I’ve been out sick with a monster sinus infection + the flu for the last week or so. Ripped through our family of 5 and – once the kids get it – there’s really no avoiding it. But that’s not the point of this post. The point is that I just realized that this is the first time – EVER – that I’ve recovered from a infection like this without any antibiotics. None. At all. And I’m pretty sure it has something to do with becoming vegetarian since last fall.
Since I made the jump to the dark #plantpower side, I’ve definitely noticed a MUCH stronger immune system. So, frankly, I was kind of annoyed when I got sick this time… but the fact that I’m recovering faster than usual without any meds really struck me as something worth noting. Food for thought!
