I feel for you ribbit.  It is nice to get out and not worry about the kids for a little while.  Just finding a babysitter is like 3/4 of the battle though.

Does your daughter know GiGi?  

Yesterday I ate at a Greek restaurant with my family and had Lamb.  It was very good but I over ate and it sent me into a coma for about 2 hours.  Hehehhehehehe.  It was all compliant except for the blueberry cheesecake at the end.  I think if I would've skipped that I probably would've been fine.  Or at least not so drained.  I don't think I'm processing my proteins too well and that cheesecake probably had all kinds of things I shouldn't have in it.

I don't know who Gigi is, so it's likely she doesn't either.

My little AB and my big B also do the "coma" thing.  We use Emergen-C to pull them out of it.  You might want to try it.  Happens when they eat avoids.

GiGi is a book about "God's Little Princess".  She'd probably like it.  My daughter loves it.  There are video's too.

Emergen-C, hmmmm....

It's a drink with vitamin C in it?  I think I've seen it on the TV.

Yeah, it's a powdered mineral drink (in little packets) and most of them have vit. C.  The sports drink doesn't have vit. C, and that's what we give everybody (except me) because it doesn't have fructose in it.  The flavored ones with vit. C have fructose.  If you're a non-secretor you shouldn't have fructose.  We didn't do the secretor status on my AB daughter (can you  imagine trying to get a little girl to spit that much?), but she was still having some issues on the secretor diet.  So I switched her to the nonnie diet and lo and behold, all her lingering issues cleared up (red eye circles being the most obvious).  So look for Emergen-C products, and then look for the green box that says "Sports Drink" on it.  It's the only one that makes a liter of drink instead of just a cup.

I've had a good result from ordering fajitas without the tortillas.  I explain I don't eat wheat and ask if I could get extra beans.


My SWAMI diet is a blend of BTD and GTD Explorer, but I'm not totally compliant.  Also I try to choose foods that have a Low Glycemic index.  DW and DD are A+, probably also Explorer.

I had Mexican on Friday.  Taco salad, but with no corn chips/taco shells.  There were tomatoes, which aren't an avoid for B-nonnies, but I don't like them raw so I scrape them off.  There was cheddar cheese, and I think a bit of refried beans (pintos), but the rest was ok.  I also had a side of rice.  It was reddish colored, but I don't know what was in it!  I was already feeling a little icky, so it's hard to so if it made me worse.  I think I'm fighting off a bug: the flu has been going around in this area!

The thing about the meat in taco salad is that it usually has a sauce added to it.  We really don't know what's in that sauce.

Even the steak in my fajita probably had dextrose and/or maltodextrose to provide a more juicy / savory experience.

But I'm happy if I can have a meal that's completely GFCF when eating out.  And low GI with a few beneficials.

Drive55, alot of people up here have been sick.  Me included.  This last week I've been getting the chills / hot chills, aches and pains.  Fever.  But others are having similar symptoms so I'm probably fighting the same thing.  It doesn't help that I've been up and down for so long that it's hard to know if it's something new or old or what.  But it is what it is.  Hope you feel better buddy!

My husband always has his corn reaction after eating fajitas.  We asked once upon a time what they fried the beef in and they said, "Corn oil."  They agreed to fry it in butter for him, so now he can eat there occasionally.  Too bad I can't.

I went out tonight for date night.  After losing my most reliable babysitter, I needed the break!  We had a part-time babysitter, so I could catch up with some work and such, but she quit yesterday.  I thought that would be hard on the kids, but it was hard on me instead.  I wanted to cut back her hours anyway, and spend more of that time with my kids, but didn't plan on her quitting cold turkey like she did, and right before tax time...sigh, it's not worth hiring anyone, nobody is as reliable as the Mama, and I fooled myself into thinking she might be.  Back to self-sufficiency, and that's nice, but today it was hard.  Oh well, more money to keep for myself (food storage and paying off debts at this point).

There are a couple neighborhood girls that I can call and usually catch one for date night at least, so tonight I got one and we went to that same Japanese place (I never got sick last time, though I ordered more carefully this time and looked through my plate before eating)  I also ordered a seaweed salad.  I'd never had one before.  It had sesame seeds and sesame oil, gatherer black dots, but with all that beneficial seaweed I had to try it.  I also had the steamed veggies, so it was a vegetarian meal.  

It didn't agree with me as well as home-cooked superfoods, but it was acceptable for tonight and no really negative after-effects.  I think next time I'll make the first suggestion though...my husband gets to eat out all the time for business, for me it's just once a week.

I was right, I was getting sick.  I felt it coming on Monday, and yesterday was fairly miserable.  Today has been better though.  It seems like my poor roommate has been sick 2 weeks, so no surprise I caught it, but at this rate he will still be sick once I've kicked it.  Hurray BTD!  Today I actually felt well enough to go jogging, so I did in the hopes that I would rev up my immune system and sweat that bu**er out in the process!  I'm sure I will still need some extra sleep tonight and probably tomorrow night too, but I expect to be well again by Friday.

Speaking of aches, I did have a strange ache in my right side yesterday, just below my ribs, but after a big BM it's gone.

Drive55, that seems to be the case with this thing going around up here.  My sister has been up and down.  She'll feel better, and then not so good the next day.  It's been about a week.  That's kind of how I was too for a week and a half.  I've been feeling better the last two days.  Hopefully it continues!

We just had a cold front move in Wednesday.  It was about 77 (high) Tuesday, 68 (high) Wednesday, and 43 (low) Wednesday night.  Brrr.

I guess I needed to be knocked down a notch, I was getting cocky about not getting sick when everybody I know is!

We had Thai last Saturday.
Only changes requested: Mango salad (hold the peanuts please)
There were a few visible black dots but didnt stress out about it.
May be it is more of a challenge for nonnies...
