Supper: Lipton cup-a-soup (vegetable), raspberry cereal bar, nectarine, orange juice

February 9th

I'm sick and have reverted back to my first-trimester stand-bys from when I was prego with the boys. Nothing else is appealing. Plus I know these foods generally stay down! Here's hoping the antibiotics kick in soon.

Breakfast, 7am
4 pieces whole wheat toast with butter

Snack, 10am
4 strawberries, handful of green grapes, wedge of cheddar cheese

Lunch, 12:30
Sushi: 9pc California roll, 4 pc Ko-Doraku roll (fat roll with tempura shrimp, avocado & spicy sauce), side salad with ginger dressing

Supper, 7pm
2 grilled cheese sandwiches: whole wheat bread, lots of butter, processed cheese

I've been a good girl and didn't give into the craving I had to treat myself with a Cadbury Creme Egg and Minute Maid lemonade. I drank lots and lots of ice cold water.

Certainly not a candida diet approved day, but these are my comfort foods and I needed them today.

Moan and groan

Today started out ok - oatmeal with blueberries. I had a decent enough lunch: bean quesadillas with tomato, carrot and goat's cheese. With sour cream and fresh guacamole for dipping. Then I raided dear hubby's chocolate supply. Yummilicious! Supper came mostly out of a box: processed fish cakes (lots of sugar, salt) and homemade sweet potato and carrot fries with curry dip.

I'm tired. It's possible I have a thyroid problem - routine bloodwork came back with low levels. This would explain the extreme tiredness lately, and a few other weird symptoms I've been having. but it could also be I'm pushing myself too hard.

We'll see.

I'll try to stay on track and keep up with my updates.

Today's creation: Pumpkin Currant muffins

2 eggs
2 cups spelt flour
2 cups pure pumpkin puree
1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 tsp baking soda
2/3 cup oil
splash of vanilla
handful of currants
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice mix

Mix everything together and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
