No, I'm not a granola crunching hippie weirdo. However, this is the first year in which I haven't gotten sick, not once. This is also the first 365 days in which I have watched what I am eating extremely closely, tracking all of my foods, and became a vegetarian. I do not think that there is a coincidence in this. I truly believe that eating clean, eliminating dairy, and eliminating meat from your life can truly transform everything inside your body.
I have not had to take any pain medicine today from my surgery yesterday, but my sister (same height as me, same weight, eats like a truck driver...), had the same surgery two weeks prior to mine and she said it was the worst pain in her life. I know that everyone's body reacts to surgery differently but there truly is no better medicine than healthy foods, drinking a ton of water, exercising, and getting sleep to recover.
You only get one body- fuel it with the most pure of ingredients.
