I didn't have much of an appetite today, and once again could not bring myself to eat a grapefruit.
I thought I would dedicate this blog to investigating Sports Drinks.
I had to go and do grocery shopping today, even tho I did not want to be more than 5 metres away from a bed or a toilet. I had to rely on drinking Gatorade to make me feel better, and after that...surprisingly I did.
I know that they are not classified as Earth Foods as they are riddled with colours, flavours, sugars and goodness knows what else, so I thought I would do some investigating and see if I could find a natural alternative, which does an equal job at re hydrating :)
Here is what I found...
http://www.cptips.com/hmdesnk.htm On this website I found a recipe that sounded really yummy!
I have made 2 changes which appear in the brackets, these are healthier options:
- 1. In the bottom of a pitcher, dissolve the sugar and salt in the hot water.
- 2. Add the juice and the remaining water; chill.
- Calories - 50
- carbohydrate 12 grams
- sodium 110 milligrams
- potassium 30 milligrams
It is great! They show you how to make 100% natural herbal sports drinks :)
They explain everything on the website and even offer ingredients you can buy online.
After drinking powdered sports drinks today I felt the refined sugar surge through my body, and it wasn't happy about that at all.
It has now been over 24hours that I have been back and forth from the toilet, and my tummy is extremely sensitive right now! I just ate some yoghurt, which was 100% dairy...and also wasn't what I committed to when I decided to take on this challenge. The biggest challenge so far has been staying on Earth Foods while I am really sick. If anyone/Liana has advice I am all ears!!!!!!!!!
Here is what I barely managed to eat/drink today:
BREAKFAST: A chocolate smoothie with lots of ice
LUNCH: Grapes and more Grapes
SNACK: A Choconana Smoothie
DINNER: More Grapes and a Caro Tea (Derived from Barley and Chicory)
Well, I am once again off to the toilet!
Be grateful for a good nights sleep, good health and hydration :)
