I Love Veggies, I Do But……

veggies

Oh my this is so a problem.  I love vegetables.  I can eat them cooked any way including raw for most of them.  So what is the BUT, well I have IBS  and some of them just don’t agree with me.  They want to make be bloated and all gassy.  Do you know that discomfort well it’s there and it’s a good thing I work out at home because the release during the workouts haha just glad I’m at home.

Now the biggest help in this is my superfood drink.  It is not by anyways a cure for IBS or a prescription for IBS.  JUST know for ME, my superfood is load with so many vegetables, vitamins, fiber, digestive enzymes, pre and post biotic, adaptogen herbs and botanicals, shucks the list goes on and on.  Most of all it decreases my IBS discomfort and  my nutrition isn’t compromised with the smaller amounts of veggie consumption.

My One Week of Celery Juice Fad or…….

I see it on social media and an associate of mine was thinking of doing it but was hesitant. Of course curiosity was there and had been lingering for a few months now so I decided to give it a try.

First I want to say these are my results after a week and a week is not adequate time to form a conclusion as I’ve noted others have raved on different results and if I continue maybe I will see greater results.
Okay to begin with I have a history or well a diagnosis by GI (gastroenterologist) MD as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome). My first day and my first few swallows I had several moments of belching, I know sounds gross. I also noticed specific foods only small quantities as they were high risk to cause a flare on the FODMAP were easily digestive, which means less bloating.

I am uncertain if it was the celery juice or my favorite “Shakeology” was kicking in strong but my off cravings decreased even more. My energy was also slightly elevated more than usual. Will I stop the celery juicing, ah no I am really curious to see if there are more benefits.

This is not at anyway saying, “Hey y’all, this is the treatment for IBS, energy or curved cravings”. This is JUST MY current experiences and evaluation after one week. Everyone is different and responses to specifics are different.

Well, now I am adding celery juice to my journey for now.
