    Thursday

    Supply teaching job again today. 4th in a row!
    I grabbed a wedge of quiche on my way out the door (before 7) and ate it in the car.

    I got a new tea the other day, Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice. I LOVE the smell of it!
    The box says "Brimming with cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, a cup of our aromatic Bengal Spice tea is like a trip to an exotic spice market in a faraway land. This adventurous blend is our caffeine-free interpretation of Chai, a piquant Indian brew traditionally made with black tea. Try Bengal Spice with milk and sugar for a true Chai experience" (I didn't add the sugar)

    Ingredients: Cinnamon, roasted chicory, roasted carob, natural flavours (??), ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg.

    It's as good as it sounds

    The students were very good today. That's always nice. Last class, grade 9 math. They were done the work half way through the class so we got out a Star Wars Monopoly game to play. After school I went to the chiropractor.

    I don't want to jinx it (knock on wood) but I think my back may be getting slightly better

    I stopped at an antique store and had a second look at a dresser that I like.

    When I got gas I did NOT buy candy!

    I got home and had a small sliver of quiche. And then I had a handful of pistachios, and maybe nibbled on some butter while I was cooking BUT, for the 4th day in a row, I had NO WINE! I know! I had mineral water in my wine glass.

    We had pan fried fish (cod maybe??) fried potatoes and zucchini, and a cucumber/feta/olive salad. With half of a mango for "dessert" I made another Bengal Spice to take to play practice.

    I left my iPhone at home!! I felt so...naked...without it.


    Something I ate in the past few days doesn't agree with my skin. For the 1st time in months, I have a pimple on my chin
    It appeared yesterday morning...I hope it's not the Cacao Nibs Of course, Monday and Tuesday I was experimenting with high fat, so I had more cream and cheeses than normal...maybe it's that.

    Language barriers again. I'm thinking why does she want candy when she has gas?! We call it petrol here so it took me a second to work it out.

    HAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I'm giggling out loud over here!

    I see no issues with nibbling on butter while cooking. I may have done that myself on more than one occasion. If it keeps you off the candy/sugar/whatever sweet crap the dragon is taunting you with, all the better.

    The skin issue may not be food related, perhaps stress, with your back pain lately, plus beating yourself up about the dietary indiscretions. I've been experimenting with the oil cleansing method for 2 weeks now, and my skin is doing very nicely. No more dry scaly patches that tend to crop up this time of year.

    That is my focus right now - eliminating the evil sugar

    I suppose that means I shouldn't have had the mango?

    Love Bengal Spice tea! It's a staple at our house.

    What's wrong with nibbling on butter while cooking? I do it all the time. EAT MOAR FAT, or words to that effect. Within reason, of course.

    I mix coconut oil, cocoa powder, stevia, and almond butter. Sometimes add an extract of some kind for a new twist. Or very finely ground dark coffee (that one is simply divine). Very occasionally I will use a bit of honey instead of stevia, but I really am trying to keep all sugar consumption very low. Not inexistent, but low. But I am thoroughly afraid of diabetes, and seeing as I have some control over that, I take that control. Yes, I cheat sometimes, but by aiming for almost no cheating, I attain to just a bit of it. Good enough.

    Yes, inquiring minds want to know about the oil cleansing. My swimming habit is leaving me scaly and itchy, despite my practically drowning myself in body oil afterwards.

    I eat butter all the time. Love it. How can you NOT eat butter?
