What Did You Have For Lunch Today?

Recommended Posts

My husband is working insane hours for the holidays so it is just me and the kiddo today. Gonna steam and candy some carrots to have with my leftover turkey. I think I have a little fresh cheese left I can fry up to have with it. I'll throw together some tapioca pudding for dessert and eat it while it's still warm.

An amazingly good salad.

Hearts of romaine, watercress, raddicio (sp?), a fresh sliced perfectly ripened bosc pear, creamy goat cheese, walnuts and a balsamic reduction. I tried to think of what would make it better and couldn't think of anything but how good it was. It was that good.


Positive improvement from elimination diet. Mother dx'd by Mayo Clinic in late 1980s. Negative blood tests and Upper & Lower GI biopsy. Parathyroidectomy 12/09. Recurring high calcium level 4/10. Gluten-free 4/10. Soy & Dairy Free 6/10. Corn free 7/10. Grain free except rice 8/10. Legume free 6/11. Fighting the battle of the battle within myself, and I'm going to win!

As of 2/12, tolerating dairy, corn, legumes and some soy, but I limit soy to tamari sauce or modest soy additives. Won't ever try quinoa again!

Discoid Lupus from skin biopsy 2011, discovered 2/12 when picking up medical records. Systemic Lupus Dx 6/12. Shingles 10/12.

It's snowing yet again. Man, I'm sick of winter already! :wacko:

To remedy that, I am making Black Bean Soup with Chiles en Adobo, Lime and BACON. Probably some sort of fruit. But all the winter stuff is rock hard or pulpy or putrid.

Lazy- pan fried hot dog bites with broccoli. I get frozen organic veggies

at Trader Joe's for a good price, and they have the BEST veggies, and

that way I don't have to do any of the chopping or deal with stuff going

bad on my counter or in my fridge. Is a win-win!

I don't know why I am torturing myself, but my craving today is for a coconut milk, mango and raspberry smoothie with a touch of lime juice. It is currently -14C so my teeth will probably be chattering in a few moments... :blink:

You, quite frankly, are as crazy as me. I drink milkshakes all winter long. My husband thinks I'm a nut. I'm like... you married me so I guess you're the one with the problem! :lol:

I actually cooked today. I felt like a burger so I grilled one up on my new Cuisinart grill. Made some arepas and made some queso fresco for it. I meant to fry some green beans but remembered I was going to about the same time the burgers were getting done so I just popped a can of them open instead. Not nearly as good, but at least it was a vegetable.

You're right - we are both crazy. My lips can practically turn blue yet I keep on with those smoothies.

But today is a soup day. I made pasta e fagioli and it is excellent. Today I am also making an artisan loaf of bread, with a slit slightly off centre and heavily dusted with flour, and awesome flavour. I love that I can form it into a loaf with my hands.

My husband did some spoiling today. He cubed up some potatoes for hash then added ham, sauteed mushrooms and softly-scrambled eggs with scallions. He had his with melted Cheddar; mine was without. I just love that type of lunch, especially on a cold -20C blizzarding day.

I want your snow... send it to me please.... heck i'd take the negative temps with it....

At any rate, i had an apple (a rather large one at that) with peanutbutter and honey as a dip. Its been a couple of months since i had a raw apple. Nice change of pace me thinks and my tummy didn't act up at all (outside of when i got too full, but who's doesn't?) :lol:

You can have as much snow as you want. Honestly. We've had lots of snow and cold for six solid weeks and have about five more months ahead of this. Snow looks pretty for awhile but it gets sickening having to bundle up all the time and do the sidewalk and driveway every other day. The streets are slick. Can you tell I dislike our winters? If we only had three months of snow it would be fine but when you have six months to look forward to it gets tired very quickly. It just seems to drag on and on and on and on... We have high incidences of Seasonal Affective Disorder here.
