Ooooooookkkkaaaayyy....I need to get real here!!!!!!
Not a good day foodwise! Really enjoyed my party...I mean, book club.....I cooked for 8, and I ate the soup which had rice in it and I ate the baklava which was heavenly!!!! I sent the remainders of all the food home with my son who stopped in after the party. Tomorrow I return to the straight and narrow.

Well in contrast I was better today...Didn't stop for anything other than water for breakfast & then had a couple of mouthfuls of (wet) chia seeds* on the way to work (I added water to them before leaving)

After settling in at work I had a water & then a hot cocoa made with a dash of diluted cream (my version of half & half)
Then another cocoa before lunch, to fill up the gap...Should have had more food but boss always likes to have a late lunch

Lunch was sardines in olive oil on cos lettuce 'cups' sprinkled with Himalayan salt followed later by another cocoa...  

Had several bottles of spring water over course of the day & made my hot drinks with spring water too...

*I don't think they rate as grain do they?

Now for tea; I'm starving!!

Had more lamb again, like last night...but this time had peas with some butter, instead of lettuce
Enjoyed it & went back for more peas... Then I finished off with a cocoa

Possum, I think of chia as seeds, not grain. How do you react with them?

My tummy is smaller today! I noticed it when I stepped into the shower. I hope this is the precursor to greater things coming! I can already tell a slight difference overall (less puff).  

Unfortunately, my arm muscles/tendons are still sore on my right side. I'm right handed, so I tend to favor this side. A couple of weekends ago a couple of dogs yanked my arm hard and even the Astaxanthan I've been taking for a couple of months isn't helping. I've been taking Traumeel, too, but nothing seems to be working.

That reminded me of the Kashi commercials.

What's your end goal? Not that you have to stop there, just curious.

Lola, the pomegranate soup is just with the bottled juice....its really good, full of fresh herbs. But...also rice. So all that food is now out of the house and I have begun my day like so many others, with 2 eggs.
Whew, Possum, you went without actual food there, for a big part of the day.....but no big deal...I'm starting to doubt the 3 meals a day plus snacks model. I do it, mind you, but I rather admire my DH's approach, which is 2 eggs in the morning and nothing till dinner. (oh, if I could.....)
KK, 50 plus days grainfree! Way to go!

Weight loss is my main focus.  I'm determined to make progress, but it's been quite slow.  I'm thinking it might not improve until I'm hiking in the hills for 1.5 hours every day.  Sigh.  I hate exercise.  That's my delima.

I'm really sure it doesn't help weight loss though That was just me being disorganised
I slept in, then spent too long in the shower & on the internet before work, had to answer a phone call, then had to put oil in the car, & spent some time trying to sort out my skin...
Hmmm not sure the oil fume helped there...

KK I'm still trying to work out those chia seeds.. They satisfy, fill me up & keep me going really well... But they can block me up if I don't exercise & drink heaps & heaps & in the end I'm still not sure re the mould issue with some foods.

I had a spoonful (left over from breakfast) before bed last night, had some magnesium (epsom salts) & drank some water...One area on my cheek was angry & red this morning but it had started to react after tea, so I think it was the peas tbh They are higher GI than I would prefer...

No problem with bms this AM, but they could be firmer... When I was in the Sates I had really good sized ones with all the varied food & exercise I was getting & it was easier to drink heaps 'cos it was so hot!!

Good going you guys!!! Now to go organise myself before work *sigh* Running a little behind again I wish!!! rofl

Lunch today was sauteed broccoli florets in evoo, with fresh ginger root, fresh garlic slices, and ume vinegar. Oh yum. This is one of my all time favorite flavors. And it's all bennie. Lemon/sea salt water.

I also made some cranberry sauce: whole cranberries (so glad they're in season) simmered with a can of pineapple chunks in 100% pineapple juice. It's tart, but I like tart!

Just as well you are female

I ended up eating the rest of the chia seeds for breakfast, with a cup of cocoa & it  kept me satisfied with the addition of another coca, plus a bottle of water, till a late lunch again...

Couldn't think what to pack for lunch so I grabbed a can of sardines & the rest of my lettuce as I was going out the door...I followed up another cocoa & some more water, but about 4pm had to go in search of more food, as I'd noticed feeling a bit nauseous
Could simply have been hunger 'cos after a generous serving of roast lamb which one of our friendly food vendors in the mall gave me (I'd asked for a small taste ) I felt so much better

Now to go cook some tea...

KK here. Day 56 of of my grain free   

I guess you could call me a for the G2 grain-free life.

Weight loss is 7-7.5 lbs total.  Kinda slow, but at least the scale is moving a bit more since I'm walking hills every other day and the flats the rest.  So, I'm either getting 2 miles of flat terrain walking or 3.5 miles consisting of several steep and gradual hills.

