In Which I Treat My Body Like Shit

…and Pay the Price

I don’t eat dairy. Or wheat. Or much sugar.

Lately I’ve been eating too much sugar, but mostly maple sugar which I guess makes it okay? I don’t know. It tastes really good anyway.

This weekend I ate a ton of wheat and even more dairy. I had a milkshake, which I haven’t done in years. I had a quesadilla (the best damn quesadilla I’ve ever eaten while not in labor) and a grilled cheese sandwich (not at the same time).

I am now awake despite being ready for bed an hour ago, because my digestive system is PISSED OFF. I’ve got an irritable bowel and a sore throat from belching up acid.

And I am feeling very sorry for myself.

    Mint tea?

    Seconding the mint tea recommendation, and also fennel tea if you have it (in a pinch I’ve even made a tea from whole fennel seeds I keep in my spice cabinet for cooking.) Sorry your digestive system is so grumpy — hope you feel better very soon!
