Subject: RE: October Declutter & exercise~~~~ 2012
OK - I have been in really horrible pain from arthritis, sjogrens and vitamin D deficiency since last October. Soon to be tested for lupus.

Enough is enough. Friend (Guest CS) advised that I try complete dairy free (and meat free) diet. And i guess there might be something in the animal protein that is really hard on the body that is already unwell.

So today I had my first cup of dairy free coffee. Almond milk and tiny sprinkle of soft brown sugar. 5 ice cubes. Lovely.

I am off now to cut up and cook loads of veg, soak some pearl barley for veg chili, veg soup, minestrone. And tonight's meal will be a new thing.

Spicy African yam and peanut butter soup.

If I start feeling better I shall start tackling the mess in the spare room that is now spilling out to .. .well everywhere.
