I don't know if it's SAD(Seasonal Affected Disorder)brought on by the lack of sunlight or my own post-Holiday blues or both, but I just can't seem to get traction on anything around here lately.
I just want to sleep.
I don't feel well. I guess I'm sick but it's not something I can go to the doctor for and get a pill or such.
I thought I had flu, but I don't.
I know I'm having sinus issues, which I shouldn't be having at this time of year.
Maybe my soul is stuck in a malaise and it's presenting itself as physical illness.
And not that anyone wants to read this but.....even though I've been eating 'normally' my lower gastrointestinal tract has not been "happy".
So I looked at what I had been eating lately and played Clue with myself and I think I found the culprit for some of this unpleasantness.
As a result, I've taken myself off of eating cheese in any way, shape or form for 1 week.
I've noticed that cheese is making me "gunky".....high falootin' professional medical term "gunky", right?
And between gunkiness and sinus issues I am a gurgling, wheezing mess in the chest. Coughing to beat the band too. "Need to invest money into Kleenex stock" coughing.
So I am off cheese and also keeping away from milk.
And as soon as a say no to cheese and try to meal plan, I notice that if you take into account every dish I cook that includes milk and cheese, we eat quite a bit of it around Chez Sluggy.
I heart cheese but it's not being kind to me.
My denouement with fromage came last Thursday when I served the Lasagna from the freezer. I had a small serving and by bedtime, my Gunkometer was through the roof!
That's when I gave cheese the heave ho! for a week.
I am now on Day Four sans cheese and I think my coughing and congestion is down. Not running through the tissues at an astonishing clip anymore.
But I am still not feeling like my old self. (Including the lower gastro area either...even after some additional citrus and roughage.)
And the cheese in the kitchen keeps calling to me it's siren song of creamy, tangy goodness........
Please make it stop!
