Hi friends!

I’ve been concocting some interesting eats lately and it’s sad when I forget about yummy things I’ve made in the past. Taking pics helps me remember, so here I am again. I may not consistently record everything; might just pop in with interesting new creations time and again. Time will tell.

In other news, Food Protege did fabulously on her elimination diet. She can (very happily) handle moo dairy, but gluten is no bueno. Surprised? No. After the three-week experiment, she strayed back to the ways of gluten but is now back on the wagon. She is working through the phases of acceptance that this will be a forever thing if she wants to feel good. Totally normal to go through fits and starts like that and I’m counseling her as much as she needs. (She also ran a very difficult half-marathon in 2:07 last weekend. woot!)

Another “subject” I’ve counseled on who suffers from Crohn’s is FINALLY doing better following the SCD. It’s taken a long time and fruitless doctor’s appointments for her to get to this point. Once she’s a bit more stable, her mother (my co-worker) wants to go to congress to bring attention to the issue that NONE of her doctors had anything helpful to say about diet. Co-worker’s friends and family think she’s nuts when she tells them this. I told her I would go with her.

Anyway, on to the eats!

Tomato Egg Cups and Nuked Sweet Potato. It’s smiling at you!

OMG, this was a TON of food compared to my usual breakfast lately. So. Stuffed. Blech. The tomato egg cups were a new experiment. Not worth it; they’ll go in the reject pile.

Oops, almost forgot the lunch pic of my giant salad.

And a little strawberry watermelon cooler.

Wow, that’s dark. oops. Well, even though you can’t see it, dinner WAS Butter Chicken, Roasted Broccoli, and Pickled Squash. This was the first time I’d made this chicken. LORDY, it was GOOOOOD! I modified the recipe slightly, but you can find the original here. Make it!

After a quick bike ride, I cooled off with a Green Frozen Lemonade. I’ve been making a lot of blended fruit things lately. This is one of my favorites. It’s simple and totally satisfying for like 20 calories. Plus, lemon juice does fabulous things for digestion.

1 cup ice
3 T lemon juice
1/2 c water or seltzer
2 c spinach
stevia or honey to taste (optional)

Blend, baby, blend! Yum. It looks really cool too.
