Will There be Cake?

#fromlastnight #desertsunset #stgeorge #utah From 200 BC to 1250 AD Anasazi Indians scribbled bunches of stuff on rock in a little slot canyon in #southernutah and more than 760 years later I came along and thought it was pretty kewl. -

Actual quote, “Dustin give me my phone” 🙃 -
#snowcanyon #utahisrad #beautahful #petrifieddunes I made one measly official goal for 2018. Except it’s not measly. It’s mealsy. 😄😄😄... (I’ll show myself out). -
But seriously. As I’ve been clawing my way out of the dark pit that is Lyme, I’ve tried numerous diets. I’ve been low-carb for years. I tried keto. I tried low-fruit. I tried extremely high fat. I’ve gone no dairy. I’ve been no gluten for-EVER. I did the low-histamine diet. I ended things with sugar. I’ve switched to grass-fed meats. Guys, I’ve tried it all. Some helped, some are still essential, some made no impact, some made me feel worse, one ended up being a nightmare (keto, I’m looking at you). -
I know diet is a huge piece of my puzzle and I know I’m hugely affected by the food I eat. Soooo, on Dec 31st I did the only thing left and took the plunge and went plant-based. Overnight. Really I feel like I’ve been prepping for this my whole life... getting there in stages. I was always too afraid to attempt, thinking it would be extremely hard to not just follow, but to do right so you don’t become deficient in anything. I researched it for a week prior and the transition has actually been so easy for me. I’m almost two weeks in with zero dairy, gluten, sugar, processed food, or meat (with the exception of one serving of salmon at a restaurant). I already feel a difference (more energy, far less food reactions, better digestion, better sleep, and less heart pounding... hallelujah). There was only one time last week I thought “dang, I could eat some ribs right now...” but then I went to bed and forgot about it. It hasn’t been hard at all other than slightly more food prep. -

Sooo, so far so good. My goal is three months and then reassess. I will report any lasting successes in symptom reduction. I refuse to become an annoying vegan and I also think life shouldn’t be so rigid that I will ever say “never”. There IS ice cream and ribs in my future. But for now, me and my juicer are BFFs and plz don’t disturb my sprout garden. Here’s to going green! 🌱🌿🍏🥦 -
Lastly, FACT: these tacos were bomb.com. ✌🏻 -
