Tuesday

Feeling good today! 🙂

Golden beet greens and garlic omelet and spiralized sautéed 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 stevia. Yum!

Veggie sushi for lunch: red peppers, roasted golden beet, avocado, baked tofu squares, spiralized jicama, herbs from the garden (basil, oregano, mint, thyme), sesame oil, and bragg’s liquid aminos. And sprinkled with chia seeds.

Also had some raw “cookies” for a snack. Just processed nuts, dates, and coconut oil. These are a MUST to always have on hand. Totally satisfy a sweet craving and make you feel like you just ate a cookie. Delicious with almond milk.

Dinner. Quinoa pasta with edamame, broccoli, garlic, tofu squares, lemon zest, basil, and Himalayan sea salt.

Green alkalizer. There’s fennel in there, under the kale and parsley. Lemon for detox and alkalizing properties. Cucumber and apple.

So grateful to have had a good day today. Hopefully will continue to improve overnight. Meeting with my infectious disease doctor tomorrow. Going to get his perspective on this Lyme diagnosis. He was one of the 2 main doctors involved in my care during the hospitalization 4 months ago, and he is the one who diagnosed me with Behcet’s 3 years ago (after months of misdiagnoses from other doctors). So I trust his opinion and am hoping he will agree with my integrative doc’s course of action.

Update: infectious disease doc doesn’t think I have Lyme. Thinks it’s a false positive on the test due to cross reaction of the multitude of antibodies my body makes because of the autoimmune responses. Said if I had symptoms or risk factors, it’d require a closer look, but without those, he’s confident that I don’t have it. Not sure what I’m going to do from here. Waiting to hear back from integrative doc.
