Welll, we burnt the amaranth pie crust....Lewis realized after he burned it that he shouldn't have "precooked" the crust.  Maybe next year we'll do better.

I didn't eat any crust....besides ya couldn't because it was all burnt lol!

A tiny bit of rice flour in with the gravy.

The string beans were fine...they were steamed but the mashed taro turned out terrible even with almond milk and a bit o added.  It's just too strong a nutty flavor to make into mashed potatoes.  Tastes great as a "touch" added to a stew or deep fried in rice bran oil.

So, not that successful of a day.

I'm sorry to hear, KK. My day wasn't much better. I ate fresh steamed green beans with lemon juice and salt, then roasted some organic butternut squash with evoo, cinnamon, and more salt. After eating both, I made some whole milk yogurt with cumin and dipped some celery stalks. Then I got very nauseas and had some slight diarrhea. I didn't throw up but it was touch and go for a while. Peppermint tea soothed the tummy. After a nap I ate the rest of the yogurt dip with the celery stalks and no problemo. A couple of rice cakes later (now that I'm off the wheat, no more soda crackers for me). Some red wine and I'm calling it a day.

I got a major craving for popcorn, but rather than brave the icy cold to walk 150 yards to my neighbor's house, I ate a small bowl of frozen peas (cooked) with ghee, garlic powder, and nutritional yeast. Still hungry I made a bowl of frozen (cooked) artichoke hearts with the same topping. Could have been worse, but no corn!

Way to go Drea!    It's one of the reasons I've avoided the movie theatre lately, and that's a very favorite thing to do.  

The thing that even Lewis noticed was, even though we over ate pie, we didn't have a blood sugar crash from over eating.  We feel surprisingly good.  Stuffed, but no blood sugar crashes.

Lewis said, "I'm so glad you insisted we eat a compliant meal.  Now I see the difference." (Agave vs white sugar) He used to think that adding a bit of this, or a bit of that, (avoids) didn't make that much difference.  But now he's really on board with the Gatherer plan.  

So in that sense, the meal was a long-term success.

What also helped was we didn't have much at all in the way of carb loading.  He didn't have massive amounts of rice and we usually have had mashed sweet potato in the past.  Since the taro came out so bad, we only had a few bites of that....  Too bad he boiled up ALL our taro!  Now I have to get more.   When we fry taro, it really tastes good.

KK Maybe you could mix the leftover taro with egg & something else & make croquettes?

Too bad about the pie crust Must be hard trying to do traditional Thanksgiving, without grains etc? You've done well & so great that Lewis on board!! We want our loved ones to be happy, healthy & pain free...

Good job Drea on avoiding the corn!!

We dumped the taro.  Couldn't eat it.

The pie crust would have been perfect.....except he followed directions for an amaranth pie crust that said to pre cook it in the oven.  He over cooked it at that stage, and there were burnt edges he had to scrape off.  Then when we added the pie and cooked again, the crust REALLY burnt all on the bottom, all the way through.  But he liked the taste flavor.  First time he's ever had amaranth, and even asked if one could cook it, like in a pourage (sp?).  I had to remind him, that one serving was 1/2 cup, cooked.  He often eats easily a cup or more of basmati rice at every meal.  Hopefully he'll change, and not be that reliant on stuffing himself with rice.

The funny thing is, all while we were mixing ingredients (for the pie & for the cranberry sauce) he kept saying it's not tasting right and we needed to add "real" sugar.

I kept telling him, "This IS real sugar!  The other stuff is highly processed c**p!"

Good job, KK and Drea! And I felt that I did fantastically also, though I did eat sugar! DH and I made a killer apple crisp with an all-nut crust! (DH insisted on brown sugar... ) ) I woulda used agave....but after the dinner of turkey, a sweet potato dish I made, with butter and pineapple bits, and spinach salad, the dessert did me no harm, blood sugarwise!
Mainly.....I ate NO grain!!!!!! Zero....tho' DH had rolls, mashed potato, stuffing, etc.

Well, as I mentioned in another thread...I have rediscovered carob & have been eating it all week, simply mixed with ghee Makes an oh so yummy fudgey treat Ribbit makes it with added agave & recommends it as a spread on ricecakes but in the inimitable words of Pooh Bear (possum) "so as not to be greedy, I didn't have the "bread" AND I have lost over 3lbs more this week!!!

Cannot believe it But my scales & clothes are not lying... I also went out to dinner one night, but just had entree & main & no dessert & we chose to walk over 7 blocks from where we parked & back...

Don't know yet...& interesting you ask that It is only neutral for O nonnies & for all other BT's but beneficial for O secretors

I have actually been mildly questioning my secretor status, since when I got it done they eventually contacted me weeks later to say they'd lost the first one, sent another, found the original & then reported on that
My doubting relates to whether they could get accurate info from old saliva

If I was a secretor after all, I would be an Explorer, which would still explain my over sensitivities But I guess when I run swami, it may be all academic? It may be (& probably is) that I am just weird...

I should run it for both perhaps to be sure, but certainly the unintentional carob experiment is interesting seeing as I have struggled to lose weight previously

I guess I should change my signature lol Done

just keep on gathering, Possum! (gathering superfoods!)

Oh, speaking of carob, I made a treat...tahini, carob, agave, plus some unsweetened (avoid for me, but not for a nonnie, maybe) coconut and mixed it up into a kind of "truffle". (Small) Yum.

Isn't it? I used to eat way more cocoa & prefer more bitter things but now the sweetness of the carob, plus the ghee satisfies me not to eat too much of anything... Weird but

I tried chia seeds again this morning (just added water) & funnily enough had hunger pangs a few hours later... Still didn't overeat, but usually I don't feel like food again after my carob & ghee & have to make myself eat lunch

Where do you find carob on the swami list? It must be neutral for me as it doesn't appear to be either bennie or avoid.

Good thinking . I have a laminated copy near my desk, and I forget to look on the computer.

That's good re sleeping Not sure an inch of coffee is that big a deal to have to give up? Depends how strong it is I guess?  If you were an Explorer it might be more of a problem...

I'm working through day 38 of sugar and wheat-free. I hardly miss either anymore. I'm still stiff in my hands/arms/shoulders, and I still wake up snotty. Not sure what I'm eating that's causing this. It's been going on since before I gave up the sugar/wheat.

In full disclosure, I do groom dogs and knit on a daily basis.

Drea,

Have you ever been allergy tested for dog dander?   

Do you knit with polyester yarns, wool yarns or all types?
