Of course my pain is not just because of the crochet, I first developed problems when working as a graphic designer in my late twenties. All those thousands computer clicks a day and bad position at the desk simply wore out my arm. When adding hours of crochet to it in 2009 it all came back and has pretty much never left (read more about it here and here) and even if I do crochet stretches and exercises to prevent the pain, the inflammation itself seem to not want to go away. It is hard to let your working arm rest completely for a longer time period.
So I decided to try something new. Change of diet. I've heard about people who have done it and kicked their chronic pain in no time. My friend Emma is a nutritionist and specialized in LCHF (Low Carbs High Fat) and she has helped me to make my new path.
I am crap at diets, I love food and especially sweet cakes, ice cream, cookies and desserts. I'm a sucker for pasta and bread. And even if my Jay is a fabulous high end chef who makes incredibly healthy food with a total love for vegetables and inspired by Mediterranean cuisine, I do snack away on anything unhealthy as soon as I get the chance. Yes, this is going to be a bit of a challenge indeed. Cutting out not only the carbohydrates and gluten but the sugar also???
I've tried this
Always when meeting up with Emma we cook something small; pancakes, chocolate balls, ice chocolate nibbles, bread... This time we made egg milk. Or maybe you call it egg nog. I was very skeptic... Drinking raw eggs. Yuk! I'm not Rocky Balboa. But it is so yum!!! You can not believe.
It tastes like the smoothest Cafe Latte and you get everything you need for a great start of the day. So here is the recipe. If you are the person who hates eating breakfast and always starts your day with a coffee to go, this is the way to start in a more healthy way.
