January detox honesty special

Day 1 of bettering my health. (detox starts here)

We are ovo-vegetarians, no meat/fish, we eat our chickens eggs and honey from the allotment. No dairy, ( although when we stayed in a hotel we ate croissants for breakfast, so yummy but so wrong)

We used to be no gluten too but that slipped, (we love pastry and bread too much, sometimes make our own gluten free bread but this depends on being organised and having enough eggs and making puffed pastry from gluten free flour is almost impossible)

We have no toxic chemicals in our house or in our body/bath products ( we are really strict about this and have travelled miles for a decent bar of soap) we have come a long way in 5 years, stopping smoking, no drinking alcohol, no caffeine but we have gone no further. We have talked about how tried we feel and how Tom has aches and is cold a lot of the time, I have a bad lower back and hold onto weight around my middle. We realised we need to move up to the next level of health and wellbeing or its going to be a slippery slope of danish pastries and slobbing in front of the TV.
