Tonight for dinner my husband is having something he has frequently: hamburger burros.
Since flour tortillas contain wheat and therefore gluten, I do not eat them.
What I usually have is taco salad. But that means cutting lettuce, washing it, spinning it dry, peeling and dicing a cucumber, etc., etc. I was up at 4:30 this morning, and am ready for bed already. I'm tired.
I don't feel like I got anything done today, and it's my last weekend before we leave on vacation.
I have come to the realization that I am not going to get much sleep next weekend. Thankfully I will tolerate it much better on GAPS. I know I will tolerate it better because when I don't get enough sleep, and have to work the next day, I'm able to get through the day quite well.
Prior to GAPS when I felt tired I would drink 1/2 cup coffee with 2 sugars and 2 creams to perk myself up. I needed to, or else I'd be falling asleep at my desk. I like coffee if it's sweet and creamy. But since coffee isn't good for my adrenals, and fake creamer and sugar isn't allowed I stopped drinking it at all when I went on GAPS back in December. And in spite of not having that little perk me up available, I'm able to cope when I get less sleep. That is a blessing all by itself.
Today I started another batch of beef jerky, and this time I wrote down the recipe and took photos so I can share what I did. I also used the FoodSaver Vacuum Food Sealer my boss gave me a couple of months ago (she is just too sweet to me sometimes) to vacuum seal the blueberries, almonds, bananas and apple slices that I've dried.
Tomorrow I'm going to soak cashews and start them drying, along with more blueberries.
Did I tell you about the blueberries? My hubby was doing some work for one of his customers and they got in a shipment of blueberries and gave him two cases. Twenty four pints in all. I wasn't sure what to do with them but then I realized I could dry them. That's too many for us to eat before they go bad, and no one uses them once they are frozen. I used to have fruit and kefir smoothies, but I'm not on dairy and trying to avoid fruit much of the time.
I'm beginning to get excited about our trip. I will be packing after work on Tuesday, so I hope to have everything ready by then.
I'm sorry I haven't been posting regularly! This upcoming vacation just seems to be taking away a lot of my posting opportunities.
How is your GAPS journey?
