Sunday

Happy Mother’s Day! I’m feeling great again! It’s amazing how being sick for an extended period of time makes “normal” or “not sick” feel so much better than you remember. Ecstatic. Smoothie time! Coconut Banana Breakfast Cake. Thanks, Nourishing Meals! Totally grain free. I did add a tablespoon of coconut sugar since my bananas weren’t […]

Monday

Mini quiches with sweet potato crust from nourishing meals. Used a yellow and zucchini squash and spinach for the veggies. And several herbs from my garden: sage, chives, oregano, thyme, and basil. </a They were taking too long in the oven, so I ate this while waiting. That’s earth balance spread on gf toast and […]

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 […]

Sunday’s Lunch

Church just reinforced this morning’s devotional and further re-charged me, despite my physical discomfort. The pastor prayed quite a bit for physical healing over the congregation, and you can bet I soaked up a good portion of that. Came home and shared this lunch with my daughter. It was so nice of the St. Patty’s […]

I didn’t break much of a sweat, but got winded easily and definitely had to pull back quite a bit when the side stitches kicked in (while walking “hills”). The elliptical. And […]

After a taste test, I ended up adding 2 ripe bananas for sweetness, and used a combo of unsweetened almond milk and coconut milk instead of water. […]

Sunday’s Breakfast

Quick smoothie before church. Avocado, banana, handful of spinach, frozen blueberries, almond milk, OJ. So, yeah. I feel a flare coming. I was kind of expecting this to happen as I tapered off the prednisone. Definitely nothing serious yet. A few minor lesions, but the red flags are that my tongue feels too big for […]

Wednesday’s Breakfast

Had 2 pieces of gf toast with olive oil spread to take all my meds and supplements, and a smoothie on the go. Here’s ingredients for the smoothie. It was significantly easier dissecting the aloe today. Practice is definitely making…. well, easier. It’s farmer’s market day around here. We went a little later than usual […]

Sunday’s Snack

Gotta get our aloe in for the day. 😉 And there was an interesting smoothie recipe in this magazine I wanted to try. Here’s my ingredients. Processing the aloe was marginally easier today. I found that a vegetable peeler was sort of helpful. The finished product… It was really delicious. With all the citrus, I […]
