Wednesday

Felt really tired today. No aches, no lesion issues (still healing, but much better), no extreme debilitating exhaustion. Just really dragging. We traveled a few hours away for a (distant) relative’s funeral, and I slept most of the 3 hours there and 3 hours back. I think my body needed a day to recharge. Breakfast […]

Friday

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) […]

Saturday’s Breakfast

We were in a hurry to get to yet another egg hunt this morning, so I ate my snickerdoodle bites for breakfast. It’s a good thing they’re a lot healthier than they sound!

Friday’s Lunch

Pretty good for frozen pizza. Can’t wait to make my own gf pizza crust. One of these days… Juiced this stuff for an alkalizing green drink. Didn’t even put in any fruit. I was craving as much of that green stuff as I could get- without the sweet. Very strange. This hit the spot. Also […]

Sunday’s Snack

I really don’t think I’d ever get out of the house if not for this trail mix. It’s kind of my food-security blanket right now. I know as long as I have some with me, I’ll have something acceptable to hold me over until I can get to real food. Snacked on it in the […]

Wednesday’s Snack II

Adapted a recipe for raw brownies to make these raw brownie bites. Ingredients are: cashews, raw cacao, himilayan sea salt, extra virgin coconut oil, vanilla extract, medjool dates, dried figs, dried apples, raisins, and stevia. I think I ate the equivalent of about 4-5 balls, but can’t be sure, since they never made it into […]

Monday’s Lunch

Hanging out at my Mom’s this afternoon. Put together a hodge podge of acceptable foods from her fridge. The deli chicken is nitrate/nitrite free. The berries and apple are pretty low-glycemic (thinking in terms of how they might affect the candida infestation I’ve got going on) but the banana may not have been the best […]

Saturday’s Lunch

Shrimp fried rice. Sautéed loads of ginger and garlic in olive oil, added chopped peppers, grated carrot (actually leftover carrot juice pulp that I freeze for things like this), peas, broccoli, and shrimp. Then added cooked brown rice and seasonings- tamari, liquid aminos, and fish sauce. When everything was almost done, I cleared a space […]

Tuesday’s Snack

Orange slices dipped in raw vanilla chocolate sauce (leftover from our raw vegan meal the other night). And a big mug of sexy hot chocolate. (Sexy because its got Maca in it.) Also had a midnight snack of gf muesli with almond milk.

Monday’s Lunch

Chicken sandwich (gf bread, canned chicken, vegenaise, a slice of sharp cheddar cheese (yes, real cheese), chopped tomatoes and basil) with grapes, and veggie booty.

Saturday’s Breakfast

Quick bag of homemade trail mix and a mug of green tea before heading to the gym. Had a fantastic workout. Did a body pump class, and felt like I still had a bit left in the tank, and baby girl was having a blast in the nursery, so I jumped on the elliptical for […]

Wednesday’s Snack

Found a way to (somewhat) contain the popcorn explosion. Despite having to put a bib on it, I really do love this machine. We are eating popcorn every day. We were told by our pediatrician that our daughter shouldn’t eat it (or raw carrots or nuts) until age 4- said it was a choking hazard. […]

Saturday’s Dinner

Spent the evening hanging out with the in-laws. Ate leftover beans and rice along with a green juice I brought over with me. Rice was white instead of brown, but otherwise should’ve been relatively healthy. And I ate 3 big handfuls of blueberries for dessert.

Saturday’s Lunch

I was not prepared for lunch at the conference today. Ended up eating what was served, minus the bread on the sandwich. Hoping I didn’t inadvertently ingest any gluten. The chip ingredients are far from healthy, but I don’t think there was anything that breaks my gluten-free streak. I’ve never been big on pickles, but […]

Wednesday’s Dinner

I ate mine without taking a pic, but this is my daughter’s portion. It’s just rice noodles with chopped tomato, basil, olive oil, and a bit of garlic salt. I was still hungry and really struggling with the pain of eating, so I needed something soft and filling and delicious enough to really motivate me […]

Tuesday’s Dinner

Tired from flaring and had no energy to put into dinner. Husband made food for himself and the baby (with gluten) so I did simple rice noodles with olive oil and pesto for myself. Oh- and some leftover red juice. Mouth feels very uncomfortable tonight. Praying for some overnight healing and a good day tomorrow.

Thursday’s Lunch

We had the bowl of grapes out all afternoon, so I’d been slowly working on those. Though my daughter ate most of them, I guess what I had was enough, since I wasn’t feeling motivated to come up with something for myself. I made my husband an awesome toasted sandwich- with sharp cheddar cheese, ham, […]
