Afternoon- kale chips sprinkled with nutritional yeast and curry powder and a protein shake. Wasn't overly sure if I liked the kale chips or not. Think I might need another go with them. I felt a bit like I was eating dried leaves, but they tasted ok. I'm also being a bit cautious with cabbages as they're a fodmap food, and did get a slight pain in my stomach afterwards. It may have been from the protein shake though, as it has some dairy in it, and my body never reacts well to that.
Had a scrummy dinner of local beef hamburger with a fried egg and lots of vegetables. Will definitely be making this one again! Having a small glass of red wine tonight, i'm really craving the haagen dazs, so I thought this would be a better option. It's hard living with family at the moment as there's so many things in the cupboard that I usually wouldn't buy, but i'm used to having to resist things on the candida diet so my willpower is quite strong. I've managed to resist the ice cream and treats so far, and the more I do it, the easier it becomes.
Did my first bit of meditation today, and really enjoyed it. I know a lot of people meditate and push everything out their head, but I just sat and really thought lots of things over, and it really helped settle my thoughts. I felt a lot more enegized afterwards as well. I haven't really researched anything about meditation recently. I tried meditating before following 'instructions' and it didn't work for me as I felt too restrained, if that makes any sense at all? I'm kind of making my own rules and may look into it a little later and see what has worked for different people. Thinking things over in the day is really useful for me as it saves me having to do it before going to bed and not being able to sleep properly from it!
Thoughts for tomorrow;
L/afternoon- bacon/roasted peppers, anything i can scrounge from the kitchen!
D- a piece of fish: wild salmon or cod
note- make spinach bread again next week for afternoons, mix in some nutritional yeast for added b vits.
