    UHOH Bowel Trouble

    If I were you I would immediately put aside all nuts, dried fruits, coconut and raw veggies. Focus on cooked proteins, cooked veggies and fat sources such as ghee or homemade mayo. These are all easier on the stomach and you will be able to see if the above have been causing you issues.

    Peace, Lorna! I hope you had a great weekend! I ate ALL the non-compliant things, ugh I feel awful. Hands are all puffy, and I have heartburn. Back to compliant now, until we go to Bali.

    Funny story (sorry if I've told you before!) - I was going through the checkout once and saw eggplant on sale. I grabbed some and said to my friend I was going to make Babaganoush. The girl at the checkout said "what did you just say?" in quite an offended manner. I repeated myself and she tells me that Babaganoush is HER word and SHE made it up as a pet name for her boyfriend. Trying not to laugh the poor girl into the ground, my friend and I had to explain to her that she's been calling her boyfriend "Eggplant Dip" as a honey-name for a year.

    I have a very expensive KitchenAid Chopper that attaches to my KitchenAid stand mixer and it does an awesome job of making uniform chopped cubes of things. I know this because, in the 2 years that I have owned it, I used it one time. Like Schrod, I use my knife.

    Best salad dressing!

    Now, I never follow recipes when cooking (baking is another matter). I'm a, a little of this, a little of that type girl. That being said I will read a bunch of recipes and take ideas from each one and do what I want. This recipe https://iheartumami.com/thai-grilled-beef-salad/ was my inspiration for this weeks lunches. I did my own thing with the steak, just s&p with ghee cooked rare so when I heated it up I wouldn't over cook it. For the salad I did some romaine, broccoli slaw, green onion, while onion, banana shallots, watermelon radishes, daikon radishes, mint, cucumber, and orange bell peppers. I honestly thought it was going to be too much spiciness. But I was never so happy to be wrong! Now the remarkable part of this is the dressing! I used her recipe as a guide, I pulverized 4 deseeded chili peppers (I don't remember what kind, whatever they had at whole foods that day, serrano's?), and a whole head of garlic in my food processor. I then added a whole bottle of coconut aminos and the neck of my bottle of red boat fish sauce, 4 tablespoons? I just know there was probably half an inch of the fish sauce visible over the label and it was the smaller bottle. I mixed it and squeezed in 2 limes. I then put it in my pan I cooked the steak in, I did this right after I pulled the steak so it was still wicked hot and it deglazed the pan getting up all the good bits of the steak. At this point I tasted and added a splash of rice wine vinegar for some acid. Once it had incorporated and simmered for just over a minute I took it off and poured it into my aminos bottle and a few smaller containers for traveling. At this point I squeezed a little lime juice in each container, a whole one in the bottle. I'll tell you what. I would use this dressing every day. I think I also sprinkled in some chili pepper flakes while it simmered if I remember properly. Moral of the story, check out this recipe and do what you want with it, just taste as you go and you cannot go wrong. Be confident yet cautious in the adding of more fish sauce or aminos as you go. Sprinkle, stir, taste.

    Getting back on track

    This will be the ticket to how to correct behaviour you find less than desireable. There is no point and no value in being mean to yourself. It solves nothing and can cause a shame spiral. Try changing the language you're using. Instead of mean or accusatory language you could try: "I made some decisions that I now know were not the right ones for me. I felt and looked my best on Whole30 and I know that it fits in my life so I'm going to put the last two weeks behind me and move forward. It might be difficult in the first few days but I'm prepared for that and I'll give myself kindness and consideration during the adjustment process. I'm worth my best effort." Try that and see if it's not a bit easier to make change when you're not yelling at yourself.
