Nummy! Your blue corn tortilla thing sounds so good! 🙂 Week 7 makes sense – how are you feeling? Did you have a specific week/time that you really felt like your symptoms decreased in a sudden, noticeable way?
I didn’t get to the grocery until this evening. But, my *loving* hubby did pick up some snowpeas and spring water for me on his lunch hour and brought them home 🙂
BREAKFAST: For breakfast, I sauteed the last of my shaggy looking spinach in olive oil and added 2 beaten eggs. I let it cook on the stovetop until the edges are done and then finish it off in the oven on the “broil” setting until the top is golden. A frittata 🙂 Pretty much like veg2 explained ^ earlier. Had nettle tea. Oh, and before breakfast, as I was getting my children settled and wiping the kitchen u a bit, I ate a handful of raw almonds.
LUNCH: Lunch was waaaaaay too late, and my blood sugar was rapidly falling. (I tend to have low blood sugar, but I’m not technically hypoglycemic.) I had taken some organic ground beef from Trader Joe’s out of the freezer last night, so I grilled 3 good sized burgers with it. Sounds easy, but it took FOREVER and I was hungry! I ate 2 of the burgers with guacamole on top. This is one of my favorite lunches 🙂 I also ate a side of crispy snowpeas. Just like french fries, right? Ha. Anyway, if anyone would like to try the guacamole on top of a burger, here’s my favorite way to make guac:
Mash an avocado
add the juice from 1/2 a small lime
add garlic powder and salt to taste
add about a tablespoon of chopped fresh cilantro
By the way, I’m growing my own cilantro, parsley, and basil. Cheap and easy ways to really perk up some of the foods we can have.
SNACK: I was mixing up part of a rather elaborate dessert I’m attempting for Friday night’s birthday party. This was the “coconut layer”. I nibbled on several tablespoons of the following and ate a handful of sunflower seeds a little later on.
About 1 C. shredded, unsweetened coconut
1 can full-fat coconut milk (I use Thai Kitchen – red can)
1/2-1 tsp. stevia (to taste)
1 tsp. alcohol-free coconut flavoring
about 1/2 c. coconut flour
If it’s too runny to do anything with, you can put it in the fridge to firm. If it sits in the fridge for a long time, it will get really stiff and can almost be like a kind of coconut candy. Almost 🙂
DINNER: Our older girls were having a pizza party for their soccer team at the local pizza place. I ate a Trader Joe’s kielbasa (again) and some snowpeas (again) before we left. I mixed up some dressing in a tiny plastic container and took it with me, hoping there would be a decent salad option. There was, but it was mostly iceberg and probably had preservatives all over it. Oh, well.
Here’s the dressing:
2 parts olive oil to 1 part lime juice (3:1 if you want less tartness)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp onion powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
salt to taste
Tonight, I’m still working on that dessert recipe. I think it’ll be alright, but CUH-RAZY rich. In a not-so-good-way. At least I won’t be tempted to eat too much of it, right? So, I munched on parts of that. If it works out, I’ll share the recipe soon.
Hope y’all have a great day tomorrow!
