Val and her drinks!

Heading out the door with my bag of drinks at the ready, and laughing at myself... this is my collection for the day, mostly for the morning... green (or black) tea, Medibulk fiber for my gut, Ultima Replenisher electrolytes for my head, and a smoothie. Happy Yes, I go to the bathroom a lot, but I could not live without these!

Update: Thorne Research changed their formula for Medibulk because they were having trouble sourcing a clean psyllium, and it just does not work anymore for me! Sad Floundered for a few months trying to figure out a new option, and came up with mixing organic acacia fiber (RenewLife) with psyllium husk powder (I use Yerba Prima)- 1 heaping TBSP acacia to 3 heaping tsps. of psyllium in a blender ball cup (I have like 100 of these Laugh). There is still some controversy on the psyllium because of California Prop. 65, but the worry is so, so small and I was so overjoyed to get back to the psyllium, which is what truly works for me that I am just running with it, Prop. 65 be damned!

late night dinner fixins.

So, after a night of working late (which happens fairly often when gearing up for out of town programs), I get home and I'm over hungry. Tonight I didn't do too badly to throw this together - Annie's gluten free mac and cheese, chicken andouille sausage, black olives, and spinach, topped with a pinch of Celtic sea salt. I really love one bowl meals, classic simplicity and can be eaten on the couch during the winter hibernation months. It could have been better and it could have been worse! Dinner time is definitely a struggle for me to get it together, because I'm usually pooped by the time I get home, often after running an errand or two after work as well, and I eat cheese and crackers and call it a night. I'm determined to improve in this department, slowly but surely. This felt like a small step in the right direction. Happy Also last 3 posts here mention pasta, I'm seeing a pattern!

death row meal!

Found these the other day at Earth Fare and I jumped for joy! I'm always scoping out the new products that are coming into stores seemingly every day now, but I have been waiting for Gluten Free Ravioli for a long, long time. I was raised in Upstate NY in a very heavily Italian community, and that is basically the only cuisine I ate until I college! Spinach ravioli is my death row meal, so you can imagine how happy I was... I ate half for lunch today and the rest for dinner! Laugh Two minutes to prepare, drizzled with olive oil, topped with freshly grated sheep's cheese (easier to digest per my naturopath), and I was a very happy girl.
