I like pretty things

the dairy connection

So today was my second day on the whey protein spinach shake and I've a headache. And I can barely breathe. My allergies are acting up. I also noticed a slight headache yesterday. Upon researching online, apparently some people get headaches from whey protein, and if so, they might be lactose intolerant. So. Am I lactose intolerant? I notice that I eat dairy every single day. So I might have to give it up for a week and see what happens.

I still like the idea of the protein shake, so I may just use the Vegan/Raw protein powders that are out there, like rice protein or sprouted grains. But dairy powder might be out of the picture.

Or make a smoothie but just minus the protein powder, because surely 1.5 cups of spinach per day is good for me.
I like pretty things

blargh blargh

today's smoothie:
- blueberries
- a cup of fresh spinach
- a banana
- ice
- almond milk
- a spoon of almond butter
- green vibrance powder (not protein powder)

it tastes decent i suppose. gotta get my servings of fruit/veggies in.
