  • I've learned an obscure fact: if you eat chocolate after eating a cucumber, it will be tasteless. Don't waste your good chocolate that way.

      That's rather funny. Chocolate post cucumber . Don't think that would occur to me.

      Regardless, point noted.

      • Leave it to me to crave cucumber AND chocolate at the same time.

          • Today's Tip

            Look at what you are eating right now - today, this week. What has crept into your diet that doesn't belong there? While keeping in mind 80/20 principles and not beating yourself up, I am willing to bet you are eating or drinking something on a daily basis that can be eliminated.

            • Thanks for the recommendation. I didn't get home in time listen to any of the presentations yesterday.

              On another note, Menopause the Musical was fantastic. I haven't laughed that hard in a long time.

              • Speaking of menopause, guess what happened to me yesterday? Forever youthful, that's me. I keep thinking I am in menopause and then 'my friend' visits. Can't believe it! Luckily the symptoms are very mild.

                  All I'll say is, it's nice to have company in the land of never ending periods. I hope we won't be here much longer.

                  • The only good thing (well, realistically I know it is good to have late menopause) is that the actual period is not onerous, more of a curiosity than anything. It's weird, though, as I feel I have mentally moved on from child-bearing years but my body hasn't. I do, of course, realize that having periods and ovulating, conceiving, and carrying a healthy child to term are completely different things - not that I have any intentions there. I realized my hot flashes had disappeared, then I started to feel I was cycling again - some breast tenderness, appetite changes, bloating. (So charming, these symptoms!)

                    Listened to all the PaleoCon presentations today, once again they are all excellent. Robb Wolf, Denise Minger, a good talk about eating disorders and other issues faced by female athletes by Stephanie Greunke. I was thinking I wanted to listen to them all again and was sad that I don't have time, and then I realized that I have purchased them and can listen any time I want!

                    Did a thing last night that had unintended consequences. I was having a seriously stressful night at work - it has been awful lately, not because of my workload or anything really directly about me, but things happening around me with my co-workers and the patients that are just really negative and distressing. I can't say too much because obviously it is a HIPAA violation. But I have a bag of individually wrapped 72% dark chocolate squares in my locker and I enjoy one every work night. While I was going through some BS I suddenly told myself I was going to eat all the chocolate I wanted. And so I did, eight squares. Felt rather ill afterwards and now the thought of eating chocolate is yucky. How long will that last, I wonder?

                    • Not long. It happens to me with pistachios.
                      Took baby kitty to vet today and he was very happy with her growth.
                      She kept wanting me to hold her and would reach for me when one of them would take her.

                          At 8 PM I couldn't keep my eyes open anymore - the past work week has kicked my bum. So I went to sleep, dreaming of a peaceful, restful night - and woke up at 11 PM STARVING. I've had some hard salami, two Applegate hot dogs wrapped in homemade paleo bread, a salad with homemade vinaigrette, herbal tea with coconut milk. I think this qualifies as a paleo binge.

                          I like Chris Kresser also, I was reading his blog regularly but I've fallen off. Must revisit.

                            • Tip for Today

                              Throw out all your old SAD condiments. Mayo, salad dressings, ketchup. I guarantee you they are full of everything you should be purging from your diet. HFCS, gluten, corn, soy, and probably all in the same bottle. Either make your own (really easy and economical), buy expensive gourmet-type condiments after carefully scrutinizing the label, or do without. I'm a real hard-liner on this one. Just say no to SAD condiments.
