Well - I'm 37 today!
I was going to take the opportunity to take a day off from blogging.............but I decided you deserve more clean recipes. And I love sharing recipes if it will help someone else eat clean and feel better.
Everyone was asking me what I was going to do for my birthday. Well, nothing out of the ordinary. Everyday that I am feeling better is a gift. I'm not feeling 100%. I'm still struggling along on some aspects but my adrenal fatigue is gone (for now) and my Candida is somewhat under control. So I'm just going to celebrate by doing what I have been doing all year.
I'm going to the gym for a short and intense high intensity interval training session. And by the way - I did 10 one legged squats consecutively on each leg this month. NOT BAD FOR AN OLD DOLL - as my mom would say. Yes - I'm bragging. Its frigging awesome. And kind of unbelievable considering the shape I was in a year ago. Any suggestions on a new fitness goal?
Then I'm going to make lunch for a friend and her kids. Because who the hell can make us lunch - way to confusing and stressful with our list of restrictions. And I don't see this friend often so its going to be a treat.
And then I'm going to hang out with my kids and hubby for the rest of the day. Enjoy some sunshine and probably bake myself a cake. And supper. Because what restaurant serves Candida-diet friendly food. None.
Actually I tried baking myself a grain, egg and dairy free cake yesterday. It didn't work (at all) so we ate it as a pudding. Black bean and zucchini pudding. Yum.
Another regular day in our house. And that's okay. I don't need over-the-top birthday celebrations. What I need is to get myself healthy so EVERYDAY is worth celebrating. So I have the energy to enjoy each day. And I'm doing that by eating at home, eating clean and getting to bed by 10. Even on my birthday.
So here is a quick recipe from my archives..........................its quick and easy and will help fill you up when you are desperate for a low-carb, Candida-diet friendly snack.
Have a great day! I know I will.
