Congrats on your house sale! Hoping ours will be next.
That restaurant sounds awesome, even if you don't have a pup to bring along!
Yes, nesting is nice. My aunt is coming at christmas. I feel the need to get the place sorted for her (and for us). Also, it took me two years to figure out what I wanted to do with the space and make peace with So Much Beige.
Are you guys doing a lot of hikes on the camping trip, or just short day ones, or what? I'm planning a lot of day hikes for when my aunt comes.
Yes, we are planning on lots of hiking when we get up to some higher elevations in Utah and it's a little cooler. We are going to be heading through some really hot places on the way like Las Vegas where you just keep going with AC on full blast and don't roll down the windows.
Is yours already on the market or are you just working up to it?
Yes, thanks for turning me on to the DC site. Wish there were more folk posting there more often.
Funnily enough, I don't get any flak for my diet. My husband likes more veggies, but has acquiesced to my lack of greens as he watches me feel better/not bloated, more energy with my high fat diet. Maybe it's all the chocolate butter I share with him, lol!
At our Traditional Foods Gathering potluck this weekend, I only drank broth from the meat & veggies and ate chocolate butter, since I had already eaten steak & eggs in the morning. No comments from anyone.
We have tenants until the end of July, then we will list Our house. For now it is on Zillow and Craigslist.
I've been over to DC a bit too...
I do eat some veggies. I like my cool crunchy romaine salads now that it's summer...
And I like some fruits for treats on occasion.
But I never, ever, put any plant matter in my mouth out of obligation or just for "nutrition".
Meat and offal and sea food is for nutrition.
Sometimes, like you PB, I eat all meat with my "condiment" veg.
Husband would certainly never complain as I've been sick for so long... over 15 years, as long as we've been together... and I'm finally at my healthiest now. Healthiest since becoming sick that is.
My autoimmune diseases are still present, but under control!
I had a spat of good health once before on Atkins... it was great, but then I was supposed to bring back the healthywholegrain carbs to living levels and got sicker again... that's hindsight of course.
At the time I was all, "Well, I've had a little remission period and now I'm sick again." since there was no data connecting my disease to autoimmune or diet at the time, that's exactly what my doctors told me too. *sigh*
I really wish I had KNOWN.
I think it would have prevented this whole brain thing.
I love it when 20yr olds come on MDA and are all... but I eat wheat products and feel fine!
Yeah. I did too... and then I woke up one day with an incurable autoimmune disease and no one told me that it was autoimmune because this was 15 years ago, and it's a rare disease that doesn't get much funding, and they hadn't even done that research yet... so 12 years later I got another autoimmune disease from continuing to abuse my body with wheat.
And I'm not that rare a case... it's getting more and more prevalent every year. All the fibros and lupus, and more really young people getting diagnosed. And doctors are not telling patients to change their diets to reduce their symptoms.
Meh. /end rant
“You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.”
And that's why I'm here eating HFLC Primal/Paleo.
Men tend to be more supportive when you offer them lotsa steakaneggz and bacon. Most guys won't argue with that.
