1) Gluten — I feel better when I don’t eat gluten. Moreover, studies show that many people are sensitive to dairy and gluten (even if not completely intolerant) so taking a break from these can help your internal organs and digestive system rest and recover. As someone with Hashimoto’s thyroiditis since age 7, I’ve known gluten isn’t the best for me, but I’ve never been able to completely eliminate it. These 10 days of eating clean made me more aware of how I felt with and without gluten and I definitely feel better not eating it. I stuck to the no gluten rule pretty well and when I slipped, I just had a few bites and didn’t stuff myself.
2) Dairy – As a lifelong vegetarian, I’ve considering going vegan many times but I would drink homemade lattes with milk every day and enjoy frozen yogurt way too often in the summer. I also get bad allergies and sinus issues and my doctor recommended decreasing dairy for those reasons. Much like gluten, I stuck to this quite well with just a couple of minor slips and overall did not miss it as much as I thought. Plus my sinuses were noticeably less congested.
