Rose - You REALLY don't want to see me moan and groan at your house. :-) The garage is purdy. I helped him tear it down and toss junk out. He put it all back himself. :-) Yeah for the fence!
Yeah, I'm not sure about the GSG. It doesn't seem balanced or natural. She would be always cleansing and never nourishing. I'm wondering if she'll actually have problems later. But as you said, Rose, everyone is so different. My Chiro (who I adore) follows a very strict vegetarian diet. She has energy and runs marathons....but she looks at least 10 years older than she is. Not exactly a walking testimony. I've been doing Paleo for about 3 weeks and I feel great and I'm losing weight. To each their own! :-) I'm not sure about the skin color, it would seem that the body isn't processing right. From what I've read, I'm not sure going veggie would heal the gut. It would cause more problems acording to some things I've read. The GAPS doc is interesting with her take on food - there are nourishing foods and cleansing foods. Depending on what the body needs, both can heal. It might explain a whole bunch.
I'm off to pop some spagetti squash in the oven. I made Chocolate Chili. Yum!