Breakfast was seared salmon (tiny bit of oil, little bit of water in the pan), a touch of my mayo... (Vegenaise: grapeseed oil variety)...maybe a teaspoon; it's got a few avoids in, but the amount is small.  Steamed white onion & red bell pepper.  I'm trying to get used to cooking vegetables without oil.  It's a hard transition after eating them cooking in wonderful tasting fat for too many years.

KK,
You are the Queen!!!
I would highly encourage you to fry stuff in ghee! or butter! Ghee really holds up to frying. (Or sauteeing....) but for quick stuff (egg) butter's good too. I am into this Irish butter that is from grassfed cows...Kerrygold!!!!! So delish....full of CLA.....you can taste the difference....its subtle...
..when you are grainfree you need more fats to give you a full feeling...so I've heard. And if you don't overdo it, it won't stop your weight loss. Again, so they say. (All the low carb diets say)
Possum...lamb is very good for us gatherers.

I had Victoria look at our fat intake via frying.  Too much cooking oil, so we are trying to cut back.  We eat a lot of Lamb that has fat in it, eat beef on rare occasions that's cut thin and fried up like bacon that has too much fat in it, we eat salmon that has fat and touches of our Vegenaise when Lewis makes salmon salad and we probably eat too much almonds, walnuts and pecans that have fat.  So in cooking, we are trying to limit and get used to the taste of food without it.

We used Ghee for a long time and I know it's good for us but we don't care for the taste of Ghee vs Rice Bran Oil.  Ghee is not a GT diamond food and Rice Bran Oil is.  And, we can cook at higher temperatures with it.

Hope you can get used to the less fat KK They say your taste buds change... I need a fair bit of fat with my other food as I don't do nuts - I react to them all except maybe pecans which I haven't tried yet & since I'm not sure of eggs I don't do a  lot of mayo I'm thinking that when my gut heals I will be able to tolerate more...

Having made sure I ate more yesterday it did feel good when I did my BM this morning Nice fat banana shaped Scales were also down a lb or so...

Just as well eh Jaynee but I worry & think I need to mix it around a bit? Trouble is I do so well on it as it is not fed hormones, antibiotics & is grass fed etc & I am not so sure re our turkey farm...
I do eat beef when Mr P is in town, but since he is away at present & often, if I have bought &/or cooked lamb there is only me here to eat it Not that I mind...
Now off to devour that lamb chop that is waiting for my breakfast...

I do support keeping the quantity of added fats from ballooning out of control.  I also support getting healthy fat every day so that our systems work well.  It's just good to examine our habits and get a realistic perspective on what we are actually consuming.

Trying to eat foods with no fats can be counterproductive if it doesn't taste good and we end up with food cravings or eating too much of regular food in an attempt to satisfy our fat needs.

Just eyes open, that's all.

Managed to get some grass fed beef mince tonight but will have it Sunday as we are out for Christmas work dinner on Sat night...From the peek at the menu I have had, I am torn between the lamb fillets (surprise there?) but I will have to forego the pistachio crust... Definitely will avoid the "Deep friend basil infused calamari & chilli mustard"   But quite interested in the "Turkey, leek & feta baked in filo pastry, citrus salad & cranberry" but would order a normal salad...

Ended up hardly having much breakfast this morning as I had eaten dinner last night at 10pm so just wasn't hungry... Had a cup of cocoa with dash of cream & a tiny bit of lamb & some lettuce...

Had 4 small lamb chops at work with lettuce & a black cocoa later in the afternoon...

Got home late & opened a fresh pack of pecans while I thought about dinner...Had one but I am sure they tasted rancid so will return them Yuk!!

Had 3 more small lamb chops, with lettuce & tomato & a dash of olive oil...Followed up  with a cocoa with cream & some chia seeds soaked in water with whipped cream & cocoa added & a shot of Baileys as a treat!!

So not missing grains & feeling good!! Hope you guys are going well??!!

Are you eating much in the way of vegetables there, Possum?  

Besides a little lettuce and tomatoes, hmmmm?

Ummn did you read my signature below
I have/had peas & raw beetroot ocassionally?? But it's not exactly a huge variety...Yeah I know, I should eat more... The lettuce is good dark cos or romaine lettuce & heaps of it, but I would like/need to explore more vegies...I love veges too...Must get some asparagus - will be having some tonight at the restaurant

Trouble is I reacted to the peas - had heaps of those and with my foray into allergies & adding up stuff myself, I am pretty sure from my reactions I am salicylate sensitive & that cuts out a lot of veges.. Now with my searching re moulds in foods (which I think may have even more relevance to me ) even mung bean sprouts seem dodgey...

