It’s all downhill from here! Not that it has felt like too much of a struggle if I am honest.
Half way baby! In the midst of BBQ waftings and far too much cake, I have survived to the halfway point. It hasn’t been a terribly newsworthy day with the exception that I realised I am allergic to fresh pineapple.
As the BBQ permeated the office, I felt quite smug as I tucked into my salad followed by a pot of fresh pineapple. As I got towards the end of my pot, my mouth had gone all tingly and my tongue had started to swell. It wasn’t really bad, but it was quite uncomfortable. I’ve never really noticed it before when I’ve eaten pineapple.
Sad times. I guess I’ll have to go back to my trusty mango instead.
I am sooooooo bored of balsamic vinegar being on my salad. I am also feel like breakfast is a bit lacking in creativity so I will be putting my thinking cap on for next week’s breakfast.
I’m still having some tummy troubles, which I suspect is just a clear out (nice!) and will settle back down soon.
All is forgiven, balsamic vinegar! I didn’t put any on my salad today, and wished I had. You can’t please some people! I had some good post today – Well Fed 2 but Melissa Joulwan arrived today. I love leafing through a new recipe book looking for inspiration. It is quite similar in parts to Nom Nom Paleo (or NNP is close to Well Fed 2, I think WF2 was first). I have missed a bit of spice in our meals so I have a couple of recipes earmarked for the weekend’s cook up.
I have had a really nice day, relaxing doing some cross stitch. I had originally planned to do some work, but my brain just didn’t want to play. It was great to pick up something that was quite mindless and just be quiet.
We had a cooked breakfast which was fab and saw us through to tea time without any thought for lunch. Tea was the final cottage pie, which was the last meal of my mass cooking session two weeks ago.
I’ve been a busy bee with some work this morning. I could have killed for a cup of tea or even a black coffee (I take my coffee with two sugars). I guess it’s just a habit thing. I am missing tea every now and then. This afternoon has been all about cooking. I even managed not to make a huge mess in the kitchen like I normally do!
The pork is in the slow cooker to make pulled pork. Cincinnati chilli is currently on the hob simmering away. Taj Mahal Chicken and West African Stew (all from Well Fed 2) are currently cooling down in their boxes, ready to go in the freezer, and I have meatballs from Nom Nom Paleo left to make. As something new to try for breakfast, I have made little eggy muffins.
They have smoked bacon, diced onion, yellow pepper and salt and black pepper in them. I wasn’t expecting the back ones to get quite so big. I think I used about 5 eggs.
All in all, I’m still feeling good, not the “tiger blood” (cringe) stage, but consistently good. My sleep is sound, though I rarely have a problem with my sleep, and when I do, I know what’s caused it. I’m less bloated, and I feel like I am cracking this sugar thing. I haven’t craved anything other than tea over the last few days.
