Tuesday

Feeling good today! 🙂 Golden beet greens and garlic omelet and spiralized sautĂ©ed sweet potato. My omelets never come out looking like omelets, so I’m very proud of this one. Healthy chocolate shake: handful of macadamia nuts, frozen banana, almond milk, sexy hot chocolate mix (raw cacao, carob, and maca), and a few drops of […]

Ugh. I’m on a little bit of a roller coaster with this flare. Not too bad today, but definitely not feeling great. Had gf toast with butter before my doc appointment this morning. And a cup of green tea. Still dragging and not really thinking clearly. It’s hard to be patient with baby girl on […]

Feeling soooo much better today!!! :))))) Still look like a freak with my swollen lip, but I don’t care about that. The lip causes minimal interference with eating, so it’s not an issue. The tongue is significantly better, and overall pain/fatigue is pretty much gone. I’ll need to be mindful not to wear myself out […]

So, I guess this qualifies as a set back. Not feeling well again today. Exhausted and not thinking straight. Lip is swollen around a lesion, tongue doesn’t seem any worse, but its definitely swollen, and there is clearly thrush lining up behind that lesion. My cheek isn’t swollen anymore, but the offending area inside my […]

Still feeling pretty good. Lots of cleaning going on around here today, so I know my energy level must be up if I’m motivated to clean. Either that, or my house is REALLY dirty. Breakfast… Lunch… Applegate Farms turkey and hummus on gf bread. And chia pudding. Carrot-Orange-Ginger Juice. So far (I’m on page 17) […]

Was not feeling well most of the day today. Woke up with a swollen tongue (one big, deep lesion causing a big mess) and feeling achy and exhausted. Speech and eating both definitely being affected at this point. Couldn’t take all my supplements since some of the pills were too big to get past my […]

Breakfast was kashi indigo morning cereal and kefir. Sorry no pic. Lunch was brown rice pasta with olive oil, sun dried tomatoes and basil from the garden. Greens for the day: kale, celery, pepper, cucumber, and lemon. Dinner was microwaved shepherd’s pie. And warmed roasted beet salad with walnuts and goat cheese. Having some issues […]

Tuesday

Scrambled eggs with olive oil, garlic, spinach, turkey (Applegate Farms brand), tomatoes, and daiya cheese. Cuties and grapes. And chamomile tea. Making the filling for my cheesecakes (made and froze the crust the other day). This stuff is soooo delicious. I ate too much and got slightly nauseas. It has a lot of agave in […]

A little late getting this post up… we had a busy day. GF cinnamon raisin toast with organic butter and several cuties (clementines). “Cheetah” pudding. (Actually chia pudding, but my daughter calls it cheetah because of the “spots”). Stopped at Whole Foods after doc appointment for lunch. Chicken salad, grape leaves, and sweet potato. Cauliflower […]

My favorite pancake recipe. 1 egg + 1 banana. Done. I added pie spices and vanilla, but its totally unnecessary. We’ve made the switch to organic eggs, despite the cost. In the past, I’ve only purchased them when they were on sale (which is almost never). But I’ll be getting the public greenwise brand until […]

Friday

SautĂ©ed sweet potatoes and beet greens with garlic and avocado, topped with an egg. And a big refreshing jar of red beet elixir. Perfect after a morning of gardening outside. This year, I’m attempting zucchini, spaghetti squash, tomatillos, various tomatoes and peppers, Swiss chard, onions, poblanos, honeydew melon, scuppernong muscadine and Concord grapes. All from […]

Greens, eggs, and ham for breakfast. Plus strawberries with bee pollen. My husband does not like the bee pollen- says he’d rather eat live bees. Lol. Oh well, more for me. After a very restful evening, I’m feeling much better this morning than I did yesterday. Off to a natural health seminar this evening on […]

Breakfast of champions… Also finished off my Mom’s healthy oatmeal cookies on the way to a play date at the zoo this morning. Had mac & cheese, and roasted beets with orange vinaigrette for lunch. Plus another 16 oz of green juice. Not feeling great this afternoon. Very tired. Lesions are becoming more of a […]

Had an apple pie larabar and 8 oz of ginger lemon aid to take meds before heading to a “juice morning” meet-up with my moms club. 8:00 am is kind of early for us, but I couldn’t pass up the chance to hang with other health-minded moms, and to get some yummy “mean green” juice… […]

Dejavu breakfast… exactly the same as yesterday. I really, really like bee pollen. Also drank about 24 oz of lemon water to try to finish off this headache I’ve had since yesterday. Lunch was frozen leftover shrimp stir fry with flax and cashews, and raw broccoli soup (microwaved, so no longer raw, I guess). Also […]

Breakfast was gf toast with coconut spread and sprinkled with bee pollen. For lunch, I made a simple, classic, organic, chicken and vegetable soup with carrots, onions, garlic, celery, and seasoned with herbs from the garden (rosemary, oregano, thyme, basil) and himilayan sea salt. My daughter, parents, and I ate about half the pot, and […]

Still planning to drink all the usual juices today, but I’m going to eat normally as well. Decided to continue as before for now- including grains (except wheat) but moderating them a bit, and minimizing animal products, with the focus being on finding pastured, grass fed, organic products. Breakfast was 16oz signature greens, gf toast […]

Day 2 of juice cleanse. Feeling good. Digestive system seems to be working normally, as though there’s no difference in what I’m eating. That seems weird to me. I wouldn’t think there would be much to “eliminate” since I’m only drinking juices and eating a few bites to take medicine. And I’ve got some thrush […]

Going to try a juice cleanse today. I’ve modeled it after O2 Living’s juice cleanse. They recommend you start the day with warm lemon water, then drink a juice every 2-3 hours, along with 64 ounces of water throughout the day. There are 6 bottles of 5 different juices for this cleanse, 16 ounces each. […]
