  • The weight is dropping. I'm not being perfect on the no dairy thing, but I'm keeping it very, very low, and occasional. Today I had about a tbls of grated grass-fed cheddar on my eggs. Just barely enough to taste. I turned down Greek Yogurt again last night. Sigh.

    I miss Greek Yogurt. And Kefir La... something. It's kinda like sour cream made from Kefir. Labine? Yeah, that might be it. And cheese... dear Goddess, I have some swiss, and some cranberry Stilton in the fridge. And Feta.. way too much Feta... and some Bleu. Good thing we have a party next week... I can take a cheese tray!

    All is not lost... just misplaced for awhile

    • Labneh? It's a kind of strained yogurt cheese? Super yum.

      • Christmas can't get over soon enough.

        Between trying to get my pain med/sleep dosage right, and having way too many treats around (with reduced resistance), I'm bloated like crazy.

        I'll be very glad to get back to just meat & veggies. Seriously.

        • I hear you on that one. Not ten minutes ago DH said "I sure can tell when I stray from the way we've been eating. Not worth it!"

          Just think of it as a temporary side trip.

          • I've had a very stressful few days, and have not eaten my way through them! yay!!

            This is a major change for me.

            In other news, there is no real news. Carry on.

              I have a ham in the fridge, too. I think we'll have thanksgiving well covered...
              I really wish there was a "Like" button, duck wrapped in bacon sounds like something my boys would LOVE!

              • It ended up not wrapped in bacon, but it turned out okay anyway.

                • I don't know if you are avoiding dairy, but Grocery Outlet has an all natural mascarpone cheese in stock right now. Oh, yum!

                  • I am avoiding most dairy, and sticking to grass-fed for what I do eat... I'm still fighting inflammation. sigh.

                    I do love a good mascarpone..

                    At work, it is now "JANUARY", which means longer hours, working every day, and getting home barely in time to go to bed. Lather, rinse, repeat.

                    • I just dumped my Facebook account.

                      My time is way too precious to waste there anymore. FB has too many changes, privacy issues, sponsored posts, and the algorithm for sorting posts in the news feed is just way to frustrating. I'm done.

                      • Seriously?
                        Last week, it was the washer. Dear Husband fixed that.
                        This morning, it is the fridge. The freezer isn't, and the fridge is getting warm. Dear Husband has other obligations this morning, so the fridge will have to wait, and we just got a shipment of bacon! I'm fretting a little over the food in the fridge... it is nowhere close to freezing weather here, and sticking it all in a cooler on the porch may not work for long. Okay, it's 35F right now, that might keep it okay for a bit...

                        But I have to go to work. I feel awful for leaving this for my husband to deal with, but I can't diagnose these things, or fix them, and he can.

                        My eczema is also very inflamed. Has been all week. I've been sleeping okay, and have been trying to keep nuts & dairy to a minimum. We tried some Essential Baking GF bread - the label didn't have anything obviously objectionable, like legume flours or unpronounceable chemicals - but maybe my body doesn't like "bamboo flour".

                        • At those temps, the porch makes a very workable fridge (in fact, some of your stuff may freeze). In my part of the world, a lot of people use their porches or balconies as extra freezer space, and my garage makes a perfect extra fridge if we're having a party. I think your bacon will probably be just fine until he gets home--even if it's frozen, it's going to take a looooooong time to thaw if you put it outside in the cooler. Just make sure to critter-proof it or you may find the neighbourhood dogs have had themselves a bacon feast!

                          Bamboo flour? That sounds like a bad idea to me.

                          • Good news, DH has (temp) fixed the fridge! When the new compressor relay arrives, he will Fix it.

                            He passed his test, too.

                            • Yay for working fridge! Yay for passing tests! Yay for husbands who fix things and then Fix Them!

                              • I sure hope you've had some wonderful bike rides in this beautiful sunshine we've been having. You and I both know what a rare event this is to have this many sunny days in a row. I'm really going to dislike going back to our normal pattern.
