I hate processed food

We are visiting my parents this weekend. We don't eat processed foods very often in our house. My parents only eat pre-made processed foods.

Yesterday I had eggs for breakfast. My usual. For lunch I had a piece of frozen pizza. For dinner was 3 thin slices of processed ham (the salty oval shaped kind), corn, and baked sweet potato slices. I also drank some soda and water, instead of just water.

After that little bit of diet change my hands and feet swelled. I had to keep my feet propped up the last few hours. I was craving water, but no matter how much I drank it wasn't enough.

I guess I learned my lesson.

Today I'm only drinking water, and the closest to processed I'm doing with dinner is the store bought bread for hamburgers that I'm making myself. It's just not worth it.

Feeling much better today. I'm avoiding all that crazy salt.

I get it. BUT you knew ahead of time how they eat. You should have taken food with.

Sorry you are feeling crappy though. Hope you detox quickly.

I didn't think one day would be that bad. I guess I was wrong. I hate feeling like my toes are the size of plums. LOL

Might not have normally, but, you're pregnant so it's amplified.

Would they take offense if you bring your own snacks or offer to make dinner?

Thankfully I pretty much flushed it all out. Ran to the store and am starting over today.

They prefer it since I cook from scratch (usually) and they don't. I ran to the store and got stuff.

I cooked yesterday, but they wanted that ham. I threw in veggies (which is something they don't eat - LOL). I'm sure their bodies were as shocked as mine, but for different reasons.
