    Yes, your tuna salad does sound wonderful. Is there an alternative to mayo? I wonder how it would be with some thick greek yogurt? or sour cream? Course - those are out on Whole30 - but eventually I will adding them back in again. What kind of apples do you use - do you leave the peels on?

    I used to do that all the time when I was a kid. Walk out to the garden, pick and eat a pepper.
    I'd forgot about that till just now.

    The cost is probably why we "spread them out" instead of eating them plain.

    I ate a whole green pepper with my turkey for lunch. No fat, but there is plenty of day left to get some good quality fat.

    I adore red peppers, wish they were a bit cheaper. They do taste like candy. Loaded with nutrients also. Hey, I'm talking myself into one.

    Hmm, red peppers. When I was little, I hated them. I despised getting a salad and thinking that I got the mother load with tomatoes only to find out that what I bit into didn't taste the way I wanted it to. As a grown adult (I use that term very loosely) I love the taste.

    It is funny, isn't it, how our tastes change? When I was little I actually afraid of many vegetables, I have no idea why. Now I love them. I'm glad it worked out that way.

    Hi, btw. I admire your perseverance and progress!
    Thanks June.

    Your tuna salad sounds wonderful!
    I occasionally snitch pieces of peppers, but it's been a very long time since I ate one plain intentionally. Well, half of one...

    I leave the peels on, but it's really a question of personal taste. I've never made it with anything but mayo, but perhaps your ideas - or avocado - would work. A little dry mustard or Dijon and a dash of vinegar might give it the zing of mayo.

    True. (Mind you, I got some great specials lately.) But I figure I don't buy desserts, I don't smoke, I don't drink, I almost never do fast food, I DESERVE to pay a little extra for good food. If anything, I'm probably too cheap still in that regard. I haven't gone organic yet, because the cost scares me. Plus the fact that it would be harder to find, especially for meat. I'm also not good at too much change at once. I'm still getting used to eating no grains and almost no sugars, and finding my balance in primal eating.

    Never did get the thunderstorms, despite a couple of weather warnings. Not fair. The other end of town got torrential downpours, and I have to water my garden...

    Anyway, I'm a couple of days behind in my reporting, so here goes:

    Health journal June 7, 2012

    Sleep: 6-7 hours? Was kind of droopy all day as a result

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Breakfast: Gr. yogurt with blueberries, slivered almonds, and seeds
    Lunch: Ribs, red pepper
    Supper: "Moussaka" (broiled eggplant baked in a tomato sauce), green salad
    Snacks: Iced coffee with cream and stevia

    Exercise: Gardening...

    Activities: Gardening, dishwasher, hand dishes, mending, watched the whole "The Skinny on Obesity" series that Ecks recommended (downright scary), spent time with hubby.


    Health journal June 8, 2012

    Sleep: 7 hours? Not enough. I was feeling a bit dizzy and ended up falling asleep for the whole second half of the Eurocup game.

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Breakfast: 4 slices bacon and a berry smoothie with coconut milk and seeds
    Lunch: Cooked savoy cabbage and roasted potatoes, cherries
    Supper: Bit of moussaka
    Snacks: Macadamias, Brazil nuts, cherries, iced coffee with cream and stevia

    Exercise: Nope.

    Activities: Grocery shopping, lunch with in-laws, nap, hand dishes, dishwasher, sorted and shelved DVDs and videos

    Yeah for GARDENING! I would spend my entire day puttering in the garden if I had the time, energy and un-limited garden funds!

    For future reference: it is not a good idea to blanch too many almonds at once. Once they dry and cool, the skins get tough again and you have to reblanch them. And here I had spread them out on a dishtowel, thinking they shouldn't stay hot and damp... Live and learn.
