Good Morning, Beautiful People! I wanted to give an update on my adrenal stress. If you read my previous post on it, you know that I started carb cycling. Well, I want to be very open with you guys and let you know it didn't help me like it has in the past. But, this is also my first time trying it as a Vegan. I was getting discouraged when a wise friend said, "Maybe it's your diet. You might be putting more stress on your adrenals carb cycling, rather than just focusing on pure, whole foods." I agreed. When our bodies don't have enough glycogen from carbs it has to make its own using fat & protein from our bodies putting stress on our adrenals. So, I went back to my normal eating and I'm almost back to normal!🙌 I am still learning what works and what doesn't eating plant-based. But, I'm realizing you can't go wrong when your plate is full of nutritious, whole foods.
Above is my breakfast this morning. It's "neat" sausage made with pecans, oats, and chickpeas. Cucumber, beans, and an apple. Hope you all have a blessed day!💜
