Well, thank goodness I do not have that disorder. If I had to give up those things, my mood would be pretty stable, though--dark, dreary and miserable, but stable that way.
I can say that I am most grateful that I have few restriction on my daily diet.
I am also grateful that I can afford (at least for now) to eat a variety of foods. According to an Associated Press article in our newspaper this morning:
"People who spend the most on food get the closest meeting federal guidelines for potassium, dietary fiber, Vitamin D and calcium...Those who spend the least have the lowest intakes of the four recommended nutrients and the highest consumption of saturated fat and added sugar."The point being made was that too many people cannot afford to follow the new U.S. nutritional guidelines as advertised by a plate of salmon, leafy green vegetable, and rice pilaf.
I guess that has to mean wild caught Alaskan salmon, organic kale, and some exotic blend of rice and spices.
Because I don't really believe most people can't have a fairly balanced and nutritious diet on a reasonable budget.
I mean, there an awful lot of high-priced junk food and processed foods to be had in any American supermarket--even the "health food" places. It's not just about money. Time, traditions, values, choices, motivation, and good old appetite all enter into it.
I got my book, A Homemade Life, today and I have already read a third of the way through. In case any one is wondering why I seem a bit food obsessed today.
