|« and now, back to this life on Lake Wobegon||Painful week »|
Hey, Fellow BTD's! I'm VERY sorry it's been so long. Neglecting a responsibility here... I'm also really excited to announce that I went grocery shopping with my mom today! This means... I have food in the house! And, I'm gonna eat some! I can't wait to start incorporating solids back in... I'll have to take it slow... Little bit 'o' discipline required...
Here's the list:
Yellow onion (organic)
Ground turkey (frozen, organic, free range)
Cherry juice (organic, not from concentrate)
Pineapple juice (organic)
Soy milk (organic, unsweetened, no gums)
Sugar snap peas
Maple syrup (organic, grade B, no formaldehyde used to extract)
Golden flax seeds
Dried dill (organic, non-irradiated)
Now, an explanation of it all...
I'm just gonna use the grapefruits for juicing tomorrow morning, maybe tonight if I get crazy... The pulp I'll freeze or something to make a sorbet of sorts...
Most of the veggies will just be used for juicing. The apple too.
The soy milk, I'll wait a few days before I drink... Protein.
The avocados will supply the main source of fat... Be a few days though...
The blueberries, I'll thaw and eat like applesauce... Maybe add a bit of cinnamon, some soy milk, and a 'lil ginger powder too... Sounds good.
The flax seeds I'll ground up in the coffee grinder and mix with the pineapple/cherry juice for a nice 'lil... Something... He he... More good fats... Omega 3's, 6's, and 9's baby...
I think it's obvious by now what the lemons, limes, and syrup are for... I'll have to taper off of this "lemonade" stuff... Maybe just have a glass or two a day for another week or so. This'll be so I'm not eating too much, too soon... I think...
The squash I'm looking forward to baking. I should get some organic butter to make Ghee with too! Mmmmm... Baked squash with ghee, and some Herbamare! A few sprays of Bragg's Liquid Amino's, and some nice olive oil. Yeah!
And, the turkey! I know I said I was gonna lay off of the poultry, but, it was organic! Furthermore, it was on sale! I could scarcely believe they even had the stuff. I picked up 4 tubes. As I was fasting on my Birthday, and didn't get my annual "Birthday Dinner." My mom and I decided that she would make me a nice soup! I cannot wait to try it... She is going to make a soup base with water, olive oil, the turkey, and herbs/spices/seasonings, etc... Then, all the veggies listed above! A little of each actually! It's gonna be SOOOO good! I'll just drink the broth tomorrow, the soft veggies will be perfect for the next couple of days too! I dunno if I'll actually end up eating any solid bird. I'd love too, but... Maybe I'll just let the family have that... A huge batch to last me a few days, I hope...
To answer a few Qs:
Yes!!!!!! Wheat Grass is a SUPER BENEFICIAL for EVERYONE! Don't worry, and don't quit! Especially A's! Eat it. Juice it. Take a bath with it! Whatever... Just don't juice TOO much of it... Potent stuff... I'd stick to a 3oz serving at a time... If possible, mix it with another , more watery juice, like celery... 50/50.
Bragg's Liquid Amino's you ask? Here's the scoop. They're an excellent source of soy isoflavones, All amino acids, vitamins & minerals, and, even a spot 'o' protein. To top it all off, it tastes great! NO added alcohol, NO added sodium, NO added wheat, NOT fermented (for those sensitive to fermented foods)... It is, essentially, the PERFECT soy sauce. Plus, it's cheap! Get some! Cancer fighting, great tasting, non detrimental... What more could you ask for in a condiment? I buy it bulk, and just refill a small spray bottle. That way, I can just spray it on foods. Awesome...
Later Gang! Thank you for all of your comments and questions. Keep 'em comin'. Lets me know someone out there gives a rip. Inspires me to blog more too... Peace, Compassion, and Love.
