    • WOW.. feels like a Monday but its not.

      Observations:
      -Sleep is better. I have woken a couple times in the night but end up falling right back asleep and now its WITHOUT advil PM.
      -I am really liking the caffeine free. I think its making a difference.
      Feeling thinner (hoping I see this on the scale March 1st )

      I made kickin' green chili stew. I call it stew because its more meat than broth. Its awesome! I even put a few jalapeņos in it.

      On the dehydrating side:
      last night I dehydrated zucchini chips, onions and jalapeņos. My mom bought a huge batch of jalap. so I dehydrated them before they could go bad. I REALLY like the onions I dehydrate, I even put some in the green chili.

      • I got the apples to work, so I got a bag of those and a bag of pears for Dh. I will try zucchini next.

        congrats on the sleep, I really believe it is crucial.

            • Oh.. I forgot a non-scale victory. This is the FIRST year I did not have even ONE small piece of chocolate for Valentines Day, even though I was swimming in it, it seems. Not a taste and not a lick. Unheard of for me!! However, when I get a chocolate urge, I pop a little cocoa nib in my mouth. Its the uttermost bitter chocolate but hits the spot without derailing me! I keep a small container on my desk.

              • where did you find cocoa nibs, I can't find them anywhere.

                p.s. congrats on the non-scale victory. That is huge!

                • Whole foods has them. You can the rest of mine. DH and mom won't eat them b/c they aren't sweet & I don't need them.

                  Yay for the nsv and sleep. Mine is better on lchf, but still not great. I haven't really teased out any patterns yet.

                  How were the dried jalapeņos? Did they become super hot?

                        • I started it back 2 days ago, and it is really helping with the tummy issues as well as the water retention. I forgot that the reason I started it was so that I could minimize water retention and thus keep BP down. Gotta get on it, cause I do not want to take those meds.

                              • I use a french press but you can use a loose leaf tea ball. Place like 1T or so in the tea ball or in my french press I put @ 3T, pour in boiling water and let steep. It will not look like standard hot cocoa, its like a chocolate tea. Then save the used nibs (freeze them) and put them in other stuff. I can imagine they would be incredible in your fat bread. It might taste like a pastry.
