I drink it because I love the flavor ;) It makes the most wonderful iced tea, too. What I'm drinking right now is roasted dandelion root tea. It has a really satisfying smoky/sweet flavor. I actually haven't noticed it help with bloating (because I don't have any) but it seems to make my skin look really smooth and fresh. It was recommended here by knifegill and I researched it a bit and decided to try it....love it! It's a nice change from plain water.

What have I eaten today?
Too much!! ;)
I ate [B]pig tongue[/B] last week in case anyone cares.
It was pretty good, sort of texture you would expect from a tongue I guess.
I had not eaten any thing still now only taken 1 full glass of delicious almond milk shake. After this drink i don't feel hungry for 6 hours.
Well I'm just starting this past week or so (just got the book in the mail), and I'm coming off some grains...so I did LESS oatmeal than usual (only 1/4 cup, working my way down) w/ prune and pineapple...a little natural peanut butter...and a big ol' nitrate-free sausage! Whoo, yum. Oh, and coffee w/ full fat creamer (but has added sugar...I bought it before reading more about PB).
What to eat when you're in a hurry and forgot to prep anything the night before:
Breakfast: 1 piece of cheese, 3 hard boiled eggs
Lunch: 3 more hard boiled eggs
Dinner: ... likely to be an omelette. And BACON.
[QUOTE=jill.fitnessforlife;1167722]So, my dilemna is that I eat breakfast within the first hour of waking and then eat every 3-4 hours until bed time a balance of complete protein, carbs and fat. My problem arises with the fact that I really do not enjoy cooking and eating has always been something I have to do. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy eating food that others make but not so much otherwise. Because of this I find it difficult to stay on track because I get annoyed and bored with cooking. This can also mean that my carbs aren't always the highest of quality. I end up eating whatever is quick (too often a quick protein bar) because I don't want to make something even if I took the time on Sunday to prepare some things in advance. I know, I need to suck it up because it is important to my health but day in and day out I get in my own way. Anyone have any suggestions? I am open to someone telling me to get over it and just "do it!"[/QUOTE]
I agree with the smoothie suggestion. I hate making/eating breakfast...I make a smoothie, then a big salad with some meat for lunch and meat and veg for dinner. I only cook once.
[QUOTE=KimchiNinja;1168299]I ate [B]pig tongue[/B] last week in case anyone cares.
Breakfast: 7 pullet eggs with a few mushroom slices fried in coconut oil. Sauerkraut, and raw goats milk.
Lunch: Apple, Banana, Pastured pig bologna (rare find at my local farm), and raw cheese.
For dinner: Pork tenderloin in mustard, and ham wrapped asparagus, and an avocado with bacon salt.
Might pull the cow tongue from the freezer sometime soon, Anyone have any good ideas on how to prepare it?
