Dinner last night was take out Chinese. I was at a friends Birthday party at a hotel... They ordered out so I submitted as well. Chicken w/vegetables including: Broccoli, carrots, water chestnuts, bamboo, and green and white onion. Pretty good. I think the sauce on it may have had some cornstarch in it though... Probably MSG too... Woops.
Had a snack of pumpkin, blackberries w/cinnamon, and raw Spanish peanuts late night while I watched part of the new Lord of the Rings w/my 'lil bro. He's 12. Good movie. Cinnamon is excellent for balancing blood sugar, especially for diabetics/hypoglycemics. 1/8-1/4 tsp. a day should too... Probably wouldn't want much more than that though... May irritate the digestive tract...
Up pretty early today... Breakfast was eaten right away... I usually like to take a couple of the Polyflora 1/2 hour to an hour before I eat breakfast... Dig the lemon water in the morn before meals too. Gotta keep those probiotic critters in balance and get the digestive juices flowing. Don't do them at the same time though... The acid will kill the beneficial bacteria.... If you're going to buy an over the counter probiotic, make sure that it is high in bifidus... If you're an "A" anyway... Didn't have time today though. Ate an avocado w/ Herbamare, dill, and garlic powder, and a small bowel of the Ezekiel Sprouted grains cereal w/soy milk. Yum.
Went to work. I'll spare you all the deatils. It rained all day today so it was REALLY busy... Kept cool. Lunch was a cup of cooked pinto beans, a half crown of broccoli and a grapefruit. Had some ginger as well.
Had a big dinner. Another 3/4 cup of pintos w/sauteed onions, raw garlic, raw ginger, and carrots. Had big handful of walnuts, more broccoli, and two big slices of watermelon for dessert. Pretty full... May have a glass of red later tonight.
Stay cool gang. If you're feeling stressed, try a supp or two from Dr. D's stress or cognitive protocols. My fav's are Ashwaghanda, a good ginseng blend, and a good multivitamin (preferably Polyvite A). Meditation is an absolute must for us A's. Try chamomile and L-theanine before bed. Much love.
