You would have to live in a bubble to have not heard the phrase “don’t eat processed or refined foods.” Because, at least for the past couple of decades, an increased awareness about the hazards of highly processed foods have been making their way into the mindsets of the public. But what does this mean in practical terms in our microwave, quick-fix, gotta-have-it-now culture we live in when we are faced with a barrage of advertising promoting this low-fat treat or that low-carb something-or-other? When was the last time you saw a commercial promoting broccoli or carrots?

Keep in mind, if you’ve been consuming a mostly sugar based diet, you probably won’t want to go cold turkey right away. Cut back by little by little each week until you feel ready to take it all out.

Flax seeds: Is a good plant source of omega-3 fatty acid, a different fat chain of omega-3 than fish oil. A photolytic compound called ‘lignans’ found in flax seeds is also a good source of fiber. Flax seeds are nutritionally better for you than flax seed oil. Grinding the seeds is preferred, as they are very small and are better absorbed by the body. A pepper mill works great for this, and you can eat the ground seeds on cereals, salads, and more.
I’d love to hear from others with an allergy to the smell or just being in proximity to their allergen. How do you cope with it? Does my house now need to be a milk free zone? Perhaps my husband can have his own fridge in the garage where he can have his breakfast and cup of tea – I’m sure he’d love that! So far it hasn’t happened with just one other milky drink in the room, but is it just a matter of time? or am I just panicking about nothing?
