I decided since I was sick and tired of being sick, and tired, I would be getting rid of wheat, corn, tomatoes, and gluten. All of which I am allergic to. Also all grains, which includes rice. Almost any thing with a label. And, much to my sorrow, sugar. (I gave away 3(3!!) 2 liters of Coke. I am serious now! ) This comes under Physical recovery. If I don’t take care of my health, no one else will. Sooo….
I purged the pantry, BIG time.
Flour weevils. Did you know they live in dried pasta? Me either.
Those black dots. Ewwww.
Had to trash those donations.
Here are the bags of stuff, ready to go out into the world and bless others.
This isn’t all the stuff that left, just what I remembered to take pix of!
Cheese, which has annatto, and 6 frozen Banquet meals, and ALL the candy I had hidden in various places.
The neighbors were more than happy to take the stuff off my hands. Matter of fact, I think they thought I was off my rocker!
Also had to throw away the Miracle Whip, salad dressings, Asian sauce, etc….
Even the peanut butter had sugar in it! What????
Going to follow Wheat Belly way of eating. Not a diet, a life style change. If I think of it as a diet, I’ll look forward to the end, so I can eat “normal” again. If I ever hope to feel better, not like a 92 year old who is about to die, then it behooves me to start thinking of white sugar, white flour – white death. My chiropractor BFF, Joyous, has been telling me that for about, oh, 3 decades? Why, oh why am I so stubborn? Don’t answer that!
Looks pretty organized right? Just putting like with like. Nothing crazy like alphabetizing!
And apparently my helper didn’t realize cans of corn kernels were actually corn. Cuz you know, the label wasnt big enuff print, and the picture was of White corn! Very very tricky!
But with the weevils running around, I guess I really am gonna have to clean. Sigh
At least then my
cardboard, I mean rice cakes will be safe. Oops, I forgot, no grains…. sigh
But seriously, what can I eat??? I’ve already asked for lettuce leaf donations on Facebook. No response yet. Maybe I need to start a GoFund Me for vegetables.
