Hello and Happy Weekend Bats of the world! How are you?
Do you have any exciting plans for Hallow’s Eve? I think My Love and I are going to stay in, cuddle up, and watch a movie. Yes. We are that old.
Speaking of old, as the weather changes, I am noticing that my body is starting to ask me for different things. I have noticed my body just seems to do better when it is warm outside. I am less sensitive and less reactive. In the winter it seems my body is already upset that it is cold, so any other thing out of the ordinary sets it into a tailspin of bad reactions. For me, digestion has always been my issue, and it just gets worse as it gets cold out.
So, I have been treating my body extra nicely, and I have changed up my eating just a little bit. Here is a snippet of a day in the life of my help-my-body-cope-with-winter-love-plan.
First things first, I start every day with a big litre of water, and another litre of lemon water;
I drink the two litres throughout the morning and into the after-noon, but I focus on getting lots of water in before I eat anything else.
I tend then to eat nice soft juicy fruits during the day;
Along with my first green juice, some time after noon – o’clock;
Then I tend to drink some tea;
For dinner, I have my second green juice;
Then I eat some ice cream;
And a bit more fruit on the side.
I get as much in liquid or puréed form as I can, because I find this really helps me with my tummy troubles.
As a side note, the above ice cream was amazing. It was banana, mango, orange, strawberry and vanilla. So much yum.
So there. Do you find that your digestion and food preferences change as it gets colder?
