Rain last night and this morning, so my walk to Aldi will be a little squishy. But I am going! I want to get meat, and pineapples to put in the dehydrator. And get my walking in. And if I don't go, then that money vanishes into Honey's pockets. And though he deserves more spending money, NOT at the expense of REAL FOOD!
Yesterday was back on track. I felt full, and not like I was thinking about food all the time. God bless high fat. Here's how it went:
9:30 1/2C greens gratin
1 1/2 bratwurst
1:30 1/4 of a quiche
2 slices liverwurst
4:00 3 devil eggs
scrapings from cloud bowl
6:00 beef shank and marrow
rotkoehl(red cabbage, onion, carrots, celery, apple, vinegar, coconut sugar) SO GOOD!
Cream Cheese Clouds( 1T butter, 1oz cream cheese, a little vanilla and sweetener)
Water: 9 glasses
Bed at 9:00
I got my period four days early. Surprise! No wonder that chocolate was so appealing. It came with a tremendous headache, which I think was made worse by coming off my small sugar high. But I powered through. Cut some squares of fudge this morning for the girls' lunches, and had ZERO desire to have any. It just looked like brown stuff to me.
A word about those cream cheese clouds. I used twice the amount of butter called for. (Took out a whole stick instead of a half, and found cutting a mushy stick of butter in half to be too much for me at the time.) They turned out fine. Also, I have never used the full amount of sweetener called for in the recipe. I whip the other stuff up, then start adding little bits, tasting as I go. This batch had 4 packets of stevia, and 1 tablespoon of coconut sugar(mostly because I bought a jar and wanted to try it out). Hmm, I should probably go add these notes to the HFLC recipe group thread.
NEVER MIND! I went to the group, and saw that a full stick of butter is the correct amount. Good thing I am such a LazyLou, or I would have shorted myself on the butter! Horrors!
