My stomach hurts. I’m pretty sure it’s food related. Last night I went to dinner with a good friend. We ended up going to Thai food (my suggestion). I had two cups of a chicken-coconut soup and a half cup of a chicken string bean dish and 2 curry prawns. I didn’t eat very much but my stomach was a little off after dinner. Tonight I met another close friend for dinner at Hopmonk Tavern in Novato. It’s a great restaurant with a great variety from which to choose. I didn’t order off the menu. I asked for grilled salmon and whatever vegetables they had. My salmon came broiled, I think. I received a small bowl of grilled carrots with sautéed onions and mushrooms. Again, a small amount of food. I’m sure none of this was organic in any way…especially the Thai meal the other evening.
We’ll see what the scale reads in the morning. I was up 4/10th of a pound this morning. I attributed it to the Thai food last night either not being of the highest quality or having a high salt content. I have to remind myself not to eat chicken if it’s not organic. It really has an effect on me. My friend and business partner, Michael, always reminds me that nonorganic chicken is the worst kind of meat you can eat when it’s not organic. The things he tells me about nonorganic processed chicken makes my skin crawl…blach!
Tonight I chose to eat salmon thinking it would be a better choice. It tasted good and fresh, but I can tell something in the preparation is not sitting well with me. I may choose to go with just raw vegetables next time and see how I do.
It will be a constant journey of trial and error to incorporate eating out and finding the right combination of foods that work well for me when I do not have organic choices at my disposal.
Ouch…my stomach is really hurting so I’m going to sign off now. Okay, here I go now…goodnight!
