lunch with my aunt at a mexican restaurant~
salad with salsa, guacamole, tomatoes and cheese
Gastro-intestinal pain~I believe this is because of the vegan~meatball and a couple of brussel sprouts I ate yesterday, the Papa Joe's salad I ate Saturday and the corn salad. I sometimes have delayed pain from the previous days food consumption, as it was still in my intestinal system. Sometimes this is several days of bad choices for me.
I share this for informational purposes~to help you to analyze your own situation...it took me quite a while to figure out that my pain was not necessarily from what I had just eaten but was some type of reaction because of my gut contents. When I am in a situation like this, compele elimination of gut contents is my only relief. Also, it is a reminder not to eat those things that irritate my gut. I have a sluggish system so when I eat heavy foods that tend to hang around a few days it creates an environment ready to wreck havoc on my system and my life. Physical pain~pain that takes your breath away (which this does) interferes with LIFE...with relationships, activities, attitudes...everything..it does draw me close to the LORD...which is always a good thing. Now I just pray for strength, self-control, wisdom and willingness to turn away from the temptations that come my way in this area.
Some heavy foods for me are cooked foods, avocado (boo hoo~I love guacamole), greasy chips (bad anyway) dairy and meat....
For these reasons a raw or high raw diet is what makes my body happy and pain free.
Oh, how strong our previous eating habits and likes become ingrained in us. May we be set free from the bondage of destructive habits...
Later when I could breath and my lunch had moved out of my stomach....it was time to put something into it that was fiberous and would create activity...
Activity created....!!! Things are moving and pain is gone with just a shadow of irriation left...but nothing I cannot live with...so I want to continue to eat a lot of fiberous things
