DAY 203 -- Papaya Enzyme

There are certain foods that give me almost instant *gas* ... such as white flour products, some processed foods, and eating too much fruit.  When I eat healthy natural foods (and small amounts of fruit) I rarely have that problem, but the minute I eat something made with white flour or with added chemicals, I become, er, *gaseous*

I remember seeing a television interview years ago with Suzanne Somers.  She told the TV host that she couldn't even remember the last time she "tooted," because she ate so healthy. I haven't reached that level yet.  Some days I still manage to consume something that causes problems for me. To combat such a problem, I carry chewable papaya enzyme tablets in my purse. They really help with digestion, and I get almost immediate relief.  

I'm packing for my trip to Idaho (high school reunion) and making sure my purse is stocked with papaya tablets since I have no idea what kinds of foods will be served at the reunion. I don't want to embarrass myself in front of my former school chums!!


  1. I wonder if that is a gluten allergy? I first heard about people being gluten intolerant when I worked for an attorney who discovered it by going on a gluten-free diet. I am hearing alot about people being lactose intolerant as well.

    I have a very fast acting system also. My husband is amazed how I can eat something and within 20 minutes my body reacts. I have heard of using the papaya tablets and I think I'll try them.

  2. I love that stuff, too! I especially use them when I'm pregnant to give my sluggish digestive system an extra boost. It really helps!
