Random Thoughts

I worked in the garden for a little while this morning, pulled a few stray weeds and did a deep watering.

Fruit sure is much more delicious than I've ever remembered. I mean, when you get used to having white sugar, fruit doesn't taste as sweet.

Earlier today I had two nitrate-free hot dogs – my hubby found some on clearance at a regular grocery store. I didn't even know such a thing existed. I quickly scanned the ingredients list… I didn't see any weird stuff, like soy, or preservatives. Anyway, along with the hot dogs, I had some gray zucchini squash steamed with a dollop of coconut oil. I got my order of oils from Mountain Rose Herbs and the virgin coconut oil is just fabulous. It has a milder coconut flavor than my previous coconut oil.

I seem to be getting used to the coconut taste in my veggies… or maybe it's just the milder flavor and taste of the Mountain Rose Herbs coconut oil.

I should be able to try dairy soon, but I feel myself hesitating.

I keep saying this isn't supposed to be about losing weight, but I guess I have had a bit of a paradigm shift after reading a blog post this blog post, Weight Gain is a Symptom, over at Kristy's “Living It Up Corn-Free” (Kristy's blog is no longer active, but I located her original post at

If gaining weight is a symptom of dis-ease… then it makes sense if I am restoring my health that I should experience weight loss.

But that doesn't mean all slender people are healthy by any means. In fact, since my experience with GAPS, in many cases slender people have digestive issues.

I read a book about a year ago which stated there is almost no way to keep weight off, if your genetics dictate that you will be heavy. But having learned about GAPS, I don't know if I believe that any longer.

The book basically said you are fighting your genetics and the only way to stay slender is to watch every single morsel of food you put into your mouth for the rest of your life. I never wanted to live like that. Yes, GAPS does ask me to restrict the foods that I eat. But they are healthy foods.

If you think about it, the foods we were given to eat by our Creator are natural foods. There was no canola oil, soybean oil or refined white sugar back then. No TV dinners, or fast food restaurants. These foods are hard on our body, at least I can tell they were hard on mine.
