and bacon dogs...yummmm! going to have to try that soon. those are 2 of DH's favorite things!
It seems bacon-wrapped hot dogs with onions and peppers are the hot thing in Mexican street food. Not that there's a lot of Mexican street food allowed in Santa Barbara, but it was allowed last weekend and that's where we saw it. It's really good. In moderation.

I do eat pizza occasionally (once every four or five months) but it's high-quality with real cheese. I chalk it up to my 20% and don't stress about it. I've tried homemade pizza with almond flour crust, but haven't been successful at getting it to taste enough like CW pizza from our favorite pizza place. I think part of it is that someone else is making it!
You make your choices, and you live with them. In the end, you are those choices.

after awhile of not eating any sugar or grains, you'll be amazed at how sweet fruits and veggies can taste. roasted red peppers are amazing, but apples and pears now are so sweet to me i can't eat them.
there is a recipe floating around on-line that uses cauliflower as a crust for pizza. it's really good, but so much cheese i only made it once.
myra's story was a good one and WOW she looks great.
hope for me yet, lol.
have been taking the dong quai almost 2 weeks, so it's probably too early to say for sure, but i feel less crampy (like, almost none) and my abdomen is less hard. it could take a few months for it to fully work its ancient chinese wonders. if this is the ticket and i can avoid surgery and more bungled cw intervention, i will be thrilled.
i'd be a vegetarian if bacon grew on trees.
omg, Cauliflower pizza - why didn't I think of that? I love cauliflower. I found two on the web that seem interesting - one doesn't use cheese in the crust and the other does. Neither uses any parmesan, but I think that might make the "crust" a little crunchier.

For any menstruating women, I'm struggling with intense carb cravings right now and my period is expected any day now. I can't have carbs because I'm doing an anti-candida diet. I've got L-Glutamine, but haven't felt anything helpful from taking it. I'm full, I just had a few chicken drumsticks and I had a big breakfast AND lunch today, but I still feel like eating. Any tips? I'm drinking LOTS of water.
Distract yourself. Go for a walk, workout, work on a garden. Do something active so you aren't thinking about food.
