Detox, days 42 & 43: barley

Barley apparently is an allergen for some folks, but not me, thankfully. ;)  I had a lovely barley soup to which I added extra cooked barley.  Yum.  Not quite as amazing as the cream- and sodium-rich version at Whole Foods, but it was still good.

The gums/sore mouth issue turns out to be BLISTERS from when I burned my mouth on some ridiculously hot food at the family reunion.  So gross.  I'm trying to swish with warm salt water, and stick to soft foods (yay barley!).  It feels better today than yesterday, thank goodness.

I think I'm going to switch tomorrow's plan for milk to peanut butter instead.  The cow's dairy messed me up earlier and I just am not in the mood for potential gastrointestinal issues this week. ;)  Hopefully peanut butter will be non-eventful. ;)
