It just occurred to me that when I set up this blog, I didn’t allow comments. So for everyone who tried to leave a comment but couldn’t, I apologize. You can do so now.
So today I had my first food aversion. Something that I previously enjoyed to my heart’s content and well, not for a long while. Well, at least not until December.
Yes, you read that right. Vegan ice cream. I’m not vegan. I’m not even vegetarian, even though my diet mostly is (more on that later). But I love vegan ice cream. I love regular ice cream. Trust and believe, your girl will eat Baskin-Robbins until she’s bankrupt. But I can’t really have regular ice cream because it’s dairy and dairy doesn’t jive well with me (I’m not lactose-intolerant, I just can’t have a lot of dairy for other health reasons I’ll explain in a later post).
About two years ago,I slowly started to eliminate dairy from my diet. Now, it’s not that I don’t eat dairy at all; I love it whenever I can get it. I love cheese. I love ice cream. I’ll Paula Deen the hell out of my pies every Thanksgiving. But I also know I can’t have too much of it. I drink almond milk. I’m reading up the uses of coconut oil to replace vegetable and canola.
So back to why I can’t have vegan ice cream…well, Yoda doesn’t like it. And when Yoda doesn’t like something, he/she tells me in the form of making Mommy nauseated. And yeah, I was pretty nauseated after my vegan ice cream orgy.
So no more vegan ice cream for now.
However, I do have a new favorite:
The green stuff is kale. The white stuff is just tortilla chips. I’ve had a strong craving for kale. Kale and Brussels sprouts, to be honest. I’m lucky I’ve had pretty much healthy cravings.
Well, except for one:
Yeah, I had that today for lunch. And I enjoyed the hell out of it, too. It’s a bacon cheeseburger with sweet potato fries at Whole Foods. I didn’t finish my burger and fries but you best believe I will tonight. Yessir.
