As a little kid I loved….yogurt, coagtte cheese, vegetables, occasional juicy fruits, brown rice with tomato sauce, split peas and lentils, peanut butter, nuts, salty things (although I NEVER put salt on my foods, just liked foods that were naturally salty). I rarely ever used butter or oil. The only meat I liked were fish/shrimp/seafood, turkey and occasionally steak in small amounts, but I didn’t really like meat. Oh, I also liked cheese (especially cheddar cheese). These were probably my most frequently eaten foods. I did like whole grain breakfast cereals and oatmeal too. Loved yogurt but did NOT like milk. I liked when my mom occasionally made us shakes with a little bit of ice cream, soy protein powder, and blueberries. I was always an energetic, thin, healthy kid. But I did have mucous a lot and I wonder if thats from all the dairy I ate and loved, and it makes me hesitant to go back to dairy. If I ever ate eggs, I only liked them when the yolks were super runny. I liked salads too.So why not eat like you did as a child, DaughterOftheSun? Sounds like you were much healthier then. I say, forget about everything you learned about what constitutes a healthy diet. Do you really love all those exotic super foods or do you eat them because you BELIEVE them to be healthy? A food is only healthy when you believe it to be. If you aren’t satisfied with it, it’s probably doing you no benefit. Start with what you are craving. You state that’s protein, then your body is trying to tell you something. Eat some good quality protein that you feel comfortable with consuming and go from there. It sounds like you love dairy. Me too! 🙂 If you are worried about mucous, give raw dairy a try if you haven’t any previous experience with it. You may find that you don’t get mucous problems if the dairy is raw. This seems to be many peoples experience. I’d say it’s worth a shot. If it doesn’t work for you, try something else, but let it be something you would actually like and not something you’ve read is suppose to be good for you and also give your body a chance to adjust to the new food before writing it off as bad for you. Hey maybe you could try something that isn’t green. 🙂 Just playing with you! I completely understand where you are coming from. I once said to my mom I’m at the point where I could eat tree bark and I actually meant it. LOL :)Maybe the reason why you are so tired is because you aren’t eating what you know deep down inside you should or want to be eating. I know with me, the constantly thinking about what is healthy to eat and all the conflicting nutrition advice made me not want to eat half the time. It all just left my head spinning with confusion. Believe it or not, all that thinking can really drain ones energy. What I would love for you is to have the courage to follow your own instincts and beliefs and not someone elses beliefs. You can ask for advice here, but you will be hard pressed to find a unanimous view on diet and this will only make the problem worse. Just like with everything in life, Everyone has there own beliefs, but the one that should matter most to you is YOURS. To many times I listened to others salt is bad, meat is bad, saturated fat is bad, dairy is nothing more than cow puss blah, blah, blah. All that got me was deficient in salt, protein, calcium, messed up hormones due to the lack of saturated fats. Trust your gut! No one will take as good a care of you as you! Best of luck. You’ll figure it out. I have faith in you.
