I just want to thank everybody SO much for their comments on my last post. I appreciated your wisdom and your support, and hearing about your own personal experiences! I really took to heart the advice about appreciating the subtlety of change, and of not expecting immediate gratification, which is just not realistic.
Unfortunately, all questions of food and detox are going to be on hold here for a little while. I had two of my wisdom teeth taken out today. I'm sure all the pain-killers I was injected with and I'm taking right now are not exactly detox-friendly! Nor are the soft things I'm eating: soy yogurt, pudding, and little fruit gels. But as soon as the bleeding and drooling stops, as soon as the pain goes away and the swollen chipmunk cheeks go down, I'll be back to eating and blogging like normal.
Thank you all so much for stopping by!
