oh and lex! I try to keep a good balance. The thing is that my family is very grain heavy folk and since filtering grain out of my diet I find that when I introduce a little back in I get some unfortunate *ahem* "Rainy Days". The thought of grain doesn't even pass me any more- casseroles, rice, bread, whatever that I used to scarf down at family things (and had no problem eating at our family Christmas) I wouldn't even think about. Part of it is that I don't crave it and for the most part it's lost its appeal -regardless of repercussions later on (or not) even being a factor. If it wasn't for my crazy aunts sitting next to me going "why aren't you eating" I probably could have not eaten. Not even the chicken that I was eating was overly appealing. The funny thing was that I was sitting next to my cousin who couldn't eat because he was fasting in the religious sense- Coptic fast limits you to eating vegan but even the rice in our family is made with chicken stock.
