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 [affiliate link] 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 [affiliate link], 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?
