I didn't do a day 2 update.
I was busy. I was busy doing ALL. THE. CRYING. A couple times yesterday I didn't even know what I was crying about. But then I remembered this factoid I learned while getting my Holistic Nutrition Certification: Crying is one of the body's best way to get rid of stress hormones.
And the dirty truth of stress is that if your body doesn't need to fight a bear or flee from danger, stress and it's related hormones are pretty much just toxins that elevate blood sugar, reduce the efficiency of digestion and basically wreak havoc on your body.
So yesterday I cried. A million times. And it was the healthiest thing I could do for myself.
I also discovered my new favorite meal: broccoli with almonds, olive oil and lemon juice.
Other interesting factoid from my wellness days: Studies show that just one serving of broccoli per week can reverse genetic damage. Broccoli up and watch some This is Us, friends.
