Nothing exciting to report again.
I did get to talk to one of my sisters about GAPS. She said she wasn’t ready to do anything like GAPS but she did ask what goes into “prep” and how many times a day do I eat. She’s been doing a rotation diet or some thing called PSA? I think. I didn’t pay a lot of attention in the last few years since I didn’t think I could ever diet. I told her about my feet and back, how they’ve stopped hurting. She asked me if I thought my feet and back stopping hurting could be from losing weight. I don’t think so because it was only Day 13 of going to full GAPS. I suppose it could have been, but I don’t think it is.
I made a loaf of sandwich bread from Elana Amsterdam’s The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook today. I had to tweak the recipe a bit. It called for arrowroot powder, which is not GAPS legal. It turned out okay. Actually it was pretty good. I think I was expecting a taller loaf, but I did have to tweak it some so maybe that is why it is shorter than I anticipated.
I made zucchini into spaghetti using my Spiralizer and made meatballs (the recipe I link to, although meatloaf makes awesome meatballs) in the oven for dinner. The meatballs turned out delicious, but my hubby wouldn’t eat them. He doesn’t like sweet taste in a dinner meal. I didn’t put anything sweet, it was the tomatoes.
I made garlic butter and had some on the bread I made earlier today.
I managed to drink six glasses of water today. I drank two cups at a time each time. I didn’t have to use my Albuterol last night – I felt like I was not breathing as well as I could be, but no wheezing. I didn’t have to use it today either. I drank four glasses of water yesterday.
I guess I am going to just use my Albuterol as needed.
I’m pretty tired tonight. I guess I wish I would see some improvement in my energy levels. I’m feeling a little weary.
I’m not having to take a nap every single day that I don’t have to go to my regular job, so that is a positive.
I thought the meatballs were fabulous, and I would love to make them again. But I made two pounds worth of meat today so I would have to cut it way back just to make it for myself.
Shoot. I forgot to cook my liver today. I hope I remember to come home tomorrow night and do that.
