I use lime juice at home and lemon if we are out somewhere, but I don't drink it everyday because I don't seem to need it that often.  I've never had a problem associated with either.  I usually drink it tap temp or colder, unless I have hot tea.

Hi Warriors,
What's for breakfast?   I had my favorite (other than pancakes)  oatbran cereal with a dash of vanilla, stevia, raisins and peanut butter..with almond milk Mmmm..yummo. I  could eat pancakes or oatmeal every day...love it. I also had some scrambled eggs with chives for protein or I would get hungry all day long.

Lentils with a little veggies that I cooked overnight... sort of... I needed to add more water and cook longer so they might be slightly dry this morning.

Sounds tasty... For those of you looking for tempeh recipes, Christina Cooks has a couple of cookbooks with a lot of tempeh recipes. She's a vegan who's following macrobiotic cooking ..says she was cured leukemia by macrobiotics.. Notice.. that she looks like a Warrior..   Might be the reason.
Japanese cooking other than sushi is not a favorite cuisine of mine, but she has Americanized tempeh recipes in there. Even recipes for brown rice syrup..Some of you might have that and not know how to use it.

I'm at war with two bacterial illnesses right now (this lingering strep throat and now a sinus thing which isn't pretty), so I'm going raw for a couple of days and see if I can get rid of it without an antibiotic.  

So this morning I had a juice made by my beloved DH with celery, apple, pineapple, ginger root and lime.

For lunch I had some cucumber slices (straight from the garden) and an attempt at a nap.

For a snack I'm having a bowl full of almonds, peanuts, dried figs and dried currants.

I had some fresh lemonade too.  Fresh squeezed lemons, water and agave.  Yum!

Feel better Leanne. I never fought strep without an antibiotic. You're brave.    IMHO though, a person fighting infection needs protein.

Do you have colloidal silver?

I'm a mess with a dog bite wound (it is healing, but the actual puncture wound is kind of pussy and slightly pink (not tender)). I also am experiencing edema in my ankles and knees, the right one being worse than the left. The right side is where the dog bite is, and I scraped the back of my heel last night on a metal door as I was walking out (also the right). The swelling got so bad today that as soon as I was done grooming, I had to soak my feet in cold water with acv, then elevate them for a better part of an hour, then finally I gave in and took 2 advils. I can now see the veins in my feet, but they are still slightly swollen. I also had (what I think was) an overdose on EmergenC last week, and actually fainted while driving. No one was hurt, thankfully. To read more about that, go to the FS thread.

Hi Drea,
Yes, I read about you fainting in the FS thread. I posted a message for you.. I don't know if you saw it there.     For your wound, get Manuka honey on it right away. It kills infection like crazy where antibiotics have failed..it kills the flesh eating bacteria as well (MRSA)

Check out the photos..gross but makes the point of the healing power.

Thanks for the link for Manuka Honey, Mayflowers. Looks interesting. And yes, I did see your post. Your link was very interesting (and apropos). Sorry I didn't reply.

My legs were normal when I woke up from sleeping with my feet elevated all night, but after being up for an hour or so, the right one is now swelling again. Not as bad as last night, though. I'm drinking plain water and limiting my salt intake, as well as staying compliant foodwise.

No worries... ..  I noticed in the summer I get very bloated due to the heat. What happens is the heat makes the body retain water in case of a drought.. Efficient huh?    Not very comfortable.. The way to get rid of the bloat is to convince your body that you are not having a drought and drink a lot of water..no soda..(Lol..I saw the mountain dew..hey I love ginger ale..) The caffeine in the soda will dehydrate you, and also if you drink tea and coffee.  

Also, I wanted to add that I finally took Lola's suggestion and started body brushing after 4 years of not doing it..
I have a ex-broken ankle that stills swells up especially now..I noticed the swelling has gone way down since I been body brushing the last  two months, so I think this might help.  Thank you to Miss Lola..

I severely (so much so that I was in a cast for my HS graduation) twisted  my left ankle when I was 18 and then the next Spring, almost to the day, twisted it again (yup, another cast). It swells up too, but I've never made the connection to the warmer months until you mentioned it (makes sense since I rarely wear socks in the summer, but almost always in the winter). I used to body brush every morning. I'll start again to see if that makes a difference. I know my skin loved it. I stopped when I moved from CA to CO, where it gets cold in the winter. Now I live in NM, and it still gets cold (ha ha). If I make it a habit while it's still warm...

I just got a referral from a client on a ND in Los Alamos; not close, but may be worth a visit. My client "swears by" her, she says the ND has helped her tremendously with a until recently un-diagnosed case of diverticulitis? I'm not exactly sure what that is, but it sounded painful from Michelle's description. Anyhoo, I'm going to call this ND tomorrow to set up an appointment.

Divertivculitis, an infection in the diverticulum in the intestines..the little pockets in the wall of the colon that fill with stagnant fecal matter and get inflammed.from the food not moving fast enough. My grandmother had it. Most probably from being old, and an A and eating meat..which tends to not move quickly through the intestines..

This Warrior is very sad and depressed after his mother-in-law's funeral today.  No, I have not cheated, and will not.  Took my son to his play performance (as Huck in Tom Sawyer) and did a little shopping.  Got some baby Yu Choi that looks wonderful.  Plums, avocados, limes, scallions, all kinds of superfoods.  Asked the lady at the market where they get their Asian vege's and they said California.  It always looks wonderful.  Now doing some laundry.  Anything to keep my mind off today's events.  Too tired to do the dishes.  My mother-in-law was a terrific lady, never an unkind word to me, and terribly missed by all.  Got such a busy weekend ahead of me--cooking (then more dishes), mowing the lawn, running my son to his play, seeing him in his final performance on Sunday.  What else?  There's always something.

Sorry to hear about your loss Adam.  Good on you for deciding not to "reward" yourself for the pain you've endured through all of this.  

Speaking of super-foods, do you like mushrooms?  If so, can you find Mitake mushrooms in your area?  I highly recommend them.  I can't get enough of 'em.  

Peace be with you.

This is to be expected when losing a loved one...  It is good to be busy, especially in times of grief.  Enjoy your weekend, Adam...

Thanks, everyone.  Had some guacamole (can't get enough of it) and flax crackers, and then some refreshing cucumbers/onions/garlic/lemon juice/oregano/salt/water that's been sitting on the counter all day.  Garlic and onion are in both, and those help me sleep. Had my Methyl-B12 and L-Tryptophan, so hope to drift off to sleep soon.  Looking for a fresh start tomorrow.

Thanks for all the support, everyone.  Was a busy day yesterday, doing laundry, shopping, cooking, dishes, mowing the lawn, then going out to the blues club for a bit of entertainment.  A nice fun ending to the day.  Should I confess about the couple of little naughty little cheats I had?    

No matter, I'm still at 225, the lowest weight yet, and looking forward to work next week, so I can get back on my normal exercise routine.  Being home all week put a damper on my walking, as there is nowhere here that I like to walk.  

The freezer is full of basmati rice & lentils, and many servings of yu choi and gai-lan.  Will be baking up copious amounts of flax/spelt crackers.  Got some fresh new miso from Japan, so looking forward to sampling some of that.  Got plans to make some saag paneer with basmati rice today.  Haven't done that in a while.  Very compliant stuff.  

All is well, and looking forward to continuing my journey to complete wellness.
