One thing that has been slightly frustrating throughout the majority of my life has been the fact that my body is VERY selective of what food and drinks it wants.
I remember a couple years ago, almost very time I drank my body was NOT happy in a very prominent way. I then realized that sulphites is a very BIG no-no for me, so literally drinking wine was hurting my body in more ways that I knew.
Or back when my husband and I met, I got very comfortable, very quickly with him with the digestive challenges I was experiencing. I will never forget the one night, we had nachos… and yup my stomach was NOT happy!
Bless his heart, he is still very supportive for my health and digestion!
In being more comfortable in me and my lifestyle I’ve begun branching out to try more things homemade. Being gluten free throws a quick turn into this, but we roll with it.
Here is why it’s SO important to know your body.
I succumbed to a craving for onion rings. Even found a kick qss recipe that was not only delicious, it was so crispy AND easy!!!
I knew in the back of head, don’t do it. But I wanted to try them so bad, JUST TO SEE IF I COULD MAKE THEM at home!
It hit me the next evening… I know the feelings leading up to, begin to over heat, guts rumbling. That’s the thing with digestive challenges, you need to know your body to know or learn to figure our WHAT caused it so you can shift!
Unfortunately for me, IBS flare ups are typically over a couple days and then it takes time for my body to get back in rhythm again. Also a real reminder of WHY I have shifted my lifestyle and realized what true “normal” is for me!
The dog also decided to veer from his food selection and remembered butter is NOT a dog’s best friend… I felt like I had a newborn again, at one point the first night up after 2am every hour 😳!
