Hey guys! It sure has been one heck of a week around here… between the weather, the headaches (or lack there of!), classes, and some general family drama there’s a lot to sum up.
This week started my anti-inflammatory/clean eating/ crash course in veganism diet. In attempt to clear up my migraines without a daily medication I chose instead to medicate myself with fresh, wholesome foods. It was a bit of an adjustment the first few days, and I definitely overbought on spinach for the week, but so far I have been feeling amazing! I’ve had a major reduction in headaches and a major increase in energy 🙂 I get my MRI/MRA test this afternoon to make sure that everything looks okay up in my brain (fingers crossed) and then I’ll go from there as far as letting you know what changes I decide to make permanent.
So far this week we had some beautiful sun, a flood, and now snow… clearly the weather in my area has been a little out of whack, which would usually make my allergies crazy! But so far this season I haven’t even had a sniffle. In my mind it’s all thanks to my daily use of my neti pot, along with a daily dose of magic from Good Food Matters. Seriously I’m usually a stuffy, snotty mess this time of year, but this time around I haven’t even touched my tissues 🙂
I also may have hit up the health food store for a few more natural goodies since my new eating patterns have been going so well (thank goodness I’ve been working a lot!). Ginger candy, caco nibs, local honey, and lots of almonds… I’ll keep you posted on what kind of kitchen trouble I get into over the weekend 🙂