I can't do carrots, capsicum or pumpkin, & am yet to find an organic source of celery I used to love that & live on it, till I looked at "the dirty dozen" In yours (or anyone else's) opinion would I be better just eating what veges I can (limited as it is) regardless of pesticides for now?

I get so paranoid now about fluoride in water, pesticides on veges, hormones, grain feed & more in meat, that where I can, I avoid them - even to the point where I used to limit my water if I have run out of spring water...At least I have now found a 1.5 litre bottle for $1 I can easily buy near work that is NZ spring water...

I think I know, re the water, it is a big key to my weight loss (as per my other post this morning) so I am committed to that one...especially coming into (what counts for) summer here

I lost another lb since yesterday even though I forgot to mention I ate some dark chocolate before dinner (it was the closest thing to grab after my rancid pecan experience)

Still sugar/wheat/alcohol free (although the alcohol is just a by-product of the other two) on Day 16. I managed to go to a friend's house for the afternoon and a lunch and didn't ingest any of the above. There were avoids like tomatoes and peppers, but oh well. Those don't bother me for some reason like potatoes do; at least not so I can notice.

I'm hoping my resolve will continue beyond the 30 days for the sugar and the wheat. I realize that whole grain wheat is a diamond, but I can rarely find it in its whole grain form when I'm not doing the preparing/cooking (meaning commercially processed or eating out). It makes it difficult to eat out because I love Mexican (and live in New Mexico) but corn is out as well. So I trudge on over to WF to get a $9 salad from the salad bar (back when they offered larger containers, I was known to get a $15 salad ).

Great going Drea!

KK Here, Day 58, grain free.

I was wandering the aisles of one of our nearby Asian markets and found.... "Water Chestnut Flour."  Small box for about 3.00  I could make probably a batch of pancakes with it though, lol! I think it was that carb craving demon trying to get me to eat something carb laden again.   It's still there, under the surface.

Breakfast was lamb burgers fried in 2 tsp rice bran oil w/white onions.  Steamed asparagus.  The asparagus isn't too good this time of year. I think I will forgo getting anymore and just have frozen peas.  Better taste.

Out shopping with my husband  ... he bought a bag of salted & roasted pepitas at one of the mediteranian markets we hit.  These were a very small, round looking variety, and I'm sure the oil used was an avoid .  We ate too much when we should have stopped somewhere and tried to get a leaf wrapped burger.  Now I'm having lunch way late.

He is having difficulty with his knees.  We think it's tendonitis of the patella.  And I had to have an argument with him about buying a "single" Fuji apple.  He hadn't had one in a long time, I had to keep reminding him that this single apple would NOT help his knees heal.  He reluctantly listened to the message.  He really wanted that apple.

Good going you guys!! I gotta say, it is tremendous having this specific thread to report in on...it really does make me more responsible, knowing I am gonna make myself accountable

Saturday, I had some lamb chops & some chia seeds for a late breakfast & actually forgot to eat lunch...as Mr P got back from Tokyo & wanted to have a nap...
We were then heading out at 5.20 to give a lift to a work colleague for pre-dinner drinks before our Christmas "do"...so it got a bit late to eat by the time we got up again

We ended up even later for drinks, (so I avoided eating nibbles there) as the work mate kept us waiting longer than expected & also needed us to go back, partway there, as she had forgotten her phone!! Aaah the things you do But it was all good...

I'd pre-enquired with the restaurant if I could swap some of the avoid vegs etc on particular courses & had checked out the online menu in detail so I wouldn't get caught out...

Managed to avoid the bread, & for entree, I ordered turkey in filo with feta & leek (swapped out citrus salad for cos & some other salad green)...which was tasty & I gave most of the filo to Mr P..

I then had sirloin steak with béarnaise sauce & green salad & asked for avocado instead of the gourmet potatoes!! That was an excellent move as the steak was divine & the (almost entire) avocado they put with it, went so well with the greens & the sauce!! Yum yum!!! I was in seventh heaven

We shared a dessert as everyone seemed to be ordering one & went for an individual (cute & quite small) mascarpone cheesecake & Mr P ate half of it & the accompanying strawberries, as well as all the crust

I didn't have any alcohol, except I just remembered, in the afternoon I'd had some Tia Maria & some more Baileys to decide if I'd take anything for drinks...Had a bit of a minor skin reaction a little while later & couldn't decide if it was the liqueurs or the fact that after that I used a face wash with wheatstraw in it...
I think it was more likely to be the liqueurs (although not entirely sure) as I have used that cleanser quite a bit before..& the Tia maria was very very sweet

Have managed to lose a total of 4 & a half lbs so far this week & am seriously thinking, that I may be more explorer than I suspected The weight is not proving hard to lose especially as I am now avoiding those environmental toxins, like mould in food...
