Night time and not sleeping.

We all have nights like that, where you just can’t get sleepy or fall asleep.  I have found a tea that I blend myself for my husband and myself.  My hubs jokingly calls it Auntie Janette’s Narcotea.  I will have to say it works very well and I am not going to give out the measurements.  But I will tell you what’s in it, mostly. ‘)   Catnip, spearmint, chamomile and a few other choice herbs.  It relaxes you and helps you get to sleep and stay a sleep.  Brew a cup and if you like add some local raw honey, or what ever sweetener you’d like.  If your little heart desires you may add Almond milk, coconut milk or raw dairy or even goats milk.  In the summer I cold brew it for my hubs and I.

I have been a huge slacker! Back to basics J.E.R.F. Just eat real food!

I was really good about posting on my 21 Day sugar detox, then I got tired of posting.  I did make it through the whole 21 days, then Thanksgiving with my family in Arkansas.  I pretty much bailed out on just eating real food and I feel like crap!!  I am sorry I stalled out on posting what I ate and went through on my 21 DSD, but I am doing it again.  I will start January 6th with the groups.  It is the first Monday of the month.  In celebration of that I am eating real food today!  It’s not 21 DSD compliant unless you work out or are pregnant or nursing.  I am none of the above!!  I will attempt to purchase the new 21 DSD cook book, but since funds are low, it may not happen in time for the start.  Okay, here are my breakfast pictures below.

ImageHomemade organic apple sauce sprinkled with a touch of cinnamon.  I took all the apples I had and chopped them up, put them in my crock pot and let them cook on low over night.  Nothing added to them at all, skins left on.  I let them cool a little and put them in my Blendtec blender on the soup setting.

ImageFarm fresh eggs and bacon with sweet potato hash browns.  Cooked in, yes bacon grease!!   J.E.R.F. = Just eat real food.  I really need to stay focused on that!!!
