Confessions of a Vacation Queen!

We had a lovely and relaxing time visiting my husband's Aunt at her lake front home.  It did manage to rain almost every day so we WERE a bit cabin crazy by the end of the week though.  Being inside, with JUNK FOOD everywhere, wasn't a good combination.

It's AMAZING the effects sugar, processed junk with names you can't pronounce on the label, etc. has on the body.  Within the first day of altering my organic, highly raw food diet, I broke out with a rash all over my face.  It was so gross.  I also had around the clock tummy issues.  Can we say gas galore???  Ewww... the biggest thing I noticed right away was the insatiable appetite that I all of a sudden had.  I immediately starting craving things that I have not craved in a long time.  I couldn't just eat 2 had to be 10.  My desire for vegetables and fruit (while before I could NOT get enough of) went completely away.  I had no desire to eat one smoothie, didn't want a bite of a single apple.  All the cravings that disappeared once I changed my diet to organic and loads of raw came running back like a train of bricks.  Amazingly wild.

I just went to the grocery store and am loading back up with all my pre-vacation staples and looking forward again to eating to live, vs. living to eat mentality of last week.  I know my stomach will thank me, as well as any man, woman or child within a 5 ft. radius of my tummy issues! :)


  1. I'm glad you're back and had a good time, despite the gas-inducing food..LOL..

  2. Your post is so funny and all too familier.
