  • Why on earth am I craving sweet things right now ?
    Finished up the carnitas with two eggs this morning, then had a medium chopped steak about an hour ago .... thankfully there is no sugary stuff in this house, because I would be seriously tempted. What is up this this ? Off and on now for a week or more, and no viable reason for it that I can come up with. Getting good protein and fats, so what's the deal ???

      • Finally going to the chiro this afternoon, a big thanks to my Mom for letting me take her appointment !
        Still feeling frustrating and not in the space where I want to be ..... working on getting back into that mindset again.

        • Guess both of us are trying to get a grip again! Hope you feel better after seeing the chiropractor ---- be good to yourself and eat healthy stuff!

            Gave a few days of relief .... already in pain again though. Meals are going great though.

            • Leftover dried sausage this morning with eggs .... decided to venture into the water for lunch and pan grilled some wild caught Alaskan cod with lemon. It was fair, would have been amazing if it didn't taste like fish.

              Sigh .... just not into fish. Crab or lobster, yes ....

              • If it tastes fishy, it isn't fresh!

                • I'm back on whole30 for July. And staying clear of all fodmaps foods too. The pulled pork has a little onion and garlic in it - but I have been eating it since Friday and haven't had any issues so I think I'm okay with those 2 things.

                  Back on the track cuz I too took the weekend off and ate all sorts of wrong things.

                    It was actually frozen, but for me any fish tastes that way .... lol. Taste buds from birth are all about the venison, buffalo and other wild game.

                      The only thing I have added back in is a little romaine and cucumber last week. So essentially I am doing the same, I had a lapse in my ongoing Whole 30 once I got past the second month, but its all good now.
                      I have some pork for carnitas that will go in the oven tomorrow, but without the garlic (allergy) and the onion (fodmap and possible allergen).
                      Went by the grocery store today for t-paper and fresh romaine, it was an absolute mad house there. The holiday tomorrow I suppose ....

                      You're on track now and that's what counts !

                      I did get some keto sticks, although I am not certain what color they should be at ....

                      • Carnitas were good, but I did have a reaction to them, fairly sure it was due to the chili powder in the rub. I am allergic to peppers, but prior to doing the FODMAP elimination, I had not noticed that the occasional use of a little chili powder was a big issue .... but at the time, I was also consuming things that I now know that I cannot tolerate.
                        Lesson learned. I am going to see what I can do to salvage the meat, rinse it, whatever, so that it is not wasted.

                        Had a cold meal tonight, leftover roast beast with romaine and a little cucumber. Tasty and not too heavy. Spent part of the day redoing the living room, moved all the furniture except the monster TV, cleaned and mopped the floors, and then moved everything around. I'm really liking the new look, it is more open and the entire room looks and feels larger. Finished my bedroom except for the floors, but that can wait until tomorrow.
                        Tackling the kitchen/dining room tomorrow and the studio during the rest of the week.

                        Sat down and did a little painting over the weekend, something just for fun and that was awesome. I have to remind myself to take the time to enjoy doing a little something something just for the fun of painting. Redesigned my business cards and have a new tri-fold flyer just about ready to run through the printer, so I feel like the weekend was productive and and somewhat restful too.

                        Still trying to come up with something interesting and unusual to do to the back splash in the kitchen. Don't want to go the usual route of tile. Ideas anyone ?

                        • stainless steal? bead board? hard to suggest when I don't know what style you like or what the "bones" of the kitchen look like.

                          Glad to hear you're doing so well with food. I had a little whole30 break over the weekend at the lake - but didn't go totally off the path. A little wheat and sugar, and a little alcohol. Mostly I was good. No fodmaps and no diarrhea

                            I am thinking about the bead board .... the wall I want to do is painted, but it has some deep cracks in it that although patched, are still visible. The house has shifted every summer with the drought, and so I need something that will camouflage the cracks. Appliances are stainless, and the kitchen is not super large, so I'm not sure about adding more stainless onto the walls.
                            I'm currently stripping the paint off of the cabinet doors. The wood underneath is beautiful and more than likely I will finish them with nothing more than a clear satin finish to show off the wood. The base of the cabinets is a bone/cream color. I used Valspar paint on it, but I can't remember the color name without checking the can. LOL

                            There is about a 12 inch space between the upper cabinets and the ceiling .... I'm thinking of using galvanized steel up there, just love the waves of it and it will make my old crockery bowls stand out. Style in the kitchen .... hmmmn, not sure that there is a style per say. I have the antique crocks in here, but it's not what I would call country style.
                            I've kept the main colors of the house very basic, the cream color on all the walls, white ceilings, flooring is the faux wood in creams, golden brown and brown. I add in color with other things. In the kitchen there are little pops of burnt orange, blue, chocolate brown and then some green (plants on the window sill). Two large windows in the dining room area (which is now the computer area) have blinds and very simple tabbed curtains in what I would call a pale grassfed sweet cream butter color. No curtain over the window over the sink.

                            That's awesome that you didn't experience any stomach distress ! I am still wanting sugar or something in the way of sweet .... that is just making me crazy !

                                My favorite are dates, but they are the kind of thing that I don't seem to control very well at all ! LOL
