APRIL 28, Tuesday / DAY 44 / TESTING AGAVE & BAI 
S
tayed upstairs until noon - looking at trees / reading / LOVE APRIL Perfection!

Saw a FB post that said " 2020 is an unusual time - Febuary had 29 days - and April lasted a year!:lol:
But I LOVE it - glad April was leisurely and long!

Recap:  ***NO Tummy Issues At All today! Or yesterday!

Downstairs by noon - coffee

12:45 - half sweet potato w/ Pod cream / cup of Tea w/ Tbsp AGAVE 
Full & satisfied a long time :)

2:45 - 2 lge Strawberries w/ AGAVE & Pod Cream; yum!
3 pm - half slice chicken / 7 organic blue corn chips (safflower oil)

4:30 - Delicious Salad - shredded roast beef on leaf lettuce/ Green Herbal Dressing / half avocado / Fresh Market Salsa / chives
           7 organic blue corn chips

7:15 - Delicious PEACH Collagen Smoothie - w/ BAI / scoop Collagen, 3 slices fz Peaches / 1/4 tsp almond extract / about 2 tsp AGAVE

Full & satisfied most of the day - & SENSE OF WELL BEING - as if  still on W30!   :)  JOY!

Not hungry - had late, light dinner of part of Green Chef meal - sauteed kale/tomato / squash / slice cajun chicken

*Made an old recipe of a Keto fudge today - maybe had 2 teaspoons throughout the day // No RX Bar today. 

11 pm - Sleepy / Happy / At Peace. Grateful for this journey.

SO GLAD I HAVEN'T REACTED TO AGAVE OR BAI!! As I want to ENJOY these going forward! 

So far, the only things that caused an IBS flare up were maybe a homemade tomato soup DURING W30 
& last week - perhaps a broccoli/cabbage stirfry - that caused a potty day - but NO Cramps or pain!

Was thinking today - so grateful that I did W30 during Quarantine, as otherwise, I may have "eaten my way through it"!

I most likely would have gained wt and been miserable!

Instead, with lovely W30, I LOST wt, felt healthy, happy, full & satisfied, and DELIGHTED to have a plan and

 PATH to follow that's SUSTAINABLE!

Will post some recipes here & in the RECIPE Section.

 PEACH Collagen Smoothie 

Place a scoop Collagen in Bullet glass, stir in about a cup or so of *BAI. Add 3 slices fz Peaches / 1/4 tsp almond extract & about 2 tsp AGAVE. *I use pineapple/coconut BAI or regular Cococnut BAI *OR use Coconut Water if on W30 & omit Agave.
Blend & enjoy!

______________________________

CUCUMBERS IN VINEGAR - A nice side with veggies (yellow squash / green beans / tomatoes)

Peel & slice 1 medium cucumber 

Heat 1/3 cup water in microwave; stir in 3/4 tsp salt

Add 1/3 cup White Vinegar - I like Modena

If not on W30, add Tbsp Agave or sugar / or to taste // Omit if on W30

Pour into a pretty bowl & add cucumbers. Refrigerate at least 15 min before serving. Will keep for several days in refrig.

* Before serving, can add sweet onion / tomatoes / dill or other herbs

May 6, Wednesday/ Day 52

more breakout on nose today! Put some treatment on it

way off plan yesterday & have been slipping up during testing. Finding it hard to do pure W30 days in between testing.

its been so wonderful to add back some things - hard to let them go! 
 

Will test wheat again today & perhaps go back to W30 several days & slowly add back some things &/or test more
