    Alessandra,

    The NC Board of Dietetics and Nutrition charges that the blogger was practicing nutrition without a license. What is happening?!
    No fruits and veggies in school, no Paleo on the internet...it's like they are purposely TRYING to keep us sick. ARGH!

    (sorry for butting into your conversation...this just gets under my skin!)

    "practising nutrition without a licence"? Oh my... Is that actually a crime on the books?

    They didn't use the actual words "practising nutrition" did they? That would more or less make it illegal to eat.

    Back in the day, my son's kindergarten teacher disallowed applesauce because of the sugar content (I was sending sugar-free), but granola bars were okay... Even chocolate-coated ones. And people wondered why I home-schooled. Well, that wasn't the reason in and of itself, but how on earth are you supposed to teach kids to think in that kind of environment?

    Alessandra, anybody who put garlic in capital letters is a friend of mine.

    Pam, I have no problem whatsoever with you posting about this on my journal. Practicing nutrition? I'll have to read the article. I'd take that to me that they were an unlicensed nutritionist? I'm definitely going to have to read this article.

    Judg, it's still a battle with Gabi to get her to eat what she should be eating. I do what I can, but she won't completely dive in right now. There are days when she's all set to go, then there are days when she's not. I thought this would be much easier with her, but I am clearly wrong!

    P.S. Garlic has got to be my favorite food!

    I just finished reading the article on the blogger. Crap, total crap. I can see where the Board is coming from, but I'm bothered that this woman would be so much of a punk as to hide behind the Board like that. This is a clear case of feeling superior and power being in the wrong hands. Had she been any decent sort of human being, one with an open mind, he wouldn't be going through this. Ugh, close minds only do more damage!

    SUGAR CRAVING! Help, someone? I already fell to the trap of M&M's earlier. Why is this happening?

    Sleep, glorious sleep! Another night of peaceful log like sleep last night. I know what my stressor is in that area so I can now walk away from it. I might just need some encouragement from you guys though Guess what we talked about in my small group tonight? That's right, community and encouraging one another I really needed class tonight and I'm glad that we're forming a good bond. I'm also happy to have this journal and get encouragement here! Only, I did cave to the sugar craving. One cookie and some M&M's earlier. I thought I had my fats covered for the day, but I guess not? I found a recipe on here for some blueberry "candy" that Mark has. I just need a dehydrater, unless someone else has a better way for me to do that without one?

    After the fuss over the snack issue at Gabi's school, she ended up leaving her snacks in my truck this morning! I called Mom as soon as I realized what happened and my Mom saved the day! Gabi said that the test turned out to be much easier than the simulated tests were. Thank goodness! No breakdown today

    B: 2 slices bacon, 2 egg omelette with sauteed spinach
    S: Mixed berries and one medium avacado
    L: 2 leftover buffalo burgers, leftover steamed squash, and salad with homemade dressing
    S: .....cheese...sooooo...goood... Then the M&M attack. I don't know what happened here. I just wanted some chocolate and there was no more of the Lindt. I snapped, that's all there was to it. I was in the M&M zone and couldn't see a way until the last one in the trail mix was gone. I wanted to stop, but I couldn't. I actually made myself a little sick!
    D: Lemony chicken piccata with roasted PURPLE carrots. Yes, the carrots were delicious
    S: Some applesauce cheese things from small group, like two of them. Maybe this is where the sweet craving came from? I don't know. But I had a cookie earlier too.... I don't know what happened to me tonight

    Drinks: Water and Coconut milk

    Exercise: 10 Min Trainer Total Body.

    Alessandra...today is done. It can't be changed. Learn from the experience & move on. Remember this isn't a "diet"...its a lifestyle change. And you are newer at this than some of the rest of us...slip ups happen. Don't beat yourself up about it, it just happens. And will happen again more than likely! Try to figure out what the trigger was & think about what you might be able to do differently next time. Tomorrow is a brand new day with a clean slate!!!

    You're doing great! Keep up the good work!
    Goal: Don't worry be happy!

    Alessandra, I have found that a teaspoon of ascorbic acid (5,000mg of vit C) in a shot glass of water is a sugar-craving buster. Takes about fifteen minutes to work for me. I can usually walk away from the sugar for that long, and when I get back, no more craving. Sometimes it lasts all day, sometimes just a few hours. But I figure some extra vitamin C can't hurt much.

    I had an interesting realization yesterday about my insane sweet cravings, I was eating quite a few things with raw honey, stevia, and coconut crystals and as time went along I was craving more and more sweets, so I backed off on those but it didn't help. Then It dawned on me that my sweet cravings were in direct correlation with my lack of green veggies!! Not all veggies but green ones like kale, broccoli, brussels, celry etc. As soon as I added those poof sugar cravings gone. Wow~that was an eye opener!

    Well, I tried something different this morning to see if I could keep the sweet attack at bay, but then I craving for bread stuff this afternoon! Ugh. Right now, I've got some almond crackers cooking up. We've got a charity dinner thing to go to and I don't want to cave to bread tonight cause I've already had some seasame sticks and goldfish. This stuff has got to be removed from my house.
