But over the last 4-5 weeks, I've been really good and something just switched in my brain "It's just not part of my life anymore" and I don't even crave the white bread or pasta anymore. The thought of having clear skin, and not feeling bloated is just much more appealing that the 1 minute of pleasure you have when eating the bread! And when you cut out these "fillers" like white bread, you have so much more room for the nutritious stuff like fruit, veggies and protein.
Everyone is of course different, and for those who aren't gluten sensitive probably won't have the same reaction to wheat and dairy. But if you have been suffering from bad skin for a while (especially around your cheeks and jawline) and you don't know why, this may be the reason and it's worth looking into!
Yesterday: Fruit salad with banana, kiwi & orange
Today: Avocado with pepper spice & 1 egg (boiled is better) - Also had an apple
This is of course accompanied by my big cup of green tea :)
It's also about changing your mind set and reevaluating your patterns. For instance, breakfast is a really important part of the day! Would you rather eat toast with jam & butter / cereal or something that has lots of vitamins and protein to fuel you up? Another tip is to think of which food is more "alive" - thus, which gives you the most energy.
Also, when you eat healthy, you don't ever have to worry about fat or calorie content - you can eat as much as you like until you are satisfied. Fill your whole plate up with the healthy stuff.
Some other good breakfast examples for those of you cutting out wheat & dairy:
(Combine 2,3,4.. together)
- boiled eggs
- sliced turkey
- raw peanut butter
Fruit & Veggies
- black beans
- apples, oranges, banana, kiwi...
