Imagine my shock when I checked the date of my last blog entry! A week ago?! Impossible! Hardly….
This Bright Week was bright and busy. The journey towards good health progresses with ups and downs.
The up-side is I am feeling better! That is a nice feeling! The stomach feels good. The throat isn’t clogged 24/7. Energy seems to be coming back. Yay!
I found that the facial soap I was using contained soy which explained how a middle aged woman was breaking out with acne! Horrer! The new facial soap doesn’t contain soy and the acne is gone. Yay # 2!
Another “yay!” is I’ve discovered another food additive that contributes to the choking feeling is high fructose corn syrup, a chemical sweetner that is added to everything under the sun. This discovery has prompted the search for foods that do no contain this ingredient. Go try and find something without it! YIKES! But I have!
This blogger has a very nice and simple explanation of the reason why HCFS is used so much as a sweetner in all our foods. Thus explaining why organic products with real sugar are so expensive. Ah…ya gotta love the Government.
The down-side is the food bill is going up. Organic foods that do not contain soy, peanuts and HFCS are not cheap. However, I am eating healthier, that’s for sure.
The “Need To Do” list is very long for the week. At the top is writing my paper for American History which is due Friday. The topic? Herbert Hoover and his most excellent little book The Challenge to Liberty which is his rebuttal to FDR’s New Deal. Can you believe…the semester is almost over. Only a few more weeks and then voila…into the first summer session!
