Been a busy day. I woke up hungry for a change but was right in the middle of trying to get a dehydrator full of plums ready to go so just ate a cold sausage, a few macadamias and a lovely cup of tea with cream and stevia. Got a load in the dehydrator, decided to mix some ripe peaches and a banana and a whole bunch of plums together and blended them - got a whole bunch of fruit leather going The plums are a bit too firm to do the whole prune thing yet. Give us a few days though and I am sure they will be plenty soft by the time I get nearer the end of the process. It is now a race against time to get it all processed without losing a bunch to overripeness. DH was asking if I could make jelly and then we laughed when we realised that the only time we used jelly was for toast and we don't do it anymore. I did get some of the paleobread a few days ago and the kids are enjoying it. However, it is really pricey and quite honestly, it is not exactly to die for. You definitely need a glass of water or milk to wash it down with. It also needs a thick layer of butter/ cream cheese etc to make it go down. Not bad, but also, as I said, not something I plan on eating much of - very dry.
I had a slice and a half of meatloaf and two fried eggs for lunch. Also a handful of baby carrots. And another cup of tea And a few pieces of dark chocolate with currants and hazelnuts in (only 60% cocoa however)
I had a small piece of raw sheep's milk cheese and 3 almonds for dinner. Just not really hungry - feel like I am fighting off the cold the kids have. It is a very mild cold this time round - they are fighting it off really nicely with almost no tylenol etc. They each had one dose for the sore throat at the beginning and otherwise the homeopathics are doing the trick. We are definitely doing better since being primal - though we have never had much illness at all. Maybe one cold a year for the kids ...
I was supposed to get a deep tissue massage tomorrow morning but have called it off due to the colds - don't want to infect my friend! Just not a friendly thing to do I have been doing some pretty extreme mobility exercises that really do seem to be helping though. I could easily make myself pass out if I wanted to - but I don't I can feel that there is a little more range of motion and the pain is a little easier. No more clicking as I walk along, still limping along like an old fraud though.
Looking forward to bed tonight. I am pooped! The kids both woke me up during the night last night with snotty noses and coughs and such. Hopefully tonight I will get a full nights sleep. Have put a wedge cushion in DS's bed so hopefully he won't cough as much tonight.
