Rough day calls for an easy dinner

Today has been rough. Loads of fatigue. I basically only peeled myself off the couch to make sure my kid was fed. On days like today, if it ain’t easy, it ain’t happenin’. But with the right things in the fridge, throwing something kid friendly and healthy together is simple and easy. Grassfed, uncured hot […]

Woke up feeling alright despite not sleeping well. Lesions were marginally worse than the previous day, but no big deal. Had granola with pears and almond milk for breakfast, then dragged baby girl out to the farmer’s market with the promise of popcorn (the kettle corn vendors give out little sample cups- she loves them!) […]

Had a little bit of a lesion outbreak that I started noticing late in the day yesterday. Two on my lip, two inside my cheeks, one on my tongue… all minor, but irritating, and seemed to be ready to grow into a major problem. I started using the dexamethasone mouthwash more regularly (I’ve been avoiding […]

Thursday

Breakfast was 2 slices of homemade farmhouse seed bread with coconut spread. Tried to take a photo, but phone was acting up. Spent the day out running errands. Came home to this quick lunch of grape leaves and kombucha. Snacked on trail mix and diluted cherry juice throughout the day. Dinner was a can of […]

Tuesday

Leftover egg-free whole grain waffles for breakfast. With avocado, pear, and kiwi sprinkled with lime juice and hemp seeds. Had a moment today between breakfast and lunch when I felt like my blood sugar suddenly plummeted and I got weak, shaky, and sweaty, and felt an urgent need to eat something. This used to happen […]

Woke up slightly congested today. Thinking it might have been the yogurt yesterday. Dairy really seems to mess with my sinuses. Used the neti pot to get cleared up. Quick breakfast of leftover quinoa muffins and earth balance spread with orange spice tea before heading to the dentist. I have really good teeth, but cleanings […]

Sunday

Simple breakfast before church. Lunch was gf toast with olive oil and healing ginger miso soup. Juiced this stuff. Frozen microwave meal for dinner. Dressed it up (and boosted nutrition) with a diced avocado, culantro, and lime juice. I’m kind of addicted to coconut water. Nothing makes me feel so hydrated. It’s like my cells […]

Woke up with a headache this morning. Thinking it’s partially due to dehydration and partially due to blood sugar imbalance because of my sweet, high carb dinner last night. I drank lots of water and had this for breakfast (brown rice with sautéed beet greens and an organic egg)… and the headache immediately started to […]

Monday

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 […]

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 […]

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… […]

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 […]

Wednesday

Gonna try a new format and see how this works. One main post per day should be more manageable than three. I usually post everything at once anyway. Breakfast was gf toast, eggs, and avocado. With sexy hot chocolate (with maca powder). 😉 And juiced this stuff. Hello, my beautiful juicer. How I’ve missed you. […]

Monday’s Dinner

Not much of a dinner, but it was late, and I really wasn’t hungry. Just needed something to help take my meds. These gf cookies are really good. We tried the peanut butter and ginger snaps. They do have quite a bit of sugar, so definitely not something I even need to be eating right […]

Wednesday’s Dinner

Buffet style family dinner… And dessert… The Kashi cereal is really delicious and I feel good about the ingredients. The Glutino cereal bar- not so much. And I’m sure that corn starch and canola oil is GMO. I’ll eat the cereal bars while I’m here, but I wouldn’t buy them at home. The Kashi cereal […]

Monday’s Dinner

My first attempt at GF bread in the bread machine. Used a ton of egg whites. Came out pretty yummy. It’s a mix from Bob’s Red Mill. I guess the next step is to try it with my own mix of flours. Also ate leftover quinoa pistachio pilaf from the freezer. (Hubs and company ordered […]
