A Normal Diet

September 24, 2007

Recently, I decided to cut all caffeine, refined sugars, refined flours and alcohol from my diet. This is for many reasons, but mainly because I don’t feel good when I eat foods containing those things, nor do I feel good when I drink too much caffeine. Cutting out alcohol? That is because I am trying to give my liver a break, even though I don’t drink more than one glass of wine a week or less.

Although they are supportive, I’ve heard several jokes recently from friends and family that I’ve restricted my already "restrictive" diet (vegan) even more. Even though I laugh along with them, it still pains me on many levels that they just don’t "get it".

Instead of going on a full-blown rant, I am linking to a blog post that says everything I want to say and more concerning what we put into our bodies and why I am so "restrictive" about what I put into mine. That said, here is the post: What is a “normal” diet? Consumers and food industry pundits have it all backwards.
