Well today is better than yesterday- that's a move in the right direction!! A big thank you to all of you out there who not only read my blog, but emailed or called to offer kind words of encouragement after yesterdays post! I appreciate it!!
Some of you have growing concerns that what I'm doing may be a little dangerous due to the lack of variety of foods and vitamins & nutrients. I checked with some of my sources, and while I agree it seems a little drastic, it's far less dangerous than the drugs that I would now be on. And for those dear friends that don't really know just how painful this disease it, if you knew, you'd know why I am doing this.
And the good news is- today is better than yesterday!! That means (by my un-scientific calculations) that tomorrow should be great again! (wishful thinking!) You should see the bag of carrots I bought yesterday at Farm Boy- it's the biggest bag of carrots I've ever seen 10lbs!!
I even took my mom's advice and bought parsnips and turnips. Eek. But to my suprise I sort of enjoyed the parsnips. I cut them up like shoestring french fries with sweet potato and carrots and I roasted them in the oven with olive oil and seat salt. I cooked them until they were golden & crispy. Not bad! But when I went to make them again for dinner, I just nibbled at a few- I think I am sick of them already.
I'm heading to my mom & dad's for a visit tonight with my boy. It's sort of our Friday night ritual. I say I'm heading over for a visit right before dinner and of course I always stay and have a delicious dinner with them! Tonight, I will pack up a few carrots and a turnip to bring. And watch my mom enjoy a nice wine while I curse at her under my breathe!
Stay tuned! I think tomorrow we will be back to good! xo
