Hey, I was just curious to see what things we've all been learning and what you're doing as far as diet.
I have gone through all my cookbooks and indexed appealing recipes featuring the foods I'm trying to incorporate. Mostly, these include dry beans, brown rice, whole grains, dark green veggies, yellow and orange veggies, etc. I've had a terrible diet in general, so this is a huge overhaul for me. I'm gradually replacing things in my pantry: natural peanut butter for processed, butter for margarine, baking powder with no aluminum. I'm still trying to remember to drink purified water, and I'm doing pretty well at swearing off chocolate and refined sugar (considering where I've been at!) I'm also trying to eliminate as many processed foods as possible.
Yesterday, I made a blank menu on my computer, where I've broken down each meal of the day into the food groups I want to include. So, my next goal is to plan about six weeks worth of menus.
I'm taking a vitamin supplement that also includes "female" herbs: Dong Quai, Chasteberry, Black Cohosh, and others. I'm keeping close to the amounts recommended in the books I'm reading. I also hope to supplement with more zinc and to begin taking flax oil daily.
I think after getting food, vitamins, and some herbs going, my next task will be to read up on and implement some detoxification procedures into my life.
What's everyone else doing?
