However, I sort of love the Bristol Stool Chart… especially because I've been in an unhealthy stage of the chart for months and months and months - and now - in the last few days - I am not.
I'll leave that at that.
Today I added olive oil, to no negative effect thus far, and to the great joy of my palate. Over Christmas, John and I hosted a tasting party - we tasted between 3 and 5 versions of the following:
- olive oil
- smoked salmon
- dark chocolate
- milk chocolate
- sharp cheddar cheese
- sparkling wine (France, Germany, Italy, USA)
It was a wonderful theme for a party - engaging but not too focused on An Event - and I highly recommend it. You can pick almost anything, and tasting them side by side helps everyone know what the really do like, We have leftover samples of all these fragrant, strong olive oils, and today I rejoiced at the new flavor.
I also added about 3 sips of carrot juice, and man, I used to hate carrot juice. And after a week of fairly bland food, turns out? I still hate carrot juice. But no ill effects on the belly and I'll have a little more in the coming days because it is supposed to gear me up for much better tasting juices in the days to come after that.
