Hello Golgi Fans and curious onlookers - Nathan (my husband) and I have officially begun the 3-week Golgi Clinic cleanse. We had our first visit with Dr. Martinez today as snow drifted past the window. By the time we'll be complete, daffodils may be blooming in Missoula. Meanwhile, we'll be learning from the spring growth about how to get back to the nourishing basics.
Nathan said to me the other night "be your own keeper" while I drooled (and wheezed with a late-winter cold) over a piece of freshly-baked pizza. I held back because of the mucous factory that had set up shop in my nasal cavities.
"Be your own keeper" encapsulates my first visit with Dr. Martinez today. After an overview of the cleanse, I now have a cleanse manual full of great ideas -- which is exactly what they are until I start doing them. During the cleanse, we'll be eating veggies, wild game, fish, and some fruits. This all sounds good until I look at my usual habits that are on the "don't do" list -- including strenuous exercise. After being sick I was excited about getting back to more challenging exercise, but looks like a 20-minute walk and stretching are a lot more supportive to the body's regenerative abilities. I'm curious how I'll handle eliminating dairy, gluten, and the occasional social ale from my diet.
And. . here's my carb-bomb daydream that I'll probably have on the next sunny Missoula day:
