I have a new appreciation for the fact that my diet has had to be modified. Without the need to analyze what I am eating, the revelation and reality of what I am eating would not have occurred. I was a person always conscious of healthy eating habits, so I thought. Delving into the world of food has been a very frightening and eye opening experience. Being forced to read labels has taught me to be more cautious and buy from the fresh and organic sections of the market. We are inundated with chemicals, genetically modified products and fillers. The more I learn about those ingredients the more I believe, my dietary limitations are a blessing, not a tragedy.
