Feeling sorry for myself.
I'm Celeste, a magazine editor living in Phoenix.
Get ready for a lot of fitness, a lot of sass and a lot of froyo.
Today’s mishmash of a lunch:
- Boca burger
- Balsamic-Dijon lentils with carrots, onions and Swiss chard
- Grilled zucchini, squash, bell peppers
To answer some questions from my previous post — I have been devouring books on anti-inflammatory diets.
I’ve tentatively decided to transition into a vegan diet.
Unfortunately dairy and eggs are big problems for inflammation and arthritis. I don’t consume milk or cheese, but yogurt and eggs are major components in my diet.
I’m hoping to incorporate more vegetables and whole grains.
I love vegetables, but it’s just a matter of cooking more often. I can get lazy. On the carb front, I tend to forego good carbs for simple ones (frozen yogurt and Frappuccinos, anyone?). Bad news. But I’m already adding more quality grains into my diet, and it’s delicious.
So there’s that.
Also, I am on an arthritis-specific NSAID. But obviously I want to do whatever I can to keep my body healthy and pain-free.
