    butter chicken has heavy cream - so as much as I love it - I can't have it without lactaid pills. I haven't tried making it with coconut cream - that might be really good! and could be thickened with the arrowroot powder as well. Next time I make it I will have those things on hand.

    I think I'm feeling better -- last trip to the bathroom was several hours ago - and the pain in my stomack has reduced to just a nagging ache rather than gut wrenching pain! I'm craving chicken strips! I don't ever eat that kind of food, breaded and deep fried, but I sure want some right now. I'm trying to figure out what to ask my hubby to grab on his way home from the family gathering that I missed. I don't want to do veggies -- to much fiber. maybe I'll have him cook me a salmon fillet when he gets home........ OH - he just texted............ he already got the chicken strips. Oh well --

    That's okay, enjoy them and move on. I think you need to listen to your body - sometimes I just know I need more carbs (usually when I'm burning the candle at both ends). Rest, refeed, recover!

    I want to like salmon, but it is really fishy to me. You seem to have it a lot - any suggestions for making it palitable for a non-fishy fish eater?

    Well, I'm not too sure about American sources. Anywhere that sells gluten-free products, I would imagine. Check bulk stores, health food stores. Usually called arrowroot flour or starch. Tapioca flour is cheaper, but arrowroot freezes better, in case you make a big batch of some sauce for future use.

    Glad to hear your gut is feeling better. Take good care of yourself.

    the fresher it is the less "fishy" it will smell and taste. Also, the native fish are less "fishy" than the farmed fish. White fish is sometimes the better choice for those who aren't really fish lovers. Halibut or cod, they are both very mild fish. Talapia is really good. I pretty much love all fish but I'm not keen on muscles or scallops -- I don't like the rubbery kind of seafood.

    I can do muscles, clams, oysters - not so keen on scallops either. Thanks for the tips.

    +Spend Monday on the boat - what a beautiful day it was! Still had a bit of a tummy ache, but not the bowel issues. I ate without getting sick so was happy about that!

    Last night I got really mad at my hubby for not caring more about his health. I told him I don't want to be his mom in few years - alone and lonely because dad didn't take care of himself and he died on her! His dad had CHF and diabetes and high blood pressure. He was over weight for most of his life and he never did anything for his health. My hubby isn't caring about his weight - and he is getting a very large gut! I'm guessing on his 5'7" frame he's carrying about 220 pounds. He won't tell me what he weighs. The gut is not attractive.......... and its not healthy! He eats Taco Bell or other fast food for lunch - and then thinks he's doing really good because we eat healthy at home. I wish I was like some of the other people who could get their spouse on board....... it would be so much easier for me to stay on course if my hubby was with me on this. I'm not giving up though......... I'll keep trying.

    So, the chicken strips and fries tasted good.......... but boy did I pay for it! about an hour after I ate my legs started aching!!!! I hurt really bad for a couple hours and then it went away. I know it was the breading and crappy oils on the food. I won't do that again.

    I weighed yesterday....... I was obviously retaining a LOT of water - because after 2 days of eating practically nothing I gained 3 pounds! But I think most of it is gone today. I weighed after I had already gotten dressed - and fully clothed with my jeans on I was 189. So I'm guessing I'm back down to 186 again.

    We hired a company to clean the outside of our house and windows in and out.......... the guy is here now cleaning the inside windows - and it feels really strange to have someone cleaning my windows while I'm sitting here doing nothing! Very weird! But hey ---- at the end of the day the house is going to look pretty great!

    I'd really love to not go to work today........

    I get angry with my husband for the same thing. He's 6'1" at 320 lbs. I know your struggles. He doesn't understand the necessity to remain 100% faithful to Paleo like we do... He thinks that as long as a majority of his meals are Paleo, he's ok, but he's not and it's hard to get that through his head that while it's not an "all or nothing" thing, it needs to be pretty damn close to work.

    Glad you're feeling better and hope you continue to recover.
