This morning I got up and ate some breakfast, but I felt so droggy. I felt like I was still feeling the effects of the drugs I took the night before. So I put some beans, BBQ sauce, and Chicken hot dogs in the new small cooker and I went back to bed, I did not want a repeat of the way I felt on Sunday. I slept until about 3pm.
When I woke up, I felt much better, and the house smelled like someone was cooking. Of course, it was my slow cooker telling me I could eat any time I wanted. I was surprised that it was pretty good. There was a lot more liquid in the mixture than I put in, so I would have liked it more if it was thicker, but it was still good. I ate my Beans and Dogs with my home-made Sauerkraut. It was very good. However, before I was even finished I was running to the bathroom, again. Every day, it’s crazy. I keep having to run to the bathroom from 1-5 times a day. (3 today)
So later, I wanted something else to eat but I was afraid of eating anything too heavy. Unfortunately, I’m out of bread and haven’t made any, and I’m also out of any plain crackers. So my darling husband make me a few pancakes. After eating I’ve had the worst heartburn. I took Maalox, something I don’t like to do, I stretched, my husband patted me on the back, I burped a lot, but nothing seemed to help. Finally, I ate a little apple sauce, and everything is calming down.
I read about an Acid/Alkaline diet a while back and the main part of it I didn’t really pay attention to, but I did decide to try some eating some of the foods that they have on the highest Alkaline list when my stomach starts to scream with too much acid, and acid reflux. During the summer, this is easy because Watermelon is a very alkaline food, but now that it’s fall, I didn’t know what to eat. So of course, I searched the handy-dandy internet (how did we ever get along without it?), and found that apples are also a highly alkaline food. Not as alkaline as watermelon, but still pretty high. And the pectin in applesauce is supposed to help with GI problems. Maybe I should eat more applesauce, or perhaps I should make another apple crisp? Ummmm, apples.
