Missing is an apple with sunflower butter and a handful of nuts.
I’ve made it 8 days without sugar, grains or dairy. It hasn’t been awful, but I’ve been mindful of food laying around. I almost popped a candy corn in my mouth, I almost picked at some bread when I was making lunches, etc.
I went to the gym this morning, but didn’t want to. My arms, specifically shoulders, are so sore from yesterday that it’s hard to brush my hair, or just lift my arms period. I’m hoping that my working out today I loosened some things up a bit. I guess 60 pullups did me in!
Plus apple and sunbutter and a few more nuts!
Plus apple and almond butter.
Day 4 was pretty good too. We went to a corn maze and my 12 year old was an awesome navigator!
I have to share my Butternut Squash Soup recipe, it was a hit!
- 1 c. diced onions
- 1 c. diced celery
- 1 c. diced carrots
- 2 T. olive oil – saute all in a pan for 4 minutes
- add 4 c. chicken stock
- 4 c. cubed butternut squash
- 1/2 t. salt
- 1/2 t. pepper
- 1/2 t. thyme
- Cook for 30 minutes or until all veggies are tender. Blend with an immersion blender or cool a bit and put in a food processor. Puree until smooth. Delicous!
Day 3 was a success too!
Plus an apple with almond butter before we watched Lovely Bones.
