    Day 3

    Felt a bit better today, but not jumping out of my skin as such.

    Started with the cayenne pepper drink.

    1 Cup dandelion tea
    1 coffee

    Lunch at 12: 3 chic rissoles home made with Asian salad also home made, with coconut oil dressing.
    Tea: spaghetti meat sauce with out the pasta, and potato, carrot, cabbage stir-fried in butter.

    Fish oil and magnesium before bed.

    I must get up earlier in the morning and get a walk in, felt great all day when
    I was walking in the morning, it's a good fresh start to the day. I need to get
    in the habit of it before the frosts set in, errrrrrr.

    Bye for now, but not forever

    Day 4

    Ok trying to catch up, not real good at this journal stuff, but I
    am sure as I go along I will get a bit better.

    Cayenne pepper drink
    dandelion tea
    coffee

    11.00: Bone Broth

    1.00: Old man came into work and wanted to go for a coffee,
    oh what a mistake, I had a piece of carrot cake, boy did I pay
    for it afterwards, shocking pain in my chest and stomach, well
    that will teach me want it. I knew when I ordered it what would
    happen, so just suck it up princess and get on with it, tomorrow
    is another day.

    Tea: will be last of my sweet potato mash with asparagus and a
    poached egg on top.

    After tea will be my fish oil and before bed I have my Magnesium and
    hopefully sweet dreams.

    Bye for now, but not forever.

    How do you make bone broth? I've seen it mentioned on these forums, but I'd never heard of it before.

    The carrot cake experience is the kind of thing, I think, we need to really stop wanting these things. I'm actually counting on it happening to me sooner or later.

    Ok, said I wasn't real good at this journal thing.

    Haven't had a real good weekend and I have ended up
    with a head cold from my son, thanks mate!

    Making another bone broth today, ummm smells so good.

    Also I bought a free range duck the other week and cooked
    it up today for my bas at work for the week.
    It is awesome, so tasty, I will be buying another
    one that's for sure.

    Judg: I just put my bones into a roasting dish with carrots, celery
    onions, garlic and salt and pepper, also a bit of ghee.
    I then roast them until brown, then I put the lot into a big pot
    fill with water and add some apple cider vinegar, and cook for
    about 12 hours then I turn of over night, then scrape the fat
    of and cook next day for another few hours or until I am left with
    a beautiful golden broth.

    Tea tonight, not sure yet weather I will feel like anything, not feeling
    real good.

    Bye for now.

    The duck sounds delicious, and so does the bone broth! Have been planning on doing one myself but keep forgetting to buy the bones

    And sorry to hear you're not feeling crash hot, hopefully tomorrow is a better day

    Thanks, Couchie. I am going to have to buy me some bones, I guess.

    Sorry you didn't have the best of weekends, but that's the great thing about tomorrows, there's always a new one on the horizon.

    I keep two containers in my freezer, one for chicken, one for everything else. Any bones left over after meals get tossed in there, toothmarks and all. I might buy some chicken feet, or marrow bones to add, but otherwise, no new bones. We have four eaters in our family, so I end up making broth every two weeks or so. Delicious.

    I will probably have to go that way too, Sabine, although it will take me longer. I'm no longer feeding a crowd, and I'm still getting my head wrapped around the concept of eating meat more often. And the fact that I will have to cook more often to do it...
