You are what you eat

Diet changes – the jury is still out but it seems promising.
Over the past month I’ve changed my diet fairly radically (for me). No more takeaways (well, maybe a pizza once a week).

Instead, lots of fresh vegetables, organic where possible. I’m experimenting with salads, adding raw broccoli, grated carrot, fruits, and nuts, and so far I really like it. I also eat lots of cucumber, spring onions, apples, clementines, and so many bananas I’m starting to walk like a chimp. Happy

I’ve cut out coffee (apple cider vinegar in warm water makes a very refreshing substitute). Sugar is gone, too, and all meat is cooked under a grill or in the oven rather than fried. I’ve also cut out bread (not sure if this is such a great idea) and cut way down on my dairy intake. Biscuits (cookies) are now a rarity (I crumble them into a bowl of custard), although I still eat dark chocolate now and again which I think is supposed to be good for you.

I believe it’s made a slight difference. But I think I still have a long way to go to undo more than two and a half years of damage to my immune system.

If you have any diet tips or healthy recipes to share, please don’t enter them as comments. Instead, email me using the “Get in Touch” page. That way, I can download and compile them.

As always, thank you for your time and attention.
