i was sick all my life, all year long, with colds and coughs. they'd last for months. i'd cough so hard i spat up blood and broke blood vessels in my eyes and face. that was my normal.
in 3+ years of being grain free and 2+ years of primal, i have not had a cough, cold or sniffle. nada. my b/f is sick several times per year and i never catch what he has. when bugs go round work, i remain fit as a fiddle. it's not luck. it's a strong immune system. and frequent hand-washing.
As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.
