Breakfast: Butternut Apple Bake (4 oz roast turkey, 1 c steamed butternut squash, 6 oz diced apple, 1/3 c non fat dry milk). Didn’t hate it, but didn’t love it…Seems like it ought to be made with ham, but salted pork with nitrates is not on the food plan.
Lunch: 4 oz broiled salmon with Seafood Magic, 1 c brown rice, 2 c grain free tabbouleh ( 2 c chopped parsley/grated carrots/diced cucumber, 1 T olive oil, 1 T lemon juice, 1 clove minced garlic, 1 T dried mint, Herbamare or salt substitute to taste)
Dinner: 4 oz roast turkey, 8 oz red potatoes, 2 c Carrot Cauliflower Tarragon Soup
Metabolic: 1 c unsweetened soymilk, 6 oz frozen fruit, 20 drops liquid sweetener
Okay, I don’t know where to put this info, but I’m pretty sure it’s from healthy eating. Remember those intense hot flashes every 2 hours? And I’ve had no monthly cycle for over a year, so that’s the medical definition of menopause. Not only have the hot flashes ended for the past few weeks, but yesterday my cycle started again! Mixed feelings… maybe it is a sign of being healthier, but I wasn’t missing my little friend.
Painting and cleaning for a couple of hours will have to suffice.
Remembering more and more step one – ways I’ve obsessed about food and weight.
Still feeling the neck pain come and go, so it’s reminding me to slow down, relax, breathe into the area of pain; also to turn away from doing and focusing on things I don’t like, and put energy toward things I do like. Mixed results.
