Thursday

Woke up with a slightly swollen lip this morning. Not sure if its a reaction to the tiny bit of dairy I had yesterday or something else. I’d had a few very small lesions already, and the swelling is because one of them got worse overnight. All the other lesions (5 of them) are still […]

I totally prepared this breakfast in the mindset of food as medicine and didn’t think it was going to taste all that great. It was absolutely delicious. Homemade black beans, sauerkraut, and chives from the garden. And a cinnamon roll with “cream cheese” frosting. Leftover lentil soup with grass fed beef meatballs and greens. Chia […]
