Can you tell I’m just a wee bit obsessed with sweet potato?

Last week I was such a grump. Aside from the unfortunate combination of PMS and detoxing, I was freakin’ hangry as f*ck. I LOVE food so if I have to overly think and overly strategize my food it takes away from my fun and leads to an unhappy G.

So far I’m on day 11 of my sugar detox with just 10 days to go. And I’m feeling good today but last week I was not nice. And the only thing that really saved me besides an entire avocado every single day: sweet potato.

I have the most sensitive stomach/gut. When my stomach is upset, the rest of my body feels it. I tend to break out, feel overly exhausted, grumpy or even just plain old fat and gross. Yes, I said but I know you feel me. One thing that always helps me feel balanced and ready to take on anything are some handy dandy probiotics.
