|« Figuring it all out - for the sake of my figure!||The natural instinct »|
Thanks to Alan, Lola, Carol, Isa and Jayne for the spelling correction of smorgasbord. It was a delectable meal with every organic vegetable that I could carry home in a shopping bag. That's the easy part. I always have to think of a protein to throw in with the veggies so it's either pinto beans and basmati rice cooked a day earlier, canned wild catch salmon(no frozen fish allowed..too many polyamines), sardines, turkey, goat cheese. tofu, tempe. or soy cheese?
Hey, I have a question for anyone out there....when I look at the ingredients on any of the soy cheeses, it dismays me. There are a few ingredients that are an avoid so I end up standing there trying to figure out if the amount is either too small to matter or too much to be part of my diet. One of the ingredients is guar gum. I will check the package and get back to you.
But I did buy it once and grilled it on a rice cake...delicious..couldn't taste the avoid stuff at all...
So I started out by throwing some olive oil in a pan(on a low flame), garlic and then vegetables as fast as I could cut them. I hardly ever do things in an orderly way....its just my smorgasbord mind! And then after the veggies were cooking, I put a bit of liquid in and added some kale on the top.
So I have protein, carbs and fat when I eat every meal or snack. That's what I learned from reading up on the Zone Diet years ago...that with a gulp of omega 3 fatty acids is supposed to keep my blood sugar balanced...oh yeh, sure. The last time I saw the good doctor Peter D, he looked in my eyes and said my blood sugar was up and down.
Well, if he knew I rushed like he## to be on time....who knows maybe that made my blood sugar and cortisol level go up. Being an AB with a lot of emotion & passion doesn't help. And if I were an O, I might be complaining about my knees bothering me from running or over extending myself with exercise.
Enough rambling for now....
PS-Just had a healing experience from one of my friends who does shamanic work...very relaxing. She told me I have to hug more...hmmmm(well that is the summary after a more complicated talk) After she worked on me, I stuck her finger to find out her blood type...an A, that was easy...made a delicious meal for the both of us....that ended with 85% coco(dark chocolate) with strawberries, walnuts, pecans and almonds. There goes 'food combining'!
