Reintro Day 4

Day 4 of Reintroduction! Today we got to have non-gluten grains.  So we were going to have rice and corn, but...we ended up skipping the rice. I was going to do oatmeal for breakfast but then I realized that I make it with brown sugar and I usually top it with a splash of heavy whipping cream - so that didn't happen either.

I was super excited about corn - not because I missed it but damn I'm tired of broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and sugar snap peas. Squash and zucchini prices here are through the roof right now. Asparagus is only slightly better. I don't care for either cooked from frozen, so fresh or nothing for that. Green beans I just haven't been to Publix to restock.

Mr. P. is hanging in there. He's down 15 pounds and I'm down 13. That's according to our scale - which is probably fairly accurate for him because he's been using it, even though it wasn't working for awhile. Who know on mine. A few more weeks and we'll see.

So for breakfast I went with the usual. Again I overcooked the eggs, but not as bad. They were mostly edible.

Lunch was chicken salad and a Larabar.

I ended up going home from work around 2:15 because I'm sick! WTH?! First it's very, very rare that I get sick. Second, 30+ days of REAL, WHOLE, SUPER NUTRITIOUS FOOD and I end up sick? I woke up with a sore throat, figured with the temps bouncing all over the map here in Florida it was having the fan and AC back on (seriously, it's been 85 degrees the last 2 days and now we're back to 60s and 70s for a while). Well - not the case. By noon it hadn't gone away and while it was 76 degrees in the office I was fine, then freezing, fine, then freezing. Totally felt like I had a fever. So I went home. According to my digital thermometer I was below normal (which is normal for me). I couldn't deal with the sore throat any longer, so I popped 2 DayQuil liquid gel and hoped for some relief. Didn't help. I wanted hot tea with honey, but we aren't to the sugar point yet. I found some sugar free Halls drops and went for it, even though they have both soy and artificial sweetener. It was wonderful...until it was done dissolving and we were back to square one. I tried to nap - right after I finally fell asleep the same wrong number that called me yesterday on my cell phone called AGAIN. So I got up and laid on the couch and watched a show on Tiny Houses.

When Mr. P. got home he made some guacamole to go with organic corn tortillas he picked up. So I had some of those - they were yummy. Then he made dinner.

Sauteed Pork Chops with Vinegar and Rosemary, corn and the usual vegetable mix. 

Before bed I also had 2 spoonfuls of Yacon Syrup hoping it would sort of stick long enough for me to get to sleep. No such luck. At least it's natural sugar.
