Why, oh why, should we care about the glycemic levels of our foods? When I was young(er) I fathomed it was more linked to type 2 diabetes and waist lines. Turns out, having a high level of sugar in your blood stream is a lot more than that.
A problem I recently encountered, and a very un-fun one that results from having too much sugar and caffeine is an overgrowth of yeast in the intestines, called candida albicans. It’s a pretty brutal thing to rid yourself of, and after 6 months of eating a virtually sugar and caffeine-free diet (no booze, no booze ahhhh) I am now on a round of anti-fungals to hopefully knock it out. Fingers super crossed.
It could be imagined that my arms are sore right now. After all, heavy lifting with a cleaver and filming this episode do take its toll. Dumbells are now officially replaced by tripods. Not like I used dumbells anyways.
OK, ramble on, and then let’s stop and watch a video about a little combination I’ve fallen for: mint and chicken.
I guess instead of celebrating, I should really be asking myself, “Why’d this take so long!” Here we go, Bubble Child took 6 years of existence to make it to a more “modern” media platform, and I’ve gotta say, it’s fun. I’m already going crazy in the kitchen today posting pictures of cupcakes and tuiles and things.
