetes. I want to know how YOU are! Or are you blessed with great health? Share!
