    That is so good to hear! I will admit that I still have flashes of doubt, despite the truly awesome benefits I have experienced. This way of living is so radical compared to everyone else. And to be an unrepentant meat-eater omnivore/locavore is just too weird for most people, who think they are saving the planet by ordering cheese pizza from Dominos.

    Another squash recipe to try form Siobhan! I made your zucchini thing last week, and really liked it. Hid the leftovers from my family so that I would get them (cook's privilege, I say!)

    I'm glad you liked it. Now that I didn't use the zucchini I bought for pizza crust, I can make more zucchini thing. I bought some cottage cheese, thinking I might try it in the squash/flatbread thing. I'm definitely going to tinker with that recipe and get it right - probably just my own taste, but it was really good and something different in terms of taste and texture.

    Can I admit that I've eaten 8 or 9 pieces of bacon this morning? Had church this morning, ran to the chiropractor, was starving, went to food co-op where they had a stack of bacon waiting for me to eat it. I went a bit wild, I will admit.

    My fake kombucha tasted horrible this morning! Yuck. Have to work on this. Luckily I had some real kombucha. Had half a cantaloupe, am thinking smoothie now. Kind of tired. Lots has happened today, work stuff, maybe finding a new home stuff. Can't process it all now. Chiropractor kind of wore me out also. Back there tomorrow, whew.

    Okay, my latest squash/cheese thing is in the oven right now. Very nervous. I hope it is edible. Squash, cottage cheese, parmesan cheese, 2 eggs, salt, pepper, italian seasoning spread out on a pizza pan.

    Hey, I found my bra! It was hanging on my coat rack under a coat! Why did I take off my bra in the hallway? What the haitch? Hopefully I didn't take it off in the hallway, I happened to have it in my hand and hung it there for some reason. Or I could blame the cats. Also found my protein powder in the freezer. Huh. Might need to talk to my doc about short-term memory loss.

    Got some coconut cream at the co-op, delicious! It will be no problem putting that in my coffee. I could drink it plain. It does have sugar, unfortunately, but very little. One gram per Tbsp.

    Okay, that pizza crust idea sounds really cool. I will have to try it. Soon.

    I used to drink apple cider vinegar for my arthritis. I forget why I stopped. Would mix it with water and some Sugar Twin. (I know. Bad girl.)

    Verdict on squash/cottage cheese/egg thing. Not pizza crust. However, it is delicious. More like an omelet. I could cook this like a quiche in a pie pan, or like omelet muffins. Actually, it would be very good topped with tomato sauce and cheese and stuck under the broiler. Just not actual pizza.

    Since I like it, I put the recipe in paleotracker - it is quite nutritious. Funny how the nutrient profile of food changes when the empty calories are removed. Eggs are nutritional powerhouses and cottage cheese isn't too shabby either. Squash has carbs but actually not as many as you might think. Wonder how this would be with sweet potato? Anyway, it is very filling.

    Will have to use a harder cheese - mozzarella or maybe a mixture of cheddar/jack - if I want it to be usable as pizza crust.

    Did an incidental 16-hour fast. Finished eating at 6 PM last night and due to an early chiropractor appointment did not eat until 10 AM. Grazing in the evening used to be my downfall; now I don't even think about it. How did that happen?

    A really good thing happened today. I have been just a little sad that my favorite jeans don't fit any more - a pair of Eddie Bauer jeans I got at our beloved Maine discount store, Renys. They fit well, look nice, and they are gray, which is a little unusual and I love gray clothes, especially for the bottom half. But now I can take them off without unsnapping them. I stopped at Renys this morning and against all the odds, they had an identical pair in size 10. They fit great and cost a whopping $15. What a stroke of luck!

    Had three pieces of bacon and a small piece of havarti cheese with dill to break my fast. Now am enjoying a kombucha, which is thankfully on sale.

    Life is good.

    Had a smoothie - goat milk, protein powder (chocolate), 1/2 banana, blueberries, coconut manna. I realized that I have stopped adding stevia and don't miss it. When did that happen?

    Also had the last of my squash/egg/cottage cheese thing. Might have to go to store and get another spaghetti squash. I could make some good stuff to take to work the next few days. Cottage cheese, unfortunately, has unpleasant stuff like guar gum in it, but it seems to be very, very little. I will chalk that up to 80/20. It is inexpensive, tastes great, and is nutritious. I like the way it keeps the recipe moist even after reheating and makes for a nice texture. I am a dairy eater, so that's that.
