    Health journal June 9, 2012

    Sleep: 6 hours. Nowhere near enough. Needless to say, it was not an ambitious day.

    Weight: 154.6

    Food
    Vitamins: check
    Breakfast: Gr yogurt with raspberries, slivered almonds, maple syrup and seeds
    Lunch: Moussaka, spinach salad with avocado dressing
    Supper: Cottage cheese with the rest of the avocado, tomato, and marinated eggplant
    Snacks: Almonds, cherries, primal "candy"

    Exercise: Nope

    Activities: Small chores, laundry, blanching almonds (big job when you do several pounds), nap
    5'2", 55 years, Primal since April. Pre-Primal weight loss, from 216.6 to 157.8
    Primal low: 140.2 (Dec. 3) Goal weight: 135?
    Main Primal goal: beating back my CFS enough to function more normally and start writing again

    More and more, our life has been governed by specialists, who know too little of what lies outside their province to be able to know enough about what takes place within it.

    It doesn't taste anything like mayo, but I often use yogurt or cottage cheese or sour cream with tuna, usually some combination of these. I'll bet adding mustard or maybe hot sauce would be a good idea too. I don't often keep mayo in the house because I can't (or don't) eat even a small jar before it goes bad. In the pre-primal days I would sometimes grab individual packets that one finds in cafes, but the commercial stuff is of course made with bad oils.

    I just realized that my beloved mini-food processer actually has a special mayo blade.

    Anybody reading this thread because of an interest in CFS should check out BestBetter's links (from the She-Groks thread), quoted below. I have virtually every symptom of CFS that he names, although some have been alleviated or diminished since I went primal.

I'm in the process of trying out some of the supplements that were recommended (mainly amino acids) and I wanted to wait a while before posting anything about it so I could see if I had any improvement, but I'd like to share this with you (and anyone else)in case it's information you haven't come across yet. (And if you do know about it already, I'd love to know your take on it!)

    Sour cream sounds promising. I am going to have to experiment. In the meanwhile, I bought the light olive oil. Hope that works. I can live with only occasional mayo, but the thought of going permanently without it is a bit daunting. I can't imagine tinned tuna without it. Or rather, I don't much care for it without mayo.

    Judg, just dropping by and checking out your journal. Glad you're thinking of using my week in review format, because I definitely like your daily format better than mine, so might be "borrowing" that. Also noticed your displeasure over EVOO mayo. I haven't had any mayo since going primal 10 days ago, but will be attempting to make Bacon Mayo later this week for use with tuna and chicken salads. Also could make for interesting deviled eggs.

    The bacon mayo is very interesting, and would be quite inexpensive to try out. This whole mayo thing is quite a problem to be solved.

    Dash, let me know how the bacon mayo works out. I include my activities in my daily report, because my main goal is to increase my energy. Losing weight is secondary and I'm content with slow progress in that department.

    LBF, I'm trying the light olive oil next. But first I have to use up the current batch. I'm cheap. And I don't use mayo as much as I used to, so it could take a while.

    Spambot quoted me in another thread?! What's up with that?

    So, most of the stores here that sell EVOO, or supposed to be, sell the ones that have soybean oil in them! Not touching that stuff man (mental note: why is it hard to stay away from sugar, but not with the soybeans...hmmm...). I tried making EVOO mayo at home, but failed in my attempts. Bought some regular olive oil and am going to try it that way.
