Day 6

Ok, today was tough. The kids were in a bad mood and I'm craving Ben & Jerry's something fierce. Today is what I lovingly refer to as an "ice cream day". Just a bad day that ends with a pint of ice cream with Rhett. But, alas, I'm going to settle for greek yogurt.

Seth had a really hard day. I think it was his Chipotle yesterday. After he ate it I could hear his stomach making the weirdest noises. I need to order another round of enzymes. I think that probably would have helped.

I'm realizing that, for right now, I need more protein in the morning. Once my blood sugar regulates I think I will be able to handle more grains. But for now, I need lots of nourishing proteins. My day was full of sugar cravings and I think it's because of my high carb breakfast. I gave in and snacked on some corn chips around 10am. I could feel a slight allergic reaction about 15 minutes later. Pounding heart, foggy head. I guess I should start thinking about taking out corn. Oye.

Ella's a happy camper. Two of her favorite foods are quinoa and salmon. I made her day with dinner tonight. I hope she'll thank me by sleeping through the night.

Here is what we ate today....

Breakfast - Smoothies with the usual. Spinach, strawberries, blueberries, pineapple, probiotics, almond milk. Oatmeal cooked with bananas, granola and flax seed. I love making oatmeal with the bananas cooked right in. It gives you these little clouds of fruity sweetness with every bite. Oh so good. All you do is cut up a banana and throw in in the pot along with your oatmeal. Cook as normal. All of a sudden the bananas will soften and you will smell them.....that's when you know they are ready.

- I was having a carb brain fog from the corn chips, so I just ate a cucumber. I know, it's such an anorexia meal, right? Believe me, I'll make up for it. Ella had nachos. Blue corn chips, refried beans, guac and cheese. Seth ate the refried beans.

- Salmon with lemon juice, salt and pepper. Roasted asparagus. Leftover quinoa and veggies from last night. This was so good!

Kids-are-in-bed-treat - Full fat plain greek yogurt with vanilla extract, agave syrup and coco powder stirred in.
