I'm Hungry!

Not only am I hungry, I'm REALLY hungry!!  So hungry, I had TWO dinners tonight!  It probably has something to do with my new diet.  After lots of testing, we have finally gotten to the bottom of my fatigue and achiness.... ALLERGIES!!!  And candida.  I am now on a gluten free, casein free (dairy), yeast free, and low/no sugar diet.  It's going well and I've lost about 16 pounds.  But, best of all, I'm no longer achey and my energy is up.  So, well worth the sacrifice!  I'm learning an entire new way of cooking and eating.  I even made delicious cookies the other night.  Yum.

But, in addition to food, sometimes we're hungry for something else.
This year, I'm hungry for simplicity.  So, I'll be cleaning out old stuff, old habits, and making sure I don't over-commit myself.

But, I'm still thinking about food.  And if you are too, there's a place in Pittsfield, Vermont that would love to challenge you!

On a more serious note, I'd like to ask, how are you feeding yourself?  What kind of "food" are you giving to your body, your mind, your spirit?  Is it good food that contributes to health and growth?  Or is it impulsive junk food?  And are you over-indulging?  

Wishing you all health, happiness, and good food in 2012!!!

  1. That Pittsfield challenge is obscene! Who can eat that much in one sitting??!! Anyway, hurray for 16 lbs lost. You look wonderful! And hurray for simplifying! You know I love that. 2012 is going to be a much better year. I can feel it. :)
