  • so, my first question is, do you make your own ice cream, and pineapple salsa?

    wonder if it is thickening agents? Have you tried to make your own gelatin. I use Great Lakes Kosher Beef Gelatin (order online), then you control the ingredients.


    I am personally more prone to looking at ingredients in the brat, jello, ice cream etc. than thinking it is from nuts or cauliflower or other simple food. Of course I am not a doctor, so you need to take what I say with a grain of salt (assuming that isn't the culprit)

    • I have to watch portion sizes of all cruciferous vegs or I get stomach aches.

      Paul Newman pineapple salsa is so delicious; does have a smidge of sugar in it,
      But, oh, how I/we love it.

      • The ice cream is store bought, but all real ingredients. The pineapple salsa was bottled. I made it for the girls, and only ate the leftovers because someone had to. There were preservatives. Not the best choice.
        Today is much better with the pains. Luckily, I KNOW that sashimi is fine for me.

          • I would lean toward Demuralists opinion too - more likely something in the brats, jello or salsa than a food that you have eaten lots of before and has no additives. Hopefully this stuff will soon be in your past and just a distant memory.

            • Surely a long walk balances ice cream! Right?

              More faxing of W-2s yesterday. The verification company is having a hard time getting callbacks from some of Honey's past employers, so we need to send in the documentation ourselves. But the requests are coming in dribs and drabs. So much easier if they had asked for it ALL at one time. I'm getting very familiar with the book section at Kinko's. (Okay, I've only had to go twice, but there's an attendant adrenelin[how the heck do you spell this?] rush- This information is NEEDED! The job DEPENDS on it HURRY! Do it NOW!)

              Luckily, Kinko's is right next to the sushi restaurant. Yes, I sent the faxes first!

              • Getting ready for the weekend

                We are having games day here, so I have been busy cooking and tidying. Spinach dip with celery and jicama, strawberries and angel food cake, devilled eggs, zucchini a la Siobhan, olives(for others, not me ). Last minute things will be heating up the chana marsala for our vegetarian friends and salmon patties for meat eaters, and whipping some cream.

                The tidying, not so interesting. I should really have people over every week, to make me keep up with all the CLUTTER!

                Here was yesterday. Too much time in the car, which led to no walking, but I had a great time with my friend, and got Middlest's shots taken care of.

                Up at 5:30

                9:00 4oz salmon with 2t mayo

                2:30 2 eggs

                6:00 large spinach salad with 2, count 'em, 2 bacon(all thanks to you, Skink), vinegar

                Water: 8 glasses
                Pains: 19

                Bed at 10:00

                Okay, need to zip and get these dishes washed and put away! Ciao!

                • Food and Games

                  Had a very nice day yesterday. All the cooking got done, but not all the cleaning. Just the way it should be. But we had some sad news. Two of our friends are being sent back to India by their employer, a year ahead of schedule. We'll miss them. We've got them for another month, then that will be it.

                  Up at 7:00

                  8:30 8oz cod fried in 1T butter with 2T hollandaise(the last of it)
                  1C coleslaw

                  12:00 1/2C pork with katsu sauce
                  1/2 apple
                  1/4C seaweed salad
                  1 slice muenster

                  3:15 onwards
                  3 devil eggs
                  spinach dip with jicama

                  strawberries
                  cheddar
                  chocolate chips
                  a few baked potato chips (and a few more)

                  Water: 8 glasses
                  Walking: no
                  Pains: 13 (and none until after noon!)

                  Today I felt a little dizzy in the afternoon. It went away as soon as I ate something. I wonder if I was having a little sugar-crash after my higher-carb eating yesterday afternoon. Strangely, I was not really hungry.

                  My weight went down a nudge this morning, which I am thankful for. I am hoping I am on the start of another losing period.

                      Sorry they are moving away. Is there any possibility that they could be back in the future?

                        • Sadly, they are not good enough friends that we would keep in close touch. Maybe Christmas cards once a year. But we always have a good time together. And we did on Saturday. Lots of laughter. We're going to get together again next weekend.

                          • Cathching up

                            Having a hard time finding the time to get on the computer. Weird how that happens when you are trying to accomplish things. Things happen, just not internet things! I have gotten writing and sewing done. Even- gasp!- housecleaning!

                            I am not going to take the time to input my last few days. Here are the highlights.

                            I have stayed primal, though I ate way too much one Down Day. A pox on party leftovers. Last Down Day I tried a fat-heavy meal plan, and it worked pretty well for controlling hunger. This one, I am trying a protein-heavy plan. No, I have no plans to try a carb-heavy one!

                            My pains are dropping off at a good clip. I think whatever was wrong inside is healing up. My second blood tests came back normal, so we're chalking that low calcium result up to error or chance. My blood sugar was still low, but again, I had been fasting for 30+ hours, so no surprise there.

                            Now, I am off to read others' journals!

                            • My issues with leftovers are putting them away, once tucked away I usually don't bother them, usually.

                              • Protein-focused versus fat-focused Down Day was harder, but still (almost) do-able. And the almost was vegetables, so I don't feel guilty.

                                Here's what happened:

                                Up at 7:30

                                11:30 4oz catfish fried in coconut oil
                                1t home mayo

                                3:00 the same

                                5:15 again

                                7:00 greens cooked in broth with bacon

                                Day's calories~550

                                Bed at 9:00

                                Water: 9 glasses
                                Walking: no
                                Pains:10!

                                I think my next Down Day (Monday) will be another fat-focused one. I am skipping Saturday, because I will be at GERMANFEST. Sausage, sausage, and again, I say, sausage! No beer(I'm driving), yes cheese if there's anything good. The inside of an apple strudel is a distinct possibility. And if there is rote grutze, I'm falling all over it.

                                That said, I am not planning on stuffing myself, only on sampling. I am bringing Tupperware for any leftovers. The perfect day would be lots of good tastes, and a Tupper full of leftovers for Honey.

                                I have a vague plan of not getting on the internet until I have done my minimum writing for the day. It has happened twice so far, and changes the whole make-up of my morning. But...writing is getting done!
