I was feeling tired and a little cranky on day 3. My DH is still very sick so that has kept me quite busy. I’ve been taking pictures of most of my meals just to help me keep track of the likes and dislikes and what I am eating. Pistachio’s have been saving me while at doctors offices and pharmacies for my DH. I’m going to really load up on the food pictures on this post because I skipped a day. Today’s post will cover my day 3 and 4. I am on the tail end of day 5 whilst typing this. One thing before I forget. I got some Green Pastures Blue Ice Royal Butter oil/ Fermented cod liver oil blend gel in cinnamon tingle. I have come to realize I am the biggest pansy in the world. Oh my this stuff is hard to get down! The first time I took it was when I first got it and it was liquid, sorta, but not really. It’s almost about to turn me off cinnamon. I take one dose a day and I really hope this horrifying goop has great benefits, because it is close to torture. I have to talk myself into to taking it, blech!! If anyone knows of a better way to get this stuff ingested please tell me, please! Ok, enough of that, on to the good stuff.
Breakfast smoothie made with Raw cow’s milk, 1 frozen green tipped banana, 2 TBS Almond butter 1/2 tsp cinnamon and a hard boiled egg. I needed avocado for this but the ones I got at the farmers market this past weekend were no good 😦
oven baked chicken and cucumbers with olive oil, vinegar and salt and pepper.
Dinner was rotisserie chicken and cucumbers, nothing picture worthy. I had a glass of Raw milk before bed.
On to day 4,
carrot pumpkin muffins topped with coconut butter mixed with cinnamon and two eggs fried in Ghee with Turmeric. Very filling breakfast!
left over rotisserie chicken and cucumber salad made with cherry tomatoes, Kalamata olives, a English cucumber, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cracked black pepper, oregano, basil and sea salt. I decided I wanted feta cheese to top it off for the next time. I decided to go shopping after lunch. Dinner was left over chicken and cucumber salad with feta cheese added. I got a few other things I needed to make the smoothie out of the book for day 5. Time to go into the kitchen and make some Chia seed pudding for tomorrow. The question is should I do chocolate, cinnamon or a combination of the two?
It was pretty uneventful for day two except for the fact my right shoulder problem moved to my neck and I couldn’t turn my head. I go to see my Chiropractor today at noon. I’m really glad I had cooked extra chicken and boiled eggs on hand. I did get a little snippy with my husband, but that could be because of the pain or the detox. I will admit walking past the cookies my husband has on the counter was pretty hard. I took care of that problem this morning, I threw them in the garbage. DH is sick with a virus right now, Stomatitis. He can’t eat or drink without pain so we’ve been to see the doctor twice in two days. If this keeps up it’s the ER for him!
Yesterday for breakfast I had two eggs fried in bacon grease sprinkled with Turmeric and a super easy fast butternut squash soup. I will give you the recipe for the soup. You can have 1 cup of butternut squash on Level 1 of the 21 DSD and I needed some kind of a veggie that didn’t take much effort. I happened to have fresh butternut squash puree in my fridge ( go me thinking ahead).
recipe for soup
1 cup butternut squash puree
1 cup chicken bone broth
3 TBS Raw milk
1 heaping tsp cinnamon
mix well heat and eat.
Lunch was a super big chicken thigh and spinach sauteed in bacon grease with black pepper and garlic.
Dinner was a wash, it was late after getting home from the Minute Clinic with my DH and my pain level was through the roof.
I made a smoothie with 1 frozen green tipped banana 1 cup raw milk 2 TBS almond butter and cinnamon. I ate a hard boiled egg with that. No pictures. I also snacked on pistachios today.
I do know that if I can move my head after the Chiropractor today, there will be a visit to Trader Joe’s for the rest of the ingredients for the smoothies in the book and some more butternut squash. I really need more vegetables in my life, but without many of my old favorite dressing options for salads, I’m not in a rush to eat a salad!
