Still sugar and wheat-free (day 53). I made some cranberry sauce yesterday and did add a bit of date sugar . I also made some vegetarian chile using up several jalapenos (avoid) I had in the fridge. I was testing out using tofu rather than ground turkey meat (I don't eat any animal meat anymore), so I froze a block, then defrosted it in the fridge, then crumbled it into the chile (jalapenos, red onion, cumin, garlic, lemon peel, lemon juice). After the first taste, I managed to eat the whole batch. I'll make it again, but maybe "browning" the crumbled tofu first in the spices, then adding the onion and chile. I'll probably add bell peppers, too, since they've been on my beneficial swami (but I only noticed very recently, because they used to be avoids). I've been avoiding bell peppers since 1996 .

Oh KK, of course date sugar is different...

You know: corn sugar - now that is a real avoid!

Beet sugar, cane sugar, date sugar - they are all wonderful by comparison...

But my personal fave - maple sugar - that's the real good one.

Date sugar, at least the kind I have, is made from pulverized dates. Nothing else. So I figure it's just like eating dates, which are in the Lara Bars I eat. Technically, it's sugar, but not white sugar, and not too much of it anyway.

KK here, Day 96 grain free.  I'm in the zone of grain-free living.

Lewis is also coming up against the realities of living without his massive three times a day amounts of white basmati rice.  He needs to eat more VEGETABLES.  After the unpleasant morning he had here ---> I think he's finally understanding when I sit down at the table and tell him "You didn't cook enough vegetables for us."

I had to forgo breakfast this morning to make the subway train on time, to get to downtown to cover a hearing in a civil case. (This is where convicted murderer Phil Spector is suing his first ~there were eventually a total of 10~ criminal attorney for the return of his RETAINER: 1 million dollars.  The judge has not yet thrown out the case.  Looks like they will go forward with discovery and a trial in March of this year.)

When I finally got home, (about noon) I fixed myself a quick meal of canned tuna with homemade mayo & reheated vegetables (onion, zuchinni, sweet anise).

That hit the spot, but I'm still a bit hungry.  I think I'll wait until Lewis gets home so he can make us some TARO!  Taro-taro!!!!  Lewis found some very large taro in the Galleria Asian store in North Hills/Chatsworth area.

We fried taro.  It blows our oil portions for the week out of the water but the taste is worth it!  I like it sliced a little thick so it's like eating wedge fries.  Crispy on the outside and nice and mushy on the inside.

Oh, and missing my walk yesterday, I manage to get about 2 miles in today walking from the orange line bus to home.  I decided to do that rather than pay another $1.50 to take a bus 1.5 miles home. Hopefully, another walk tonight.

So, sorta like Agave, but something better, because you already eat dates.  Got it!

I like combining exercise with daily activities; saves time . I bought some rutabaga and turnip and have been wondering what to do with them for a week. I've been avoiding the old standby of roasting them in the oven. I may try the stove top route.

Hmmm. That sentence just made me realize how hungry I am. I had a three egg omelet this morning with parsley, sauteed red onion, and feta, but that was at 8am. For now, it's got to be a Lara Bar.

Great...  Save some cash and get beneficial exercise at the same time...  That's using the noodle!

No walk last night, but a walk this morning in a light mist, not quite a rain.

Yellowtail for breakfast!  

We "think" this is the type of fish that Dr. D says is a superfood for Gatherers.  Looking at the Wikipedia entry for Yellowtail/fish (click on the yellowtail link) there are many, many different types of fish that are called Yellowtail.  We think the fish we are getting is commonly called the

California Yellowtail

We're also having stir-fry onions & zuchinni.  Lewis is a zuchinni fan. I'm an onion fan.

you two are really sticking to it, KK!
the taro sounds really good.
Drea, I used to love tofu cooked that way.
I went to a party last night and had some wine, some cheese, and NO cookies, NO crackers with yummy dips and spreads.

TARO.
Deep fried taro yesterday was ALMOST like eating french fries! Way yummy. Too much fat and loads of flavor.

And all Lewis could say ~while I was dropping the taro slices in the pan of rice bran oil while he stirred them up and turned them over and kept checking the oil temperature with a thermometer ~ "This is the type of fat/cooking of foods that causes all the carcinogens they warn us against eating..."

My reply: Do you think we could get a deep fryer?

Hello,

Breakfast this morning: 2 eggs omlette in olive oil...
half tsp molasses
a splash of black cherry concerntrate into my supps after-meal beverage

Lunch:
A handful of pecans (1 ounce), ground in my ex-coffee grinder
8 grams pecorino cheese
Romaine lettuce
7 ounces wild atlantic salmon, cooked in a little water, olive oil, with ground ginger, turmeric, paprika, garlic, and few parsley twigs.

Plan for supper: rice flour porridge, steamed broccoli, 1-2 tbl almond butter with carob powder.

This looks all right, but yesterday I had huge quantities of peocrino and gouda cheese (brought yesterday from the market) and of dried apricots.    In the morning I weighed myself - 1kg gain... I have to stop racing and moderate my pace. My challenge is to regulate my food quantities Going out for another modest walk out of doors

Heartwarming! (I use this word frequently...  )  This soup is a swell idea, I've just taken frozen chicken breast out of the freezer to the fridge to thaw! I have the ingredients, that's what I'll do with it!

I think O's don't do lentils, but I just made a fabu soup of lentils, celery, red, green, and yellow bell peppers, carrots, onions, ginger, garlic, cumin, curry powder, sea salt, rutabaga, and turnip. It smelled so good while cooking (and I was too hungry) that I didn't wait until the lentils were fully cooked before sampling! Delicious!

Full disclosure: I melted some baking chocolate in the microwave, added some walnut pieces and a bit of agave. O-M-G! Not sugar, but so good.

I mean make your chocolate treat in a saucepan...(instead of a microwave)
I was serious, but having a joke to downplay your need to fully "disclose"
Doesn't sound like too bad a "slip up"

Good, eh?

Next time, add sea salt. (almost as good as Lindt dark choc w/sea salt)  A nice kick.

I've been thinking about adding a touch of ground japano chilies for a real to see if it tastes like the Lindt w/chile.
