I hate you, white pasta
I've been on an anti-inflammatory diet since my surgery in May and will have to be on it for the rest of my life. But, last night, I decided to "live a little" and have some good old fashioned white-noodled spaghetti. Never again. I was miserable all night long, tossing and turning. My abdomen was so painful and gaseous. It was the kind of pain where you can't identify what part of your "guts" is hurting you because it just hurts all over. The only cause I can link it to is the white pasta. I guess the anti-inflammatory diet is working and now I can tell when I throw a "wrench" in the system. So, from now on, nothing but whole grains, fresh veggies, beans, and lean grass-fed proteins. In fact, I'm taking my little arse right over to the farmers' market first thing in the morning. Lesson learned.
