Thursday

Had a weird feeling in the back of my throat/sinuses for most of the day. Felt kind of swollen, like I might be getting sick. It’s been there for a couple of days, but seemed worse today. Doing a sort of modified juice cleanse for the next 3 days. The last time I did the […]

Feeling really good today. Lip is healing well. Energy level is great. Frozen waffles leftover from a previous meal. Just threw them in the toaster, just like store bought. But way healthier and cheaper! With ghee and maple syrup, plus apples, kiwi, and cherries. We have a busy day today, so lunch had to be […]

Friday

Waffles and apples for breakfast. Actually made the recipe correctly this time. Topped it with ghee and honey. Lunch was an open faced black bean burger with tomato and sprouts, roasted beets, and fermented carrots and cauliflower. Second successful ferment. Woo-hoo! Made four jars of this stuff. When I get the dysbiosis in my gut […]

Wednesday

Breakfast was a yummy avocado fruit bowl with pears, grapes, and hemp seeds. I’d been reading my Clean Eating magazine and they had an article on homemade jellies and jams. They showed these jams on cheese and crackers. It looked delicious, so I satisfied the resulting craving with gf crackers (they do contain some milk […]

Monday

Still playing nurse today, though much less so. Baby girl is 100% better. Husband is much better, but still feels a bit feverish now and then. Gotta keep working on him. But he’s been up and about today, out working on the pool and poking around in the garage. And he’s playing his video games […]

Friday

Woke up feeling great again today. Until I started to pay attention to what’s going on in my mouth. Tongue is swollen, and upper lip is visibly swollen because of a lesion near the gum line. Thrush is still going strong, and there are lots of smaller lesions with the potential to become more problematic. […]

Woke up feeling great, despite not getting much sleep. My body didn’t cooperate with my attempt at getting to sleep early last night. But I think I may have gotten my toddler on an earlier schedule now, so that was the first step anyway. I’ll try again tonight. Had the breakfast bowl filled with brown […]

Wednesday

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 […]

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 […]

Sunday

My favorite pancake recipe. 1 egg + 1 banana. Done. I added pie spices and vanilla, but its totally unnecessary. We’ve made the switch to organic eggs, despite the cost. In the past, I’ve only purchased them when they were on sale (which is almost never). But I’ll be getting the public greenwise brand until […]

Sunday’s Lunch

Dropped the baby off at the in-laws and scarfed this down before heading to a Zumba class with a friend. This does have dairy cheese and chicken in it, which I am trying to limit. But I think the chicken is free-range and all that. I like that the bowl is compostable.

Thursday’s Breakfast

Bag of trail mix on the way to the gym. Spin class followed by yoga. Spin was pretty chill- worked up a sweat, but nothing too heavy. Almost fell asleep in yoga. Which is a good thing- my mind goes faster than my body needs to right now, so yoga and meditations help me tune […]

Thursday’s Breakfast

Quick smoothie before heading to the gym. Spent 45 min on the elliptical and 45 min on the treadmill. Felt really, really good. 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 […]

Sunday’s Snack

Munched on homemade popcorn, cooked in olive oil, seasoned with salt and nutritional yeast (makes it seem kind of cheesy). Had a hot chocolate (half coconut milk, half unsweetened vanilla almond milk, bit of sorghum syrup, and cocoa powder). And an alkalizing green juice. All this while holding my sleeping baby and watching a movie […]

Thursday’s Snack

Put together a snack mix following Elie Krieger’s recommendation of 2:1, nuts and seeds: dried fruit. Used raw pumpkin seeds, raw sunflower seeds, raw almonds, salted/toasted pistachios, dried figs, golden raisins, dried cranberries (sweetened with sugar), and banana chips (sweetened with sugar). And then divided it into 1/3 cup serving sizes, perfect to grab on […]
