better day

Returning to plant based has helped so I proved I can have non plants but should limit them.
oh...the journey to feel the best I can feel is NEVER DULL!

frankly, frustrated

tummy teeter totter lately...yes I eat meat and fish and poultry again and don't want to attribute my tummy woes to a return to doing that, more so suspect fried foods or grilling in a pan on the stove as the culprit. Then I have to wonder if it is gall bladder flare up or what the heck is going on.
Frustrating when I try to eliminate foods that I feel are not my inside's friends and then still can't seem to lose weight or feel the best I can feel. Just venting...not so down in the dumps I will go on strike and not eat or eat anything and everything because who cares, it doesn't matter. Just venting. Thanks for letting me vent...hahaha feeling better now.

Teeter totter tummy

Trying my best to feel my best but challenges prevail. The reality is I have an AI disease or condition and that is what I am dealing with. Inflammation and stress wreak havoc with whatever I do and don't do as far as eating and drinking.
Breathing...relaxing...getting back to writing again. PEACE!

Been a while...

For a while I could not get on this blog, but this time I was able to so here goes...
Tried vegan lifestyle plus gluten free and soy free...felt pretty good but it got so boring I slipped into flexitarian which means I tried to eat plant based but occasionally had non-plant foods.
At the moment I am still gluten free and will always be. soy is not my friend still and eggs and I try my best to be dairy free too...but I missed broiled fish and do have pork and chicken and a little beef, ground mostly in chili or sauces. Life is good, I still take thyroid meds and always will. I get tested every few months...can't lose weight and don't obsess about it.
I love Udi's plain white bread toasted and hard cider if I want alcohol for a change. I do drink regular coffee. My guilty pleasure is having a caramel frappe (no whipped cream or drizzle) from McDonald's.
Hoping that whoever might read this is happy with their food and beverage choices and their quality of life has been improved by what they ingest. HAPPY is a choice!

chick pea bars or vegan blonde brownie...I googled it and came across a blog with a recipe I thought might work for me and adapted it. You can do the same and adapt it to your liking. I am keeping them in the fridge. They are gf ef df sf but not sugar free and have mini choc chips (Enjoy Life). They are delicious!

GF noodle casserole...not the age old tuna anymore.

I used to love to make and eat tuna noodle casserole...wellllll now that I am trying to be a vegan I decided to try making a variation. I boiled GF noodles and sauteed chopped mushrooms in olive oil then thickened it with GF baking mix and added rice milk until desired thickness, stirring constantly. I also added salt and pepper. My salad has Romaine lettuce, grape tomatoes, chopped onion and carrots and cucumber. I spritzed the salad with extra virgin olive oil and added salt and pepper. YUM!
