Something Got In My System
Friday night while still out of town in Myrtle Beach, SC. I stopped and ate supper at a place called the Healthy Living Cafe. While the food I ate was great and most of it was very healthy. I’m pretty certain that the non-gluten oatmeal cup was filled with a little more than just organic bananas, carrots, raisins, pecans, honey, oatmeal and unsweetened almond milk. I made sure I asked the lady what ingredients she used. I should have known better just because of it’s sweetness.
However, I took her word for it. I was so excited to eat something that tasted like a desert that I bought three of them. I ate two that night and one more the next morning. It’s the only thing I’ve eaten anytime recently that I wasn’t fully of aware of all the ingredients. It didn’t take long for my stomach to tell me something just wasn’t right. By Saturday evening my entire body was vibrating like it would if I had a lot of sugar or caffeine.
Last night was a very long, stressful, and painful night. Of course, things always hit the night before I’ve got to preach. Even still, my increased health helped me override what could have been a day of disaster. So far, things still aren’t out of my system.
I can promise I won’t be swallowing anything questionable anytime soon. The pain and discomfort just aren’t worth it. Just another reminder that what I put into my body always matters. I am disappointed with the unnecessary pain I’m feeling, but I know it should be out of my system in the next 24-48 hours.
