ohhhh, that would be great for pancakes or any other baking recipe, Victoria!
Well I bounced up a little from my nearly 3 lb weight loss after going out to a celebretory dinner with relatives from out of state. It was a hot day in Jack London Square and I had a couple of drinks! Alcoholic ones. (no sugar) Oh well, I'll work it off today somehow...
I don't know what I;ll eat yet as I just got up....I'll be back to enter my food.
OK...brk: 2 eggs over bed of sauteed spinach. yum.

KK here, Day 30 grain free.

I made my own breakfast this morning since Lewis had a service call.  Funny how when I cook for myself, it never tastes as good as when he cooks. (That could be because I'm a "disaster" when it comes to mixing food and stoves. )

Breakfast was two scrambled eggs pan fried with white onion and green bell pepper.  I'm hoping he comes home in time to fix a good lunch.



Oh, and the scale "finally" moved after 30 days. I'm down 5 pounds.  Too many more to go to count, but at least I can feel the difference in my jeans.

As long as you can eat your own cooking (and don't burn down the kitchen  ), you'll survive...  

Congrats on the scale direction...

We've come close to losing our kitchen at my hands a couple of times.  I approach a stove with trepidation every time.

Just getting off the bad soda drinks (again) is an accomplishment.  I'll see how the scale looks in another 30 days.

Carrots? Black Dot missy!   

Lunch for us was a lunch/dinner of seared wild salmon, and sir fry onions & green bell pepper. (I didn't go shopping until late today so our vegetable choices were limited.)  I'm having a big slice of watermelon now as an after eats treat.

I'm going to see if I can get my friend to make me a "black dot" smiliey when she has time.  

I love the watermelon rind.  Are there any nutrients there?  I'll have to look up typebase to see what it says. Just wondering/spit-balling here.

Celery goes good with almond butter.  When I'm having a craving, that's what I have.

Funny!!    This afternoon, I got a rare 'food attack', and I just had to eat something.  I never snack, so this was really, really rare!!   

I ate two big celery stalks, spread thickly with crunchy almond butter!

KK here, Day 31 Grain Free.

Breakfast was...... leftovers.

Wild salmon, onions & bell pepper. Lewis always has basmati rice with his meals.  This is an improvement over too many slices of Ezekiel bread a day.... (with either almond butter & agave or agave, butter and cardamon aka )

Supplements I'm taking: Synergist, Activator, Phloxicin, ARA Plus, Deflect(2x day), as well as Calcium & O Polyvite (when I remember).

I still have a "tightness" (not necessarily pain) when bending in my R thumb joints and R D2,D3 second knuckle joints. Left hand still very good (thankfully)! Low back pain comes and goes, depending on how late into the night I'm

OK, I have been grainfree for 2 wks, with one notable exception (rice at my bookclub dinner). I am pleased that I have stuck with it, and this log is a huge part of the reason. I need accountability!
Total lbs lost in 2 wks: 3lbs.
And ...well...how many to go???...um,  for my initial goal, let's say 22 more lbs, then I'll reevaluate.
And I'm short...
but I digress...my log: brkfst: 1 egg, half a zucchini, sliced thin, some chopped onion, tsp. ghee, bit of sheep cheese, (not on my list) scrambled. yummmmm.
Thennnn, I went to a free sample class in pilates!!! OMG! I am going to be sore today...

KK here, In the "grain free" jail that is! Day 32...

Breakfast was Costco lamb chops dusted in rice flour and sauteed green beans. (This was ~for us~ an expensive breakfast!)

YESTERDAY.... I had leftover wild salmon for lunch and about five stalks of celery.  This was eaten way too fast or I would have been late for......

my appointment to donate platelets at the Red Cross.  I believe I'm well over 50 platelet donations at this point.  Usually, I eat lots of candy while watching my movie. (Jolly Rancher's hard candy they stock at the front desk.)  But this time, I came prepared.  I brought a bag filled with lady nails, pecans and walnuts.  It satisfied me perfectly.

Dinner was too many servings of fruit.  Fresh pineapple, fresh watermelon, (not a great one) and some pineapple juice.

I'm noticing that I'm not getting blood sugar spikes and crashes like I used to.   And one of these days, I might be able to do this   again...if I only had a trampoline, lol!

More today, and fabric organizing in the attic.

How often do they allow platelet donation?

I know it is 8 weeks for blood donation...

You can donate platelets as often as every two weeks, and in some cases, even sooner.  (Years ago they called me back in several days later because I was a "perfect match" for a patient at a nearby hospital.)  I'm a high platelet producer.  They usually are able to get a "triple draw" out of me, meaning three separate units.

I buy flax seed in 25 pound bags. I'm sure you're thinking: I use it in my hot/cold packs I .  

I've got to buy a bag soon, so maybe I'll use the coffee grinder to make some flax meal and try a flax

Going grain free has not been easy for me, and I've been eying that bag of quinoa in my cupboard lately. I need to give it away.  Every once in a blue moon Lewis would make spelt pancakes and I do miss those covered in agave.

It ain't easy.  I do tend to be a carbaholic. I really miss this big time.  There is a Humphrey's Frozen Yogurt store near my house.  I would get a soy vanilla with FOUR blends of frozen raspberries.  The clerks would always look at me like I was crazy and the yogurt would come out this very dark maroonish color. It was like having a bit of soy with all these raspberries.  Heaven.

My only sweet treat this past month has been fresh squeezed limes with Gerolsteiner & stevia.  If I do too much my stomach and bladder let me know. Too much lime and too much stevia.

I've GOT TO get some raw almonds so I can try an almond pancake.

I like Gerolsteiner with about an inch of cranberry concentrate (unsweetened, very tart) sweetened with stevia in a tall glass with ice!!!!!!!
I really tend to be a carboholic too..... ....and I no longer trust agave....its just so like any sugar, even tho they say it doesn't spike blood sugar, I just don't know.

Yesterday ended up (i was out on the way to a group) a salad from subway (with meat and a slice of cheese as well as veggies) and later a slice of "raw" foods style cheesecake with no added sugar. It sure was good.....but had avoid, coconut oil and coconut milk, probably. Wasn't too sweet, tho. Not condoning that.

This a. m.....chopped zucchini, one egg, bit of sheep cheese.
(yesterday tried pilates for first time! really kicked my butt!)

Breakfast was fried lamb burgers dusted in rice flour with cayenne & fennel.  Sauteed green beans.

I know my lack-luster, pace results are due to me not listening

to the recommendations.

One of these days I'll get up the energy, but today....   I'd rather while I

What's with all the sheep cheese Jayneeo?
