Sorry, not much to see here.


FAQ

Q:  What the heck does ‘salubrious’ mean?

A:  Gee, I’m glad you asked.  I can tell you thanks to our friends at dictionary.com:

sa·lu·bri·ous  [suh-loo-bree-uhs]

–adjective
favorable to or promoting health or well-being; healthful; wholesome.

See?  You’ve learned something already.

Q: What do you eat?

A: A lot of things! And a lot of it. My diet is loosely based on a few versions of the Anti-Candida Diet / Anti-Fungal Diet and is similar to a Primal or Paleo diet. Since discovering that similarity, I’ve started following some Primal/Paleo blogs. This has been quite an adjustment for someone who has been mostly vegetarian for about 20 years and even flirted with veganism. I’m simply looking for the best formula to support my optimal health.

Q: What don’t you eat?

A: This is ever-evolving, but here’s the list for now:
– anything containing gluten
– oats 😦 (even gluten-free is a no-go for me)
– heck, let’s just say most grains most of the time
– bovine dairy, sheep dairy
– sugar and sugar substitutes of any type (refined, unrefined, agave, honey, stevia, etc.)
– corn and corn products
– soy
– yeast
– most fruit; I allow myself 1-2 servings per day of certain fruits
– legumes
– I try to limit goitrogenic foods, but it’s difficult for a veggie lover like me (brassicas, soy, spinach, beets, and more….)

I’m trying not to be totally psychotic about what I don’t eat. Sure, you won’t find me eating gluten under any circumstance because that makes me sick. But if I’m not making my own food and there are some black beans in a dish? I’m not going crazy about it. Life is too short. Sure, it will extend my healing process, but I’m okay with that. And one day when my body has healed, I hope to re-introduce some of these foods into my life.
