The past few days have left me feeling pretty gross...and that's actually an understatement. This past Monday evening, a few of our neighbors decided to have an impromptu cook-out in our apartment's courtyard. And it was awesome. We're talking bratwurst, burgers, grilled chicken, corn on the cob, asparagus, et al. And yet, the only things I ate were the first three things on the list: the meats. Oh, and to make it worse, I actually ate a hot dog earlier that day with the in-laws. Talk about an excess of processed meats (ew). While it seemed like a good idea at the time (when is this ever a good idea, really?), my stomach and well-being are now disappointed in my choice. Hello! I never, if rarely (!) eat this way and I pride myself on having a fairly balanced diet (with the exception of a once-in-a-blue-moon ice cream). I've felt nothing but uncomfortable for the past four days. And so I've made up my mind to feed my body what it wants: an over-abundance of fresh fruits, fresh veggies, whole grains, and lots of barley tea and water. That always seems to help. What do you guys eat when you feel this heavy? Any advice is welcome!
