This morning I started wondering if anyone is reading my blog. I don’t do too much in the way of publicizing it, and that is fine with me. The Leo moon side of me LOVES feedback though, so I started feeling a little self-conscious. Maybe that’s why I ended up doing all this writing on my blog instead of my journal. To get past that whole “is anyone even listening” thing. It doesn’t even matter if no one reads this, because the point is that I’m writing. And writing a lot. Consistently. Whoohoo!
That said, if you are reading this, please don’t be shy, and leave a little note like “Hi!” or something. Just for my ego’s delight okay?
Yesterday afternoon was a very active one. I got off work, went home, did a few chores, and then a full session of T-tapp. I made the Body Ecology Diet mayonnaise and discovered that I definitely should have used LIGHT olive oil. The regular one has too strong a taste for the mayo. I ended up mixing it with a little bit of regular mayo, and ketchup. So it doesn’t fit with B.E.D. but at least its edible now. I think it would taste really good if I redo the recipe with half LIGHT extra virgin olive oil and half coconut oil or something.
Here’s the recipe:
2 egg yolks
2 Tbs raw organic apple cider vinegar
1 Tbs fresh lemon juice
1/2 tsp mustard
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (I added a little more)
2 tsp seal salt
1 cup olive oil
*In blender combine egg yolks, vinegar, lemon juice, mustar, cayenne pepper, salt and 1/4 cup of the oil. Blend for 30 seconds.
*Very slowly, through opening in blender lid, add remaining oil while blender is still going. Continue to blend until smooth.
*Scrape into a glass jar with a screw top and it’ll keep safely in the refrigerator for 7-14 days
I will be trying a few different dressings and sauces. There are recipes for gravy, vinaigrette, curried cauliflower sauce, and more that I want to try very soon. Our dinner last night was, well BLAH. I sauteed turger burgers, chopped up with onions and mixed organic frozen veggies and a little bit of spinache puree. Sounds good, but it just wasn’t that great. I will skip the frozen veggies next time with this kind of meal. The good news is that the boys still ate some of it.
After dinner, I whipped up some buscuits from Pamela’s gluten free pancake mix (no this doesn’t fall in line with the healing stage of the B.E.D. because of the almond meal, etc. but at least it was gluten, dairy and sugar free). I mixed in some of the squash puree that I made earlier in the day, some cinnamon, nutmeg, stevia & butter/coconut oil. And they were phenomenal. They are SO yummy! Like a pumpkin-pie-pancake-biscuit-soft-cookie-thing.
Since I’m on such a roll talking about food, I’ll continue!
This morning, the boys had one of those aforementioned super yummy biscuits and a super green smoothie (bananas, mixed fruit, flaxseed meal, coconut oil, liquid chlorophyll, water). I had a green ACV cocktail (water with liquid chlorophyll and apple cider vinegar) and then made breakfast when I got to work. I cooked two eggs in a lot of coconut oil with sea salt and lots of pepper, and heated up the last of the squash and ginger soup I had made. To help with digestion (since I had animal proteins AND a decent amount of oil) I had a small cup of water mixed with a teaspoon of ACV. YUM. Oh how I LOVE eggs cooked this way.
I feel really good. Between these nutritional changes, t-tapp, dry-skin brushing, and just a changed attitude about food, the body & life overall, I feel a major transformation already underway! I’m already super thin, so I’m not trying to lose weight. In fact, gaining some might be nice. Either way, I FEEL good, so I’m really not all that concerned about how I look. The biggest, more noticable change is my energy levels. I mean, last night I was up till my usual bedtime, but what I was DOING during that time was different. I was in the kitchen, moving around the house, making lunches for the next day, and I CLEARED the sink. This was a first. Seriously. Whatever is going on, I like it.
So I will leave you with some pictures of our sprouts that are growing so big! I need to transplant the sunflowers, zuchinni and cucmber already, they are getting crazy! I’m still trying to figure out where I’m going to put everything. I’d love the sunflowers in the front of our house, but it gets so windy from that direction, I wonder how hardy they are? I need to have my herbs and lettuce right outside the window, otherwise they will end up neglected. And with that, here they are!
