Oops. That wasn't worth it. Tonight I was tempted by some ice cream, and I gave in. I just had a couple bites, but it gave me gas and a runny nose. On top of that I had one sip of crystal lite. Boy oh boy, the combination of citric acid and aspartame is a bad one for me. Just one sip was enough to give me just one tender bump on my head. Strangest reaction, I've always gotten it, I used to call them pepsi bumps, but they feel just like I got hit on the head.
I'm still learning my lessons day by day. Such is the life of a rebellious, stubborn non-secretor
I did make a nice dip for some buffalo hot dogs today. I was tempted to have ketsup, but instead used my olive oil/lemon juice/trocomare salad dressing, and added some nutritional yeast, and stirred it up. It kept separating, so I just stirred it with the hot dog each time I dipped. It was tasty, and reminded me of those awful but tasty hot dogs with the cheese embedded in them. It would be a nice sauce for boiled eggs, methinks.
Once the next step happens, and I get pregnant, I will boil a bunch of eggs each week, then "pickle" them with a dilute mixture of that dressing, and keep them in the fridge so that I'll always have a convenient protein on hand to eat first thing each morning. That was the only way I could combat morning sickness with my first pregnancy, but at that time my convenient protein was yogurt. This time I'll need to find something else, so I hope this strategy works. It certainly sounds like something I'd like during pregnancy. I cannot stand plain boiled eggs, but I've always liked pickled eggs, strange as that may be. No wonder where my son gets his strange tastes from...how many 2 year olds like artichokes, okra or plain sauteed onions? He may never try some of my strange combinations of avoids that I used to eat, poor, lucky, little guy.
