Calee, how were the persimmons in you salad? They're a thing from when I was little (persimmon pudding) I just realized I love and would like to learn how to use more. Especially while the markets are overrun with them.

Decided to go the other way, I am determined to figure out which fruit causes me joint ache, its not the Sals I had other non-fruit which is high in Sals and it was fine, so will experiment with other fruit, been having pears most days and that's fine it seems, will continue introducing other fruits from the sweet fruit category and see if its also OK.

I love persimmons. Guy showed up last nite with six ripe hachiya persimmons from his neighbors tree. I have eaten that variety in a long time. I think that is the variety used for persimmon pudding. They make your mouth pucker if not very ripe. He told me that he puts them in the freezer, then scoops them out and it tastes like ice cream. I will definitely try that this week.

I was in South Korea December 2005 and I don't remember seeing much fruit. Just tons of meat and fish. Of course I was in Sokcho which is a fishing town. Walking along the piers there were fish strung up to dry everywhere.
If they weren't so high in carb I would do a mono persimmon diet in the fall!

Hots, I think I appear more active than I am? This week was walking daily, an additional 5k and 5x Pilates. The Pilates are an investment and I picked a studio on my work block so no excuses. I go 3x at lunch and 2x after work at 4. I love working 7-3:30 close enough to walk to work.
Rest day today. On slept less than 5 hours. Hosting a work party tonight for 150 people. I have to be there 5-12. Ugh freaking ugh! Lunch with a girlfriend for her birthday. I need a nap which unfortunately I suck at. So jealous of people who nap easily.
Hots, I'm trying to fing my groove to get these five pounds off. I'm really dismayed at my difficulty. Protein high, carbs under 50, fat moderate to low. Calories around 1200 or less. So I keep exercising to try to at least hold things at bay. I really don't want to let go of dairy.
I didn't have my 2T of gelatin in my decaf yesterday. Stiff fingers this morning.
That's my weekend book!

The company party last night went off great. Most of the 20somethings forgot their pants at home. All sizes, didn't matter. I love seeing women of any age ready to wear whatever they want. With my big booty I would never have worn short and skin tight for fear of being judged. Times have seriously changed and I'm delighted for the young women of today. Now about the 5-6 inch heels most of them were wearing...... let's leave it to say I felt quite dowdy but then again I'm the oldest person in the company.
I ate Hershey's dark chocolate kisses. So not worth it.
Today starts two days of all day meetings. Let me just say no bagels no muffins. They would put me to sleep and do not worth it. I'll stick to protein and fruit and veggies for breakfast and lunch. Tonight im taking 30 to a wood oven pizza brewery. I ordered lots of salads and cheese curds for the tables so I'll be happy. Not sure if I'll 20% a slice of thin crust wood oven pizza. It's a weakness of mine. Maybe if I escape the flour maze all day. At least tomorrow night I can escape in time for Pilates at 5 or 6 and dinner a t home!
It's freezing here. 30 out which might seem like fall to someone else but it's freaking freezing for us in California. Makes for great snuggling though.

I have a question, maybe someone here has some ideassorry if some things are TMI!)
I have been doing very well on AIP since Oct. 1. In the last week or 2 I have noticed some stuffiness in my nose and phlem (like post nasal drip) that causes coughing.
I have not had anything new for 2 months, except I started drinking Kombucha a few times per week. I feel like that was a good thing for me, so I dont think the driping/stuffy nose and throat are from Kombucha.
Help! I thought I was doing this to improve my body, not end up hacking up junk all day!

If the kombucha is the only thing that you added, it could be the cause. I'd take it out for a week or two and see if things improve.

I remember something about American persimmons being very sour. I've never actually seen a whole one; my mom would buy pulp from a local apple orchard to make pudding. Not sure if it would work with Asian persimmon, but I am still going to try. They are too good. So sweet like a mix between a juicy peach and a juicy fig. Gah they are wonderful.

This winter I am going to try to be brave enough to get a fish, but I need to learn to ask them to clean it for me. I had a bad experience with some sardine last time. Couldn't stand anything fishy for a week. I need to see a pro work.

There are persimmons allllllll overrrrrr my neighborhood.
Tried one once and it sucked all the moisture out of my tongue for a week.
Okay, not really, but... like an hour.
ANYWAY, decided to give them another chance, so I stole one off of a tree
and let it ripen within an inch of its life on the counter. Waited until its fleshhhhh
was soft to the touch and then I cut some off, whipped off the skin and ate it.
Well, it was sweet, but it tasted like absolutely nothing. Just sweet juicy NOTHING.
Even made the 11yo try it. "dude, try this, does it taste like sweet jack shit to your or no?"
'Course I didn't actually use those words, but I laugh about it thinking I did.
Yes, yes, I'm easily entertained.
Anyway, thought it would taste like SOMEthing, but nope, very nondescript.
But it could be the way of a fruit that was plucked too early, and then left to ripen for 2 weeks.
Yanno, LIKE THEY DO IN THE STORE.
But I'm not bitter. Nope, not me.
