My partner recently decided that beer and bread were the culprits of his reflux and heart burn.
He would be a dreadful, grumpy, pained inhabitant of Medieval Europe.
As a consequence, he has pretty much stopped consuming them – albeit with the odd relapse, just to make sure
This has had the knock on effect that I too have cut right back on my bread consumption. I love bread, almost as much as I love cheese and never thought I could live happily without it. Just the way I used to feel about cigarettes.
But live happily without it I have for the last couple of months, apart from the odd relapse… just to be sure.
This last week I have had bread twice and twice in the days following, I have experienced… if you’re queasy stop reading now…. runny bummage.
Partner and daughter bought me (and it turns out, them) a Nutribullet for my recent birthday and we all have been daily replacing meals with various nutrisquashies involving whatever is in the fridge and the fruit bowl
It’s a revelation
Sometimes TV shopping shows pay off
That’s how I ended up with one as a present. Partner couldn’t sleep one night and sat up watching hour long episodes of “Buy the Nutribullet”
By dawn he was converted
Liquidising everything in sight and consuming it through a straw has led to much reading and research about gut health and the benefits of squashie consumption.
A couple of days ago I started reading about kefir which is a fermented milk drink that is said to be nice to your tummy and poo tubes. And also a perfect addition to any nutrisquashie.
I have a work friend who, in the last 12 months, experienced a nasty infection that required him to be attached to a pump that constantly injected him with antibiotics for weeks.
Now his poo tubes are mental too and the doctors think it will take up to 2 years to become normal again.
Poo Tube friend has a nutribullet also, and I told him about kefir this week. So we are having a race to see who’s poo tubes become sensible first.
That’s our 2016 challenge: The Sensible Poo Tube Challenge.
Yesterday I bought a Mad Millie Kefir Kit for $21 and today on my lunch break I mixed up a litre of coconut milk kefir.
Partner watched on with a sceptical curl to his nose and a plethora of questions I’m not informed enough to answer.
Stay tuned for an update on the poisoned coconut milk
