Music - Just a Gigalo (I Ain't Got Nobody Song) by Louie Prima
Mood - I need coffee........
Oh my gosh.....I'm so tired!!!!!!!!!! I've really been wanting to write blogs for the past two days but so much has happened and I just have too much to do!!! Enjoying some Arrowhead Mills Peanut Butter on organic rice cracker while I type this. Eating pretty compliantly the past few days - here's the menu from Friday Dinner and Saturday:
Rosemary and Garlic Goat (Carlos fixed it and let me relax - very sweet of him!)
Wild Brown Rice
Batata (it's a Puerto Rican kind of yam - very yummy)
catechol supplement and chamomile tea (super stressful day at school - Catechol's listed for O stress relief at NAP but since we AB's release the same stress chemicals as O's, I figured it would work....and it does.....with AMAZING results - I use it at school at least once a day)
Lemon Water (of course)
Leftovers from Dinner:
Wild Brown Rice
Snacked on peanuts and one oatmeal current cookie a little later that morning....
green tea and vitamins
sip of flat cane juice root beer (*Whole Foods makes soda with no corn syrup!!! get some!!!*)
one blue potato chip (Terra brand)
Roasted Veggie and Goat Cheese Pizza
(Picked off the corn and red pepper)
Organic Wheat and Organic Whole Wheat Flour, Water, Oat Bran, Olive Oil, Honey, Yeast, Salt
Tomatoes, Water, Basil, Tomato Paste, Onions, Crushed Garlic, Slat, Sugar, Crushed Red Pepper
Low Moisture Part-Skim Mozzarella, Goat Cheese
Roasted Corn, Roasted Eggplant, Roasted Zucchini and Roasted Red Pepper
Cup of kefir
salmon sausage cooked in tamari and olive oil
I'd post more menu's but this is all I wrote down when I had time this weekend. This is in NO WAY a balanced diet - I definately need more vegetables. Also, I let my soda become flat (doesn't come that way) since we're not supposed to have carbonation. But, the funny thing is, I've preferred flat soda all my life and everyone thought I was a loon. Figures, right?
On Sunday we went to the beach (lovely time by the by....) and some of us were hungry so, I was able to convince the car to stop by Trader Joe's in Oceanside on the way there (I was amazed they all said yes!) And, in a rush, I picked up their most compliant looking wrap, (too much chicken in that store.....grrrr!) the Portobella Florentine. Very sweet, very yummy, but it did contain some avoids (cornstarch, gums) and I noticed I was quite gassier than usual. It must be from a milk product in it, I always get like that with avoid milk things. But cream cheese and riccotta should be fine I kept telling myself. However, I woke up the next day with a dreadfully stuffy nose. I never noticed the "increased mucus" problem us AB's share with the A's until this episode. It was really apparent this time and most people thought I had a cold at work on Monday! (I know I didn't).....Just read over the ingredient list again and there it is.....third ingredient is "cream." - how did I miss that? Won't be doing that again. The lesson learned - take more time to read the tiny ingredient lists, it's worth it.
I have so much to talk about but I must go - I want to finishing orgainizing the wrapping paper corner and we have to go to a family function tonight. Why did I marry a man with a big family.....there is ALWAYS something......:-) This is quite an adjustment for someone with a small family of 7 people I really talk to and is spread out across the country - Oregon, California, West Virgina and me, myself and I in NY - not so easy to have family get-togethers unlike the 80 or so Velez's in the NY area (I'm not kidding - this family is HUGE and in one place!). A bit trying at times but everyone's very loving so it won't be that bad.....just a little much since I'm used to something much different.
