What I eat on a good day
1 cup cherry juice with ARA powder
2 eggs with beans, veggies, or fruit
A couple dried figs or prunes for a snack
Beef burrito with nonnie flatbread (see Flip It post), beans, salsa, avocado
Or salmon scramble (or some chicken or tuna) on salad, with lemon juice as dressing
Banana for snack
Beef with sautéed mushrooms or onions
or Fish or lamb chops
Broccoli or other vegetable
Sometimes a little rice, or sweet potato
Of course, I drink water and seltzer throughout the day, though usually not enough of it.
Sauteed Mushrooms A/O-nonnie compatible:
1-2 Tablespoons ghee
8 oz package whole mushrooms, cleaned, stems cut flush with top
broth appropriate for your type, I used chicken
Saute mushrooms in ghee over medium to medium-high heat until they brown and start to soften, add broth to finish cooking, add a little terragon to taste. Less is better if you aren’t used to the flavor yet, but it compliments the mushrooms quite well. Lemon juice would also be good sprinkled on top.
For me, the mushrooms add flavor to whatever meat (usually beef) I’m eating, for my type A husband, they fill the role of meat. Yes, he’s starting to cut back more on meat. He’s not too interested in the technicalities of the diet, but has realized that meat doesn’t agree with him or his metabolism, so I’m encouraging that, and starting to cook more with that in mind. My A son doesn’t like red meat, and loves beans, so he’s on track as well. With both of them I just try to introduce more beneficials, and find some that they really like before I start cutting out much else. Of course, they’re just happy if I cook!
My other goal is to cook one big batch of something good for my diet each day. Yesterday I made ghee and compliant refried beans (I posted the recipe a while back), today I planned to make more flatbread, but I may have to put that off till tomorrow. Next in line is to cook up more mushrooms and a bunch of buffalo burgers for meals on the run, then some brown rice pilaf to go with them. Then some more energy balls for my sweet tooth. I also want to try a recipe for nonnie-compliant almondaisse, because I miss mayonnaise. I’ll blog my progress.
Oh, there was one other comment I wanted to respond to...how much nettle root I take for allergies, I take 1 capsule twice a day, and I'm thinking of switching to stinging nettle leaf, from NAP and adding their Querticin. Right now I just take one from the health food store.
